Korean Food in Glen Burnie

I remember reading about a good Korean restaurant somewhere in the Glen Burnie area. What is the name and where is it exactly? Also, any advice on what to order/avoid?

  1. Shaking Duck Butt on Ritchie Highway just past 648 on the left as you head out of town. Honest. The name is in Korean, look for the cartoon duck butt. I haven't been in years, but they were always known for their noodle soups.

    1. I was there for lunch several months ago with a large group. Service was slow, even though the place was empty, but the food was uniformly excellent.

      1. I think you're referring to Goong Jeon, but there are about six other Korean places in Glen Burnie.

          Goong Jeon is on Crain highway, just NE of the intersection of B&A Blvd and Crain Highway. Reaaly nice lunch buffet, though I've not tried them for dinner.
          Ori Kun Daengi (AKA "Shaking Duck Butt" - a literal translation) is on Ritchie Highway, across the streeet from Le Fountain Bleu, just south of the interstcion of B&A Blvd and Ritchie Highway. I've found Shaking Duck Butt to be quite good for rice dishes like Bibim Bop, soups, stews, and noodle dishes. I've been less impressed with their stir-fried items, and I've not tried the few "American" items. I've also been impressed with the range and quality of the complimentary appetizers (don't know the Koprean term).
          Also in Glen Burnie
          Seoul on Aquahart - avoid, if it's still around
          Q's - on B&A between Crain and Rtchie - never been in its current incarnation, but in the past , the decor reminded me of a low-budget version of the set for The Newlywed Game, and the food was nothing special. They may have changed since.

        2. Shaking Duck Butt Restaurant is no more. There are signs on the doors announcing that it has closed. A Mexican restaurant is going to open shortly at that site - Viva La Raza.

          Goong Jeon, I believe, is a different restaurant. It is located on Crain Highway, whereas SDB was on Ritchie Hwy.

            I went to SDB the other night to take pictures of the signage. I, too, read the sign on the door, which bore the bad news in both English and Korean. But a thought just occurred to me - the note was presumably from the Korean owners, and yet I think it said "We" will be reopening as a Mexican restaurant called Viva La Raza. If this means that the Korean ownership is opening a Mexican restaurant, either by themselves or as partners, this could make for some interesting results - the sort of non-intuitive combination of ownership and cuisine that could be really bad or really good, with a possibility of some interesting quirks. I think this might be worth checking out when they open next week!

          2. Shaking Duck Butt closed!!!! SAY IT AIN'T SO!!!
            I'm going to have to go down there and at least take a picture of the sign for posterior... OOPS, *posterity*!
