korean food / seoul / 100 years of pride, 5 representative food restaurants by region – 2409

Like landmarks such as “N Seoul Tower” in Seoul, “Jeondong Cathedral” in Jeonju, and “Hand of Win-Win” in Pohang, there are foods representing each region in Paldo across the country. The surrounding natural environment and various complex elements are incorporated into the food to show the characteristics of the region. From Gangneung sundubu made in an authentic cauldron, Chuncheon dak-galbi mixed with plump chicken and addictive condiments, and Uijeongbu Budae Jjigae flavored with rich sausages and special broth! Here are 5 of the best food restaurants representing each region that will continue to be proud of for 100 years.

“Chodang Grandma Sundubu” starts a daily routine early in the morning by soaking beans and grinding them to make soybeans. For the third generation, the traditional method of preparing tofu has been preserved by stirring soybean water simmered hundreds of times in a cauldron. Tofu made using 100% domestic soybeans and seawater from the East Sea as soy sauce has a savory flavor and mild texture. The signature menu, “Sundubu White Rice,” is neatly decorated with a mix of sundubu, biji jjjigae, miso jjjigae, and side dishes in a hot soup. Sundubu, which is steaming with seaweed, has a smooth texture and a savory flavor that fills the mouth. “Big Bok Sundubu,” which was developed in-house using the local specialty chabuku (silk dumpling), is also popular. The fresh and sharp flavor of jelly and clams relaxes the stomach.

“Chuncheon Log House Dak-galbi” is the first teppan dak-galbi specialty store that opened in Dakgalbi Alley in Sinbuk-eup, Chuncheon. It is so popular that an average of 2,000 to 3,000 customers come from all over the country every day on weekends. The signature menu is “dak-galbi,” where you can enjoy stir-frying cabbage, sesame leaves, green onions, sweet potatoes, and well-prepared chicken on a round griddle with special condiments. The deep flavor sauce made by adding soju, garlic, ginger, and onion juice to the gochujang enhances the rich flavor. The moist flesh of chicken, which combines the subtle sweetness of the vegetables as they are cooked and the spicy and sweet seasoning, is attractive. “Fried rice,” which is eaten by adding rice and seaweed powder to the seasoning left over from eating meat, is also a must-try delicacy.

▲Opening hours: 10:30 — 21:30 every day, 7 days a week

▲Price: Dak-galbi (250g) 11,000 won, makguksu 7,000 won

▲Review (Shikishin Mongi): I personally think Chuncheon Dak-galbi is the most delicious place. It has a basic weight, but it's so delicious that you won't regret it even if you wait to eat it. It's up to the 3rd floor of the annex, so there's almost no need to worry about seating, and food can be set up quickly. It's delicious and spicy. The kimchi that comes with it is especially delicious.



3. “Oden Restaurant” in Uijeongbu-dong, Uijeongbu, where the flavors of the ingredients come together

“Oden Restaurant,” which has a history of around 60 years in Uijeongbu Budae Jjigae Street, was the first place to introduce Budae Jjigae in Korea. At the beginning of the business, it started as a pocha selling kamaboko, but while regular customers who worked in the US military unit near the restaurant made and sold stir-fries with ham, sausage, and bacon brought in, the current Budae Jjigae was born by adding kimchi and soy sauce to the traditional stir-fry ingredients. The signature menu, “Budae Jjigae,” is made by piling ham, sausage, green onions, tofu, vermicelli, minchi, and kimchi on a steamed bowl, then pouring transparent broth and cooking it yourself. As the broth boils, the flavors of the various ingredients melt into the soup, creating a heavy yet deep flavor. You can also enjoy it even more by adding sari such as udon, cheese, homemade rice, and potato dumplings.

▲Location: 7, Hoguk-ro 1309beon-gil, Uijeongbu, Gyeonggi

▲Opening hours: 08:00 — 21:30 every day, 7 days a week

▲Price: Budae Jjigae 9,000 won per serving, 25,000 won for a 2-person limited set

▲Testimonial (Buy Shikugin Odi): The soup is really refreshing, so it's delicious. Each ingredient is delicious, and when you go to eat Budae Jjigae, they only add a little bit of minchi, but the amount here is large and the meat particles are large, so it's chewy. Hehe, it was delicious, so I just ate two cups of rice. hehe

4. A refreshing soup that relaxes the inside, 'Hadong Jaechap Guk' in Samnak-dong, Busan

“Hadong Jae Chop Guk” has become a local gourmet restaurant, offering a variety of dishes such as soup, sashimi, and rice bowls using fish paste collected from Seomjin River. The freshest fish paste of the day is soaked in salt water, soaked several times, and then applied only to the part that is easy to eat to make food. The signature menu is “Saecap soup,” which has a hearty meal with ingredients such as simmered mackerel, miso soup, kimchi, and bibimbap. Bibimbap, which is enjoyed by grilling rice on bean sprouts seasoned with gochujang, has an even richer texture if you add fish paste eggs from the soup. Saichu-gak soup, which is made with careful concern for jajichun, stands out for its combination of chewy fish paste and refreshing soup.

▲Opening hours: 04:00 — 21:30 every day

▲Price: Brochup soup 7,000 won, small brochure (small) 10,000 won

▲Review (Shikigami Ziko SWAG): I went on a trip to Busan and had a drink and was recommended by a friend to visit! Once all of the fish paste is covered, it's easy to eat, and the moment you take just one bite of the soup, you feel refreshed as you wake up. Also, it's so delicious that you can eat an entire bowl of rice just as a side dish. hehe

5. 'Korean-Japanese restaurant' in Sapgyo-eup, Yesan, captures the deep flavor of Korean beef

The “Korean-Japanese Restaurant” is an eye-catching “Korean-Japanese restaurant” with two large cauldrons located next to the entrance of the store. The signature menu, “Gukbap,” is a broth made by carefully curing beef in a cauldron for 24 hours with meat and entrails mixed with seasoning, simmered once more, and served to customers. The broth, which has a reddish appearance, stands out for its cool yet refreshing aftertaste. Gukbap that comes out of the steaming process has a uniform flavor because the broth soaks between the grains of rice. The head meat, beef tongue, skin, and sheep contained in the gukbap use only Korean cow meat to add a rich flavor without any impurities, making the most of the rich flavor. Note that gukbap is usually served with a red sauce, but you can choose clear gukbap or taro gukbap according to your preferences.

▲Location: 60, Duri 2-gil, Sapgyo-eup, Yesan-gun, Chungcheongnam-do

▲Opening hours: 09:00 — 19:00 every day, closed on Mondays other than market days

▲Price: Gukbap 9,000 won, beef 20,000 won

▲Testimonial (dysphoria after eating): I went there because it was also a place recommended by Dr. Baek, but it's no joke. The gukbap is so full of contents that every time you lift a real spoon, it comes with meat and entrails. Hahahaha, the soup looks really rich, but it's a reverse charm that's not heavy! The soup, rice, and meat were all over the place, and the soup was delicious, so I even added noodles, and I was completely full. hehe
