korean food / seoul / Time to focus entirely on myself, 5 places to eat hombap – 2506

The increase in single-person households and the spread of COVID-19 are changing our daily lives everywhere. In particular, “honbap,” where many people avoid eating together and eat alone, has become a new trend in eating out. Unlike honbap in the past, which was simple and quick to eat, recently the number of people leisurely enjoying the menu they wanted by themselves has increased, and the number of restaurants catering to honbap people is increasing. Starting with ramen made from pork bones and beef bones, grilled mackerel that has been gently grilled over charcoal with a fine side dish and a grilled fish meal that you can enjoy, and pasta made from homemade raw noodles made directly at the store! Here are 5 of the best honbap restaurants where you can focus on your meal.

1. “Rairaiken” at the entrance of Seoul National University, a broth that wraps tightly around the tongue

“Rairiken” has the optimal flavor by varying the thickness of the noodles and cooking time depending on the type of broth and toppings used in the ramen. The signature menu, “Tonkotsu Ramen,” added flavor from beef bones and pork skulls to the broth over a long period of time with a special soy sauce. The rich broth seeps through the thin noodles and enhances the rich flavor. If you feel slightly greasy, it's a good idea to clean your mouth with fresh kimchi.

“Brown Court” was newly renovated and opened from a “stall” that specialized in curry. The cozy yet old-fashioned interior adds sensibility. The signature menu “Hi-RICE” catches the eye with a plate of scrambled eggs and three meatballs placed between rice and high rice. High rice, which has a heavy yet subtle acidity, envelops all the ingredients and adds a rich flavor.

▲Testimonial (Refreshing food): The bowl that comes out is so beautiful that a certified shot is essential before eating! High rice is topped with meatballs, and curry is topped with croquettes, but you can also eat it by adding toppings such as fried shrimp or hot spring eggs.
