Husband is on business trip in Seoul for a week. He visited one of his friend who lives in Gangwon-do in the weekend and his friend bought him to one of the famous Dakgalbi Restaurant in Chuncheon - Dongnamu-jib Dakgalbi! Dongnamu means Log wood and jib is house - I guess the name is after the restaurant which built with log-wood.
The restaurant is full house especially in the weekend. It is one of the mat-jib (맛집) that recommend by 3 major Korea TV Channel ~ KBS, SBS and MBC so people won't mind to drive all the way to Chuncheon for the Dakgalbi.
Each table is equipped with this large grill pan in the centre of the table - standard setup for Dakgalbi restaurant.
The order menu with price listed. The "T" stands for 2 pax or 2 servings. Korean like to use the Chinese character "正" to represent no.1 till no.5.
Dongchimi - cold radish soup is served right after order placed. The dongchimi in Korea usually contain gochugaru, different from the dongchimi that served in Uncle Jang Dakgalbi in Malaysia.
2 Servings of Dakgalbi which consists of boneless chicken parts, cabbage, green onions, rice cake and red and spicy marinate sauce. The secret of making the dakgalbi famous is lies on their own special marinate sauce.
Koreans usually like to left at least 1/4 of the serving for the fried rice later. The fried rice is not included with the dakgalbi so you need to order the rice separately. The balance of dakgalbi will be move aside, and server will cook the fried rice which consist of lettuce and the spicy red sauce.
