When I watch a foodie program where the cast members eat delicious food while watching TV channels, my hands stop and I get more and more addicted to it. While looking at the screen where a foodie feast unfolds, âWhere is that place?â At the same time that thought, the search became busy. The places I'm going to introduce today are the restaurants in âBusanâ that have been introduced in many gourmet programs, such as the Demand Gourmet Party, Life Master, and the Three Heavenly Kings, and have proven their flavors. From Gwangan Seaside Park, which beckons with its gorgeous night view at night with its blue sea and sparkling sandy beaches, to Munhyeon-dong Mural Village, which arouses curiosity with its colorful murals, to Choryang Chinatown, which is full of exotic sensibility! 0% chance of failure! Here are some reliable Busan Broadcasting Gourmet Tour courses.
Starting with sputum mochi tteokbokki, which has a chewy texture, traditional Chinese dumplings bursting with moisture and juice, and even seafood that's fresh and fresh! That's where I saw it on TV! Let's stop being envious and go eat!

âDari Restaurantâ is a food stall that has continued its tradition for 40 years from 1980 until now. You can use the self-service system for everything from ordering to receiving food and returning plates. The signature menu is âtteokbokki,â made by mixing a whole thick rice cake with red sauce. After the mochi is boiled in the fish paste broth, the seasoning is soaked all the way to the inside, and the unique texture of the chewy rice cake is still alive. The combination of eating âsquid tempura,â which uses a thick layer of tempura batter on giant squid to make the most of its fluffy texture, dipping it in tteokbokki soup is also popular. The sweet and spicy seasoning soaks into the tempura batter and blends harmoniously with the chewy squid.

â²Testimonial (Shikishin's brother is a fool): A restaurant in Gwangalli that went to a gourmet party. It's a long-standing restaurant where children from the time they used to go with their mom all come as big adults. It's a different style of tteokbokki that comes out big. Celebrities often saw it.

âHoegoksu Halmaejipâ operates 24 hours a day and is a great place to visit casually. The inside of the store is shaped like a square, so customers who come to enjoy honbap can watch without getting bored. The signature menu, âHoeguksu,â is served in a nostalgic bowl filled with noodles, stingray sashimi, sauce, cucumber, and lettuce. The sauce, which is based on cheongyang pepper, is characterized by a spicy flavor that spreads intensely while being sour. If you wrap a variety of ingredients in one bite, including thinly sliced stingray sashimi, you can enjoy a rich texture, starting with elastic noodles, crunchy vegetables, and thick stingrays.
â²Location: 5, Seomyeon Munhwa-ro, Busanjin-gu, Busan
â²Business hours: 00:00 â 24:00 every day
â²Price: Hoeguksu 5,500 won, Chungmu gimbap 5,500 won
â²Testimonial (for eating bread): The amount is really large, so I'm full even if I eat just one bowl. The point is that there are marinades at every table, so if you want to eat more, you can add more! I usually eat hoe-guksu, but I also like hot noodles when it's cold.

âShoewonâ is a dumpling shop that has continued for three generations, starting with the first boss from China. It has the longest history in Busan's Chinatown, and has sold Shandong-style dumplings as well as traditional Chinese breads such as mooncakes, gonggalpan, and pretzel. The signature menu is âmeat gyoza,â where the moist juice bursts out as soon as you take a bite of the thick gyoza skin. Dumpling soup made from minced pork mixed with radish, ginger, and green onions is attractive for its chewy texture and savory flavor. âGrilled gyoza,â which is half-moon-shaped gyoza baked as if it were deep-fried, is also a popular menu. The combination of the crunchy dumpling skin and the mild leek flavor of the gyoza is exquisite.

â²Opening hours: 11:00 â 20:00 every day, closed on Tuesdays
â²Price: Meat dumplings 6,000 won, grilled dumplings 6,000 won
â²Review (steamed meat): It's a great place to go when you're out for a day out, even though it's cheap and not easy to eat. The bean soup is as warm as winter. The lady was kind, so I ate even more deliciously!

âWonsan Myeonokâ makes and uses everything from the noodles used in cold noodles to the sauce and broth. Watercress noodles are characterized by being served in the Pyongyang cold noodle style, and bim naengmyeon in Hamheung cold noodle style. The signature menu, âPyongyang Naengmyeon,â is made by adding raw chicken, green onions, onions, and radishes to a 12-hour broth, then adding beef, chestnuts, and soy sauce to capture the deep flavor. The noodles made by mixing soba and sweet potato starch in a 7:3 ratio have an impressive savory buckwheat flavor that spreads as you chew. âHamheung Naengmyeon,â which uses noodles made only with 100% sweet potato starch to make use of a more refined texture, is also a popular menu. The combination of chewy noodles mixed with a sweet and spicy sauce and stingray sauce stands out.
â²Location: 56-8 Gwangbok-ro, Jung-gu, Busan
â²Business hours: 11:00 â 21:30 every day
â²Price: Pyongyang cold noodles 11,000 won, Hamheung cold noodles 11,000 won
â²Testimonial (Kimminditti): All of the ingredients in cold noodles are made only from domestic products. I tried Pyongyang Naengmyeon, and I really liked that it had no seasoning and was not irritating. Originally, I don't eat soup very often, but I think the soup is a strangely appealing flavor..? So I skimmed not only the noodles but also the soup.

âJungni Haenyeo Villageâ is a place where you can find fresh seafood collected by the haenyeo themselves. Various seafood such as sea bream, sea cucumber, abalone, conch, and octopus are prepared on the spot and served to customers at the same time as they are ordered. Recently, a new building was built under the name âHaenyeo Fish Store,â where you can spend time in a more pleasant atmosphere. The combination of eating sea urchin eggs on top of gimbap is very popular here. The rich flavor of the sea urchin eggs tightly wraps around the tongue and fills the mouth, making the most of the umami of the gimbap.

â²Business hours: 12:00 â 19:00 every day

â²Testimonial (The food was incredibly tasty): Thanks to the seafood, they cut it right on the spot, so it was even more delicious. Also, the sea spreads out in front of you, making it even more tasteful! I think soju really feels like alcohol is in it..! I think it's better to go, especially when it gets a little bit dark!
