Food: Manjok Ohyang Jokbal

Jokbal is actually pig’s trotter, and the dish we see in Korea is pretty similar to the one we have in Singapore. When someone introduced us to a famous Jokbal restaurant called Manjok Ohyang Jokbal, my friend and I were both excited and yet apprehensive at the same time. Back when we were on exchange, some of us went to Gwangjang Market to try out some korean traditional food. During our trip there, we tried Jokbal and was left very disappointed and refused to go near any Jokbal stores after that. However, we found out that Manjok Ohyang Jokbal is famous so we decided to give it a try!

Directions:

Take to Cityhall Station (Line 1 or 2), and exit through Exit 8. Once you exit, you should see U+Square on your right.OHJB.001Turn to your right and you will see the following building (photo below).OHJB.002Following the arrow, turn to your left, and walk all the way straight.OHJB.003 OHJB.004 OHJB.005Once you reach the Olleh store (photo above), turn left into the alley.OHJB.006Once you turn into the alley, you will see a whole stretch of food restaurants. OHJB.007Manjok Jokbal has a few shops along that street!OHJB.008What we ordered: Jokbal for 2OHJB.009What came with it: Rice cake soup, which had dumplings in it as well.OHJB.010Our meal 🙂

Conclusion: THIS JOKBAL IS DELICIOUS. I swear the meat literally melts in your mouth! When my friend and I put the first piece in our mouths, we were both left speechless, in awe, and just *ohmygooooooddddddness*!!! I’m DEFINITELY going to go back for more!!!

Note: The shop only starts serving Jokbal from 3pm onwards!!! We didn’t know about it and made a 1st trip there during lunchtime at 12nn. However we were told that they only served Jokbal from 3pm onwards (sobs) and so we went at about 4pm during our 2nd trip there. Surprisingly, the restaurant was full-house even at 4pm!!! Evidence of how awesome the dish is 🙂

Love, J ❤
