Grilled Fish at Eo Gumteo 어굼터 PLUS Fish Translations

You find this chain of restaurants everywhere in Korea.  Their specialty is grilled fish--and it's lovely grilled fish.  I wasn't much of a fish lover before Korea, and some food snobs love to snipe about Korean fish--but come on!  It's freakin' grilled fish!  Crispy...
