New Korean on Ritchie Highway

Chappie | Nov 6, 2003 08:05 PM

I just discovered a fantastic new Korean restaurant on Ritchie Highway near Glen Burnie -- it doesn't have an English name, but rather a cartoon logo of a wagging duck butt. So I'll call it Duck Butt's.
Duck Butt's is beautiful inside, with an authentic menu that deviates sometimes from the typical Korean dishes found at places like Korea's in Severna Park. With the panchan they brought kimchi, pickled root, potato salad, two sizzling chili pancakes and a mini-cauldron of silken tofu soup that, from its taste, may have had egg mixed in with the tofu... delicious!

I ordered a soup of Korean dumplings and sliced rice cake, which is like a very chewy noodle. The lovely waitress refilled all my panchan when empty and even gave me a container of the root to take home -- even though she said they normally don't sell it. I left (as usual when I feast on Korean) absolutely full with another meal's worth of leftovers. All for $9.

I recommend Duck Butt's highly. It's the best Korean I've had outside of Northern Virginia and the San Francisco area.

P.S. Does anyone know what its Korean name translates to? The business card also lists a Flushing, N.Y. location.
