Steamed Shellfish at Gol Mok Gil in Seoul, Korea
My buddy Sean Choi from Groove Magazine is a Foodie's Foodie. He knows what's good in Korea and he often goes out of his way to find excellent, local Korean places. On Wednesday Night, he had a meet up with the writers of Groove Magazine and he was nice enough to invite me. If you might recall, I used to be their dining editor for a while, but I had to move on because I got too busy with work.

Anyway, the place he took us to was called Gol Mok Gil (길목길). It's a bit of a pain to find, but it's totally worth it. The house specialty is Steamed Shellfish (조개찜 48,000 for large). Here you get a large variety of mussels, razor clams, scallops, and a variety of cockles. Great stuff and you get it all in a giant pot so it creates a rich clam broth which is later used to make a Knife-cut Noodle Soup.

I also recommend you get an order of their potato pancakes (감자전). I later found out these came service- but I think they are included in their Panfried Variety (모듬전). Their Potato Pancakes are chock full of thin fluffy strands of potato that are panfried- it's like a potato cloud.
