Shinmapo Korean BBQ, The Gardens >> Korean lunch with Miss Klein & Mel Jag. Unfortunately Torres is unable to join us yesterday because Torres is currently nursing his broken fingers. Torres injured himself while doing some dumbbell exercise.
Well, I still prefer the Korean restaurant that Miss Klein brought us in Sri Hartamas. This one…the pork is marinated but I felt that it is not robust enough to bring out the taste. The texture is also a bit rough. Not fine enough. Apparently, what makes Shinmapo stand out from the existing Korean BBQ joints in town is that they serve Galmaegisal. Galmaegisal, also known as pork skirt meat is a premium cut that’s only found between the ribs and the belly of the pig. Due to its small yield (200 - 250 gm per pig), it’s rare and highly prized as well. Taste and texture wise, it’s similar to Korean beef which also contribute to the popularity. Hmm…I cannot tell the difference…hahaha…but I like their novelty of the Kimchi egg crust and the cheesy dip.
It was a good lunch…here is to reunions, togetherness, friendship and love!
