Hamming It Up: Ham Ji Park

Ham Ji Park is a palace of the porcine. Located on Sixth Street just west of Catalina in Koreatown, it is filled with kitschy little pigs...pig signs, pig figurines, etc, and it makes some of the best pork spareribs in town. These ribs, each with a thin piece of tender meat attached, are juicy and full of flavor-salty, sweet and delicious. They are cooked in the kitchen, not on the table.

At lunch a single serving of the ribs, with panchan, easily feeds two and goes for a measly $16 making it a great lunch for the K-Town business crowd.

The only problem with ribs is the bone. If the meat falls off, that's wonderful. If you have to cut it off, not so wonderful.

I'm a lazy eater.

Do they have spicy ribs as well?

They give you scissors to cut the little flap of meat off, but yes, you've gotta' handle the ribs to get at all the meat. It's not too messy though, compared to say, Southern style BBQ ribs.

The basic ribs aren't too spicy, but I assume you could ask for them spicy.
