Agu Jjim


at Masan Agu Jjim

-Sinsa, Gangnam, Seoul, Republic of Korea-

with W and DJ, K family

One of my all-time favorite dishes, though the wholly apparent spice factor prevents us from having it too often, having a 4.5-year-old in tow.  This was just the 2nd time in the 2-year-plus history of the GMTD.

The sauce at this restaurant, however, somehow, was mild beyond belief.  It was so mild that we wondered whether the chili had been genetically engineered to eliminate any trace of heat or the chili had been replaced with something else but supplemented with red food coloring.  It was pretty good, notwithstanding the disconcerting sensation of seeing all that red yet feeling none of it.  I actually don’t like food to be overly spicy, but spicy food should be spicy at least a little.  That said, if one wants this dish but can’t handle the heat, then this is the place.
