It's a season when the quiet city of Beolgyo-eup becomes extremely busy in the cold, windy winter. The hand is busy picking out the plump komak. Komak at this time of
year is very popular because it is full and the savory flavor is maximized. You can enjoy komak in a variety of ways, such as simmering it and dipping it in soy sauce , noodles, and bibimbap.
Komak is divided into chamkomak and saekomak. Chicken komak is
yellowish when boiled and is characterized by its light flavor. The chamkomak has a chocolate color, and the more you chew it, the sweeter it becomes. In particular, chamkomak has a unique aroma and flavor, and the flavor is so good that once you try it, you'll be addicted to it. Here are 5 of the
best chamkomak restaurants in Seoul where you can enjoy the true taste of chamkomak without going to Beulgyo.

â² Testimonial (I mean eating
Beolgyo chamkomak): This is one of the few places in Seoul where you can eat Beulgyo chamkomak properly. The key is to boil the chamkomak so that the juice doesn't come out
and the meat doesn't come out. This is the right place to do it. The taste of
slurping on komak full of blood is excellent. Other seafood products are also cheap and nice. There may be no seats because there are only 6 tables.

It is cooked only to the point where the blood comes off slightly, but it's soft and tender, making it easy to eat. âCockle

seafood that doesn't leave any inventory, Seochon 'Seochon Step House'
âSeochon Staircase Houseâ is a place where they
sell everything on the same day without leaving inventory as a rule. There is no separate aquarium, and the seafood that comes in every morning is displayed at the entrance of the store. There are many menus that express the natural taste of seafood rather than overly seasoned foods.
The signature menu is âBeolgyokomakâ, which is characterized by its large size. People love it because it's fat and has a good chewy texture. âUmi Ramenâ contains plenty of seafood and is very popular among lovers because it is cool and the soup has a refreshing flavor. Please note that there may be waits, and if you visit late,
there may be seafood that is out of stock.

â² Testimonial (
Oh Hye-in, Shikigami): This is the Seochon Staircase House I went to a food party on demand! It's steamed scallops and
seafood ramen. Steamed scallops are 29,000 won, and seafood ramen is 7,000 won. First of all,
the steamed scallops were very chewy, full of juice, and soft without being tough!! I felt like I had caught a good
amount of good seafood. Seafood ramen was definitely seafood ramen, but there was no artificial feel of the ramen soup, and the deep
, refreshing flavor was excellent. It was a complete soju snack, so I felt like I was drinking alcohol while relaxing. The downside is that the price is high, but there are places that don't taste good at this price, so I'll give it four stars. The amount is small, so it's better to go the second car rather than the first one.
