Jangeo Sogeum Gui
at Jangeo Garden
-Silang, Cavite, Philippines-
with the Family, In-Laws
The In-Laws are in town – yay. For 2 full weeks – yay.
We spent the afternoon in Tagaytay Highlands (see most recently 7.278 John Wayne’s Prime Rib; see generally 5.222 Steamed Garlic Fish Fillet). Turns out that the In-Laws’ golf membership in Korea extends partnership benefits to Tagaytay Highlands. So if I’m really really really lucky, they could begin spending their annual golf holiday in the Philippines – yay.
For dinner, we dropped by Jangeo Garden on the way home.
The eel comes with veg wraps and other Korean bbq sides.
Generally, I tend to prefer salted eel, which allows for the flavor of the fish to come through (see for example 2.362 Grilled Hanbang Eel). Sauced eel – typically in a thickish soy-based glaze, sometimes spicy – is always good.
Here, both the salted and sauced are good.
The In-Laws were overwhelmed by the meal, yet another reason they may be tempted to come back – yay.
In fact, I got the impression that they finally began to sense why Koreans love living in the Philippines.
