The menu at Gam Mee Ok is limited, with a few things on the menu like "blood" sausage, pig ears, and boiled squid that only the bravest will want to try. I actually really like these dishes, but when I go to Gam Mee Ok, it's for the Sul an Tang, a beef marrow soup with noodles, slices of beef, and some organ type meat, that you salt to your taste at the table. They don't serve ban chan, just kimchi and the turnip kimchi that they cut with scissors at your table. I know a lot of people who say that this is the best kimchi in the city, but it's a little too sweet for me to call the best, and I prefer Cho Dan Gol's.
Back to the Sul an Tang and its anti-hangover powers.... Well, that's the legend, but I'm not 100% convinced. But then again, just because it doesn't avert a hangover after drinking till 7am doesn't mean it doesn't work at all...
