Since ancient times, âkamameshiâ has been one of the foods served when serving precious customers in Korea. The kamameshi made by carefully adjusting the temperature and heat has a warm warmth. Recently, kamameshi, which can be packed with both flavor and nutrition, has been attracting attention in the restaurant industry. It feels like eating a single dish by putting rice, seafood, meat, and vegetables together in a stone pot. Don't miss the sunnyoku, which is made by removing the rice from the kamameshi and then pouring hot water. It's a good idea to finish the meal with a delicious savory soup. Here are 5 of the best kamameshi restaurants that will fill your heart.

âChori Sanggyeongâ uses Yeongho delicacies from Naju, a top-grade rice variety, and you can feel the chewy stickiness of the rice grains. The signature menu is âsalmon kamameshi,â in which salmon marinated in soy sauce is grilled over an open flame and placed on top of rice. It comes with 4 side dishes and soup, including giblets, seaweed, and white kimchi. If you wrap rice, salmon, or wasabi on top of seaweed, the refreshing, savory flavor is appealing.

âLittle Bitâ is a Japanese kamameshi restaurant with tatami mats, reminiscent of a Japanese tatami room. It has been located in Insa-dong for over 40 years. The signature menu, âA little kamameshi,â combines kamameshi, bamboo shoots, oysters, shrimp, mushrooms, jujube, ginkgo, chestnuts, and miso meat, so just looking at it makes you feel full. Since the liver is not strong, it boasts a healthy flavor that brings out the natural flavors of the ingredients.

âAretteâ is a kamameshi restaurant during the day and a kamameshi bar where you can enjoy kamameshi and wine in the evening. The signature menu is âsea bream kamameshi,â where sesame seeds, chives, sea bream, and stewed radish are placed on top of crispy rice. I used domestic red snapper to make the most of its light flavor. If you crush the stewed radish and sea bream thoroughly, add a special sauce and mix them with rice, the aroma will fill your mouth.
