Seattle Weekly's Description

Tiny, bare-bones Chang Ahn Jung's reputation has barely spread beyond Korean foodies, but its food is good enough to warrant a peak-oil trek to Federal Way and back. (One critical warning: The restaurant's sign is mistransliterated "Jang An.") What makes this place so much better than Korean restaurants in Seattle? For one, the creative spread of banchan (side dishes), which range from cabbage kimchi to hot-dog fritters. Grilled short ribs are succulent, and so is a fried mackerel, which may have you sucking away at its pinbones. The long list of cook-at-the-table junggol (stews) are perfect for wiling away long winter nights, and Chang Ahn Jung's "boiled sablefish" is the worst case of underselling something spectacular since the Vikings named Iceland.

    You go to restaurants to eat food, not the service... Just sayin...

  • Austin Y. on 08/13/12

    Korean restaurants always have terrible service. Get used to it. Lol.

  • Dahae J. on 08/28/11

    DO NOT EAT here. Service is horrible. Servers are rude.

  • Michael P. on 11/15/13

    Great side dishes, wonderful bulgogi beef.

  • Isaac K. on 09/22/13

    Food was okay, service was not. If you can handle the language barrier and don't mind repeating yourself a few times to get what you are trying to order, it's worth the try for authentic Korean food.
