Some Korean-American friends took me to Kimko Seafood in Ellicott City this weekend for Korean style sashimi. This place was mentioned under a different name, Bethany Seafood in a post by howchow a while ago. It's known to have lobster sashimi. I also found out from my friends that they often serve San Nakji, live octopus sashimi.

Unfortunately, when we arrived they had run out of the octopus for the week.

We ordered the large sashimi platter/dinner for the 5 of us. I believe it was $200. You start off with a small cup of congee, and then they brought out 20 different plates of bonchon. This included a large seafood pancake, fishes prepared in various forms- grilled/fried/raw, seaweed, edamame, potato salad, grilled chicken gizzards, rice with roe, seaweed soup, salmon collarbone, clams, and octopus.

The sashimi platter is served on a meter long plank. Korean style sashimi is also eaten with kochujang, the red chile pepper sauce, as well as soy sauce and wasabi. My friend told me Koreans also prefer to chewier pieces of sashimi, the most popular being halibut.
The lobster sashimi is pretty incredible. They take a fresh lobster from the tank, dispatch it, and right away, bring the tail split open and cut up topped with some roe. The remainder goes into a soup at the end of the meal. The meat is sweet, had a little bite at first, and then melts into the mouth.

I also loved the fresh sea cucumber sashimi. It is not at all liked the cooked sea cucumber I've had. It has a mild briny flavor and has the texture of raw octopus. We also had the abalone and sea squirt sashimi. Abalone reminded me of a mushroom, and the sea squirt, while bitter at first, was just ok.

The lobster soup is in a spicy broth also loaded with fish. It was wonderful.

I've never been to Annandale Seafood.


Nor have I. pras, you're asking for a comparison of a really obscure Ellicott City Korean Seafood house with a really obscure Annandale Seafood house - in 7.5 years of running this website, this is one of the most improbable questions I've ever seen asked. Not that there's anything wrong with that; only that I think the odds of an answer will be fairly slim. But I am intrigued and fascinated by the question itself.

What do you know about Annandale Seafood? Could you start a thread for it?

Cheers,
Rocks

Don--

I like that I intrigued you. Will write a review in a bit. I didn't realize that Korean sashimi was so obscure. After having it once I have thought about the meal ever since. I think its about time to trek back to Annandale!
