at Imjin Jangeo
-Oksu, Seongdong, Seoul, Republic of Korea-
w W and DJ
Imjin Jangeo (임진장어) is a Korean restaurant. Specializes in grilled (gui) freshwater eel (jangeo). Latest addition to the Oksu dining scene (2-minute walk from home). 23,000 won per eel (not cheap).
The food was pretty good. The eel came in a sweet-soy glaze reminiscent of Japanese unagi sauce. The sides were decent. If only a bit cheaper, the establishment could become a regular neighborhood stop.
