Jang Su Jang

April 30, 2011

I think I’ve found a favorite Korean restaurant in my area!  I haven’t tried the BBQ at Jang Su Jang yet but everything else we’ve tried is great.

Love the banchan.  The jap chae is always one of my faves.

Based on Yelp reviews, we ordered the seafood pancake.  It had tons of seafood mixed in and tasted great.  It tasted the best when it was still sizzling after it was brought to our table.

My parents and I all ordered the dolsot bibimbap.  My Dad loves when the rice burns on the sides of the bowl and get crunchy.

TM went with a spicy beef noodle soup.  If you can’t tell by the picture, the soup was pretty spicy.  It was temperature hot AND spicy hot!  Just how TM likes his food.

At the end of your meal, everyone gets a little yakult like drink.  These little yogurt drinks are great to cut the heat of the food.  We’ve gone to Jang Su Jang a couple times now and it’s always been packed.  I know this place is good because most of the patrons are Korean.  It’d be wise to make reservations before you go.

돌솥 비빔밥 (Dolsot Bibimbap!)

March 18, 2008

One of my absolute favorite Korean dishes is dolsot bibimbap!  Dolsot means “stone pot” in Korean and this rice dish is served in a HOT stone pot and the food is mixed right before consumption.  There is usually a raw egg as a part of this dish that is cooked against the sides of the bowl when mixed.  I love this dish because there is a wide variety of mixed veggies as well as some meat.  It’s very filling and I love the red sauce you put on it.  (no idea what the sauce is called)

Of course we started out with panchan… no kongnamul (bean sprouts) here.  Sadness.

At least I got bean sprouts in the bibimbap, YAY!

My parents love dolsot bibimbap too… my Dad tried seafood dolsot bibimbap for the first time.  It was incredibly spicy… exactly how Korean food is supposed to be!

I have no idea what this restaurant is called since the sign is in Korean but it’s in Seoul Garden Plaza off of Western just north of Marine Ave. in Gardena.  I’ve been to a few of the restaurants in this plaza and they were all pretty good when you don’t want to make the drive to K-town.
