East Bay Seoul

Ben & Minji

When we moved to East Bay from the city a couple months ago we were so excited to try all the korean options we couldn’t find in SF. If you love Korean food and need a good staple spot, or just looking to try korean food (besides fried chicken) for the first time, here’s our list of our favorite local places to check out.


The second night at our new apartment we immediately opened DoorDash and tried to find a Korean fried chicken place. We ordered from OBTown and it totally hit the spot. It’s a really authentic fried chicken restaurant. They have lots of sauce options, all of which are worth trying, but the Spicy Yang Nyum chicken is the best in our opinion. Goes extra well with soju and friends.
