Menus available in english and staff were very attentive and helpful, noticing we were struggling with the korean menus. The bossam here is served on a little steamer plate keeping it warm and moist throughout, this ensured it was still as if it was fresh out of the kitchen. The jokbal was fantastically velvety, with the pork skin having a pleasing chewy texture, and the bossam was soft, yet firm enough to hold it's shape. Their bossam kimchi was a great balance of spicy and sharp and there were some leaves covered in an apple sauce-like relish, which from a western palette was already a much loved pairing for pork; a surprise but worked well with the other sides. Bossam here is served with lettuce leaves, rather than chinese leaf, which I prefer personally. I absolutely would recommend this place, whilst not the cheapest bossam place in seoul, definitely my favourite due to their jokbal bossam set.
