Over the weekend, I visited Busan to hangout with Katie’s family. We ended up at Songjeong beach to go surfing. Afterwards, we went to eat at a local K-BBQ matjib.
The matjib was called Gudeokpo Kkeutjip, which translates to “last house in Gudeok-po”. It is the very last restaurant on the south shoreline of Songjeong Beach. To the left is nothing but rocks and ocean. And in front is an amazing view of open ocean. As the Korean BBQ sizzles in front of you, you can look out the big-glass windows and see the ocean waves crashing out in front. With an ambiance like that, the food of course, tastes amazing.
Their speciality was samgyeopsal (pork belly) and mok-sal (pork neck). Here, they do all of the cooking for you. So we kicked back as the server grilled this juicy pork to perfection. He cut it a littler thicker than I like, so I asked him to cut it thinner. But he pushed back, saying you have to cut this thick to hold in alot of the juices. Smart guy And as advertised, the pork pieces were heavenly. So much juice bursted out of each piece as you bit into it.
As good as the pork was, we were also raving about how good the gosari was (fernbrake). Normally, you don’t see gosari being served at Korean BBQ restaurants. It’s expensive and time-consuming to prepare. But here, they obviously knew what they were doing. The gosari was tender and slightly seasoned with sesame oil and salt(?). They grilled some of it next to the BBQ as well.
Finally, we finished off with a Seafood Ramen. It included a whole mini octopus, flower crab and Korean rice cakes. Beautiful ending to a beautiful meal. Here are some photos ya’ll.
