“Crab on the Beach” : Gejang (Marinated Crab)
Hi~ Do you like Crab?
I want to introduce “Gejang”(name of Korean style crab cuisine).
Almost Korean like this food.
“Gejang” is a traditional dish that’s made by marinating raw crabs in soy sauce.
Historically, very salty soy sauce brine was used as a way of preserving the crabs for a long time. Nowadays, “Gejang” is enjoyed for its taste, so fresh crabs are marinated in mild soy sauce-based brine and usually eaten within a few days.
This modern version is enormously popular in Korea.
The soy sauce-based Gejang is also called “Ganjang Gejang (soy Sauce Marinated Crab)” to distinguish it from a spicy version, which is another modern concoction, called “Yangnyeomgejang(Spicy Marinated Crab)”.
“Ganjang Gejang (soy Sauce Marinated Crab)” is sweet and soft. So this is the most popular.
After we eat the flesh inside the shell, we eat rice with this sauce.
But I like the “Yangnyeomgejang(Spicy Marinated Crab) more than “Ganjang Gejang (soy Sauce Marinated Crab)”.
But if you can’t eat spicy food, maybe you will feel pain. Haha.
We will go to the Korean traditional restaurant that we can eat unlimited dishes.
So unlimited dishes price is about 12.99USD.
A little expensive, but you can eat a lot of kind of foods and unlimited:).
This restaurant is located in Insa-dong that famous about Korean traditional place.
This restaurant’s name is “Crab on the beach“.
This restaurant offers a range of tasty food. If you can’t eat raw crab, we can choose crab stew.
This stew is also famous.
And we can drink Korean traditional alcohol “Makgeolli(unrefined rice wine)”.
This taste is so good and a little difference with another alcohol. This drink has 6~7 alcohol degree, not high.
If you like seafood, you will eat deliciously~!
Especially Japanese and Chinese like this food.
Enjoy your dinner with me~
