korean food / seoul / Synonymous with K-food! 5 Best Kimchi Restaurants – 2504

When talking about Korea's representative food, “kimchi” comes to mind first. It shows the ethnic side of kimchi by showcasing not only well-known ingredients, but also unique kimchi menus such as eggplant, Japanese mustard spinach, and sweet potato stalks. It's delicious even if you put a kimchi on white rice, but there are foods that enhance the flavor of kimchi with a variety of recipes. From kimchi stew made with sliced pork and highland kimchi to gimbap, which has an attractive refreshing flavor of jelly, and kimchi fried rice made by finely chopping ripe kimchi and stir-frying it with rice! Here are 5 of the best kimchi restaurants synonymous with K-food.

1. 'Kimbuk Sunken Nambi House' in Sinsa-dong, Seoul, filled with the heavy flavor of pork

“Kimbuk Sunken Nambi House” is full of pot lids with celebrity signatures written on them. The signature menu “Pork Kimchi Jjigae” is served in beef bone broth with ingredients such as shoulder meat, tofu, and green onions, and highland kimchi supplied from Jeolla-do simmered lamb in a pot. The soup, which combines softly torn kimchi and thickly sliced pork neck, adds richness, is easy to eat on rice.

“Seomjip” is loved by nearby office workers because of the hearty side dishes that come out like home-cooked meals. The signature menu is “steamed pork kimchi,” where pork cut into large pieces is thoroughly steamed with deliciously ripe jelly. If you roll kimchi on softly cooked meat and eat it in one bite, the umami will come out even more. In addition, various meal menus such as crab, stew, and spicy soup are also available.

“Heart Time” is a Japanese-style restaurant located in the underground shopping district of Banpo. The interior and exterior of the restaurant are decorated in a 90s style and have a nostalgic atmosphere. The signature menu, “Kimchi Fried Rice,” uses long rice with an unnami-like flavor, and stands out for its smooth texture. Fried rice, which has a subtle margarine flavor that enhances the taste buds, has an addictive flavor because the seasoning is deeply soaked between the grains of rice.

▲Testimonial (Shikigami: Cullet Fondue ♡): Every food and interior accessory brings back memories of the past. If you eat the yolk of the fried egg on top of the kimchi fried rice, the savory flavor comes out even more, making it even more delicious! After the meal, give them a soda as a dessert.

4. The fresh flavor of jelly, 'Naan' in Hapjeong-dong, Seoul

“Nan” is a place where you can enjoy a limited meal that changes daily along with a packed meal such as gimbap and ramen. The signature menu is “Gimbap with jelly,” made by rolling the rice in a circle on a brightly washed jelly paper and then sprinkling sesame oil and sesame seeds on it to finish. Gimbap, which is appetizing with the rich flavor of sesame oil, is an excellent combination of the crunchy texture of the jelly and the light yet sweet rice.

“Hanmaru” offers a variety of dishes using high quality meat, such as pork from Jeju and 1++ grade Korean beef. The signature menu, “Kimchi Bossam Hot Pot,” is leek and pork belly wrapped in Chinese cabbage leaves and cooked with ingredients such as mushrooms, tofu, bok choy, and deep-fried pork. The combination of the sweetness of Chinese cabbage and pork with the aroma of chives added to it, and kimchi broth, which boasts a refreshing flavor, is fascinating.
