Black Pork Street (흑돼지거리)_Enjoy a real Korean style BBQ course


As you may have heard, Jeju Black Pork has a far more superior taste from its mainland counterpart. Besides claiming to be far more delicious, black pork is considered special on the island because the pigs are native only to Jeju and the supply of it is controlled and quite limited, so even on the island the dish is only available at a few restaurants.

Many of the famed Jeju Black Pork restaurants are located on the popular Black Pork Street and the meat is good to eat on its own. The street is just 10 minutes by car from the Airport and 3 minutes by car from Jeju Ferry Terminal. Even here, many restaurants serve regular pork as well, however what you should choose is definitely Black Pork as long as you are travelling Jeju.

 

 


Black pork is actually a much redder meat than the average cut of pork. The redness of the meat is believed to contribute to a far more complex taste which is often described as having a solid and almost steak like quality to it. It lacks the gamey quality of other wild pigs, yet still retains the same fatty taste and elastic texture one comes to expect from that kind of pig.

A pickled anchovy sauce, called meljeot in Jeju dialect and is beloved by locals, is one of the distinctive sauces you will find in Black Pork restaurants. The unfamiliarity of this sauce, even to Korean travelers, made some restaurants stop serving it as a default setting. You need to ask a server if you want to try it (of course, it’s free of charge). After grilling your meat, just put a crisp lettuce leaf or sesame leaf in one hand, put a piece of sizzling black pork from the hot grill, gently dipped in the sauce (meljeot!!),  boiling in the center of your grill, then wrap them in the leaf and eat. As soon as you put it in your mouth, the succulent taste is unleashed!

You should also order Coldbuckwheat Noodles (mul-naengmyeon) or Spicy Buckwheat Noodles (Bibim naengmyeon) to go along with the Black Pork meat. They are on the house at some restaurants in the street. If you want to try a real Korean style BBQ course, just order leftover BBQ fried rice. The extra charge for it would be about 2000 won.

 

There are many other good places worth to visit just a stone’s throw away from Black Pork Street as well; Chilseongro Shopping Street, which is also called ‘Jeju’s Myeong-dong’, Dongmun Traditional Market, which is the oldest and biggest market in Jeju, and Tapdong Beach, which is one of the main tourist areas of Jeju City and regarded as a good place for nightlife.

Be sure to visit all of those areas after your black pork BBQ. Just taking a leisurely walk would be good for your health as well.
