Ultimate Korean Comfort food…Kal Guk Soo in KOREA

DSC03596

I WAS SO LUCK Y TO ENJOY THIS GIANT POT OF KAL GUK SOO, a Korean dish consisting of handmade, knife-cut wheat flour  noodles served in a large bowl with broth and other ingredients. It is traditionally considered a seasonal food, consumed most often in summer. Its name comes from the fact that the noodles are CUT!  This one I tried was a steaming pot of Clam broth, with Cut Noodles,  Potatoes, Green Onion, Juicy Clams and Green Onion. MMMmmmmmmm GOODnessss!

The restaurant was really busy even after the lunch hour and we had to wait for awhile to get a table. This was a good sign and I knew it was going to be worth the long wait.

We got sat at a table where we had to sit on the floor and had big bowls of kimchee we could serve ourselves.

Again, they had the boiling pot of goodness at our table as I nibble on the kimchee anxiously waiting my first bite of these delicious noodles.

As you can see we were really enjoying what seemed like a hundred clams in the steamy broth.

We had 2 large pots among just 5 of us and we couldn’t finish everything. Ahhhhhh… I really wish I could have this amazing Kal Guk Soo again…I’m so grateful for yet, another amazing and comforting meal…
