The kimchi soup is always the first dish that we would dash for because it is soooo popular. Relatively thick gravy and flavourful. Look! The soup is finishing up faster than the ingredients!
Second on my list to dash for is the rice cakes, ddeokbokki. Fresh fish cakes and rice cakes that are chewy and not too hard. Sauce is good too.
Third item to dash for is the pancake, pajeon. Thin slices and fragrant. Those who prefer thick batter may disagree that this is worth dashing for.
And finally, meat dishes is what people may dash for at other restaurants. But in Ssikkek, even though all the side dishes and drinks have ran out, the meat continues to be available. It isn't that the meat dishes are not popular, in fact, they are very well marinated and delicious. The standard chicken, pork and beef variety is sufficient to fill any hungry fellow.
While all these may sound all too good, are there things to note while dining there? Yes, there are. Firstly, due to long queues at the restaurants all the time, they have staggered the dinner hours. I may not be totally certain but I think there are only 2 timings to choose from for dinner, either 6pm or 8pm. So, timing isn't that flexible. Secondly, if you are taking the 8pm dinner slot, fast fingers are needed to dash for the side dishes because the dishes may run out by 8.30pm :( Thirdly, the restaurant closes at 10ish, so dinner at 8pm may be a little short if your plan is to have a slow and relax meal....
