Yuktongryeong: Black Pork never tasted so good

As a restaurant where one can get a taste of the famous Jirisan Mountain Black Pork in Seoul, Yuktongryeong is flourishing with customers every day, thanks to its appearance in the variety television show "The Demand of Luxurious Food." The most popular menu in this restaurant is grilled skin-on black pork. As its name implies, unlike the regular pork belly meat, skin-on pork belly is cut along with the skin to create a chewy texture.

Dipping the skin-on pork belly lightly in the salt is the best way to taste the original flavor of the meat itself. Enjoy the grill with the salad and side dishes served to clear out any after taste. Another popular menu, kimchi jjigae is also an excellent partner with the skin-on pork belly.
