Goat spotting in K-town

squid-kun | Mar 2, 2006 09:09 AM

Some hounds have been in the hunt recently for Korean goat soups and stews, mostly on the Outer Boroughs board.

My wife and I had a decent goat jungol last night at Yangpyung Seoul in Koreatown. Tons of tender meat and a mess of greens in rich, spicy, deep red broth, served in a stone pot over a gas grill.

Condiments came on the side for dipping: chile paste, shiso seeds, minced garlic. Our server even showed us how to use them, ladling a bit of broth into the condiment dish and mixing it up.

It's $30 for a generous potful that'll feed two, maybe three.

I don't know if they would've brought noodles to cook in the broth at the end, as is the custom. This place specializes in noodles and soups, so I wouldn't be surprised. We didn't ask, though, because we were full. We took the leftovers and will try that at home.

Yangpyung Seoul Haejangguk
43 W. 33rd St. (between 5th and 6th Aves.)
