City Pages' Description

If you need fire-roasted Korean salt, fresh lotus pickles, or more elaborate seaweed-based bar snacks than any of your neighbors, the market at Dong Yang should be first on your list. If you need Korean comfort foods cooked to order by a group of Korean moms and grandmas with an ocean-deep reservoir of cooking know-how, then you need to report to the lunch room in the back of Dong Yang market. The room isn't much to look at--with the Korean satellite television, concrete block walls, and counter-service ambience, it's more about utility than design--but if you want to eat like the favorite son of a family full of great cooks, this is the place. Please note, dinner orders are only taken until 7:30 p.m.

    Of course, we love King's Fine Korean in Fridley—who doesn't?—but when we want our kimchi a little more low-key, i.e. sans karaoke, we head up Central Avenue and stop at Dong Yang. Inside the massive Asian grocery, which sells everything from household furniture to gallon jars of Korea's national pickle, a small lunchroom in back is staffed by Korean women who will feed you like...

    Voted Best Korean Restaurant in 2010! Order “No. 13” and mix everything in the bowl before you eat it, dig for the crusty golden rice at the bottom, and don’t forget to pile on the chili paste.

    The stone bowl is amazing. Don't disturb the rice on the bottom for the first few minutes so it continues to cook and gets nice and chewy. It's the best

    The sauce for bibimbap is kept on the top shelf of the fridge that has the sodas.

    Get some kalbi (short ribs) if you like beef! Also it's communal eating, oder some dishes and share together! Novices should try some bibimbap!

    Try the Kalbi - Best Kalbi outside Korea. (via @Foodspotting)
