I am struggling to find the name of this restaurant.
Let’s do this step by step.
This is the website (or so I hope).
This is ONE confusing website I can’t find the navigation menu……
Okay! Found the restaurant section…let’s see…..
BAM. BONGCHU CHICKEN MOTHERFUCKERS! Okay. I think the Korea name is Bongchu Jjimdak…..don’t quote on me that. I don’t even know what the website is.
Hell I don’t even know what my delicious dish is called…let’s see…Andong Jjimdak???? Braised Chicken? Screw it. You just need to know that this was super delicious and you need to put it in your stomach like ASAP.
This was a random meal.
I didn’t really have a restaurant in mind that day, but after walking 1.5 hours at the Olympic Park I was starving and needed to CONSUME BADLY.
So these two huge towers, and thought to myself there must be food in there. Hopped on a cab and pointed to the towers with this hungry look in my eyes. Think my cabbie was a bit scared. Got to the towers and saw that it was only full of offices which means no restaurants.
Major shit. But never fear, because in Korea a mall is just only minutes away. BAM. In the mall I went.
Walked around in the mall, and saw this interesting restaurant that was situated in the corner. And there were people still lining up even though it was quite late (130ish). Must be good right?
Went over, and saw this awesome picture of a chicken dish. Sold!
Told the server I was the only one eating, she smiled and quickly brought me inside and sat me down.
I don’t need to line up. Lonely eating for the win bitches!!!
Andong Jjimdak is made with chicken, various vegetables marinated in a ganjang (Korean soy sauce) based sauce. The name literally means “steamed chicken of Andong.”Sounds like a very boring dish but it isn’t. It’s really good chicken dish. I had to eat rice with it of course because everything in Korea seems like you need to eat with rice.
The waiter also asked me if I was okay with spicy like 3 times. Do I look like one of those people that can’t eat spicy?
GIVE ME FULL SPICE.
AND HE DID.
AND IT CAME.
AND I CONQUERED IT.
