Dick Blomster’s Korean Diner is expanding to Santa Rosa!
If you haven’t been to the original Guerneville eatery owned by David Blomster, famous for its Seoul fries, “Korean Fried Crack” (aka fried chicken), bimibap rice bowls, kimchi pancakes and other American-diner-meets-Korean-BBQ fare, you’re in for a treat. Popping up nightly at Pat’s Restaurant and Bar (16236 Main St., Guerneville) Dick Blomster’s is an under-the-radar sake-fueled funfest. And now that Korean BBQ spot is coming to Santa Rosa.
Following the same model at its West County sibling, the Santa Rosa Blomster’s will take over Don Taylor’s Omelette Express (112 Fourth St., Santa Rosa) Wednesday through Sunday at 5p.m. starting Oct. 1, 2015.
The larger-than-life Taylor has hosted a number of pop-up restaurants in his breakfast/lunch-only space over the years, but after hearing about his successful Korean diner, Taylor reached out to Blomster to see if there was interest.
The two clicked. “He has a great track record and very interesting food,” said Taylor.
“Much of my current kitchen will be spending a few days a week in the new location and we will be serving the same menu,” said Blomster. And that’s great news for late night Korean-BBQ and sake cravings.
