Based on J. Golds blessed article "Korea Town Top 40", some friends and I decided to hit OB Bear. It's in a real lousy neighborhood at 7th @ Vermont. We were the only non-Koreans in side and we received terrible service. People arrive after us and received their food before us. The staff didn't even look our way. They brought us a pitcher of Hite beer and let us stew. OB Bear is a brand of bear but they dont serve it in pitchers.
Gosh, this all sounds so negative. I did have a good time. The beer was cold. We sat upstairs where we were practically the only men. The hot wings were good. Great maybe if you like em candied and tangy. The squid and noodles was also good. The portions were huge.
