… sounds like one of those “world’s shortest book” jokes. So, if you’re from Baltimore, does “great restaurants in Glen Burnie.” But needing a place to meet a friend near BWI, I did a little Googling and found Goong Jeon, at 202 Crain Hwy N. (The tip was the complaint from the person who thought the service was bad because he’d had to wait a long time while three busloads of Korean tourists ordered.)
It’s across the street from a strip mall, and hard to find even when you’ve found it: the big neon sign says “Palace.” But the foot was out of this world. I’d never had conch stew before, but I’d travel a long way to have it again. The miso was mediocre – too salty for my taste, anyway – but the seafood and scallion fritters were great and the conch was to die for. More than enough food for two hungry people came to $33 after a generous tip.
The bad news was that we were the only people in the place. Not a healthy sign, even on a Monday evening. So if you’re anywhere in the Baltimore/Washington area, do your community a favor and organize a group to go to Goong Jeon. If you’re disappointed, send me the bill and I’ll reimburse you.
