Normally, when I’m talking Korean goat stew, I send folks to Morton Grove’s great Chun Ju Restaurant, specialist in tabletop jeuk suk yum so bokkeum, which is claimed to be a tonic for wrinkles, osteoporosis, poor circulation, liver and kidney troubles, and bad vision, good for pregnant women, and a stamina booster in the hot summer months too. It’s less commonly stated that goat meat is a socially acceptable substitute for dog, which among other foods, like raw baby octopus, is said to make men, uh. . . “strong.”

Korean Viagra, OK? Jeez.
