Mahkgulleh (막걸리) fermented rice drink, one kettle was 10,000 won (revision: it was 13,000 won for the first kettle, then 10,000 won after the first) and with each kettle you get three dishes as part of the deal.
Kettle 2 brought us .... (kettle 2.1) Seafood and egg jhun
(kettle 2.2) Fresh oysters
Kettle 3 brought us live octopus, actually kettle 3.1 + 3.2 + 3.3 all, live octopus with sesame oil and dried seaweed.
Kettle 4 brought us grilled fish(4.1), raw crab marinated in soy sauce(4.2), and salt roasted shrimp(4.3)
To finish it all off Mahkgulleh and kimchee!
Step two, add a few spoons of the kong nhamhul gook bab soup into the fried egg and let the heat slightly coat the raw yolk.

Happy winter for now.....
