Dinner set B at Jong Ga House

Tonite I grabbed dinner with my dad at Jong Ga House in Oakland, California.  Overwhelmed with the menu, we decided to get one of their dinner sets so we could get some of everything!  They have a dinner set A and a dinner set B to choose from.  We chose B because the pa jun (korean pancake) included was a seafood one.  🙂

The meal started off with a cold spicy soup with buckwheat noodles and cabbage:

Then, the requisite banchan:

Next, my favorite – the Hae Mul Pa Jun or seafood pancake:

image  I love how they are so generous with the seafood in the batter!  The dipping sauce is a great combination of sesame and soy and really makes this dish.

Next, a soondubu of tofu, beef, and seafood:

The gal bi – who doesn’t love gal bi!

image  I love these bbq short ribs – so flavorful and tender.  This is why dinner set B is such a great deal.  One order of gal bi is about $29, when this whole dinner set is $29.99 per person!

Next, sauteed calamari cooked in house sauce:

Last, a panfried and grilled sole:

Yes, my friends, this was a “meal for 2”.  And while my dad and I are great eaters, we took more than half of this home.  What a deal!!
