부대찌개 (Budae Jjigae) Korean Army Stew 部隊鍋 is one of the very popular food to have whenever our friends have a gathering. We figured that we should have a proper one before the girls get home!
They recommended going to Nolboo, which is a chain well-known for Budae Jjigae as well as some other brands under the same chain.
This place actually serves Budae Jjigae for single customers, and it appeared to be quite rare, as most of the restaurants that we visited required a minimum of 2 pax to order this dish.
Menu was available in English, Japanese, and Chinese, with lots of pictures, so ordering was not an issue.
We decided to go for the Traditional Set (₩20,000 for 2 pax), and the Beef Set (₩22,000 for 2 pax) which came with noodles and drinks (a huge 1.5l of orange for the 4 of us :o), as well as the side dishes.
This was an easy meal, for the staff took very good care of us, helping us to set up and cook, and letting us know when we could eat 😀
There were lots of ingredients in both Budae Jjigae, and both were yummy!
Hubby definitely enjoyed the beef version more, while us gals were busy fighting over the different types of luncheon meat / spam / ham (as usual 😛 )
It was a fun and filling late lunch 😀
