Best Korean pork bone soup (gamjatang) in GVR??

teal28 | Jan 5, 2011 10:59 AM

Does anybody have any recommendations for best / good Korean pork bone soup (gamjatang) in the GVR?

The pork has to be so tender it falls off the bone, the soup has to be spicy enough to make me sweat and the potatoes have to be fork tender. Service doesn't have to be great, or even good, but decent enough to make the trip.

I've had gamjatang at Han Woo Ri in Burnaby - not great, their BBQ is best, and Jang Mo Jib on Robson - good, but service is atrocious.

Has anybody sampled the soup at other popular K-restaurants, like:

- Ap Gu Jung
- In Sa Dong
- Nor Boo

Any others? I would appreciate any comments or recommendations as I am taking my Torontonian boyfriend out for K-food tonight and apparently they have excellent gajatang out east and I cannot let Vancouver lose face...
