soh-gong-dong ddook-bae-gi jip (소공동 뚝배기집)

soh-gong-dong ddook-bae-gi jip (소공동 뚝배기집)
서울특별시 종로구 새문안로3길 30 대우빌딩; also at 서울특별시 종로구 내수동 167

what was consumed: spicy pork bbq! served with a slew of side dishes and to be eaten with rice, steamed soy bean sprouts, and a ladle filled with spicy tofu soup.

just a short walk away from the office is 소공동 뚝배기집. they serve spicy pork bbq, family style, along with a slew of side dishes. after you've eaten a round (or two) of side dishes (or maybe that's just me), and when the spicy pork comes out, you put a spoonful of it into your bowl that contains steamed soy bean sprouts and maybe a bit of lettuce. add the rice (i usually add only half) and top it off with a ladle filled with spicy tofu soup (note: this spicy tofu soup should also be enjoyed separately. hahaha). mix it up and devour.

funny, this is also where bjl went to lunch (with mjk, of course) after getting paper-married at jongno ward office. hahaha ...

if 소공동 뚝배기집 is your lunchtime destination, be sure to make a quick beeline out the door because, much like other delicious places around the office, the restaurant fills up quickly. the turnover is pretty fast, but when you're hungry, you're hungry (or if you're me, some major hangry-ness can take over).

and for those of you who are looking for non-spicy options, not to worry! 소공동 뚝배기집 also has bulgogi (a favorite especially for those who are new to korean food) that is also delish.
