This bowl of jam bong at Masijta Grill is next level

On a cold day like this one, I found myself craving a hot and spicy noodle soup. And as my wife was shooting on location at PIXO, I stopped into under-celebrated Masijta Grill on Race St.

My server recommended the jam bong to me, which translates to nothing really, according to him. But they define it as spicy seafood soup, and that is exactly what it is.

The rich, deeply red broth is colored and flavored with peppers and is the perfect backdrop for a host of different types of seafood, including mussels, scallops, squid, and shrimp. The noodles are not thick like udon and not thin like Ramen. It’s almost like spaghetti, but, you know, not exactly.

As it is a Korean joint, the meal comes with a host of fermented salads, kimchi, marinated bean sprouts, seaweed salad, and more.

I would type more, but I’m seriously having a love affair with this bowl of soup right now.

Stop in and get you a bowl. It’s the sort of thing that helps keep you happy when you wake up to find that your subhuman State Rep in Congress is a Nickelback fan, and proud of it.
