goat madness at goat house in ktown

hi folks,

if there are any goat enthusiasts out there i have the place for you.
i forgot my paper take away menu so i dont have the address but the place is called "goat house" on 6th street just east of harvard on the south side next to "oh my daisy" cafe. the korean name is something like "hook yum so jeep" the sign is only in korean but you can see black goats on the wall outside so its pretty obvious. the goat meat is freshly slaughtered and they dont use msg.

we had stewed spicy goat and stewed spicy goat intestines (both of these dishes are stewed with veggies - wild sesame leaves, enoki, and they will fry rice in the end)

we also had goat skin salad which was very good (goat skin is pretty elastic but not rubbery). wild sesame leaves, tossed with sesame oil and chili.

third we had steamed goat ribs which had lots of meat. this was served with boiled chives and green onions. this was my favorite dish. you sprinkle coarse salt over it and perhaps dip in the complex and powerul sauce they have at the table for you. pure essense of goat

they gave us an order of goat foot bones which still had gelatinous-ly reduced tendon clinging tenuously. these bad boys were about 6 inches long and they gave you plastic gloves and the sauce was a sweetened chili sauce with shitake not unlike the flavoring one might associate with dduk poki.
ladies, to avoid embarassment, be mindful of how you eat these bones, especially when you are sucking the last bit of tendon off the ends of these things...

we also got grilled goat liver that was marinated and topped with chopped green onions. most of the regular customers will call or get called when a shipment of fresh goat meat comes in so they can eat raw goat liver.

finally was a sliced boiled goat liver that kind of had that powdery texture that im not too into.

they ended with frying rice with nori and sesame oil for us.

we were all stuffed.

i think if you're a group, they do combos which include drinks (jinro soju or this other alchohol called moon bae sool, which i didnt care for).

dinner was 17 per person but we got some nice "service" free dishes cuz the girl who brought me seemed tight with the owner.

the meat is not gamey at all (i actually like the gamey flavor)
