I'm hesitant to go out due to the cold wave that continues every day, but I'm even more eager to think about cold noodles, which are perfect for boosting my taste buds. âThe cold is governed by the cold.â That's a disgusting! Overcome this winter with âIno Chi-naoâ! Starting with the spicy and sour bibimbap cold noodles, hae-cold noodles topped with chewy sashimi, dongdong watercress noodles, and even the bitter taste of Pyongyang naengmyeon! The charm of the plump noodles that dance in your mouth! Here are 5 of the best cold noodle restaurants in the country.
1. Naengmyeon Street in Ojang-dong, 'Ojang-dong Heungnamjip Main Store' in Jung-gu, Seoul

â²Price: 10,000 won for sashimi bibimbap cold noodles, 10,000 won for meat bibimbap cold noodles, 20,000 won for beef
â²Testimonial (Shikigin XOXO): I usually eat Hamheung cold noodles when I want to eat cold noodles because the light Pyongyang cold noodles don't fit my mouth. Heungnam's sashimi cold noodles have a moderately shredded sashimi and a good seasoning that isn't irritating, so even if you empty a bowl of sashimi, it's a pity.

â²Price: Cold noodles 11,000 won, gyoza 11,000 won, meat 22,000 won
â²Testimonial (Jieun Sikshin): If you drink the broth before and after removing the red pepper powder, the umami definitely gets stronger when you remove it. Even though it had a strong flavor, the broth was so clear that the noodles were firmer than I thought, so it wasn't an easy style to cut off, but the soba content seemed high! The dumplings were also nice because they were thick, so when I dipped them in soy sauce, I really enjoyed the soy sauce flavor. Just a little bit of soy sauce! I was hungry before I went to Pildong-myeon-ok, so I cooled down at the fastest speed ever.
5. The first pollack noodles, 'Hamheung Naengmyeonok' in Sokcho, Gangwon

It doesn't look like this, but it's really delicious when you eat it. If I was a little bored, I added the rice cake next to it, and I found that the seasoning was perfect and delicious:) Oh, and hand dumplings are the best!!
