Embarked on a pork belly omakase journey and let me tell you, it’s all in the details. This spot doesn’t mess around—from their meticulously crafted sauces to their vibrant array of veggies, they take pride in every aspect, right down to their explanations. And let me tell you, they’re dead serious about those explanations. It’s almost like stepping into a secret culinary society, where the jargon is next-level pro. But hey, don’t let that intimidate you—this place is a must-visit if you find yourself in Bangi-dong. Bonus: They’ve got a parking lot in the back that can fit about 5-6 cars.

Now, let’s talk sauces—they’ve got a whole lineup to tantalize your taste buds. And those assorted veggies? They change up depending on the season, but one thing’s for sure—they’re always bursting with color. Plus, don’t sleep on the assorted salted seafood or the gewoojjut (salted abalone guts)—trust me, they’re game-changers. And let’s not forget about the cilantro and agastache pickles—talk about a flavor explosion. With so many side dishes to choose from, it’s like a party in your mouth. Pro tip: Definitely spring for the assorted veggies—they’re worth it.

Now onto the main event—the pork belly and pork shoulder. If it’s your first rodeo, go for the Songdon platter based on your group size. The meat? Grilled to absolute perfection from start to finish. And get this—the charcoal they use is top-tier, the crème de la crème of Korea. When it comes to the pork belly, they don’t mess around—using only the finest 1+ sows. One bite and you’ll be in juicy meat heaven. And here’s a little trick—pop a chili pepper in your mouth to cleanse your palate and amp up the flavor. Trust me, it’s next-level fire.

Now, onto the pork neck—prepare for a melt-in-your-mouth experience. Surprisingly tender and oh-so-juicy, it’s like a party in your mouth. The texture? Think steamed egg meets pork—utterly divine. And did I mention? They’re corkage-free, so you can sip and savor to your heart’s content. Trust me, this place is worth every single minute of your time.
