Cuisine: Korean Army Stew
Rating: Hearty spicy goodness!
After a great Brunello dinner downtown, Liz, Erick and I felt the need for some K-Town Second Dinner fun. So off to:
Chanju Han Il Kwan, a Korean Army Stew place. Notice that it’s right next to Seaweed, the Armo Sushi place I went a week or so before.
The interior is drop ceiling meets Korean classic. I like the wood panels.
Banchan! Tofu and veggies.
My favorite here is the chewy spicy fish cake (the orange thing in the center).
The crunchy pickle kimchee (lower left) was great too.
Spicy kimchee pancake. Good stuff late at night.
The main event: Korean army stew. It’s basically chili-garlic paste with the kitchen sink dumped in, including ramen and spam and rice cakes!
A close up. Hearty and delicious.
Red bean (purple) rice.
This was simple, cheap, and tasty. Definately hearty too. I was so stuffed after (it was, after all, second dinner!).
