Video: ZenKimchi does Andong jjimdak
Joe McPherson of ZenKimchi Food Journal continues his video series from the east-central South Korean city of Andong. His brother, chef Ben McPherson, and he enjoy the local variety of 찜닭 jjimdak, or a steamed chicken.
“Our first stop was Chicken Street, where we shared a big plate of Andong’s famous jjimdak. Braised chicken in a spicy dark garlicky sauce that kind of tastes like Coca Cola — I hear it’s used in some recipes — with hearty root vegetables, leeks and sweet potato starch noodles.” —Joe McPherson
Don’t miss the part where Joe snorts sweet potato noodles up his nose.
