You go to Jjamppong for the spicy raw crab: six small crab halves sitting underneath a gigantic mound of vegetables covered in chili sauce. Put on a plastic glove, squeeze out the translucent, gelatinous-looking meat onto the snacking seaweed and rice that goes with it—and prepare for red sauce to go flying. This dish is messy, fun, spicy and zippy all at once, and worth a trip to this always-crowded Korean Chinese spot in the Outer Mission. But don’t shy away from their other Korean specialties. There’s a fantastic seafood jjamppong, an onion-heavy jajangmyeon, and some of the plumpest double-fried chicken wings around. Even with a wait, this place is exactly what a notch-above-casual weeknight dinner should be.
