korean food / seoul / 5 best bean noodle restaurants to keep your mouth fresh on a hot day – 2179

The season for bean noodles has just arrived. Unlike cold noodles and noodles, soybean noodles, which are usually enjoyed in summer, have an attractive flavor and softness of soybeans, and are full of plant-based protein nutrients, so you can get the flavor and health all at once in hot weather. Bean noodles are eaten by thoroughly washing and soaking beans, boiled well without a fishy smell, grinding them finely, adding cold ice, seasoning only with salt, and rolling up the noodles. Even if you don't have any other side dishes, you can enjoy a cool and hearty bowl. From places that have been loved for over 30 years for their rich, white bean noodles, to places newly opened with a youthful interior! Here are the 5 best bean noodle restaurants that will keep your mouth hungry on a hot day.

Everyone knows “Pearl House” when it comes to bean noodles in Yeouido. Located in the underground shopping district of Yeouido Department Store, this place has been loved for over 30 years. Cold bean noodles, which are the signature dish of this restaurant, are wrapped in noodles with an immaculate bean soup that has been seasoned without a garnish. If you add Bossam kimchi, which is served as a side dish, the flavor is doubled. Note that there are long lines at lunchtime in the summer, but the turnover rate is fast.

â–²Testimonial (Shikigami's phone stopped): This place's bean noodles definitely come to mind in the summer. The soup is really thick, but it has such a strong savory flavor. If you put kimchi on top of bean noodles and eat it in one bite, it's the best honey combination!

Located in the back alley of a triangle, “Old House Noodle House” has been steeped in 38 years due to its shabby exterior and sliding doors. Here, the soybean water is thin and salty, and the visuals of black sesame are appealing to the palate. When the noodles mixed with the soybean soup come up and eat, the bowl empties in an instant. The sweet and spicy bibimguksu and the rich anchovy broth are also popular. Adding a sari is a service that you can enjoy to the fullest.

â–²Location: 18, Hangang-daero 62-gil, Yongsan-gu, Seoul

â–²Opening hours: 06:00 – 21:00 every day, closed on Saturdays

â–²Price: Bean noodles 7,000 won, bibimguksu 5,000 won, hot noodles 4,000 won

â–²Review (Shikigin Paris 3 times 7): A place that stands out for its old-fashioned atmosphere from the entrance. The bean noodles here are attractive because of the savory soybeans that fill your mouth. The amount of noodles is also generous, so you can fill your stomach with just one bowl.

3. Euljiro 'Gangsanok' sold for lunch only in the middle of summer

“Gangsan Ok” is located on the 2nd floor of an old building in Euljiro. It is 61 years old, but once you open the door, it is clean and tidy. This place only sells soybean noodles from May to October. The bean noodles served as a hearty treat are soft and light with the savory flavor of soybeans along with the well-boiled noodles. We recommend visiting early, as they close when supplies run out.

â–²Location: 196-1 Cheonggyecheon-ro, Jung-gu, Seoul

â–²Opening hours: 11:30 to 15:00 every day, closed on Sundays

â–²Price: Bean noodles 9,000 won, soybean paste white rice 7,000 won

â–²Review (Eating Turtle House): Bean noodles topped with plenty of cucumber! When I took a bite of the soup and ate it, I felt the mild yet rich flavor. It's fun to chew chewy by using medium noodles instead of somen, and it's a flavor that keeps coming back to mind.

4. Daechi-dong “Piyangkong Halmani” made by grinding it yourself with a mill

“Piyangkong Halmani” was selected for the 2019 Michelin Bib Grumman. There is a cauldron and millstone in the corner of the restaurant, where you can see the process of preparing ingredients with soybeans. The bean noodles here are thick, rich in flavor, and light. Five dishes, including kimchi and stewed tofu, are served, and each dish has tongs, so you can eat it on a private plate. As a delicacy, I recommend eating the crispy and moist mung bean paste together.

â–²Location: 30 Samseong-ro 81-gil, Gangnam-gu, Seoul

â–²Opening hours: 11:30 – 22:00 every day

â–²Price: Bean noodles 9,000 won, soybean paste 8,00 won

â–²Testimonial (Shikigin! Tiroli): You can find a variety of dishes, such as biji and hot pot made with soybeans. Among them, my favorite dish is bean noodles! Once you take a bite of the broth, which has the rich flavor of soybeans, you won't be able to put down a spoonful of it!

5. Clean sentimental interior, 'Sangam Hall' in Sangam-dong

'Sangam Hall' was newly opened in the Savoy City building in Sangam-dong. It is an eye-catching place with its stylish and minimalistic interior. This place, which only sells a single menu of bean noodles, has chewy noodles, and the thick bean soup with a slight flavor is light and savory. It tastes good when served with the sweet and sour kimchi served on an individual basis. The area is crowded with office workers on weekdays for lunch, so be careful when visiting.

[Shikigami Tip]

â–²Location: 17 World Cup Buk-ro 54-gil, Mapo-gu, Seoul

â–²Opening hours: 11:00-21:00 every day, 11:00-20:00 on Saturdays

â–²Price: Bean noodles 9,000 won

â–²Testimonial (Shikigin is crab crab): It's a restaurant that competes with only one bean noodle menu without any other menu. The eye-catching, immaculate soup and noodles go in harmony. It's also great to add the sugar on the table according to your taste and enjoy it in a sweet style!
