from Yetnal Daepa Saeng Gogi Kimchi Jjigae
-Changgok, Sujeong, Seongnam, Gyeonggi, Republic of Korea-
with the Family
Yetnal Daepa Saeng Gogi Kimchi Jjigae (옛날 대파 생고기 김치찌개) is a Korean restaurant. As the overly descriptive name of the place would suggest, it specializes in kimchi jjigae, made with daepa (scallion) + saeng gogi (fresh meat); despite the “yetnal (old),” the restaurant is probably very new.
W ordered a pot of kimchi jjigae upon seeing the restaurant’s high rating on the delivery app.
The kimchi jjigae was excellent. Perfectly aged kimchi + pork + tofu, all in huge gorgeous chunks. Rich, luscious broth, just the right amount of spice and tang, so good that we used the leftovers to cook a second round of ramyeon + SPAM.
