âDaejeonâ is located between the Chubu region and the southern region. It is a place where railways such as the Gyeongbu Line and Honam Line intersect with the national roads of the Gyeongbu Expressway and Honam Expressway, and it is an area known as the center of transportation and the city of science and technology. Although it is nicknamed an uninteresting city these days, it is considered the best place for a spring outing, with various cultural and tourist facilities such as Expo Park, Gyeryongsan Mountain, Daecheongho, Hanbat Arboretum, Oworld, and Root Park. Duruchiki and kishimasu are representative local foods of Daejeon and are one of the must-try foods when visiting Daejeon.

1. 'Gwangcheon Restaurant' in Seonhwa-dong, Daejeon competes with its intense spiciness

âKwangcheon Restaurantâ is a specialty store that has maintained a 45-year tradition. This place, which is well known as a local restaurant, has always been visited by tourists since it was introduced in famous media. The signature menu is âsquid turugi,â made by adding red pepper powder and green onions to squid lightly boiled in anchovy broth and stir-frying on your own. Just watching the bright red color of the turuchiki that is stir-fried and bursting with hot seaweed at the same time as ordering makes my mouth full. Thickly sliced squid with a chewy texture blends with sharp condiments to create an intense spiciness. Another delicacy is to remove the squid and add kishimsu sari to the leftover soup and grate it.
â²Location: 29, Daejong-ro 505beon-gil, Jung-gu, Daejeon
â²Opening hours: 10:30 â 21:30 every day, closed on Mondays
â²Price: Squid roll (2 people) 20,000 won, pork (small) 18,000 won
â²Review (My mom and I both liked spicy food): I went there because my mom, who is good at spicy things, wanted it to be spicier and spicier, and I was normal, so it was spicy!! However, it was delicious and spicy, so even though I was full, I ate it so deliciously!! They were kind and asked for what was left, so they quickly packed it for me!! I wanted to eat soju on the sirlop, but I was so hungry that it was disappointing. The amount was huge, it was delicious, and I admit why it's a gourmet restaurant!
2. 'Wonmi Myeonok' in Biryong-dong, Daejeon, where the flavor of chicken comes alive

âWonmi Myeonokâ began with the first boss who took refuge from Goksan in Hwanghae-do during the Korean War. Since it first opened its doors in 1953, it has continued the family business for the third generation and has become a representative cold noodle restaurant in Daejeon. The hot noodle water provided when you sit down gently soothes an empty stomach. The signature menu, âWatercress noodles,â is presented in Hwanghae-style style, where soup is made from chicken broth. On the noodles made by milling soba that has been stir-fried over a long period of time, a yellow egg and a bunch of crunchy torn chicken garnish were placed to add richness. The combination of the broth, which has the unique flavor of chicken, and the soba noodles, which become more savory as you chew, is excellent. You can enjoy the original flavor of the soup at first, then soak up the sauce when you have about half of it left.
â²Location: 421 Okcheon-ro, Dong-gu, Daejeon
â²Opening hours: 10:00 â 20:30 every day, closed on the first and third Tuesdays
â²Price: Watercress noodles 6,000 won, bibim-naengmyeon 7,000 won
â²Review (Hoya Shikigami): My Life's Cold Noodle House..!! It's not a cold noodle flavor that you often think of, but a flavor you can't understand until you try it! In particular, bread straight from Haejang on the day after drinking! In summer, you have to wait in line to eat… In winter, check out the jajangmyeon champon as a seasonal menu, and it's not on the menu, but chicken wings cost a whopping 4 thousand won!! Be sure to check it out!!
3. 'Jinro Zip' in Daeheung-dong, the originator of Daejeon tofu dumpling

âJinro Jipâ is well known as the birthplace of Daejeon's famous tofu doluchiji. It started as a food stall selling snacks in 1969, but as the number of customers looking for tofu dishes increased, they have been selling tofu mainly since the store moved. The signature menu is âtofu doluchi,â where the seasoning that penetrates deep into the thick slices of tofu adds a deep flavor. It's so spicy that sweat forms on your forehead when you take two drinks, but it's strangely addictive because of the finish that falls off cleanly without being sticky. You can choose from 3 flavors of duruchiki: spicy, medium, and mild, and there is also a menu where tofu and squid are stir-fried together.
â²Location: 45-5, Junggyo-ro, Jung-gu, Daejeon
â²Opening hours: 11:30 â 22:00, B/T 15:00 â 16:30
â²Price: Tofu pudding (medium) 17,000 won, kishimen noodles 4,000 won
â²Testimonial (Kim Dong-hwan Shikigin): This place really tastes like the tofu roll made by my grandmother. Every time I go to Daejeon, I always have a meal here, and it's really great. Since it's made with broth, the doluchi soup is also really delicious, and if you don't like spicy food, they make it perfect to eat if you tell them in advance. At first, I couldn't eat it all because it was spicy, but after you made it not spicy, I went back and forth to eat 2 balls by myself. The price is good, so it's an even better house~
4. 'Osi Kalguksu' in Samseong-dong, Daejeon, a refreshing soup made from dongjuk

âOsi Kalguksuâ offers kishimoku noodles and shellfish soup from the west coast, such as Gochang in Jeonbuk. It's such a popular place that you have to get a waiting ticket when it's time to eat. The signature menu âSonkal Noodleâ adds a refreshing yet refreshing flavor by adding dongguk and cheongyang pepper to a broth made by simmering 10 ingredients such as anchovies, kelp, and radish for 12 hours or more. After maturing the dough made by hand kneading, the noodles that were pulled out by pushing them with red beans were cut into thick slices to make the most of their chewy flavor. If you place the chewy clams on top of the thick noodles and eat them in one bite, you can experience a richer texture. The kimchi on the table has a strong spiciness, so I recommend eating it little by little while eating it.
â²Location: 13, Old Shintanjin-ro, Dong-gu, Daejeon
â²Opening hours: 11:00 â 21:00 every day, closed on Mondays
â²Price: Hand knife noodles 6,000 won, water gun 12,000 won
â²Review (Shikigin K-water): Absolutely hearty! The clams are alive, and above all, the soup is really cool and refreshing. It's a relaxing feeling because it contains cheongyang pepper.
5. A bowl of gukbap with a generous sense of privacy, 'Farmer Sundae' in Busa-dong, Daejeon

âNongmin Sundaeâ has been responsible for meals for nearby residents at low prices and generous portions. When the store was expanded and moved in 2017, it was possible to eat in a more spacious and comfortable space. The signature menu is âGukbap,â which is flavored with broth made from domestic beef bones and pork head bones without mixing miscellaneous bones. The rich beef bone broth is mixed with offal such as head meat, lungs, sundae, and liver, and rice, then topped with sauce and served. You can enjoy gukbap, which has a rich flavor that stimulates the taste buds, by adding wild sesame powder and green onion sauce according to your preferences. After going through the vomiting process, the soup soaks into the rice grains, and the rice with the liver evenly and the rich entrails fill the inside.
â²Location: 138 Chungmu-ro, Jung-gu, Daejeon
â²Opening hours: 00:00 â 24:00 every day, closed on Mondays
â²Price: Gukbap 5,000 won, sundae (small) 8,000 won
â²Review (Shikigami, April 5): I personally don't like sundae, offal, head meat, or gukbap, but when I went with my parents, my parents really liked it. Is sundae so delicious, and overall the amount of food compared to the price is absolutely impossible to see these days? There are 4 people, so even if you eat to your heart's content, it's a little over 20,000 won.
