Where to get Gamjatang

I would recommend this soup to anyone who likes spicy pork soup. No noodles, just pork spine, wild sesame, cabbage and potato. I love sucking the meat off the vertebra! Here (Koreana) they use fresh cabbage in stead of the more traditional dried cabbage, but it is still very good for $8.95!

Gamgatang with potatoes - nice amount of spiciness. Lots of meat on the bones. This was at the Merivale location which was bright and nicely decorated.

Loads of succulent, fall-off-the-bone stewed pork in a delectable spicy-rich broth! I opted for the rice cakes as I'd never tried them before. I can imagine these soft and gummy ear-plug-like cylinders would be a nostalgic pleasure for some, but I think the potato option would be more to my taste.
Top marks for flavour and meat content!

This is a satisfying bowl of meaty pork bones and potato chunks, simmered in a deeply flavoured and hearty broth. Excellent value for under $10!

So thrilled to have good Korean food near where I work!! The
(pork bone soup) for $9.95 was flavourful and chock full of tender neck meat on the bone. The broth was a little less spicy than I've had elsewhere, but that's probably to be expected in a suburban strip mall.
The lady who served me was very nice and gave me a complimentary sampler plate of assorted maki and gimbap. All very fresh and tasty.
This is primarily set up as a takeout place, but there are a few small bar-like tables for those who prefer to eat in. I went at 11:30 on a Monday and had the place pretty much to myself.
Excited to try more dishes here!
