So, it seemed like I didn't do anything but eat last weekend. On Saturday, we treated my niece and nephew for dinner with Naeng-myun (cold noodles), which Koreans like to eat in the midst of the summer heat. And on Sunday, Asul and I had a lunch date in Heuk-don-ka (흑돈가), a newly opened restaurant near our apartment.
The restaurant's specialty is heuk-doeji gogi or Jeju black-pig pork which is a famous dish in Jeju Island.
Trivia: Heuk-doeji was also called "ddong doeji" or "dung pig" cos long time ago, people in the island used to raise pigs in a pigpen near their toilet! (now, you've probably lost your appetite,lol erase.. erase.. erase:)
Anyway! So here's a picture taken as we were walking to the restaurant.. I so love our neighborhood! There are lots of places to dine in and it's very convenient. I'm afraid we'd be leaving this place in a few months though... but that's another story :)
And here's Heuk-don-ka! Two floors are for dining in. Pretty big,huh?! A restaurant called Ocean Star used to occupy this place and we had never tried it... even once. I just used to stare at it longingly whenever I passed by.lol
It was around 2pm when we got in and there were just a few customers. The place was surprisingly jam packed though when we left (i didn't even notice people were coming in... i was so engrossed with eating.. lol
We were on table 2! Big restaurants usually have this buzzer, bell, whatever, for when the customers need anything *easy peasy* :)
Love this "mul kimchi" or water kimchi! And they especially added ice since it was so hot outside.
and this is heuk-doeji gogi! Now, THIS. Was. Yummy! I've had this when we were in Jeju Island but it was still like the first time for me. A chunk which was a bit longer than the one you can see on the left costs 14,000KRW. It was juicy and tasty. So glad I don't have hypertension or something (yet!) Gosh, I love being young. :) haha I probably ate more than Asul did.
