Where to Go: JJ's American Restaurant Angeong-ri
Since moving to Korea The Harri-bou-bou, a born and raised Southerner, has been withering away without his BBQ sandwiches, while I have been crying myself to sleep over the lack of plantains in my life. Then, out of the blue, our lives were changed when we found JJ's American Diner. After four years without the taste of soul food, our hearts have found a home.
We originally tried it on a whim, because Braii Republic was closed and JJ's isn't far away. To be honest, we had very, very low expectations since it advertises itself as an "American" restaurant which usually means either weird food or tasteless food. Needless to say, we have never been so glad to be soooooooooo wrong. Thus far, we haven't had any bad experiences at JJ's and we eat there a lot. The food is fan-flippen-tastic. Like, no joke. Usually we stick to the pulled pork sandwiches, but last week The Harri-bou-bou went crazy and ordered the Macaroni and Cheese with Pulled Pork Panini. Mind blown. We also had a sample of some country fried chicken they are working on, it was wonderful.
Personally though, it's the Fried Dill Pickles and the Fried Plantains that make me get in the car and drive 20 minutes every week.. Just be warned, the plaintains will set you back a pretty penny, but if you are dying for the unique flavor it's totally worth it.
Pro Tip: If you like spicy then they have a special BBQ sauce you can order on the side, or on the sandwich. This is my preference. Also, they usually close for a short time between lunch and dinner so come before 2 and after 5. Oh, and this isn't fast food, it's delicious food so just chill out and wait.
Address: New Camp Humphry's Main Gate. Look for the building painted like an American flag.
