On April 9, the official Yeouido Cherry Blossom Festival will come to an end after about a week of cherry blossom viewing. Nevertheless, people continue to visit Yeouido Park, where the spring breeze blows, to enjoy the warm weather along the Han River. Here are some restaurants in Yeouido that will appeal not only to the tastes of those who visit to enjoy the holidays, but also to the tastes of office workers who are always searching for lunch menus during the week.
1. âHano,â a Chinese restaurant recommended by local residents
A Chinese restaurant famous among local residents in Yeouido, the popular menu is âHanno Champon,â which is topped with a whole octopus. The rich flavor is excellent using broth made with Korean beef bones, kelp, radish, drumfish head, and bandang. The noodles are made using chewy, handmade noodles. âGobarou,â a sweet and sour sauce colored with beets, is also one of the signature dishes. Using glutinous rice flour, it has a crunchy yet chewy flavor.
â²Location: 32 Gukjegeumyung-ro 7-gil, Yeongdeungpo-gu â²Business hours: 11:00-21:00 every day â²Price: Hanno Champon 8,000 won, Gobarou (small) 9,000 won â²Review (Shikigin Everyday Pansuni): Gobarou really changes life.. It's really crispy on the outside, but I was surprised that it became chewy when soaked in sauce and was so soft without being hard or chewy overall!!!! I don't think the sauce contains glacial acid. It's sweet and sour, but it's nice that it's not excessive.
2. âHongseol,â a mochi cafe using domestic adzuki beans
This cafe is famous for its âdaifukuâ made from domestic glutinous rice, red beans, and chestnuts. Based on adzuki beans boiled directly in a cauldron, they offer a variety of menus such as shaved red bean paste, red bean soup, and red bean bread. Among them, âcream red bean bread,â which is filled with sweet cream and adzuki beans, and the savory âsoboro red bean breadâ are popular. There are many people looking for âred bean paste,â which can be enjoyed warmly in the winter, but âshaved red beans,â made by putting sweet red beans on soft milk ice, is also a popular menu all the time.

3. Pyongyang cold noodle specialty store, 'Jeongin-myeonok'
A Pyongyang cold noodle specialty store located across from Yeouido Full Gospel Church. The signature menu is âPyongyang Naengmyeon,â which has a mild flavor and rich flavor. The slightly chewy noodles can be enjoyed even more deliciously when eaten with arongsa-tae beef and pickled radish. If you order pure noodles, you can enjoy 100% soba noodles.

If Eulmildae is pure Americano, this place adds 2 tablespoons of syrup.

Every morning, coffee is brewed using only homemade bread and beans that have been roasted within 24 hours. The signature menu is âmilk cream bread,â which is chewy bread filled with soft milk cream.

The filling is rich, and the sweetness is just right, and I can keep eating it without getting tired of eating it ^^ It's a normal style of bread, but I want to praise it for being the best in Yeouido.
5. Hot kishimono mushroom spicy soup, âGayang Kalguksu mushroom spicy soupâ
