Gold Mountain Shashlyk
at his in-laws’ cabin
-Anseong, Gyeonggi, Republic of Korea-
with IZ, MtG + SJ
MtG invited me to hang out at his wife’s parents’ cabin. I agreed so long as he did all the cooking. He agreed so long as I brought the booze.
At my request, he made his signature shashslyk (see generally 2.310 Gold Mountain Shashlyk).
Still great, after all these years.
I remain convinced that I could replicate the dish by just cooking unmarinated meat, squeezing fresh lemon juice, and tossing with sliced onions.
Jangan Myeonok (장안면옥) is a Korean restaurant. Specializes in northern Korean cuisine, famous for their Pyongyang-style mul naeng myeon.
Upon arrival earlier in the day, before setting up at the cabin, we had lunch at Jangan Myeonok.
The mul naeng myeon was excellent. The broth was on the sweeter side, more like Seoul-style broth, but well-balanced. The noodles were a bit light in buckwheat flavor, but nicely textured. I could eat this any day.
The rest of the items that we ordered weren’t so great.
