Doyajib is a Korean barbecue restaurant in the Yongsan District that I'd like to introduce today.
I frequently visit this neighborhood because I live close to Yongsan, yet every time I've passed this restaurant there's always been a line. I had been holding off visiting due to the wait, but it turned out that reservations were available to anyone who wanted to visit.
The inside isn't very spacious.
We ordered the set for 2-3 people (55,000 won). Including 1 Moksal (pork neck) + 2 Samgyupsal (pork belly) + Walnut-stuffed Ssamjang with herring roe.
Once you've placed your order, they will serve side dishes.
As soon as the side dishes arrived, I realized I was at a high-quality eatery. Take a look at that, everyone. In particular, those mushrooms in the center were amazing.
Walnut-stuffed Ssamjang (seasoning) with herring roe and Rice
Walnut Ssamjang was combined with herring roe. I just tried it for the first time and I absolutely loved it.
Although it was Ssamjang (seasoning), it was not at all salty because of the abundance of nuts inside, and the herring roe on top doubled the flavor.
This is how you should eat it. Simply add the Herring roe and Ssamjang over the rice and mix them like bibimbap. Although the seasoning had a salty appearance, it was pretty mild. I'm hungry once more.
The combination of salty, savory, and spicy flavors was irresistible.
Moksal (1 serving) + Samgyupsal (2 servings)
Thick cuts were always my favorite, and now that most barbecue restaurants provide thick cuts. The meat appeared to be in excellent condition.
In addition, the staff grilled all of the meat to perfection for us, which was one of the nicest parts of this restaurant. For tonight's dinner, you should have a BBQ. Everything about the grilling was excellent.
The first thing I ate was the Moksal (pork neck).
I prefer my BBQ with a sprinkle of salt or some wasabi.
They served some special salts made from ground-up pollack. Dried Pollack's savory flavor went wonderfully with the salty flavor.
Samgyupsal (pork belly) is my preferred cut above moksal (pork neck) by the way.
The tasty barbecue was enjoyable in many ways. It's not often that I find every single side dish to be great, but here it was all tasty.
The delicious Doyajib barbecue is still on my mind.
This is a specific variety of mushrooms and tastes like pickled onions. Why does it taste so good?
I don't know why, but it makes me feel happy and wealthy to see all that meat stacked up like that
Mul naengmyeon (cold noodles)
To be honest, Bibim Naengmyeon is my favorite. However, I was craving Mul naengmyeon on that day. The mul naengmyeon is highly recommended, which has a lot of sesame oil flavor. Since I enjoy sesame oil, I found it to be quite tasty.
It's true, I ate a lot. As you can see, I finished every single side dish.
Perfect springtime weather, with a daytime temperature of roughly 21 degrees Celsius on this day. Therefore, we dressed for spring, ate well, and took numerous photographs. It was such a wonderful day.
Everyone should try Korean barbecue here.
