at Jip Nagan Godeungeo
-Changgok, Sujeong, Seongnam, Gyeonggi, Republic of Korea-
Jip Nagan Godeungeo is a Korean restaurant. Specializes in oven-roasted fish. The name of the place means “the runaway (jip nagan) mackerel (godeungeo),” which doesn’t really make sense in Korean either.
Although godeungeo is not my favorite fish, I went with it as the restaurant’s eponymous dish.
Unlike the other varieties on the menu, the godeungeo was sourced from Norway, which seems to be a big supplier of fish for Korea these days (see also 12.298 Kall Inkokt Lax).
For 12,000 won, the meal came with a side of roast fish + sotbab (pot-sticker rice) + soup + 13 refillable banchan.
Not bad. The fish was a bit dry, but nicely seasoned. The banchan were fresh and varied. It was a tasty, well-balanced meal.
