Gejang (Salted fermented raw crab)

MyeongDong Day Adventure
Dinner was near this station called Samseong Station (almost sounds like Samsung). I don’t know the exact location of this restaurant but the food that was served is considered as traditional Korean food so I am sure you can find similiar food in other parts of Seoul.

Gejang or gejeot is a variety of jeotgal, salted fermented seafood in Korean cuisine, which is made by marinating fresh raw crabs either in ganjang (soy sauce) or in a sauce based on chili pepper powder. The term consists of the two words; ge, meaning “a crab”, and jang which means “condiment” in Korean

Our main dish that night was Gejang, we each have had 3 crabs each. You can just eat it on its own by sucking the marinated raw crab or its roe. Alternatively you can put some of the roe on your rice and salted Korean seaweed and eat it in a mouthful 🙂 Yummy!!! Though, those with weaker stomach for raw mouth might need to make sure you don’t eat too much if you have a sensitive stomach.

Ttukbaegi gyeranjjim (fluffy steamed egg in a hot earth pot) A simple but yummy dish that go well with your rice.

Whatever left over scraps of rice (burnt rice)) had hot water pour over and you can enjoy it lastly after you are done with your meal.

    @deannasallao: Thanks for your comment. I would leave my opinion on traveling along on your blog. I travel alone or with friends/hubby too but I still like going out there alone at times cos you can be your own boss and decide what to do, when to do.
