âRiceâ is a staple food for Koreans and is eaten with every meal. If you have one food that tastes better than the many side dishes to fill the gajisu, you can easily empty the two parts of the rice. If hot, freshly cooked rice has delicious food, I'm not envious of Jinsu Seongchan. Starting with home-style white rice, where you can feel the warmth, to yakiniku with bean sprouts that captivate the palate with its sweet and spicy sauce, to cheonggukjang, which captivates the palate with its savory flavor! Here are 5 of the best rice thief restaurants in the country where you can feel the sincerity that will continue for 100 years.
1. âDaero Restaurantâ in Jinan-dong, Hwaseong, a hearty white rice that fills the heart

âDaero Restaurantâ is a white rice specialty store that offers hearty home-style menus such as osam yakiniku, stir-fried squid, marbled miso stew, and monkfish soup. CEO Kim Kyung-sook, who makes delicious food, and her son run the store together. The signature menu is âcod gee-ri,â where ingredients such as large pieces of cod, meedeok, bean sprouts, and buttercups are boiled and eaten in a pot of rice pans. The soup, which is so cool that it relaxes the inside with just one bite, penetrates deep into the cod meat and adds moisture. Another popular menu item is âsteamed agu,â made by stir-frying plump monkfish meat and bean sprouts with a spicy sauce. The combination of thick monkfish and crunchy bean sprouts provides a rich texture.
â²Location: 12-7, Byeongjeomjungang-ro 170beon-gil, Hwaseong, Gyeonggi
â²Opening hours: 09:00 â 21:00 every day, closed on Saturdays and the third Sunday
â²Price: Daegu Jiri (small) 35,000 won, steamed agu (small) 25,000 won
â²Testimonial (Shikigin Hyungang): All of the ingredients in the chicken doritang are large and delicious. You can eat hororoku vermicelli for the first time and then eat it in earnest, but it contains more of this and that than I thought, so I'm really full. Hehe, and after eating fried rice, the boss scraped the rice crackers that were made underneath, so I ate all of them without leaving any residue.
2. 'Hanyang Bulgogik' in Jeonju Hyoja-dong, a spicy and sweet sauce that appeals to the palate

âHanyang Bulgogiâ is a place where you can find a variety of yakiniku using meat and seafood such as pork, beef, and octopus. For about 40 years, most of the ingredients, such as pork, beef, rice, Chinese cabbage, and garlic, have been used domestically to maintain the same flavor. The signature menu is âOld-fashioned pork yakiniku,â which is mixed with red sauce on a stone plate, and comes with lots of bean sprouts. When all the ingredients are cooked, vermicelli is served to add a hearty touch. Yakiniku cooked on its own with broth is strangely addictive, with its sweet and spicy seasoning that captivates the palate. âBibimbap,â where vegetables and rice are mixed with the seasoning left over after eating all the yakiniku, is also a delicacy.
â²Location: 6, Woojeon 2-gil, Wansan-gu, Jeonju, Jeonbuk
â²Business hours: 11:00 â 22:00 every day
â²Price: Old-fashioned pork yakiniku 10,000 won, Korean beef yakiniku 14,000 won, octopus yakinik/pork ribs hot pot 13,000 won, Korean beef bulnak hot pot 16,000 won
â²Review (Shikigin Charming_JS â¥): It's not a typical soy sauce yakiniku, it comes with a red sauce, but it's a food that can only be eaten in Jeonju. It's a food where pork and bean sprouts are eaten together, such as stir-fried pork, but strangely enough, my hands keep getting tired. It's delicious even if you eat it alone, and you can also eat it wrapped with rice. hehe
3. The refined taste of a Korean food master, Gyeongsan Amuseok-ri âTooanâ

