âSundae Gukbapâ is known as the soul food of Koreans in winter. The hot soup contains plenty of sundae and entrails, which are plentiful, filling the stomach. The popularity of gukbap has increased even more with the recent release of a song called Gukbap Song. From places you must try when you visit Seonghwan Oil Farm, to enjoy sundae gukbap at the birthplace of Sundae in Byeongcheon, and places you can't miss on a foodie trip to Jeju Island! Let's spend a warm winter with 6 sundae gukbap restaurants around the country!

â²Review (Choi Hyun-seok, the god of food â¥): Seonghwan Ewha Traditional Market, which has a 100-year tradition, has 6 sundae gukbap restaurants. Unusually, these gukbap restaurants are only open on the day of the market and the day before. They take a break for 5 or 3 days and are open for 2 days. They are only open 12 days a month. Here, I make my own sundae and use them right away. The soup is light and cool. It is said that they spend all their time making ingredients on their days off. I look forward to continuing to be a restaurant that values this kind of taste and style.

â²Testimonial (food muted): Among the foods I ate during my trip to Jeju Island, I still often think of sundae gukbap at Licorice Restaurant! This is the first time I've seen gukbap with Chinese cabbage, and it's nice that the soup is even more refreshing, so it's nice that it doesn't get sticky even after eating it. I ordered a sundae platter, but it was so plentiful that the alcohol went beyond alcohol. hehe

â²Testimonial (Shikigin Somsom Star): I usually like sundae soup, but when I went to Mangwon-dong, I went there on a weekday because there was a delicious sundae soup restaurant that was also served at a gourmet meal, but there was also a line for lunch time! It's not that big, and it's a very small restaurant, so a group meal is almost basic! The meal comes out fast! It was great that both Chinese cabbage, kimchi, and kakuteki were delicious and had perilla in them! It's a restaurant I want to go to again next time:)

â²Opening hours: 08:30 â 18:00 every day, closed on Mondays
â²Price: Sundae Gukbap 7,000 won, Sundae 12,000 won
â²Review (Shikigami Byeolnagyuna): I personally loved Sundae, so I visited this place. When it comes to sundae, Cheonan Byeongcheon Sundae is famous, so it's a place I'm even more excited to see that it was broadcast in an interesting magazine. The lamb had a huge amount of sundae and meat, just like the specials at other sundae gukbap restaurants, and the pork ribs were really tasty. The happiness of being able to enjoy it at a reasonable price, like a hot bowl of gukbap protects against the cold wind.
6. âDancheon Restaurantâ in Cheongho-dong, Sokcho, a heavy soup that relaxes the inside

â²Location: 17, Abaimaeul-gil, Sokcho, Gangwon
â²Opening hours: 08:30 â 20:30 every day
â²Price: Abai Sundae Gukbap 8,000 won, Assorted Sundae 24,000 won
â²Testimonial (Shikigin Tumini): Grandma was very kind to this restaurant… It was a place where sundae was as delicious as the person was! I visited early in the morning with my friend, and they were very happy to greet me, and no matter how much they said they would give me more for fear of not having enough sundae, the hot and cool sundae soup was perfect for haejang. Also, the squid sundae were so delicious that I packed them when I got home! For those traveling long distances, they also pack ice boxes, so I think you can pack them up and eat them at home! It's definitely not a gourmet restaurant.
