Michelin Bib Gourmand restaurant <Ggupdang Seongsu>
Ggupdang is well-known in Seongsu-dong for its charcoal-grilled pork. My sister and her husband took me out to dinner at their favorite restaurant.
There are numerous charcoal-grilled restaurants around, however, waiting is required here. Many of the restaurants in Seongsu-dong have waiting lists because of their high demand.
After putting my name on the list, I had an hour to discover the Seongsu area.
Famous for its Kokumi moksal and unique side menus.
Basic side dish (free)
Radish and perilla leaves were simply too sweet for me, to be honest.
Salt and Wasabi
Kokumi rice 3,000 won
The quality of the rice is superb. Kokumi is the name of it and it cost 3,000 won. Whether or not the katsuobushi soup was used to cook the rice, it has a lot of flavor. Kokumi means "deep and rich flavor" in Japanese.
Kokumi moksal (left) 17,000 won / Samgyupsal (right) 17,000 won
The staff cooks everything for us at the table.
In addition, there is no corkage charge at Ggupdang. Each of us brought a bottle of wine, and we shared it.
Gochujang Pasta 9,000 won
It was delicious, juicy, and seasoned with authentic red pepper paste. The Samgyupsal went great with the Gochujang pasta.
Doenjang-jjigae (miso paste stew) 8,000 won
In comparison to Moksal, I preferred Samgyupsal.
Barbecue lovers, you must try Ggupdang in Seongsu-dong. Kokumi rice goes exceptionally well with meat, so make sure to request it alongside your meat order.
