|28. Dak Gang Jung (Crunchy boneless chicken)||$0.00|
Dakgangjeong is a popular Korean snack that’s crispy, sweet, and spicy all at the same time. The name “Dak” means chicken and “gangjeong” refers to a type of Korean confectionery known for its sticky glaze and deep-fried preparation.
This mouthwatering dish consists of bite-sized pieces of boneless chicken thigh that are coated in a delicious sauce, making it a favorite among foodies and snack enthusiasts. The irresistible combination of sweet, tangy, and crispy flavors make these Korean chicken nuggets a must-try.
The great thing about our recipe is that it maintains the crispiness of the chicken even after it is coated with the delicious sauce. The sauce features gochujang (Korean chili paste), which adds a mild spiciness to the dish without overpowering it.
The crispy Korean street food, Dakgangjeong, involves deep-frying boneless chicken pieces twice to ensure its crispiness. Afterwards, a sticky, sweet, and spicy sauce is glazed onto the chicken.
Korean rice cake and fish cake, served with boiled egg, 2 fried mandoos and mozzarela cheese
Tteokbokki (떡볶이), also known as topokki or ddukbokki, is a well-known Korean dish made with small, cylindrical-shaped rice cakes.
Unlike the name’s literal meaning of rice cake stir-fry, the cooking process involves simmering the white rice cakes in a sweet and spicy gochujang-based sauce. Gochugaru (Korean chili powder) is often added to make it more spicy.
|31B Bul Go Gi||$25.00|
marinaded ribeye, lettuce with ssamjang sauce
Bulgogi (불고기; /bʊlˈɡoʊɡiː/ bool-GOH-gee; from Korean bul-gogi [pul.ɡo.ɡi]), literally "fire meat") is a gui (구이; Korean-style grilled or roasted dish) made of thin, marinated slices of meat, most commonly beef, grilled on a barbecue or on a stove-top griddle. It is also often stir-fried in a pan in home cooking. Sirloin, rib eye or brisket are frequently used cuts of beef for the dish. The dish originated from northern areas of the Korean Peninsula, but is a very popular dish in South Korea, where it can be found anywhere from upscale restaurants to local supermarkets as pan-ready kits.

The Turner’s variation on a New Orleans classic. We top fresh, shucked oysters with sautéed spinach, bacon, Gruyère cheese, shallots and bread crumbs. Delicious. Served on the half shell. We suggest 2-3 per person as an appetizer, or a half dozen as an entrée.
