Lee's BBQ in oakland report

crimson | Jun 25, 200406:02 PM

After switching their menu for a while, what used to be (I think) Seoul Hae Jang Kook, has changed their name to Lee's BBQ and Soft Tofu Korean Restaurant at 3838 Telegraph Ave.

I've only been there for lunch but would love to go there for dinner sometime. Each time there I have been surprised by how good the overall meal is and how great a deal the lunchtime special is.

Lunch specials are from 11-3pm M-F only, but the best thing on the menu is the Spicy BBQ chicken for $5.99. It comes with small salad, rice, panchan, mungbean pancake, the chicken, then the sweet rice dessert drink at the end.

The chicken is very tender and cooked just right, while not too spicy for some, but with just enough to make it tasty. The panchan is very good with everything having a very fresh taste, especially the tofu. There were a few of non-Koreans and service seemed to be equal and good. Other dishes looked equally tasty.

This place is fast becoming my favorite Korean restaurant. It looks like their specialty are the BBQ chicken, tofu, and stews. I haven't tried the staples such as Bulgogi, but everything looks equally good.

The sign on the door says in Korean that there is parking in the back.
