I know kimchi jiggae is something that's easily made at home, but when you live in Korea, why not try the different kinds of kimchi jiggae available! Especially if I'm tired, I crave for something spicy to hit the spot. I usually go to 새마을식당 (SehMaelShikDang) for their "7-minute" kimchi jiggae, but I felt like trying something different...so I searched in Naver, filtered through some of the Korean blogs, and came across this new find for me!
What? Savoury kimchi jiggae at lunch, samgyupsal bbq and kimchi jiggae at dinner. (No options. You don't even have to order, they will just bring it to you).
Who? Anyone who likes kimchi jiggae, especially with pork belly. Not suitable for young young kids as the grill can splatter and everything is cooked at the table. No other menu options either.
When? For lunch, 11:30am-4pm - only kimchi jiggae. For dinner, 6pm-10pm - only samgyupsal and kimchi jiggae.
Reservations? Depends. You have to call to check and ask to see if they can or not that day.
Parking? Yes and no. If you find a spot anywhere in the alley way, you can just park there. On a Sunday, almost all of the shops were closed in the evening so there were parking spots everywhere. I can see how on a weekday or during the day on a weekend may be more tricky.
Cards Accepted? Yes.
Where? 서울시 중구 주교동 148-2. 148-1 Jugyo-dong 172-1 Cheonggyecheon-ro
Directions: 을지로입구 4번출구 (Eul-jiro Ipgu, exit #4). Walk straight until you reach the chungaechun river and then turn right at that main street. Keep going straight for 2 blocks, then turn right into an alleyway. Turn right again at the first right. It can be hard to find but once you know where it is, it's really simple. I would put the address into google or daum maps and follow along!
