âYeosuâ is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Korea, with many attractions such as Aqua Planet, Romantic Pocha, and Marine Cable Car. One of the thrills of traveling is seeing the different charms of the sea during the day, which is bathed in sunshine, and the night sea, which is surrounded by colorful lights and adds sensibility. As pleasing to the eye, Yeosu has plenty of food that will captivate our palates. Starting with fresh seasonal sashimi, seodaegang, which has a sweet and sour sauce that enhances the palate, to chicken yukhoe that is hard to taste anywhere else! Here are the 5 best restaurants in Yeosu recommended by a native with a 0% chance of failure.

A âfamous sashimi shopâ that has gone viral as a local restaurant where you can enjoy natural sashimi such as juldashi, dagumbari, neungseonggo, and dodari, and a hearty meal. For over 30 years, they have kept up the fresh sashimi that have been brought in on the same day and have kept a keen eye on the various seafood collected by Haenyeo, and the regulars have continued steadily. The signature menu is âred snapper,â which is plump and plump and has a rich texture. The red snapper sashimi, which is cut lengthwise along the texture, has a chewy flesh and a savory flavor that spreads throughout the mouth as you chew it. This season, âhamo,â where you can enjoy freshly prepared eel lightly in a special broth and enjoy it like shabu-shabu, is also popular. You can experience a variety of textures and flavors by adding vegetables, garlic, and sauce to the lettuce of the mackerel, which has been added to the moisture of the broth.

â²Testimonial (One more drink and two more drinks): Oegatjip is in Yeosu, so it's a place I definitely go to every time I go on vacation. They're not all the same sashimi, not to mention the real sashimi, and the table set up makes it seem like you know what it means to have a curved leg. I think I'll be full even if I just eat cold food. Hahahahahaha I ate red snapper when I went this time, but I should say that the sashimi was really sweet… hehe, I had hansabari with soju.

âCentral Restaurantâ is full of customers looking for bean noodles when the weather is hot. They sell eel soup and grilled eel, but only bean noodles are sold in the summer. The signature menu, âKongguksu,â is served with white noodles and large ice floats on immaculate soybeans without any garnish. It is characterized by using noodles picked directly from the store to make the most of its chewy texture. The thick soybean paste seeps through the plump noodles and fills the mouth with a savory flavor. At first, you can enjoy the natural aroma and then add an appropriate amount of sugar on the table to add a richer flavor.
â²Location: 3-1 Gyodongnam 1-gil, Yeosu, Jeollanam-do
â²Business hours: 11:00 â 20:00 every day
â²Price: Bean noodles 7,500 won
â²Testimonial (Tangja-tang for a meal): Even though I don't really like bean noodles, the ones here are really delicious, so I just ate a bowl. The noodles are thick like chewy noodles or udon, but it's a combination of rich soybeans and honey. Hehe, and kimchi comes out, and yo kimchi is a kick point, so it's delicious when wrapped in soybean noodles.

âAnseong Restaurantâ opens early in the morning and is a great place to have breakfast. Using Korean beef, they offer a variety of menus such as yukjeon, yukhoe, rib soup, gukbap, and steamed ribs. The signature menu, âKorean Beef Tteokgalbi,â stimulates appetite with its shiny visuals. Starting with the sweet and spicy flavor, you can enjoy the perfect trifecta of moist juiciness and soft, crunchy texture. If you order a meal, you can enjoy a more hearty meal with freshly cooked mini cauldron rice. I also like âDolsangat Shiregi Soup,â which has a refreshing yet deep soup flavor using lard, a specialty of Yeosu.

â²Opening hours: 05:20 â 21:00 every day, closing when materials are exhausted

My friend I went with liked meat, so I ordered Tteokgalbi, but since the ribs were made from Korean beef, they were so soft and melts in the mouth. hehe

âCheonghae Restaurantâ is a place where you can find Seodaegae, known as a delicacy of Yeosu food trips. The signature menu is âSeodae-hoe,â which is made by mixing long slices of sardines and radish mixed with a red sauce. Seodae-hoe, which boasts delicious visuals, is seasoned with homemade makgeolli vinegar, cho-gochujang, and plum juice, and you can enjoy a balanced spicy and sour taste. The seasoning is deeply infused and the rich flavor is combined with the crunchy radish, which has added umami. After eating about half of Seodae-hae, you can put lettuce and seaweed powder on top of the rice and grate it like a sashimi bowl.

I was told not to cut the sashimi, but it was nice that it definitely had a chewy flavor. I also ordered an eel soup, and I liked the combination of the sour Seodae Corridor and the savory eel soup when I saw the soup that had so much eel.

âGubong Sanjangâ is a local chicken course specialty store located near Gubongsan Mountain. It is well known as a gourmet restaurant for hikers and local residents. The signature menu is the âLocal Chicken Course Meal,â which offers two types of dishes using free-range chicken. The first dish on the course is âgochujang stir-fried chicken,â which is eaten by simmering local chicken, sweet potatoes, mochi, chicken feet, chicken entrails, and vegetables in a spicy gochujang sauce. It's fun to choose and eat a variety of ingredients that are mixed with sharp condiments according to your preferences. Second, âChicken mizutaki,â which is boiled thoroughly with ginseng, jujube, and mung beans, comes out. The combination of the chewy texture unique to local chicken and the light flavor is excellent.

â²Opening hours: 11:00 â 22:00 every day, closed every second and fourth Tuesday
â²Price: Free-range chicken course meal 63,000 won, chicken soup 1,000 won
â²Testimonial (Shikigin Farinalda): It's always a place I go to eat with my family in the summer. Chicken sashimi used to be sold, but I don't think they sell it now! First of all, I used local chicken, so mizutaki, stir-fried chicken, and the chicken were big and easy to eat. In particular, mizutaki has plenty of mung beans on top, and if you eat it in one bite with chicken, it's JMT!
