Ddong Ggo is Korean for “butthole.” In the restaurant's case, this refers to a chicken's, which is why its logo is an angry chicken with its, um, butthole censored by a red X. Ddong Ggo’s house specialty is a dish called Cheese Island. It’s a large cast-iron skillet with dividers running through the middle, filled entirely with shredded white cheese. The skillet is set atop of a burner on the diner's table, so the cheese begins melting within moments. The cheese is the ocean: Cheese Island is the pile of fried chicken wings and fries stacked like Jenga blocks on top. To be clear, this is a real place. There is a real Dallas-area restaurant named Butthole that sells a Cheese Island. It also makes nacho Cheetos french fries, kimchi pizza fried rice, a soup topped with Kraft singles and a cocktail that’s a pint of watered-down vodka with a popsicle in it. Who needs the state fair?
