Description

LA Weekly's Description

Jokbal -- braised pig's foot -- specialists abound in Jangchung-Dong, the district of Seoul that the Koreatown restaurant Jang Choong Dong is named after. But Angelenos unfamiliar with it may be surprised to find that jokbal pieces are surprisingly meaty and substantive, its texture reminiscent of a holiday ham. Naturally, it demands absolute attention. You wrap hunks of leg in romaine lettuce, dab Korean fermented soy paste and apply jalapeƱo and garlic slices that are both raw and slightly thicker than comfortable. No matter how wantonly you assemble and dunk these porcine packages, though, you'll finish your meal with sticky, greasy hands and a plate still piled high in slowly cooked meat. After a Korean auntie double wraps the bulging doggie bag, you realize that here, a pig's foot feast is of the ideal, never-ending variety. This place is a hole-in-the-wall, but the food
is seriously good.
