âJeongdeon Restaurantâ introduced the first jangkal noodle menu in Gangwon-do in 1994 and is known as the originator of jangkal noodles. When an order comes in, the noodles are made on the fly by repeatedly rolling and grinding the aged dough. âJangkal noodles,â which are thickly boiled with gochujang seasoning, are topped with plenty of seaweed powder and sesame powder to add flavor. The soup, which has a cool flavor unique to gochujang, caresses the mouth heavily. The combination of chewy noodles, carelessly sliced potatoes, and scrambled eggs creates a rich texture. If you like, you can enjoy it even more sharply by adding green pepper slices and black pepper.

â²Testimonial (Shikigami becausedy): This is a place I go to every time I go to Sokcho. Every time they order, they take out the dough to make noodles. So it takes a while for the food to come out. The jangkal noodle soup has a slightly gochujang tteokbokki flavor! It's thick and very, very tasty.

âShinda-shinâ is a Hamgyung-do food specialty restaurant that has been in Sokcho's Abai Village for over 50 years. You can find a variety of North Korean-style foods such as cold noodles, gukbap, and sundae. The signature menu is âAssorted Sundae,â where you can enjoy squid sundae, abai sundae, and pollack sundae all at a reasonable price. If you put pollock sundae on a sundae filled with vegetables, sticky rice, and finely minced meat, and eat it in one bite, the sweet and spicy flavors blend together, and you can experience a richer flavor. âHamgyungdo Garigubap,â which contains plenty of ingredients such as beef, bracken, bean sprouts, sauce, and egg jelly in beef bone broth, is also popular. Thanks to its refreshing and refreshing soup, it's also perfect for haejang.

â²Opening hours: 10:00 â 20:00 every day
â²Price: Assorted sundae 28,000 won, Hamgyungdo Gari Gukbap 10,000 won
â²Testimonial (Take a break from eating): The squid sundae makes me salivate again even when I think about it now! The inside of the squid is completely full, so it feels completely full when you put it in your mouth! I tried the gari gukbap menu for the first time, and my parents loved it because the soup was really refreshing! hehehe

âMountain Village Saengshimâ is operated by remodeling a family home. The large courtyard in front of the building, which has a quaint atmosphere, makes you feel like you are in an old country house. The signature menu is âsirloin,â which combines white marbling as if a snowflake falls on a bright red spot. The sirloin, which is cooked brown on a hot plate, is soft and juicy, as if it melts softly in the mouth. You can eat it with side dishes that suit your taste, such as salt, green onions, and kimchi, which further enhances the flavor of Korean beef. âMeals (rice),â which you enjoy by pouring miso broth on a grilling plate of meat and cooking bean sprouts, tofu, green onions, and rice in your own way, are also a delicacy. The savory flavor added by melting the beef oil into the stew is excellent.
â²Location: 58, Angol-ro, Ganghyeon-myeon, Yangyang-gun, Gangwon-do
â²Business hours: 11:00 â 21:00 every day, B/T 15:00 â 17:00

The signature dish and single dish, Korean beef sirloin is very soft and tasty when eaten lightly cooked. Hehe, it's not an exaggeration to say that I'm here to eat this miso stew, the stew you eat as a meal is really killing! hehe

âGugugujipâ offers a variety of dishes such as sashimi, porridge, rice bowls, and bibimbap from seasonal seafood caught at ports all over the country, such as Baekdo Port, Gajin Port, and Daejin Port. Seafood is stored in an aquarium filled with deep-sea water to keep it fresh as it was when it first arrived. The signature menu is âspecial sashimi,â which is topped with lots of ingredients such as squid, seasonal live fish sashimi, conch, octopus, sea cucumber, abalone, and flying fish roe on top of a broth filled with ice. The sweet and sour flavors of the homemade plum juice and the special broth made with domestic ingredients enhance the taste buds to the fullest. After taking half of the sashimi and vegetables and eating, it's a good idea to roll up rice or somen noodles in the leftover soup for a hearty finish.
â²Location: 341 Jungang-ro, Sokcho, Gangwon
â²Opening hours: 09:00 â 20:30 every day, closed on Wednesday (except July and August), closed when materials are exhausted

â²Testimonial (Three Stripes): I ordered a special sashimi, and I was amazed at the visuals as soon as it came out! They said they make their own broth, but it was nice that it was definitely not artificial and had a subtle rich flavor. The flavor wasn't irritating, so it was nice to be able to enjoy the flavors of the ingredients contained in the sashimi without losing their flavor. hehe

In June of this year, a new cafe âAFRAMEâ opened near Gajin Beach. Each space has a different charm, starting with the 2nd floor filled with colorful surfboards, the 3rd floor where you can see the sea at a glance beyond the transparent glass, and the rooftop, which adds an exotic sensibility with rattan props. In addition to drinks and desserts, they also sell a hearty brunch menu. âBacon and Egg Benedict,â where the sweet and sour hollandaise sauce gently wraps ingredients such as bacon, arugula, and poached eggs, and cheesecakes imported directly from the famous American cheesecake brand âThe Cheesecake Factoryâ are popular.
â²Location: 20-1, Gahang-gil, Jukwang-myeon, Goseong-gun, Gangwon-do
â²Opening hours: 09:00 â 20:00 every day, 7 days a week
â²Price: Bacon and egg Benedict 15,000 won, plain cheesecake 8,000 won
â²Review (Shikigami Food Craftsman Talent Donation): A place where I was able to feel the classics of Sun View Cafe. Personally, the space on the 3rd floor was the most beautiful, but just looking at it seemed like a healing experience. It's a big cafe, so the menu is diverse, and eating while looking at the sea was tastier and tastier. hehe
