We were supposed to come here last night to celebrate Cat's birthday, but heavy rain deterred us. We changed our reservations since it was New Year’s Day and all, and as soon as we got there proceeded to order the 1Samgyeopsal, 2Dwaeji Galbi and 3Maeun Jjukumi Bokkeum for good measure; and as usual Brendan ordered his favourite 4Kimchi Jjigae.
1thick, fatty slices of pork belly meat similar to uncured bacon
2pork ribs seasoned with a typical ganjang-based sauce or gochujang-based sauce (chilli pepper condiment)
3baby octopus mixed with spicy sauce and vegetables
4stew-like Korean dish, made with kimchi and other ingredients, such as scallions, onions, diced tofu, pork, and seafood
