Just as makeup and fashion are trending, so
are food trends. The thick Jeju-gongguk-style meat
was popular for its juiciness that popped every time it was chewed. The trend of frozen pork belly, which has a different appeal from root meat, is blowing these days. The thin frozen pork belly cooks quickly and goes well with other side dishes, making it a great side dish for rice.
There is a misconception that frozen pork belly causes tough meat. However, after aging the raw meat, the freezing process was repeated to add chewiness and softness, so there's no need to worry. Frozen pork belly is delicious whether you eat it wrapped,
dipped in sauce, or eaten with green onion sauce! Here are 5 of the best frozen samgyeopsal restaurants you can enjoy in Seoul.
1. 'Daesam Restaurant' in Nonhyeon-dong, where you can find good quality handon
âDaesam Restaurantâ is a place where
you can enjoy fresh meat by receiving money from parents who run a yakiniku restaurant in Majang-dong. Among frozen pork ribs, âsamgyeopsal,â which has a
thick thickness, is the signature menu. After sizzling on a grill, dip it in a pan of oil and eat it. âMixed stewâ has a cool flavor about halfway between kimchi stew and budae jjigae, and contains plenty of meat , kimchi, and mushrooms.
If you add cheese, you can enjoy it more savory and thick. Fried rice is characterized by
wrapping it in tin foil for a while after cooking to make the most of its moisture and flavor. When frying fried rice, you can
enjoy the savory flavor using pork belly lard.

â² Review (Shikigami Eunvely:3): It is located in the back alley on the side of the
Seoul Customs Intersection.
I recommend the restaurant in Nonhyeon-dong, which has a crackling atmosphere, and whose brick and antique vibe are popular.
2. Itaewon's 'Nari's House', famous as a celebrity house
âNari's Houseâ exudes the atmosphere of a long-established store in Itaewon's Hannam-dong Alley. The red bathroom tile interior enhances the fun atmosphere. The âsamgyeopsalâ here is thinner
than other places. The spicy, sweet, and spicy green onion sauce, which is seasoned immediately after ordering, captures the texture of the meat and cleans up the
aftertaste. âCheonggukjang White Riceâ is a popular dish because it has a savory, rich, and
unique flavor that makes you feel like eating at home. It doesn't have the bitter flavor unique to cheonggukjang, making it a
favorite for men and women of all ages. After ordering rice, you can enjoy it as fried
rice by stir-frying it with meat and shrimps.

Haeundaedong): Daepae is a flavor I've always eaten.. Surprisingly, they say they'll eat a lot… Kimchi grilled in oil goes well with it.. Spicy, sour, and sweet flakes cut with a knife instead of a machine are a big hit.. The stew is also
delicious.. Peak hours should be avoided..
3. 'Diving Bridge' in Bogwang-dong, where you can feel the 8090 sensibility
âDiving Schoolâ is a second
yakiniku restaurant opened in Bogwang-dong by the owner of Haebangchon Camping Company. Nostalgic items such as obong trays , tablecloths, Delmont water bottles, and old watches evoke memories of the past. The signature menu is âSamgyeopsal,â which uses only Jeju sows that have been rapidly cooled after slaughter on the same day. If you sprinkle
the pepper provided on the table and eat it, the dirt will be removed and the umami will come back to life. Fried rice, which is stir-fried with a spicy sauce, is a great place to eat at the end of a
meal. A tip for making fried rice more delicious is to wrap it in savory grilled seaweed.

And fried rice!!! A must-eat course that really must be eaten, if you stir the egg yolk and
eat it, it will taste like real honey!
4. Euljiro âJeonju Restaurantâ, a restaurant hidden deep in an alley
located at the first corner of Euljiro 3-ga Alley, is a place boasting a tradition of about 30 years in the alley. âFrozen pork bellyâ is larger than pork belly and has less fat, and is characterized by its light flavor. The green onion
sauce topped with egg yolk added a savory flavor unique to the sweet and sour yolk. âBudae Jjigaeâ is a popular dish loved by lovers for its generously filled sausage and cool soup. If you grill the chives and bean sprouts
that come as side dishes with meat and wrap them in a wrap, you can enjoy the crunchy texture and
