Tonight we’re going to be trying a new dish
here at our favorite restaurant. It is going to be our last time to eat here because I’m
finishing my teaching contract and going back to Canada soon. Anyways, we’re going to be
trying the signature dish of this restaurant and it is called Dtalktoritang which is spicy
chicken vegetable stew. I’ve had this before and it is delicious. We’ve always come here
and had our Dolsot bibimbap and sundubu jjigae because we’ve loved it but this actually the
signature dish at this restaurant and we’re going to be eating it tonight. Yummy! How hungry are you? I’m hungry yeah! Hungry!
Yeah! Let’s see your hungry face? I’m hungry! My
hungry lion face? Rawr. Come on – I’m hungry! Gamsahamnida (thank you in Korean). There comes the stew. Here is our hearty chicken stew and it is
the perfect winter dish and it has got lots of pieces of chicken, potatoes, onions, vegetables
and it looks really tasty and really filling. It is bubbly bubbly bubbly. Let’s dig in! We have a nice piece of chicken breast over
here. I’m loading up myself. Lots of potatoes and lots of chicken. This is the perfect dish now that the temperatures
have dropped below zero. It is just so filling and it gets you feeling all warm. The potatoes
are nice and soft and the chicken has been boiling for a while so it is very tender.
It falls right off the bone. Yes, it is one of my favorite Korean dishes so far. I wish
I had discovered it sooner. Too bad. Tell us your thoughts? How much are you loving
this dish? I’m loving but I think you’re loving it even more. One of the interesting things
about this dish is that there are several different parts to the chicken here. There
are drumsticks and various parts without bones. There is some work involved while eating.
This is the bone section. Dtalkdoritang is what this dish is called
and I’ll break down the words we used. Dalktorri – tang means stew. You can imagine this as
chicken stew. I have a feeling it might be chicken mixed stew or chicken spicy stew.
It also has potatoes and onions and different things in it. It is steaming as you speak. This dish comes in a several different sizes.
The one we got here is actually a small. If you take a look at it it is not small. That’s
a lot meat boiling there. It’s a lot of meat and potatoes for two people. It also comes
in medium and large size, so this dish we’re ordering here is 19,000 Korean Won which is
17-18 USD these days. All of this for that price is really reasonable. The medium is
24,000 Won and the large is 29,000 Won. I’m guessing the large could feed an entire family
and maybe even an entire extended family. It is just a lot of food and we’re enjoying
it. We polished off the stew. This is what is
left of it and this actually the best part. The broth got really thick and it is flavorful
and saucy. You like your saucy foods don’t you? What a feast. What a great way to end my time
in Korea. And I think you have a little sauce on your lips in the corner of your mouth a
