Myth Jokbal – Miss Pork Knuckle At Hongdae

Myth Jokbal has been on my Seoul-to-eat-list for years. It is a jokbal specialist restaurant that first opened its door since 1987. We come to Hongdae branch expecting a long queue, but surprisingly we instantly have a table for 3 at around 8pm.

They basically serve one thing only, the braised pork knuckles. There are 2 types on the menu, original and another with extra garlic on top.

Believe me, the portion is huge. No word can describe preciously how fatty, juicy, tender it is. I also like the sauces being served along including soy sauce, chili miso paste and a sweet and chili one.

To go with our pork knuckles, we have a Korean rice balls which has been deliberately flavored with sesame oil, seaweed and flying fish roe. There are also salad that comes along, with black olives, almonds and tangy vinaigrette; side dishes, as well as a spicy hotpot for your noodles.

Give Miss Pork Knuckle a try, and you will love it!
