Cindy and I went to MukEunJi which is a Korean restaurant on Broad Avenue at Palisades Park, NJ. I have eaten there before with my parents and thought it was one of the better Korean food places among the multitudes of other Korean restaurants. We ordered the Dakdoritang which is a spicy chicken soup with potatoes, kimchi, and other various vegetables. The broth was very thick and was very enriching and fulfilling. The chicken was also cooked to perfection.

As complimentary side dishes my favorite was the mussels in broth and the ddukboki. Ddukboki is a spicy rice cake dish with fish cake cooked in a pepper paste sauce. The prices were good and so was the food.

My mom and I ate at a very rustic styled Korean restaurant in Palisades Park, NJ. I ordered the Fish Egg & Kimchi bimbimbop which came in a sizzling stone pot. It was very delicious and the stone pot cooked the fish eggs almost immediately upon contact. The kimchi was a huge highlight of the dish which was fermented perfectly.

Kimchi jjigae, literally translated into kimchi stew, is a traditional Korean dish. My mom made this with the obligatory kimchi of course, and also threw in some pork chunks, which taste amazing if stewed in the broth long enough.  I personally do not know how to make this how my mom makes it, but I would love to know how.

Here is a wikipedia article on kimchi jjigae. Enjoy reading and to those of you that have never ate this dish, i encourage you to try it.

Warning: For those of you that don’t like spicy foods.

After drinking with some friends, we were craving for some Korean food, so we decided to go to Woochon Restaurant.  Overpriced because of the location (Manhattan) but they served up some good food.  We ordered the Kimchi Pajun (which is basically kimchi pancakes) and for the entree, we ate jaeyook bokkum, which is basically sitr fried spicy pork with onions and peppers. Of course with when you order Korean food it comes with various side dishes that you could pick at while you are eating your main dishes.
