korean food / seoul / A delicious eel restaurant that is chewy, savory, and happy to the tip of your tongue – 1418

The name “hagfish” comes from the degeneration of snow due to life under the sea. It is a favorite food in Gyeongsang-do and is more widely known for its gongsang-do dialect. Being particularly rich in protein, fat, and vitamin A, hagfish, which is highly nutritious, tastes good even if you just grill it with or without seasoning. Here are 5 places where you can enjoy eel even more deliciously, which has a chewy and chewy texture when you put it in your mouth.

1. A plump eel, Nonhyeon-dong's 'Chang Ine Mountain Eel'

Go to store information ▶

An indoor food stall located in Nonhyeon. The secret to its popularity is that you can enjoy the natural flavor of hagfish, thanks to fresh hagfish sent directly from production areas to be prepared and grilled from time to time. “Mountain eel,” which is primed on charcoal to add its flavor and aroma, has an excellent chewy and plump texture. Savory hagfish can be enjoyed even more deliciously by wrapping it in sour green onion kimchi. “Liver,” which has a chewy appeal that is different from lean meat, is also a delicacy. Another popular menu item, “Kimchi Jjigae,” is made by slowly simmering a bowl of kimchi every day, adding saury and kimchi broth to the mushy kimchi broth, and the harmony between the sour flavor and the savory flavor of the eel is excellent.

2. Straw grilled eel, Busan Gijang 'Gijang eel'

Go to store information ▶

It's a place where you can always enjoy fresh eel, and its signature menu, “Straw Broiled Eel”, is famous. You can enjoy the unique flavor of grilled eel infused with straw using the traditional method that has been passed down for three generations. When you peel off the burnt part of eel grilled on a straw fire, the white inner skin appears, and the characteristic is that it preserves the natural flavor of the ingredients because it is cooked with the high heat of the straw fire. The savory yet chewy texture is excellent. It is recommended to eat straw bulgur without any seasoning, and marinated grilled eels, which are caught fresh eels and stir-fried right away with spicy sauce, is also a delicacy.

Those who don't like spicy food can neutralize the spiciness by wrapping pickled radish in the sesame leaves that are served as a base, or eating it with soft steamed egg custard. The chewy, chewy zukkumi is also one of the popular dishes, and is grilled over charcoal and has a rich charcoal flavor.

4. 'Kachine Restaurant' in Sinnonhyeon, a restaurant with grilled eel

Go to store information ▶

A hidden restaurant that specializes in grilled mountain eel. Typical dishes include grilled eel with salt and condiments. When an order is placed, the charcoal is raised, and the wriggling eel is brought directly to the iron plate, but you have to press it with a grill until it stops moving. When the eel that has been peeled off is ripe, the boss cuts it into bite-size pieces. When grilled with salt without any seasoning, you can enjoy the natural flavor of fresh wild eel. To grill the sauce, first fry it on a grill like salt-grilled food, then put it in a sauce container and mix the seasoning on the spot. If you bake it again, the spicy sauce grill is ready, and the texture that sticks in your mouth and the savory flavor are excellent.
