James Cheese Back Ribs - Hongdae Branch 제임스 치즈 등갈비

Grilled back ribs might sound familiar but have you ever imagined having it with cheese and corn?
Then here at korea you can try this dish, the succulent pork ribs meet with the melting cheese and corn... Yumm~~~

This trend actually started in 2014 and now you can find their branch all over korea.

 The ribs glazed in the sweet spicy sauce, you can choose the level of spiciness and the amount of the cheese in the platter. egg, corn, potato, and sweet potato also will be serves as side dish. dont forget too order rice for pan fried rice if you want to enjoy it like natives.
