Jueun Gamjatang is a restaurant specializing in Gamjatang (Pork bone stew) located in Samjeon-dong, Songpa-gu. Seong Si-Kyung recently introduced this place on his YouTube channel, and it has already made multiple TV appearances.
It is supposed to be a very famous Gamjatang eatery in Songpa-gu. I visited on a public holiday at 2 p.m. and it was nearly packed.
The decor was typical of a Gamjatang eatery. Because of the differing hours observed on the second floor, a line formed on the first floor when the second floor closed for the day.
Only Gamjatang and Haejang-guk were available. Eateries with this kind of simple menu are what I like. Posters from TV shows are hanging on the wall, and Jueun Gamjatang was also introduced by Seong Si-Kyung on a television program many years ago.
Kimchi, Soy sauce, and a small serving of vegetables are your only options for a side dish. These simple side dishes could indicate that they are very confident in their Gamjatang stew.
As soon as it began to boil, the familiar Gamjatang appeared.
Meat, vegetables, and potatoes make up the dish. We added some extra Sujebi (hand-pulled dough).
Based on Seong Si-kyung's YouTube review, I can see why he thinks the Gamjatang here is ready to eat as soon as it boils. When compared to other gamjatang, this one had a superior broth even when it wasn't boiled down.
The amazing flavor of Gamjatang comes from the combination of good broth and seasoning. This Gamjatang had a clean, pleasant flavor.
The meat of the Gamjatang was exceptionally tender and flavorful. Meat can be enjoyed both on its own and with sauce. If you go to a restaurant that doesn't do Gamjatang well, meat is typically too tough, but not here.
The more the soup simmered, the more it became my favorite type of stew. It got stronger in flavor as it reduced, but it was still a flavor I love. The soup's clean taste endures even after being boiled down and I finally could have some tasty Gamjatang.
The meat was tender and cooked to perfection, making this a fantastic Gamjatang. However, Gamjatang is not a particularly special dish, making it difficult to recommend to out-of-town guests. But if you're in the area of Songpa or Jamsil, stop by for a good Gamjatang.
