After helping out at my uncle’s business the other day, he decided to take me out with some of his childhood friends. We ended up eating at three restaurants within a span of three hours. I didn’t get the names of any of the restaurants, nor did I know where the hell we were, my apologies.
The first restaurant was a BBQ place that specialized in chicken feet and chicken gizzards. The owner was a former soccer player and invited me out to play with his team the following Sunday. I played like crap so that’s all there is to know about that. Oh and the pictures were taken with my uncle’s Samsung Galaxy 2 so the quality is slightly different than the camera I normally use.
The chicken feet were marinaded in some kind of chili paste and the gizzard was just seasoned with salt and pepper.
Close up of the grill. Chicken feet to your left, chicken gizzard to your right, and a sliced potato in the middle. As bizarre as it looks, chicken feet just tastes like chicken skin. The bones are taken out so it just tastes and feels like your are eating spicy, grilled chicken skin. The gizzard has a very unique taste that I can't describe. It's slightly chewy and has a strange texture. I like it, but I could see why a lot of people wouldn't.

Hole in the wall chicken place/bar. The food wasn't picture worthy so this is the only picture I have of this place.
I do remember our last stop was in Apgujeong at a BBQ place that specialized in cow intestines. Most of you are familiar with pig intestines (chitterlings or gop-chang), but this was cow intestines. This was taken right outside the restaurant. Oh by the way, I'm only dressed like a bum because I came right after helping out my uncle at work. I had no idea I was going out afterwards.
Almost the exact same expression I had when I first saw the chicken feet.
So I wasn't a huge fan of these cow intestines. The pieces to the right were different parts of the intestines and were a lot more chewy and tough than the pieces to the left. The pieces to the left were extremely fatty and not as chewy.
