My Favorite Korean Dish: Pork Belly

Korean pork belly is delicious at basically any Korean restaurant you go too. Here at Hwangso Gopchang it’s no different. It’s absolutely delicious and worth every last bite. They have big cuts of pork belly for this dish and top it off with some big green onions as well as regular white/yellow onions. This is my favorite thing to order here at this establishment.

This dish was one I ordered due to the picture on the menu. The picture made this look enticing and delicious with its colorfulness and differently shaped sausages. To say the least it was actually pretty good for the most part.

Delicious Side or Appetizer: Kimchi Fried Rice

This was pretty delicious to be completely honest. Its a fried rice made in kimchi flavor served up with some garnishments. Those garnishments are a cheese topping that melts beautifully. It fuses in with the rice creating a delicious melting cheesy and spicy rice. Some chives are laced on the top as well.
