Kimchi Jjigae

Seoul, January 2011 in Vienna, Austria

Imaging a cold winter night, it’s windy and raining outside or snowing or sometimes both. You went into this very crowded small restaurant, and as soon as you opened the door, the warm steamy air along with the smell of mouth-watering food came into your face. The hot Kinchi Jjigae (Korean stew-like hot pot) was still boiling when served. The tofu and the thinly-sliced pork belly meat soaked up the rich flavor of the kimchi soup….

This is why I always go back to this small place again and again, when the service is even not very friendly!

  2. That’s a shame that the service is unfriendly. Do you have any personal stories about why it’s bad?

    But yeah, that hot pot looks absolutely delicious I must admit. I’m getting very hungry just looking at that photo!

    Sorry if it’s obvious, but what is the name of this place? I’d like to visit it later this year when we go to Vienna for Christmas. It looks like it might be worth trying out if we can find a free evening. We’re going to the Vienna Christmas markets so there will definitely be loads of food there already, but it’s good to have a backup in case we can only manage to eat so much Wiener Schnitzel and Sachertorte.
