BRIDGEPORT — The neighborhood has a new Korean BBQ restaurant.
It's called Do Eat Korean BBQ at 3141 S. Halsted St. — and it's open from 11 a.m.-10 p.m. seven days a week.
Do Eat's menu features many Korean BBQ staples.
There's the Bibimbap bowl, a rice bowl stacked with bean sprouts, carrots, mushrooms, spinach and a fried egg.
Other popular items include the soft tofu stew with mixed seafood ($8.99) and marinated beef cooked on a stone pan ($25.99).
You can have your beef dishes served already cooked out of the kitchen or cook it yourself at one of the restaurant's stone table stoves.
There's also the crispy kimchi pancake ($8.99). But be careful; this isn't your ordinary pancake. Do Eat's portions are giant.
Sue Jiang, the restaurant's owner, opened Do Eat in November. She saw an opportunity on the South Side, where she had trouble finding many Korean options.
"Most times when I want Korean food, I have to go to the North Side," said Jiang, who grew up in China.
Since opening, Jiang said, many college students exploring the 11th Ward's culinary scene have strolled in for a taste.
Do Eat is BYOB.
