Or is it Jung?
A coworker and I went for lunch, and I ordered the Yook Gae Jang -- a dish of shredded beef, scallions and mushrooms in a spicy broth and served with rice. It was tasty, but I just couldn't figure out the best way to eat it. The beef and scallions were in such long pieces that it was hard to handle.
At first, I put pieces of the beef and scallions on top of some rice on my plate and tried to eat with chopsticks. Then -- at the suggestion of my coworker (who is a regular at this Korean restaurant) -- I added rice to the bowl of Yook Gae Jang and tried to eat it with a spoon. Both ways I had trouble trying to untangle the beef and scallions into managable pieces. It was messy, and I felt very self-conscious.
Any Korean cuisine experts have suggestions on how to do better next time? (I'd liked the dish and want to order it again.)
