'Gangneung Champon Sundu Fudong Hwa Garden' was the first place to develop a champon sundubu menu in Korea. It's so popular that there are long lines even on weekday mornings. The signature menu is âWonjo Champon ,â which combines fragrant champon soup with a fluffy puff. Soft sundubu neutralizes the spicy and sharp flavor of the soup and blends harmoniously. âHand tofu,â which is made by grinding domestic soybeans and using seawater as a base, is also a popular menu item. At first , I recommend tasting the natural aroma of tofu and eating it with soy sauce and pickled sesame leaves. Please note that âWonjo Chansoon â can only be ordered from 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.

â² Review (Shikigin Tuminini): Sundubu I don't like it, but I fell in love with it when I ate champon sundubu here. I went there as soon as I opened the door in the morning, and there were quite a few people at that time too! After all, it's a gourmet restaurant. The combination of the cool champon soup and sundubu was definitely the best. This is the place that provided an opportunity for me to decide that if I eat champon in the future, I should roll up sundubu and eat it without throwing away the soup. I think those who like chuku-sundubu will be delighted. If you go to Gangneung, be sure to try it! It's the best

The signature menu, âSteamed Fish Platter,â offers plenty of different types of fish, such as stingrays, kodari, flounder, skewers, and pike. The light fish is simmered with condiments to keep it moist and well-seasoned. Because of its generous portion and spicy flavor, it is also a favorite of lovers. The well-ripened radish adds a sweet flavor, and is also popular for its plentiful steamed sandfish paste. Please note that when ordering steamed fish, rice balls must be ordered separately .
