Pungcheon Jangeo – Regular
at Pungcheon Jangeo Maeul
-Jangji, Songpa, Seoul, Republic of Korea-
As previously covered, the King Special Large eel costs 78,000 won for 1 kg (2 eels), plus 39,000 won for additional eels (presumably 500 g each) = 78,000 won per kg. The regular eel costs 66,000 won for 660 g (2 eels), plus 33,000 won for additional eels (presumably 330 g each) = 99,000 won per kg. Which is odd, come to think of it, because regular eels tend to be less meaty, less juicy, less tasty, so why would anyone pay more for an inferior product?
On our way home from the cabin, IZ and I dropped by for dinner. We didn’t have the capacity to finish 1 kg of eel, so we ordered the smaller portion, the regular eels, and barely finished it all.
