News - Hip Hip Hooray! Dong Yang Is Not Closing!

About a month or two ago, we did a post to find out the truth behind a supa sad rumor about Dong Yang Inn possibly closing down. A few minutes ago, we received the following messages from some Dong Yang insiders...

"I am the second son of Mrs. Potts and I just wanted to let you know that Dong Yang Inn will not be closing any time soon. Please come by and see us because we will still be here. Mahalo Nui Loa."

"I have read some of your concerns and I have been hearing it from customers that have been coming by. We will not be closing so please come by and see us. FYI I am the second son of the owner. Mahalo Nui Loa."

감사합니다 (thank you) for the inside scoops and please tell your Mom (Ms. Potts) that we are relieved and over joyed to hear that Dong Yang Inn will live on. Long Live The Dong!

News - Dong Yang Closing?

I just heard from my bro who heard from his sister-in-law that she heard from somebody that Dong Yang Inn (Wahiawa), one of Hawaii's oldest and bestest Korean bbq, is shutting down. Something about their lease is up and won't be renewed and they not sure if they will reopen in another location. If anybody can confirm or deny this please let us know. If it's true, better get in my last few helpings of some of the best Korean grinds and meat jun (2nd place in the Meat Jun Mayhem).

Dear Dong Yang,
If you are closing, please reopen in another location...preferrably closer to my house...maybe in my backyard...so I can't eat your grinds every day. LONG LIVE THE DONG!
