After watching episode 513 of the Korean variety show Running Man where they were playing a game where the two teams have to buy the ingredients to make the Korean stew nakji jeongol (Korean octopus stew), I developed a sudden craving for this aromatic Korean stew, so I did a search and found out that nakiji jeonggal stew is not very popular in Singapore and it seems that the only restaurant that serves this stew is Kim’s Family Restaurant.
Yes, here comes the Nakji Jeongol that I came for. This Korean spicy octopus casserole is usually meant for 2-3 people, but I managed to finish the pot all by myself. Fresh baby octopus is cooked together with mushrooms, tofu, green spring onions, black fungus and Korean rice cakes. The soup is not overly spicy, even non-spicy eater like me can tolerate and it is totally slurp-worthy. (I meant to take a video of the stew but I pressed the wrong button in mistake and ended up taking a time-lapse video instead.)
