Pro Soy Crab (프로간장게장) Gangnam Branch (How to go and what to expect)

One of Korea’s traditional dish is Ganjang Gejang or “soy-marinated raw crabs”. I was supposed to take my mother to Pro Soy Crab (she is a huge fan of crabs) while we were in Busan but due to changes in our schedule I told her that I’ll take her to the restaurant when we’re back in Seoul.

It was our first time to eat raw crabs so we were all curious and excited on how the dish would taste like!

How to go to Pro Soy Crab in Gangnam:
(Apologies in advance with the photo directions because it was raining hard that night!)

we also ordered egg!! ( sorry the photo is so blurry because my hands were already dirty since we were already eating the ganjang gejang!! Highly recommend ordering this dish as well! We don’t know why their steamed egg tasted so good
IMG_4077
We ordered some plain rice because I remember seeing Koreans (on tv) scrape the egg roe from the shell and mix it with rice!

It’s like i was able to get pt 2 of the gaeal bibimbap

Should you go to Pro Soy Crab and try the ganjang gejang? YES especially if you love crabs!!

It was a different twist on how to enjoy eating a crab. I am so happy I was able to finally try this dish!
