Spicy Beef Galbijjim in JongnoThursday, June 30, 2011
|Spicy Galbijjim at Bujagalbi|
The place is right out Jongno 3-ga Station exit 2-1, so not far from my work.
The interior is just regular. I think there were tacky Christmas lights hanging and the place had a few ajossis and ajummas having some food with soju- a pretty laid back place.
We ordered the Spicy Galbijjim and it came out pretty fast. The tender pieces of meat were tender on the bone and it sat in a blood red broth. In the broth was also some sweet potato noodles, rice cake, mushrooms and some minari (edible chrysanthemum).
The food was spicy. Really spicy. Now, not spicy and flavorful and not spicy right up front, but spicy that lingered like a fused bomb.
Like I said, it was spicy, not really flavorful. I recommend you go to Dongin Dong for the real stuff.
