âSeongsu-dongâ was reborn as a foodie paradise from a factory area through a handmade street. It is an emerging rural village where many celebrities and entertainers live, and one of the trend-setting areas in Seoul. From Ttukseom Station to Yeonmujang-gil that passes through Seongsu Station, Seoul Forest, and Ttukseom Hangang Park, hip spaces are constantly popping up all over Seongsu-dong. In the early days, factories and warehouses were renovated, and cafes with unique interiors became popular, and people continued to visit. Since then, Seongsu-dong has naturally become a hot spot in Seoul, with unique restaurants and famous chefs entering the market.
Recently, the number of complex cultural spaces in Seongsu-dong has increased, adding things to enjoy. Buildings that have not been visited for a long time, such as warehouses, family homes, mills, and dyeing factories, are reborn as new spaces by bringing emotion. It attracts people by offering a variety of attractions before and after meals, such as fashion shows, performances, brand launch shows, and pop-up stores.

âXiong Maoâ is the second place of âLe Fricke,â famous for its homemade chicken burger. You can find Asian cuisine with exotic flavors with a variety of spices. The signature menu, âOngbak Chicken Rice Bowl,â is pleasing to the eye with the colorful colors of the egg, mint leaves, and chicken placed on top of the rice. Chicken, salted and deep-fried in Thai style, is crispy and juicy at the same time. Chicken, which makes use of its sweet and sour flavor with a slow mom sauce, is wrapped in a cozy egg, and goes well together. The green mint leaves add fragrance and at the same time act as licorice, which cleans up the aftertaste.
â²Location: 16, Ttukseom-ro 9-gil, Seongdong-gu, Seoul
â²Opening hours: 11:30 â 21:00 every day, B/T 15:00 â 17:30, closed on Mondays
â²Price: Ongbak chicken bowl 10,800 won, Mararagu rice bowl 9,800 won
â²Testimonial (Shikigin Daljoa): The structure is simple, with a rice bowl and a few side dishes. When I ordered a meal, I was given a warm wet towel, which made me feel good. What I ate on this day was Ongbak Chicken Rice Bowl, which has a Thai feel from the name! When I put ingredients such as chicken, eggs, mint, and cabbage on top of the rice and ate it in one bite, it had a rich texture and flavor, so I scraped it all the way to the end.

âJinjaku Diningâ presents fusion food that reinterprets Japanese food in various ways. The store, which has been converted into a warehouse, has a high ceiling, making it feel cool and open. The signature menu is âfutomaki,â made by putting rice on top of seaweed and rolling it up with 7 ingredients including anago, cucumber, tuna, fried shrimp, and omelette. We recommend eating large futomaki by putting it in one bite without cutting it. Ingredients such as crunchy vegetables, faintly sweet fish, and crispy tempura come together to provide a rich cuisine. The âKorean beef daechang rice bowl,â which is cooked with a sweet and spicy sauce, pickled in onions and grated with egg yolk, is also popular. The sour onion relieves the greasy flavor of daichang, so you can eat it all the way through without getting bitten.
â²Location: 10, Wangsimni-ro 14na-gil, Seongdong-gu, Seoul
â²Business hours: 11:30 â 22:00 every day, B/T (weekdays) 15:00 â 17:00
â²Price: Futomaki 15,900 won, Korean beef rice bowl 13,900 won
â²Testimonial (Shikigami Yogi): I've seen a lot of them, but they said they went to Eulji-ji. The Seongsu store is much larger, and the atmosphere is more lively because the sunlight comes in through the window on the ceiling. Each and every one of the futomaki was really fresh, so I enjoyed eating it!

âMokukinâ is a small Western-style restaurant run by chefs from the hotel. The combination of the wall with posters and pictures of food and cute interior accessories creates an emotional atmosphere. Looking at the colorful tableware makes the meal even more enjoyable. The signature menu, âHamburg steak (hamburg) steak,â is served with a hamburger steak and fried egg on top of rice and served with salad, bacon, green beans, and hash brown. Finely minced meat is seasoned in an authentic way and grilled on a grill, and has a soft texture to the inside. You can also add a savory flavor by pounding the egg yolk on top of the hamburger steak.
â²Location: 34 Wangsimni-ro 2-gil, Seongdong-gu, Seoul
â²Opening hours: 11:30 â 21:00 every day
â²Price: Hamburg steak (hake) steak 11,000 won, spicy bisque rose pasta 19,000 won

The hamburger steak was served not only with meat, but also with salad and green beans, making it even more hearty. They said they also made their own sauce, and the combination of just the right amount of sweetness and acidity went well together.

The combination of the light dough and toppings is great. After eating, I was bothered to go anywhere else, but there was a wine bar on top, so I went straight to the 2nd stop. hehe
5. Full of exotic flavors and sensibility! 'Cafeteria Laluna' in Seongsu-dong

âCafeteria La Lunaâ is the second brand of the Hwadok pizza specialty store âDarobeâ. The white background, the red signboard, the terrace reminiscent of an open-air cafe, and the interior with luxurious wooden furniture make you feel like you have come to Europe. They mainly sell âpincho,â a food from the Basque region of Spain, where various ingredients are placed on a baguette and fixed with a pin. The signature menu, âSHRIMP,â is a thick baguette filled with piquillo peppers, shrimp, sour cream, and abruga caviar. The combination of crispy baguette with chewy shrimp and popping caviar fills the mouth with a rich texture. Please note that you must order at least 2 pinchos per person when ordering for the first time.
â²Location: 7 Wangsimni-ro 11-gil, Seongdong-gu, Seoul
â²Business hours: 11:30 â 22:00 every day, B/T (weekdays) 15:00 â 17:30, B/T (weekends) 15:30 â 17:30
â²Price: SHRIMP 6,500 won, CHEESE 12,500 won
â²Testimonial (shikigin crab croquette): I think they just moved Spain from the exterior of the store to the menu they sell. The menu has a pincho picture so you can see how it comes out when you order. The baguette itself, which I think is the core of pincho, had a great texture and flavor. After eating the pincho, I ate Basque cheesecake for dessert, and it really melts.
