voilà, the KGS (new acronym I just invented for Korean Goat Stew) staff had our station rearing and ready to go.
Once we had cleaned most of the platter, the master piece, KGS, arrived. Our waitress came to check that our table's stovettes were going strong then brought the stew. She disappeared for a few minutes then came back with a pile of greens for wilting. I preferred the goat meat from the stew because it was much more tender than the roasted goat. The broth was amazing - complex and almost medicinal, but in a soul healing way. Not to be confused with nyquil.
After we had cleaned up most of our communal stew platter, our waitress took the pot and came back with the rice portion for the night. Carbs at last! We tried to let the rice crisp up on the burners but the greedy gobbler from within couldn't wait. We took several scoops then smashed the rice down in the pot to maximize the surface area.
Our happy bellies were full of goat and there were leftovers. The total came out to be about $27 a person, including about 6 bottles of hite, several bottles of soju and Korean black raspberry wine.
