Monday through Friday. Is there anything that can be comforting for the microbes living in a spinning wheel today? This post was created after thinking about. This is a lunch restaurant for office workers. Not the kind of lunch you eat just to fill your stomach or go out of your way to work and go out in a hurry. Here are some restaurants that will help you survive the rest of the afternoon, even if you eat one meal.
Of course, there's a bit of a price range, but wouldn't this luxury of a meal be worth buying for me after a hard time? You may not be able to visit together every day, but don't hesitate to visit if you want to feed yourself a delicious meal today. When you're looking blankly at the post with your eyes half-open and drowsy after being hit and drowsy, Shikigami gives you a little comfort.
1. 'Piyangkonghalmani' in Seolleung, a specialty store for homemade soybean dishes
'Piyangkong Halmani' is located near Seolleung's workplace. It is a restaurant specializing in homemade soybean dishes that my grandmother from Pyongyang has been running for decades. The name of the store comes from âpiyang,â which pronounces Pyongyang in the Pyeongan-do dialect.
The popular menu is âbean paste.â Since the beans are ground directly with a mill and no condiments are used, it is popular not only as a healthy food but also as a diet meal. Originally, biji was made by collecting the leftover scraps left over after making tofu, but this place serves tofu as waste paper without removing it, so you can feel the ground pork and finely crushed soybean shavings being chewed together. Thanks to this, you can enjoy it in a more elegant and simple way. The whole side dish is packed in a bowl placed at each table, so you can eat a little by little on each individual front plate. Usually, about 5 types are prepared. The savory âperilla sardine,â âmung bean paste,â and âplate gyoza,â which are made with soft boiled rice cake, are also popular items on the menu.
As a standard, 2 pieces of Nok Dujeon are provided, but they also sell one to customers who order a meal, so it's a good idea to order them with soybean paste. You can order the festival before and for the festival separately. Please note that there may be waitings at lunchtime due to nearby office workers.

2. The taste of 100-year-old yakiniku, Apgujeong's âKorea-Japan Pavilionâ
Apgujeong opened in 1939 and grew up with the history of Seoul after the Japanese era and the 6.25 war by selling nubani and beef janggukbap. It's a living history of Seoul-style yakiniku, which has been operated for three generations as a regular restaurant frequented by people from history and related people.
The signature menu is âgrilled sirloin yakiniku set.â The menu consists of âseasonal porridge, seasonal salad, soup, yakiniku, meal, and dessert.â Other menus other than yakiniku sirloin can also be ordered as a course, and you can choose from 7 different menus (beef stew, yukgaejang, mushroom perilla soup, miso stew, bone soup, dumpling soup, and cold noodles). âSeoul-style yakiniku,â which is made by mixing meat evenly with seasoning made by thoroughly simmering vegetables and fruits in rich soy sauce, is characterized by its own broth. The sweet and spicy broth is poured into the recessed part of the copper plate and the tender meat is grilled in the center, but putting vermicelli in the broth and eating it is also a delicacy.
The table setting is clean, and the food is light overall, making it a popular place for face-to-face meetings and family gatherings. Please note that rooms can only be reserved for groups of 10 or more. Meal menus can also be ordered as a single item, and you can also choose from a variety of configurations depending on the main menu.

3. Pyongyang dumplings, bedae-mochi, Apgujeong's âdumpling shopâ
A âdumpling shopâ that opened in 1982 and has shared the heyday of this colorful neighborhood. Located in Apgujeong, it is one of the top three dumpling restaurants in Seoul and preserves old sensibility and memories.
The signature menu is âdumpling soup,â which contains Pyongyang dumplings made with care in the same way a long time ago, in a rich broth with a rich flavor of meat. It's a dumpling soup with a very different visual appearance from the dumpling soup I knew before, and it only contains gyoza. The charm point is the scent of meat that fills your mouth as soon as you take in the soup. The filling of the North Korean-style gyoza is chewy, and the filling is completely filled with tofu, pumpkin, bean sprouts, and meat, so you can fully enjoy the moist juiciness and texture. The seasoning in the broth is minced meat mixed with various ingredients such as red pepper powder, pepper, and garlic, which adds a cool and refreshing flavor. One popular menu item is the âbeddae mochi,â which has a soft, fluffy texture made by mixing finely chopped Chinese cabbage and green onions on a finely ground mung bean dough. You can enjoy it even more if you eat it with oyster mushrooms.
As the name âgyoza shopâ suggests, there are 5 types of light and simple menus, âgyoza hot pot, dumpling soup, bean paste, bean paste, red pepper paste,â and you can adjust the amount according to your personal preferences. The broth can be refilled, and the sauce included in the broth can be removed if requested when ordering. Packaging is also possible.

â²Location: 661-1 Sinsa-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul â²Opening hours: 11:00-21:00 every day, closed for holidays â²Price range: Dumpling soup 10,000 won, bean paste 9,000 won â²Review (Food full of mouth yum yum): Big, fresh Korean dumplings. When steaming dumplings, the blood is thin, so they often fall apart quickly, but since the blood of Egyptian dumplings is so thick, the inside of the dumpling doesn't scatter and is well shaped. A restaurant that is easy to eat
4. The classic Pyongyang cuisine, Gangnam âNeungdoâ
âNeungla-doâ is a Pyongyang restaurant that has established itself as an emerging powerhouse in the Pyongyang cold noodle industry. Before opening its doors, Neungla-do, which captivated even young people with its popular taste after traveling around the country for a year to study the taste of Pyongyang cold noodles, is relatively simple compared to other Pyongyang cold noodle specialty stores, making it a great place for beginners who are new to Pyongyang cold noodles to visit.
The signature menu is âPyongyang Naengmyeon.â It is characterized by the deep, rich meat broth that is brewed every day and noodles picked from soba made by hand. I recommend tasting the soup without loosening the noodles at first, then loosening the noodles to enjoy the rich flavor that comes from mixing with the broth. The noodles, which have a savory soba flavor, are cooked just right and are easy to eat. The light style of âplate gyoza,â which contains a lot of tofu, is also one of the most popular dishes, and it is also a delicacy to put all the noodles in cold noodles and enjoy them like dumpling soup. The broth can also be refilled. The warm soup âonbanâ is also popular in winter.
The mung bean paste and gyoza, which are easy to eat with cold noodles, are also sold in 1/2 quantity, so even those visiting alone can enjoy it casually. Note that the Bundang branch is the main store, but the Gangnam branch opened not long ago and is visited by many people, and reservations are not possible during the summer season.
