If you’re looking for an adventurous dinner, look no further than Jae Bu Do, East Hollywood’s Korean seafood BBQ. This is traditional KBBQ turned up a notch, with clams, giant oysters, and other unnamed, unrecognizable, and often living sea creatures being tossed onto your grill by an unamused server. The fish by itself can be bland, so you will definitely want to make use of the various hot sauces provided (that’s not ketchup in the ketchup bottles). You’ll leave smelling strongly of smoke and most likely with burn marks on your tongue from the boiling seawater, and also with the memory of watching an abalone die a slow death on the fire. But the evening will be a fun one, as long as you don’t bring the kind of people who only eat well-done steaks.
