Premium Tuna Sashimi Set
from Jib euro Gan Chamchi
-Changgok, Sujeong, Seongnam, Gyeonggi, Republic of Korea-
with the Family
Jib euro gan Chamchi (집으로 간 참치) is a Korean-Japanese restaurant. As the name would suggest – “The tuna (chamchi) that has gone (euro gan) home (jib)” – the establishment specializes in tuna sashimi via home delivery.
4 options for tuna sashimi sets:
Drinking Alone Set = 22 pieces = 25,000 won
Couple Set = 30 pieces = 32,000 won
Premium Set = 36 pieces, including hwangsaechi = 42,000 won
Special Set = 36 pieces, all tuna = 51,000 won
We opted for the Premium – I actually like hwangsaechi (see 11.286 Hwangsaechi Nigirizushi); we even got an extra order.
It could’ve been quite good. The quality of the fish was fine, nice selection of cuts. However, the meat was still frozen solid by the time we set out the spread and sat down to eat, as evident in the stiffness of the slices above. We should’ve waited a bit but just went ahead, all the while complaining that it was too cold to taste anything. Next time, I shall strive for patience.
