“Hwangjae-beol” is a charcoal-grilled specialty store located near Yangjae Station. The signature menu, “zukkumi,” is an octopus mixed with a spicy sauce that is freshly grilled and then grilled over charcoal and eaten. The spicy octopus combines the aroma and flavor added by charcoal, making it even more spicy. The method of forming a ball of rice balls with plenty of seaweed powder and raw fish eggs and grilling them together on a teppan is also popular.

“Chungmuro Jjukkumi Bulgogi” has a long history of 44 years from 1976 to the present. The signature menu, “zukkumi,” is served mixed with red sauce on the octopus at the same time as the order is placed. The sauce made by adding minced garlic and makgeolli to gochujang directly soaked in Suncheon boasts a rich, spicy flavor. Another popular menu is “shellfish,” which is eaten by mixing soft scallops with a special sauce and grilling them over charcoal.

â–²Review (Shikigami Yeonjikonji ><): It's a place where you can feel the atmosphere of a long-established store. The red color alone is appetizing, but you have to rummage several times to cook it so that it doesn't burn. The sauce is delicious and spicy, so it's addictive that you keep eating it. hehe

4. An octopus dish you can enjoy as a course, “Samo Jjukkumi” in Mieun-dong

“Samo Jjukkumi” is a place crowded with nearby office workers every time it's mealtime. The signature menu is “zukkumi grilled” and “zukkumi hot pot”, which can be enjoyed as a course. First, you can grill and eat octopus with a sharp sauce, and then enjoy the hot pot made by adding bean sprouts and green onions to bring out the refreshing flavor of the soup. Note that if you like, you can add ramen sari to the hot pot for a richer meal.

“Na Jeong Soon Halmae Zukkumi” is a place where there is always a long queue among the many stores in the octopus alley. The signature menu is “zukkumi,” where plump octopus mixed with a reddish sauce is stir-fried on an iron plate. It has an addictive flavor that combines spiciness with sweet and spicy flavors. I recommend eating sesame leaves with octopus and angelica sauce mixed with mayonnaise.

▲Opening hours: 11:00 — 22:20 every day, closed on Sundays

â–²Price: Octopus 12,000 won, fried rice 2,000 won

â–²Review (Park Sang-gun, Shikigin): This is the most famous restaurant in Yongdu-dong Octopus Alley. First, you have to order according to the number of people. The portion itself is really hearty, so you can eat to your heart's content. The fried rice with seaweed powder at the end is also the best!
