Deep-Fried Pork Riblets


at Sinchon Yang Ggochi

-Sinchon, Seodaemun, Seoul, Korea-

with KIT

Dropping by KIT’s restaurant, I found him  frantically struggling to handle the sudden arrival of a 50-person party, some kind of student group celebrating something or other, with only himself and a single server on duty.  Orders weren’t being taken, food wasn’t getting served, tables weren’t being cleared.   So I donned an apron and got to work, making use of a skills first developed at my mom’s cafe during my high school years and later honed at my uncle’s sushi restaurant when I was in law school.  Afterwards, we went upstairs for a quick bite at a Chinese lamb skewer joint.

The ribs were unremarkable, though unusual for their cross-cut form. Not a particularly noteworthy dish for this 300th meal milestone.
