korean food / seoul / Enjoying the Year of the Year to the fullest! 5 Best Pork Restaurants in Seoul – 2024

In January, when you start the year with a new mindset, you will not only be able to eat delicious ramen with a pork restaurant introduced by Shikishin, but you will also be able to make a stronger plan for the year. Pigs, who are the main characters of the year, are known not only for their lean meat, but also for the animals that generously give away their entrails and shells. Various parts with different flavors are divided into tens of thousands of recipes, and they are table heroes that automatically make you mouth-watering just by thinking about it, such as thick grilled pork belly, tender meat that is completely devoid of fat, and cold sam that becomes an “insider” even if you only put a certified shot on it.

Surround yourself with good people and exchange New Year's greetings with good people along with pork, which has a unique savory, green oil flavor and is a fantastic match for soba. We will introduce pork restaurants recommended by Shikigami in commemoration of the year of the Golden Pig, which came after 60 years.

The pork specialty store, “Golden Pig Restaurant,” is famous as a favorite place for famous celebrities such as BTS and EXO. You can enjoy a different atmosphere on each floor with a regular restaurant on the 1st floor, a bar on the 2nd floor, and terrace seats on the 3rd floor. All the meat at this house uses only YBD, a cross breed of Berkshire, Yorkshire, and Duroc pork that boasts rich, juicy lean meat and rich fat flavors. “Bon samgyeop,” a part of pork belly with ribs, is the signature menu. You can enjoy two cuts of pork ribs and ribs, and the chewy and chewy texture is excellent. The tip is to first eat properly cooked meat with a little salt that allows you to enjoy the natural flavor of the meat, and then eat it with yellowtail sauce or soy sauce. As a meal, “whole pork kimchi stew,” which has a deep flavor that has been cooked over a long period of time, is popular.

“Daesam Restaurant” is a place that uses only good quality rice from parents who run a yakiniku restaurant in Majang-dong. The signature menu, “Samgyeopsal,” is freshly cooled, cut and served to the customer at the same time as ordering. The pickles served as a side dish have a spicy and sour flavor that enhances the palate, and can also be grilled and eaten with pork belly. Another popular menu is the “mixed stew,” which is made with plenty of ham, sausage, kimchi, and mushrooms. The sharp broth captures the fatty flavor of the meat and is perfect as a snack for drinks. After eating the meat, “fried rice,” which is made by cutting shallots and kimchi and adding a savory flavor using lard, is also a must-have delicacy. Note that fried eggs can also be added to fried rice.

“Daesung Butcher Restaurant” is a grill specialty store that only sells meat in root units (600 grams). It's open from the afternoon until the next morning, so it's a great place to find even when it's late. The signature menu is pork meat called “pork even if you eat it boiled.” Please note that it takes about 20 minutes for the meat to be cooked at the same time as ordering. Ripe meat is served in chunks with a cutting board. It's fun to cut it directly into the size you want to eat, and you can enjoy the light texture while keeping it moist. Kimchi, which is prepared as a side dish, has an appealing, sour flavor that makes you drool. “Marbled Korean beef,” which is grilled on a stone plate and eaten with kimchi, is also a popular menu. Additional meat can also be ordered in half-weight (300g) units.
