So Gong Dong Tofu & BBQ in Quincy, MA

This new spot is a great addition to the Kam Man plaza. The Mister and I were originally going to Falafel King but then we found out that they’re closed on the weekends now! What? When did this happen?

So, while I’m on my low carb diet, we were trying to figure out what would work and So Gong Dong Tofu & BBQ popped up on a quick Yelp search. So, Korean soup it is!

the tasty side dishes. I wish there had been more.

The Mister and I ordered a kimchi jigae paired with rice in a stone pot. Other pairing options include ramen or a Korean noodle, but I didn’t want to have any carbs in the soup. This way, I knew it’d be on the side. There are also other jigae/soup choices (seafood, pork, vegetable and more) with your spiciness level preference – I wish I’d chosen very spicy instead of just spicy.

the bubbling cauldron of kimchi jigae.

The Mister ordered kalbi and they were pretty generous with the amount of meat piled on the plate. It was pretty dang delicious.

a beautiful trough of kalbi.

We’ll definitely be returning because for one it’s pretty good and for another it beats going out to Allston for Korean soup and trying to find parking there.

Korean BBQ and fried chicken goodness in Texas

Gang Jung Chicken in Dallas, Texas | by Lillian Lee

When we got to Texas, we had no idea there was such a large Korean population there. It was a dream come true. Korean BBQ and  fried chicken readily available! Look, it’s slim pickings in Boston.

Gen Korean BBQ

This is the new Dallas location for this California-based Korean BBQ restaurant. It was simply amazing and all-you-can-eat. The meats kept coming to the point where we had to say no more, no more.

We were giddy with excitement to see the small side dishes come out…AND they had salad too!

SO much variety of meats available – bulgogi, steak, pork belly and more. We were like kids in a candy store.

The interior definitely felt like a club.

Loved this restaurant. It felt some home-y inside…and they offered draught beer in frosted mugs! Hello.

I’ve never had Korean fried chicken topped with the rice cakes. I loved that added touch. This thing was so saucy and so spicy. Yum!

Rice Chicken

We had just finished catching a Bare Naked Ladies concert (which was spectacular by the way) and needed some food, but it was late. We found Rice Chicken and ordered some for take-out to eat in our hotel room.

The rice flour helped to make this chicken so much more crispier.
