Shabu Shabu (with Fishballs)


at Cheongjeongok

-Seongsu, Seongdong, Seoul, Republic of Korea-

with W, Mom & Dad

6 pieces for 2,000 won.

Whereas the lunch set comes with beef, but I don’t really eat much meat these days, I get a couple side orders of fishballs.  They’re not the typical mushy Korean eomuk, more like the firm and chewy Japanese satsumaage (see 3.319 JPN Satsumaage) – quite nice.  (I could go full on vegetarian, but prefer to chew a bit of protein.)

In the inaugural post on this restaurant, I forgot to show the kal-guksu that come with the meal; the special set comes with tri-colored noodles, which don’t taste different, but look kinda nice.
Cooked in the leftover broth as the penultimate course, just prior to the final juk course.