'Courtyan' is a place where you can enjoy food from CEO Choi Jeong-min, a Korean master and winner of the TV program 'Korean Food Combat'. A healthy meal is created using traditional ingredients soaked directly, such as miso paste, gochujang, and soy sauce, and vegetables grown in the kitchen garden. The signature menu is âGyeongsan Jujube Tteokgalbi,â where the flavor is drawn just by looking at the shiny visuals swirling over the thick rice cake ribs. It is characterized by using jujube, a specialty of Gyeongsan, to make the most of its aromatic flavor. The meat, vegetables, and jujube are finely chopped and seasoned with a sauce containing jujube juice, so you can enjoy the unique texture and mild sweetness of jujube. The combination of moist juiciness and subtle aroma enhances the richness of flavor.
â²Location: 361 Daehak-ro, Apnyang-eup, Gyeongsan, Gyeongbuk
â²Business hours: 11:30 â 22:00 every day, B/T 15:00 â 17:00
â²Price: Gyeongsan Jujube Tteokgalbi 12,000 won, Gyeongsan Jujube Bulgogi 13,000 won
â²Testimonial (Bosugin pork): Tteokgalbi contains jujube, so it definitely has a nice scent. The thickness of the teokgalbi is just the right size to eat, so it's very chewy. Hehe, the sauce itself is delicious, so even if you just put it on white rice without anything special, it's very tasty. The yakiniku made from jujube is also delicious, and there are various Korean food menus such as grilled mackerel, so it's a perfect place to eat out with parents.
4. 'Sammijeong' in Wonmi-dong, Bucheon, a rich flavor made using traditional methods

âSammijeongâ is a place that has been specializing in soy dishes for the third generation since 1968 until now. Using domestic soybeans grown in Yangpyeong, they make a variety of dishes, such as bean noodles, soybean paste, and beef miso. The signature menu is âCheonggukjang,â which boasts a deep flavor using traditional meju made using traditional methods. At the same time that they appear while boiling in an earthenware pot, the savory flavors that fill the table are appetizing. The soybean particles that live just as they are in the thick, thick soup add an even richer aroma. At first, you can enjoy the natural flavor of cheonggukjang, then put rice, herbs, kimchi, and cheonggukjang in a large bowl and enjoy it in a bibimbap style.
â²Location: 3 Bucheon-ro 130beon-gil, Bucheon, Gyeonggi
â²Opening hours: 09:00 â 22:00 every day, Sunday 11:00 â 15:00, visit after phone call
â²Price: Cheonggukjang 7,000 won, Kongbushi 7,000 won
â²Testimonial (2nd year student at the Department of Architecture): Cheonggukjang contains plenty of tofu and pumpkin, so if you eat it with rice, you'll be completely full. The soup was rich, but it wasn't thick, and I liked the refreshing aftertaste, and the bitter flavor unique to cheonggukjang was just right, so even first-time eaters can eat it without much reluctance. There is also a single item of cheonggukjang, and the set menu that can be eaten with various menus is also great when you go out with someone else.
5. 'Willow Restaurant' in Seongdang-dong, Daegu, the original flavor that has been cooked for half a century

âWillow Restaurantâ has remained in place since 1967 and is known for its cod offal hot pot. Only fresh ingredients such as offal and daikon from a nearby slaughterhouse are used. The signature menu, âFantastic Taste,â is a cool soup where offal, daikon, and beef yakiniku are eaten on a large stone plate with vegetables. As it boils, the flavor of the ingredients melts into the soup and the rich soup is completed. The rich soup that seems to stick to the tongue blends harmoniously with the chewy offal, the savory flavor that fills the mouth, and the soft yakiniku. In addition, there are menus where you can enjoy each part, such as offal hot pot, daichang hot pot, and yakiniku hot pot, so you can enjoy it according to your taste.
â²Location: 8, Duryugongwon-ro 28-gil, Dalseo-gu, Daegu
â²Business hours: 12:00 â 22:00 every day
â²Price: Fantastic taste 17,000 won, offal hot pot 17,000 won
â²Testimonial (Shikigami Chelba): I don't know how many times I've visited. The offal hot pot is really delicious. The more you chew offal, the more savory it gets. If you eat a bowl of rice at the beginning and then eat all the offal, be sure to eat ramen sari as an addition. And as a finishing touch, even if you order just one fried rice, it's enough because the amount is large.
