Uncle 39 is a Korean pub. Offers a range of anju, primarily suited to accompany beer, also soju, mostly Korean in style, and Koreanized versions of western dishes.
On a walk-walk with Louis Le Pieux, we saw the bright lights and dropped by for a quick snack-snack.
I’m not a huge fan of golbaengi, which has been featured only once on GMTD, during Cycle 1 (see 1.163 Golbaengi with Sari), but W loves it – in fact, that prior occasion in 2010 was under similar circumstances prompted by W.
It was okay. A bit too spicy, too many onions. The noodles were nicely moist (this type of noodle can turn out dry and stuck together). Pretty good all around.
