This is a revisit of Jong Ga Korean restaurant. If you would like to see my initial impression, click here. I have probably been to Jong Ga a gazillion times, I’m on and off the mayor on Foursquare. This would probably tell you how often I come.
The banchan (complimentary appies) here is pretty consistent. Their potato could be cooked a bit more, it was crunchy the last few times I was here.
My girlfriend almost gets this dish every time we come here. She knows it well enough to tell that this last time they had started using a different type of Tofu that is not as soft as before, which is ashamed because she likes it here. You are able to adjust the level of spiciness based on your intake of spice. This particular one is non-spicy. Also, you may choose the kind of meat to accompany the hot pot. Either beef, pork, oyster or assorted. Beef is the best. The hot pot came with a bowl of rice served in a stone pot. (We noticed the servings for rice has also gone down, they probably realized it was too much rice from before.)
The cold Buckwheat noodle took a little longer to come than anything else, but it was good. The noodles were chewy but not too chewy. It’s perfect for a hot summer day. I’m not sure if I like the chilled broth though, even though it tastes alright. It just felt weird drinking cold soup.
The grilled minced rib came with the Buckwheat noodle for $12.99, a pretty good combo. It came with 2 grilled patties seasoned with sesame seed and Korean style BBQ sauce. It was juicy and sweet. But I’m not sure how that compliments the cold noodles. It tastes great by itself though. A bowl of rice would have been nice.
