Gamjatang - Korea's Spicy Pork Stew with Potatoes

When it came to dinner time (this was also our last night in Jeonju), Rachel and her two lady friends, Morgan and Virginia took us to another authentic Korean Restaurant (this was a few minutes away from where our hotel was). Upon entering this small and simple restaurant, my niece and her friends immediately ordered a hearty and spicy meal called Gam-ja-tang.

Gam-ja-tang in Korean stands for Spicy Pork Stew with Potatoes. This was probably my korean version of Sinigang, only that it was a lot spicier and richer in color. It was a soup that had pieces of pork, bean sprouts, chillies, potatoes, Chinese cabbages and more. And much like our moment with the Samgyeopsal, we were also served with these bowls that contained different kinds of Kimchi makes.

The korean dining experience was authentic as it can get since we all sat on the floor, ate with chopsticks, dined in small bowls, and drank cola! 

Thanks to Rachel and her two witty friends, Kuya, Choy, and I enjoyed our dinner very much (two thumbs up)! And with all of our stories combined, the drops of sweat from the spiciness of the Kimchi, we could not have asked for a better last night in Jeonju.
