Mountain is a Korean restaurant in Buena Park. You can have the sundubu that the menu proudly states is made without MSG and isn’t served with a raw egg (an American invention, it says) but the specialty of the house is the abalone porridge called jeonbokjuk, which is the very definition of Korean comfort food. Mountain’s version is served on a deep, oblong plate with a single raw egg yolk on top that you’re supposed to stir into the hot, gloppy mixture as soon as it arrives. The best thing you can order is the spicy seafood and whole crab stew, with which you can experience Mountain at what it does best: making you feel like you’re being doted on by someone’s Korean mom.
