The warm weather and new green clothes on the mountains in June are a great place to enjoy hiking. The path up the steep mountain is a bit difficult and difficult, but the view from the summit and sense of accomplishment cannot be replaced by anything. Climbing itself is fun, but one of the fun things you can't miss is delicious food that satisfies your hunger after climbing. From places that are great for putting a cup of makgeolli on savory tofu to lamb that's great for taking care of your body! Here are 5 of the best places to eat on Seoul's hiking trails to fill your stomach.
1. The lavishly decorated Hansang and Bukhansan âManseokjangâ

At Manseokjang, you can enjoy a meal while looking out at Bukhansan Mountain and Bukhancheon. The signature menu is the âsambap set meal,â where you can enjoy meat that has gone through a pristine roasting process to make use of its moist, juicy meat. Along with the meat, it is served with miso stew, wild vegetable bibimbap, steamed egg custard, and soft tofu. You can choose meat to suit your preferences, such as pork belly, duck, and shoulder loin, and you can use the wrapped vegetables as an all-you-can-refill.
â²Location: 43-10 Daeseomun-gil, Eunpyeong-gu, Seoul
â²Opening hours: 10:30 â 20:00 every day
â²Price: Pork sambap 13,000 won, mushroom hot pot (medium) 30,000 won
â²Testimonial (Where you eat delicious food): I was surprised that sambap comes with a lot of things other than meat and wraps. There are so many types of wrapped vegetables, and it was nice to be able to eat a really hearty meal because you can use them in unlimited quantities. ^^~~

âGrandpa Achasanâ has a long history of 40 years. The signature menu, âsundubu,â is made from 100% domestic soybeans and has a light yet rich flavor. You can enjoy the natural flavor of sundubu with marinated seaweed without seasoning, and then eat it with sauce, kimchi, etc. I also like the seasonal menu âKongguksu,â which can only be enjoyed in summer.

â²Price: Sundubu 3,000 won, bean noodles 5,000 won
â²Review (Shikigami Junbly Love): A must-see course after climbing Mount Achasan! They only sell tofu and bean noodles without any other menu, and they are all delicious. Sundubu has a nice, smooth texture like steamed egg custard!

âSnow Tree Houseâ has been featured in famous media and magazines and is a very popular place. The signature menu is âkimchi rolled noodles,â made by adding ice cream to the sour kimchi soup. The combination of the chewy noodles and the refreshing and refreshing soup is excellent. âTteokgalbi,â where beef is finely chopped, seasoned with sweet and spicy soy sauce, and grilled with mochi, is also a popular menu.

âYongsun Crayfish Bone Handmadeâ is located at the entrance of the Suraksan Mountain Encounter Course. The signature menu, âSujebi,â is a natural condiment made by grinding kelp, shrimp, and anchovies, and simmered in broth to add rich flavor. The homemade rice dough, which is mixed with soybean flour and wheat and aged for 24 hours, has an extraordinary chewiness. You can choose between mild, medium, or spicy homemade rice according to your taste.

âDobongsan Lambâ has a variety of spaces, from indoor seating to outdoor terraces. The signature menu is âtriangular rib,â which is the softest part of the lean meat with lamb backbone. A well-grilled rib will leave your mouth full of moisture and juiciness. The mild flavor of charcoal captures its unique flavor, making it easy for people who are new to lamb to enjoy.
