âChinese foodâ is a food that has been with us for a long time in our lives. Although they seem to have similar flavors, each store has its own unique flavor, depending on the owner's taste and recipe. Every neighborhood has Chinese restaurants that bring back memories, not only the flavors you ate a few years ago, but also the interior. Starting with uni jajang, where finely chopped meat and vegetables soak deep between the noodles, to shorongpo, where you can enjoy the thin skin and moist juice, to miso jajang, which makes use of its deep umami flavor with a miso base! A passion that will last for 100 years! Here are 5 of the best long-established Chinese restaurants in the country.
1. The rich sauce adds umami, 'Taehwajang' in Jeongdong, Daejeon
â²Location: 78, Jungang-ro 203beon-gil, Dong-gu, Daejeon
â²Business hours: 11:00 â 21:30 every day, B/T 15:00 â 17:00, closed on the first and third Mondays
â²Price: Uni Jajang 9,000 won, Menbousha 50,000 won
â²Review (Shikigin Haeundae white towel): Enjoy jajang, which is addicted to soft shortening, and after a long time, enjoy the rustic flavor of Jajangmyeon, which has a rustic Chunjang flavor… The sweet and sour pork was crispy, so it was better to serve the sauce separately… I like Yusansul too.. Even if it's not a very high quality gin flavor or plating, it's the same taste and atmosphere I used to eat when I was a kid…
2. 'Doilcher' in Banghwa-dong, Seoul, where the moist juice bursts out the moment you bite
â²Location: 567, Gaehwadong-ro, Gangseo-gu, Seoul
â²Opening hours: 11:00 â 22:00 every day, closed on the first Monday
â²Price: Soryongpo 9,000 won, Dongpayuk 35,000 won
â²Review (Blaggy Shikigami user): It is said that the biggest hit here is the place that has been in operation since '66… Chinnopo.. Chinese food is delicious, but something more delicious than dim sum… They say they made everything themselves, even the blood, but the juiciness is so moist. I also liked the mild flavor of jajang that I couldn't feel anywhere else…
3. âDeliciousâ in Nambu-dong, Andong, where the savory flavor of miso adds a rich flavor
â²Location: 174 Daean-ro, Andong-si, Gyeongbuk
â²Opening hours: 11:00 â 20:00 every day, B/T 16:00 â 17:00, closed every second and fourth Tuesday
â²Price: Miso Jajang 6,000 won, Andong Steamed Chicken Jajang 9,000 won
â²Testimonial (Shikigin CHEEZE-): If you want to try miso jajang and steamed chicken jajang, this is it. Miso jajang has a slight miso smell, but that's not excessive. The miso I'm talking about here is a Chinese-style miso called cheomnjang. While you can feel the aroma of miso, you can also feel the richness of jajang.
4. The verdant nature of oysters that spreads as you chew, 'Movie Theater' in Imun-dong, Seoul

â²Location: 3-8, Huigyeong-dong, Dongdaemun-gu, Seoul
â²Business hours: 11:00 â 21:30 every day, B/T 15:00 â 17:00
â²Price: Oyster champon 9,000 won, sweet and sour pork 23,000 won
â²Review (Prince Shikigami of Saudi Arabia): One of the oldest and still operating movie theaters in Lee Mun-dong, the signature of this place is definitely oyster champon. Visit through the somewhat chilly weather! After all, I ordered oyster champon, and I was visiting alone, so I wanted to try a different menu, but I had no choice but to eat oyster champon. The flavor of the soup and oyster is heavy and creamy! This makes it even deeper and heavier. The advantage is that there are plenty of portions! I think this is a perfect menu for the upcoming winter season.
5. 'Forbidden City' in Haedo-dong, Pohang
â²Location: 6, Jungang-ro 41beon-gil, Nam-gu, Pohang, Gyeongbuk
â²Business hours: 11:00 â 20:00 every day, closed on the first and third Sundays, and the second and fourth Tuesdays
â²Price: Jajang 5,000 won, champon 6,000 won
â²Testimonial (Honeyscreen of the meal): I was surprised that the noodles of jajangmyeon were dark green, but it is said that when kneading the noodles, they add ground chives, a specialty of Pohang. The color was pretty, but I was even more surprised that the noodles were so plump. Jajangmyeon was delicious, but sweet and sour pork was just as good. Recognized as a restaurant in Nam-gu, Pohang.
