korean food / seoul / [100 Year Classic Series] 5 Best Restaurants in Chungnam – 2668

'Chungnam' is a great city to enjoy the beauty of relaxation. In Chungnam, you can find places where you can feel the footsteps of Baekje, centered around Gongju and Buyeo, which were the capitals of Baekje in the past. Starting with Gongju's Magoksa Temple, which has significant value enough to be listed as a World Heritage Site, the Buyeo National Museum in Buyeo, where the history of Baekje lives and breathes, Pagjeongho in Nonsan, which is loved by many as a driving course, and the camellia forest in Seocheon, designated as a natural monument, it is also known as a mecca for family trips. The fun of discovering historic restaurants that have been as old as tourist spots is a bonus! Here are 5 of the best restaurants in Chungnam that have a consistent flavor from generation to generation.

The “local restaurant” brings in domestic soybeans grown in Gongju and nearby regions, floats meju, and dips them directly for use. Traditional ingredients such as gochujang and miso made in traditional ways are used to add a deep flavor to food. The signature menu is miso stew made by putting vegetables and oolong in miso soup, and “oolong miso jjigae,” where 8 kinds of side dishes are served together. The oolong miso stew that comes from boiling in an earthenware pot is an excellent combination of savory soup and plump oolong. A popular way to enjoy a bibimbap style is to put side dishes such as radish sprouts, bean sprouts, and seasonal herbs on top of rice and add oolong miso stew, homemade pepper sauce, and perilla oil. A variety of side dishes and chewy beef are blended in the mouth to provide a rich flavor and texture.

“Gudrae Hwangtojeong” is a great place to enjoy a relaxing meal in a luxurious traditional hanok. You can enjoy grade 1 or higher Korean beef cows selected by strict criteria from Korean beef farmers at reasonable prices. As for meat, the “special platter,” which consists of sirloin, skirt meat, and butchat meat, is the most popular, and it is fun to choose and eat each part, such as brisket, rib sirloin, tenderloin, and fillets. Korean beef ribs are also popular, with lotus leaves grown by hand, ribs seasoned with spicy, sweet, and salty flavors with direct enzymes, and a variety of dishes. Lotus leaf rice is provided as a standard, and side dishes made from local agricultural products further enhance the richness of the meal.

▲Business hours: 11:00 — 21:30 every day

â–²Price: Special platter 30,000 won, pork rib set meal 30,000 won

â–²Testimonial (Fresh Food Lemona): The hanok store itself is so quiet and the scenery that unfolds out of the window is so beautiful that just looking at it is a healing feeling. The atmosphere is perfect for a special day or to come with someone special! I only used cow's milk, so the Korean beef was really soft and had a very different flavor. I liked the good heat and the subtle charcoal scent of the meat.

“Park Ga-nejip” is a meat specialty restaurant that has been serving only domestic Korean beef and pork since 1995. They run a butcher shop and restaurant together, so you can find high-quality meat slaughtered and prepared by yourself at an affordable price. Beef, radish, tofu, and beef soup soup that is freshly boiled in a secret broth and served as a service, and green onion miso made with plenty of green onions in miso stew are delicacies unique to this restaurant. The signature menu is “Korean beef sirloin” and “Korean beef special part,” where white marbling falls brilliantly on a red spot with fresh light. If you grill the thick sirloin slightly from front to side and taste it, you can experience the rich flavor of the meat and the moist juiciness at the same time. A special sauce made from finely chopped peppers and green onion miso, which is full of umami, relieves the fatty flavor unique to beef and at the same time cleans up the aftertaste. “Korean beef bone steak soup,” “yukgaejang,” and “seolleungtang,” which are flavored with meat other than grilled meat, are also favorite meal menus.

The marbling, which looks delicious even if you just look at it, is alive, and if you grill it a little bit like Korean beef and eat it, it melts in your mouth. Sometimes I go out to eat the meal menu, and the rice cake soup made with Korean beef bones is very rich and hearty.

“Taeneung-cho gajip ribs” make the most of the tender meat quality of domestic pork through a long aging process. When you order meat, a hearty menu including kimchi, pickles, tempura, marinated crab, and pork is served, starting with a salad that enhances the taste. The signature menu, “25 Years of Pork Ribs,” is made by carefully selecting only grade 1 or higher parts of raw handon ribs. Ribs with a double sheath are placed in a special sauce made by grinding apples, pears, onions, and medicinal herbs, and aged at low temperature for 72 hours to serve. The characteristic is that it has a mild sweetness with honey and doesn't bite even if you eat a lot. The pork ribs, which are deeply soaked with sauce between the scabbards, have an addictive sweet flavor and a moist texture.

Every morning, “Delicacies Restaurant” begins a day's work by grinding beans on a millstone. It presents healthy food using seori-tae soybeans grown by farmers in the Seocheon region. The signature menu is “bean noodles,” made by putting plenty of noodles in soy sauce made by thickly grinding seori tae and finishing with a cucumber garnish. The soup, which contains the unique flavor of Seori-tae, envelops the tongue and gives it a rich aroma. The creamy, mouth-watering soup blends harmoniously with the chewy noodles. Another popular dish is the “soybean paste,” made by cutting vegetables such as carrots and chives into oil on the leftover bean paste. Because of its crunchy texture and light flavor, it is a favorite with soybean noodles. Business hours change depending on the season, so be aware when visiting.

â–²Location: 885, Jongpan-ro, Pangyo-myeon, Seocheon-gun, Chungcheongnam-do

▲Business hours: Monday to mid-September 11:00 to 15:30, Tuesday, Thursday — Sunday 11:00 — 19:30, B/T 15:30 — 17:30, B/T 15:30 — 17:30, late September to early April, 11:00 to 15:00 every day; business hours may vary

â–²Price: Bean noodles 8,500 won, bean paste 12,000 won

â–²Testimonial (Watermelon claps): Bean noodles are really savory without the smell of soybeans. The noodles are thicker than regular noodles, so they still have a chewy flavor. The soybean noodles themselves have a lot of volume, but if you eat all the soybeans, your stomach will be completely satisfied! If you pay 1,000 won when eating soybean noodles, you can also add soy sauce or a small portion of soy sauce.
