Jang Tu in Oakland -- thanks to Ruth

foodnut | May 24, 200201:59 PM

Thanks to Ruth Lafler for sniffing out Jang Tu at 3838 Telegraph in Oakland. My boyfriend took me there last Saturday, and I assure you, it won't be the last time.

We got about 6 plates of panchan (I should have posted sooner before memory failed me...)-- daikon in a spicy sauce, napa kim chee (OK, but not as good as Seoul Kam II further down Telegraph), seaweed in a vinegar sauce, soy bean sprouts in sesame dressing, and some others.

We got an order of the Korean roll -- 4 huge rolls -- kind of like Futo Maki -- pickled daikon, julienned carrot and cucumber, imitation crab. Way more than enough for 2 people.

I had the dumpling and rice cake soup, which was very good -- and generous enough to provide me w/a lunch sized portion for the next day. Boyfriend had BBQ chicken in house sauce, which came on a sizzling platter w/rice and broth on the side. The platter carmelized the sauce on some of the pieces -- yum!

It was curiously empty on a Saturday night -- only 2 other tables besides ours were filled. Atmosphere was not great, but they do have some instruments and masks on the walls which were neat to look at. Service was attentive w/out being overbearing.
