Jin Joo Korean Grill came out with a blast making headlines with it’s Cheese Dung Galbi. Being a cheese lover and a recent convert to Team Samgyeopsal as opposed to Team Sashimi, I was determined to try this dish.
My friends and I had lunch during a Saturday afternoon. They don’t take reservations so we had to line up for a table.
We were given a banchan with 6 varied side dishes. The container is quite small although you do get unlimited refills.
The Cheese Dung Galbi we ordered takes around 20 – 30 minutes to be served. After preparation, they melt the cheese and cover the meat in it on your table. The mix the leftover cheese with the rice, kimchi, steamed egg, and corn making a kimchi cheese rice. 🙂
We got 5 pieces of the ribs. The cheese cools down easily so it’s best to eat it right away. I was a bit disappointed with the meat since the inner meat was a bit cool biting in to it. Also it was a bit dry and missing the BBQ flavor. We did enjoy the preparation and the cheese.
We also ordered the Dwaeji Galbi which is your usual galbisal. 🙂
Overall the Cheese Dung Galbi was something to try but I wish it had a better flavor and cook of the meat since it’s quite pricey. We also wanted to order the Curry Samgyeopsal unfortunately it’s only being served as a set so we wished that was available for a single order.
