Dookbaeki is a new eatery opening in Coquitlam that specializes in Korean stews and hot stone bowls. The brand currently has two locations in Edmonton. Dookbaeki Coquitlam is their first location in Metro Vancouver.
What is Dookbaeki?
Dookbaeki is a type of black or brown, medium-sized bowl made of loess.
In some parts of the world, windblown dust and silt blanket the land. This layer of fine, mineral-rich material is called loess.
Loess bowls are used in Korean cuisine to cook and to serve stews and soups.
Loess bowls are thick and heavy which means the contents take longer to reach cooking temperature.
However, they have the benefit of retaining the temperature usually until the end of your meal.
Boiled Broth for Two Days
The restaurant boils their broth for two days to get all the nutrition and flavour the bone and meat have including protein, calcium, collagen, vitamin E and so forth.
