âHyochang Parkâ was designated a nationally designated cultural property as Historic Site No. 330 in 1989. It is a place where the souls of patriotic people who fought hard for the independence of their country, such as Dr. Ahn Jung-geun, Dr. Baek Beom Kim Gu, Dr. Lee Bong-chang, Dr. Yoon Bong-gil, and Dr. Baek Jeong-gi, lay dormant. It is a space where you can explore places with deep historical significance, such as the Baekbeom Kimgu Memorial Hall where you can look into the life and thoughts of Baek Beom Kim Gu, Hyochang Stadium, which is listed as a future heritage site in Seoul, and the graveyard of seven independence activists. On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the Provisional Municipal Government of the Republic of Korea, Hyochang is adding significant value by promoting the Hyochang Independence 100th Anniversary Park plan.

âUngeumjipâ is a place where you can enjoy a course meal with snacks in omakase format. The menu structure changes every month and is priced between 30,000 and 40,000 won depending on the ingredients used. The âA courseâ in March starts with savory cauliflower, steamed brisket, clam soup, oil pasta, and berry berry sherbet are prepared in that order. There are about 110 types of alcoholic beverages, including traditional sake, beer, wine, whiskey, and sake, and are loved by lovers. There is also an âovertimeâ where you can enjoy simple snacks and whiskey or beer for those who don't want to finish with the course.

â²Location: 1F, 3 Saechang-ro 35-gil, Yongsan-gu, Seoul
â²Business hours: Weekdays 17:00 â 22:00, weekends 14:00 â 22:00
â²Price: Course A 30,000 won, overtime 10,000 won
â²Testimonial (Shikigin Red High Heels): When I did it alone, I couldn't have more than 4 players per team lol, the reservation system opens on Naver every 1 day and 16 days, and I went there with success this time. Kaisendon is full of bluefin tuna and salmon, making it feel fresh! The ingredients were really fresh, and there were so many alcoholic beverages that were hard to taste anywhere else.
2. 'Nam Yeong-don' in Namyeong-dong, the scent of heavy fire

âNam Yeong-donâ is a trade name named after the town, and has maintained the highest quality of meat through a supplier that has been trading steadily for 10 years. The meat prepared by hand at the store is placed on charcoal from Gangwon Province and grilled so that the staff can eat it. The meat is cooked at a close distance, as if it were in contact with hot charcoal to add a rich aroma of fire. The meat, which bursts with moist juice as soon as you chew, is an excellent combination of the chewy flesh and the mellow flavor of the meat. It's also fun to eat side dishes such as raw wasabi, pickles, kimchi, and salted fish to suit your taste. âKimchi Jjigae,â a service made by cooking leftover meat and ripe kimchi, is also a delicacy. The deep-cooked kimchi and the refreshing soup blend harmoniously while capturing the fatty flavor of the meat.
â²Location: 17 Hangang-daero 80-gil, Yongsan-gu, Seoul
â²Business hours: 16:00 â 22:00 on weekdays, 15:00 â 22:00 on weekends
â²Price: Chewy pork ribs 16,000 won, crunchy pork ribs 18,000 won
â²Testimonial (Shikigami Margaret): The waits seem to have decreased slightly due to the recent expansion of the store, but the popularity remains the same. The meat is delicious, but there are many types of kimchi here, and it's really delicious. In particular, oyster kimchi is so magical that you can eat it at an extra cost! If you wrap freshly grilled meat in kimchi and eat it, it will keep getting in.
3. 'Evergreen Tree' in Cheongpa-dong 2-ga, intoxicated by the nostalgic sensibility of the past

âEvergreen treesâ have a quaint feel all over the store, including the signs, menu boards, wallpaper, and exterior. It looks like a long-established store that has stayed in place for a long time, but it is a yakiniku restaurant that recreates a retro atmosphere with the owner's sense. The signature menu is âHwangjisal,â which draws attention with its dainty shape that comes out curled up in a circle. It is a part that removes unnecessary fat from pork fat to reduce the flavor felt and maximize the chewy texture. Grilled pork belly sprinkled with black pepper and green tea powder is attractive for its savory flavor that spreads as you chew it without any impurities. The method of grilling side dishes such as bracken, white kimchi, and bean sprouts in the oil that comes out as the meat is cooked is also popular.
â²Location: 4 Cheongpa-ro 51-gil, Yongsan-gu, Seoul
â²Business hours: 17:00 â 02:00 every day
â²Price: Hwangji pork ribs 18,000 won, pepper pork ribs 13,000 won
â²Testimonial (Shikugin Bung Boong): Even the menu explanation on the wall seemed to have been properly conceptualized. LOL, the menu is also more unique than a regular yakiniku restaurant. The visuals are also unique, such as the chewy texture of the chewy texture, and the black pepper rice with the intensity of pepper, which satisfies both the eyes and the mouth. Leaf Solute, which is mixed with maitake root and brush's eye, also goes well with meat, so I think it would be a good idea to try it out.
4. Wonhyoro 1-ga's âHanamokoshi,â which recreates local flavors

â²Location: 50-1, Baekbeom-ro 87-gil, Yongsan-gu, Seoul
â²Business hours: 12:00 â 21:00 every day, B/T (except Sunday) 14:00 â 18:00, Sunday 12:00 â 15:00, closed on Tuesdays
â²Price: Tori-soba 10,000 won, majemen 10,000 won
â²Review (Shikigin Kakamashi Zeng): It's a ramen shop with passion hidden in the alley. I'm addicted to chicken-based ramen these days, and I'm looking all over the place to eat it, but this one is steamed! As soon as you take a bite of the immaculate soup, the rich flavor spreads out! The thin homemade noodles are also very chewy, and the topping of chicken breast goes well beyond that of chicken breast. I think it would be a good idea to add chashu, bamboo shoots, and eggs when you're hungry.
5. A great sushi bar to enjoy a glass of wine, 'Chestnut Pizzaijang' in Namyeong-dong

âNight Pizangâ catches the eye of passers-by with its colorful signboard. The interior, decorated with red sofas, goldfish fishing tanks, and colorful wallpaper, is illuminated with dim lighting, creating a retro sensibility. The signature menu is âchestnut pijang sushi,â which consists of many layers of aged salmon, honmaguro belly, and salmon eggs on top of a kimzushi filled with cucumber and burdock root. Sashimi cut into cubes can be eaten with sushi or wrapped in the seaweed that comes with it. The savory flavors unique to salmon and bluefin tuna are added to the light sushi, and it boasts a heavy flavor. In addition, the menu lineup that emphasizes the freshness of seafood, such as futo maki, mini sashimi, and ceviche, stands out.
â²Location: B1F, 15 Hangang-daero 80-gil, Yongsan-gu, Seoul
â²Opening hours: 17:00 â 02:00 every day, closed on Sundays
â²Price: Chestnut pijang sushi 29,000 won, chestnut pijang futomaki 18,000 won
â²Review (Pork in front of Suwon City Hall): I think this is probably the hottest restaurant in this area these days. Every step down from the entrance is full of hip vibes. The colorful visuals of Bampijang sushi are so pretty, and the taste is amazing. The fish is delicious because it uses good quality parts, but it melts softly. Like the concept of a sushi wine bar, there are plenty of wines, so it's great to eat together!
