Blomster’s opens in Santa Rosa, Calif.: ZenKimchi
David Blomster opened his second Dick Blomster’s Korean Diner officially Nov. 13 as the afternoon and night shift in Don Taylor’s Omelette Express, located in the historic Railroad Square district of Santa Rosa, a city about an hour north of San Francisco.
On Nov. 17, I caught up with Blomster and Taylor, as the latter was pouring shots of homemade 12-year-old ginseng-infused soju for his business partners to celebrate the new collaboration.
Koreafornian Cooking readers already know about Blomster’s Korean Diner as we reviewed his original popup Korean diner, called Dick Blomster’s, in Guerneville, Calif, in 2013. Open since late 2012, west Sonoma County residents embraced the restaurant enough that he was able to buy out his original landlord but also expand his concept to Santa Rosa, a city about an hour north of San Francisco.
