Moo Bong Ri - Oakland

This is in the large space in the back of Koryo Plaza. Apparently it’s a branch of a Korean chain.

Soondae ($17). I’ve had better, this didn’t have a lot of flavor, seemed heavier on the noodles than some versions. Might have been better in soup. The kimchis and cucumbers were all first-rate as were the ssamjang? and the pepper paste at bottom right (not gochujang, I didn’t catch what the server called it).

Bo ssam ($30) was very good as was the radish and oyster stuff that came with it.

Good place, I’ll go back. I think all the other customers were Korean and the server didn’t speak much English.
