have been thinking for a while for the title but I ended up with this embarrassing title which is the direct translation of the Korean name. it’s basically pork with rice in soup.
it’s a famous Busan delicacy but I have no idea why this 24 hour shop is named as Gyeongju Kuk Bab ( Gyeongju’s rice in soup)
it certainly doesn’t look too delicious but just 1 scoop to see what’s hid under the soup, you’d know this is going to be good.
happy girl with her dweji-kuk-bap.
this is how you’re supposed to eat it. their slices of pork is like slightly thinner slices of bossam. with those salty mini prawns which goes marvelously well together.
the place is nothing fancy, it’s at one of the alleys at those shop lots right opposite the Busan Station.
but I can assure you these ajumma’s and ajosshi’s that work here are pro’s in this dish. they do it so quick. we went to other places that sells this too but you can see the technique they use to make this dish. the technique of a pro and a.. well not so pro.
there’s the 돼지국밥 dweji kuk bab (pork soup rice pfft), 내장국밥 naejang kuk bab (intestines), 순대국밥 sundae kuk bab, 섞어국밥 seokko kuk bab (mixed) and the list goes on…….. wanted that 수육 too because their pork is pretty darn fresh and delicious. but the pork inside our dweji kuk bab is already aplenty and it feels like there are never ending slices of pork inside as you dig in.
this place omits a high concentration of PORK SMELL. even from far away you can kind of smell it. oh you fresh porky! <3.
this is the shop I went to. but dweji kuk bab’s are meant to be famous in Busan so you can find it anywhere and it is supposed to be good. because it’s Busan. hahaha.
