    I’ve heard about this before as well, but I haven’t heard what makes this special and differentiates this from, say, Yu Ga Nae Dak Galbi, which I’m really fond of.

      Yeah. Honestly, me neither. I don’t always get the ‘famous’ food culture here. But it was good!

    How do you like the “Chuncheon Dak Galbi” restaurant in our neighborhood? I guess it’d be pretty close to your apartment. I love the place, and the owners seem to love Victoria and me — they give us drinks as “service” and a free bag of candy almost every time we eat there! (Yes, not a piece of candy, a BAG of candy!)

      I was only there once. It was okay, but I was a little turned off by the ‘Look, foreigners! Obviously they can’t eat spicy food, so let’s make this mild without asking them if it’s okay’ attitude. To be fair, I should go back.
