갈릴리농원

The last stop of our teacher’s trip was to a restaurant that specializes in fresh water eel. You can either cook it yourself or have it already cooked. Since we were a large group we went with the latter. First the banchan was already out since we’d made a reservation. There was a lot of it. Vinegar-y soup, kimchi, spinach, potatoes, and more that we didn’t end up really touching.

Then we were brought pumpkin soup. Not a lot of it but it was nice.

And then too many courses of three different styled eel.

Salt, a lightly spicy red pepper one, and soy sauce. I can’t remember if I have had eel before but it was delicious. I ate a ton of it. One of my coworkers even sent me home with the leftovers which wasn’t as good reheated as having it fresh at the restaurant. I could even eat the “spicy” one which was surprising to me. It came with two dipping sauces, one a soybean paste that’s pretty common at bbq restaurants, and the other was a bit sweeter but none of my coworkers knew what it was. There was also a pallet cleanser of shredded ginger.

The restaurant had an upscale vibe to it. With traditional rooms that you take your shoes off of and step up into that are sectioned off for privacy. (Or to keep the noise down, my group got pretty loud with drinking games) There is also a more western style seating closer to the entrance of the restaurant where you don’t have to take off your shoes.
