70 Bobcha Taste of Korea recently replaced Moby Dick and Sushi Bar Kazumi. I first heard about it from mmm-yoso. We were in the area and weren’t originally planning on eating here, but when our lunch plans fell through, we noticed this was already open, so we decided to try it out. I was surprised at the quick turnaround, but once inside, it looked almost exactly the same.
The sushi bar was still there, as well as the fridge cases (now empty) that used to hold the fresh fish selection for Moby Dick. The tables were all the same too, there was just some small changes to the decor, adding some curtains and paintings.
The selection was a little small and nothing was particularly memorable.
Stir Fry Kimchi with Tofu
This was Mr. K’s choice. Warm kimchi was accompanied by cold raw tofu topped with sesame seeds. I though this dish was just alright and something I could easily make at home.
Soybean Paste Stew
This was on the salty side and you couldn’t really taste the fermented flavor that I like so much in a soybean paste stew.
Complimentary Mixed Rice
Steamed Spicy Ribs
This reminded me a lot like the Chinese tomato based stew my mom makes with a little bit of heat.
Overall, we weren’t very impressed with what we had, though there are many other items on the specials menu that seemed interesting. It was quite empty when we went so I’m not sure how this place will pan out.
