If you’re not tolerable with spiciness, be prepared for “sausage” lips. :p

Bongchu jjimdak (Large) (KRW35,000)
This is a very appetising dish although spicy! The chicken is very deeply marinated with the sauce and tender. There are various vegetables such as potato, carrot, dried chillies and spring onions and also with noodles. All enough for 6-7 persons.

I was told that the original jjimdak is many times much more spicy than this. “-_-

Don’t let them take away the remaining sauce and add the next dish!

Gonggibap (Stone rice) (KRW1,000)
It’s just a normal crispy rice but it’s superb when it’s added on to the remaining sauce.

After all the spiciness, you can cool it with a bowl of cold kimchi (non-spicy).
