korean food / seoul / A head-to-head match against the cold wave! 5 Best Iyangchi Cold Restaurants – 2531

Unlike last year's winter, which passed without knowing how cold it was, this year's bitter cold is raging with the biggest cold waves and heavy snowfall of all time. One of the new ways of wintering is to compete with cool food in cold weather, such as “Lee Yeol Fever,” which overcomes the heat with hot food. Starting with the owner's heartwarming soba, to chewy gelato, which is best eaten in winter, to Korean-style kimchi wrapped rice with an excellent refreshing soup flavor! A head-to-head battle against the cold wave! Here are 5 of the best cold places to eat.

1. 'Mapo Instant Rice Village' in Hapjeong-dong, where the savory flavor of buckwheat spreads

“Mapo Instant Soba Village” sells various dishes such as soba, makguksu, and bean noodles using soba noodles. The signature menu is “buckwheat cold soba,” which comes with soba noodles topped with seaweed powder and tsuyu broth. You can mix the seasoning with green onions, grated radish, and wasabi in the broth, then soak the noodles thoroughly before eating. The savory flavor of the noodles blends with the rich broth to fill the mouth with a feeling of freshness.

â–²Price: Cold buckwheat soba 7,000 won, buckwheat bibimbap makguksu 7,000 won

â–²Testimonial (Are you eating rice cake?): If you order according to the number of people, the sari is an all-you-can-eat refill, but the amount is so large that one bowl is enough. The cold soba noodles had a good soba flavor, and the broth was sweet and salty, so the seasoning was just right.

2. Enjoy the taste of North Korea in Seoul, 'North Korean dumpling' in Mugyo-dong

“North Korean gyoza” showcases the local food that the owner from North Korea enjoyed eating in his hometown. The signature menu is “kimchi wrapped rice,” which is made by mixing kimchi broth with beef bone that has been orphaned for 3 days to make the most of the rich flavor of the soup. The refreshing yet sharp soup comes up first, then slowly comes up, and the savory aroma of sesame oil blends harmoniously. I also like the noodle menu that contains chewy noodles instead of rice.

â–²Location: 17-13, Mugyo-ro, Jung-gu, Seoul

â–²Opening hours: 09:00 – 21:00 every day

â–²Price: Kimchi wrapped rice 9,000 won Kimchi rolled noodles 9,000 won

▲Review (Mary Jane the god of food ♡): The hanok has been renovated and has a cozy atmosphere. If you mix the garnish and the rice underneath and taste it, the crunchy texture of the vegetables makes it fun to chew. The soup is refreshing, so it's perfect for relaxation the day after drinking.

3. 'Gelato Tuyu' in Seongsu-dong, captures Korean flavors

“Gelato to You” aims to capture healthy flavors using seasonal fruits and natural ingredients that have received HACCP certification. Gelato, made by grinding whole ingredients without using artificial colors, contains a rich blend of the natural flavors and aromas of each ingredient. In particular, the menu structure made with domestic agricultural specialties as the main ingredients, such as Buyeo odi, Gochang pufferfish, Icheon brown rice, and Yeongam figs, stands out.

â–²Business hours: 11:00 – 23:00 every day

â–²Price: 3,800 won for 1 flavor, 5,800 won for 2 flavors

â–²Testimonial (I'm drowsy): I tried rice, which can be called a gelato classic. The texture melts softly and the rice inside is chewy, so the texture is fun. If you have any questions or concerns about flavors, you can use the tasting service~~

4. A 'rye field' in Changcheon-dong that melts comfortably

“Rye Field” is an attractive shaved ice specialty store with milk ice reminiscent of white snow. The signature menu, “Milk Shaved Ice,” comes with milk ice cream, red bean paste, and mochi separately, so it's fun to mix and eat them according to your taste. The contrasting texture of milk ice, which disappears smoothly the moment you put it in your mouth, and the granulated red bean paste form a strange harmony. Green tea, shaved ice made with fruit, etc. are also available.

â–²Location: 43 Sinchonyeok-ro, Seodaemun-gu, Seoul

â–²Business hours: 12:00 – 22:00 every day

â–²Price: Milk shaved ice 6,500 won, green tea shaved ice 6,900 won

â–²Review (Isabella Shikigami): Ice cream collection is a bit expensive these days, but I am satisfied with the quantity, taste, and price. Milk shaved ice has a sweet flavor in the milk ice itself, so it's delicious even if you just eat it ice. The red bean paste wasn't very sweet, so I didn't bite.

5. Fresh, fresh 'Sokcho Port boat' in Seocho-dong

“Sokcho Port Boatbae” only sells fresh seafood sent directly from Sokcho. The signature menu is “mackerel sashimi,” which is based on fresh fruit and makes the most of its sweet and sour flavors. The broth made with ice floats contains sekoshi, sea cucumber, sea bream, goldfish, and cabbage. It contains plenty of seafood and vegetables, such as carrots, and you can enjoy a rich texture. It's a good idea to take half of the ingredients and then roll up the noodles for a hearty finish.

â–²Testimonial (Shikigin Honey Seongdae): It's a place I often go to for dinners, but the sashimi is really delicious. The sashimi contains plenty of seafood, so it's great to eat as a snack! Next time I'll try another dish~~
