âBusanâ is known as the second capital of Korea. It is a city where you can enjoy the charm of a harmonious combination of nature and the city. The blue sea and sparkling sandy beach take your heart away, and catch the eye with the colorful night view of the starry sky. There are plenty of things to do everywhere you visit, such as Blue Line Park, where you can enjoy the seaside scenery along the coastline, Busan International Film Festival, the largest film festival in Asia, a traditional market where you can enjoy a long history, and Dongbaek Island, which is colored in different colors every season. Busan, which is full of things to do, is nicknamed a foodie city, so there are so many places to eat. Here are 5 of the best restaurants in Busan that have been loved for a long time for their extraordinary sincerity and taste.
1. 'Taehwa Yukgaejang' in Bujeon-dong, Busan, with a refreshing yet deep flavor
âTaehwa Yukgaejangâ has maintained a consistent flavor with Korean beef purchased from wholesalers with which it has been trading for decades. While continuing for the third generation, it has maintained its belief in quality ingredients. The signature menu is âyukgaejang,â made by adding brisket, bean sprouts, and green onions to Korean beef bone and seasoning it with a slow-simmered broth. It is seasoned with red pepper powder instead of chili oil, and is characterized by a refreshing flavor without being thick. Instead of taro and bracken, I added plenty of bean sprouts and shredded brisket to make the most of the refreshing yet deep flavor. Somen sari is rolled up in the soup to add strength to the meal. If you like, you can enjoy a slightly more refreshing flavor by adding the green onion sauce placed on the table. If you want a sharp soup, you can eat it with cheongyang pepper.
â²Location: 18, Seomyeonmunhwa-ro, Busanjin-gu, Busan
â²Opening hours: 08:30 â 21:30 every day, closed on the first and third Sundays
â²Price: Yukgaejang 8,000 won, beef (small) 20,000 won
â²Testimonial (It's a pick-me-up): When you do yukgaejang, the soup is usually greasy, but it's refreshing, so it's easy to eat! It's also full of brisket, so if you roll up the rice and eat it with kimchi, you can have a really filling meal. Sometimes when I want to have a drink, I try to eat beef with it, but it doesn't contain any meat and the meat is tender, so it's a great snack.
2. 'Medicinal soybean noodles' made by hand in Yongho-dong, Busan, with each ingredient made by hand

âMedicinal soybean noodlesâ are prepared by the son-in-law and daughter by inheriting wheat noodles from the artisan and mother-in-law who have been running a restaurant for about 40 years. By incorporating the couple's individuality into the recipe of the first boss, they make all the ingredients in wheat noodles by hand, from broth to noodles, sauce, cold noodles, kimchi, and vinegar to present unique noodles. The signature menu, âWater mill noodles,â is made from Korean beef bones, a broth made with care for 48 hours or more with 8 kinds of herbal ingredients, 4 kinds of vegetables, and noodles made with natural soy sauce made from hamcho and tot, and the superfood medicinal soybeans (Seo Mok Tae), which is comfortable even after a meal. The sauce containing homemade kelp vinegar made from millet kelp adds a subtle herbal aroma and rich flavor.
â²Location: 6, Yongho-ro 97beon-gil, Nam-gu, Busan
â²Opening hours: 11:00 â 19:50, B/T 15:30 â 17:00
â²Price: Water mill noodles 6,000 won, water bib noodles 6,500 won
â²Testimonial (shikigin is a nickname): When the weather is hot, it's a place I go to eat watery noodles that are covered in ice. The noodles have a savory flavor because they are kneaded with medicinal soybeans. The sauce is also made by grinding apples, pears, etc., so it's not irritating and sticks to the mouth. If you try sweet rib dumplings and eat them, they go well with wheat noodles.
3. 'Hope Tongdak' in Nakmin-dong, Busan, showing the quintessence of a quick touch on the outside

âHope Chicken,â which started in 1983 at Deokpo Market in Busan under the name âKokko Tongdak,â moved to its current location in 1993 and settled in its current location. The nostalgic sensibility comes from the salad, which is made by cutting cabbage into long slices and sprinkling a sauce mixed with ketchup and mayonnaise. The signature menu is âhalf-and-half chicken,â a batter made by mixing special powder and eggs with water made by grinding garlic, onions, and ginger to make the most of its crunchy texture. It's fun to enjoy alternating between two flavors: fried chicken, which has a rich flavor, and seasoned chicken with a sweet and spicy sauce that captivates the taste buds. The âchicken poop shop,â which is bite-sized chicken drumsticks covered in tempura batter and deep-fried, is as popular as the main dish. The crispy batter and the chewy chicken tenders combine to create an addictive texture.
â²Location: 94 Myeongnyun-ro 98beon-gil, Dongnae-gu, Busan
â²Business hours: Tuesday to Thursday 14:00 to 23:30, Friday to Sunday 10:00 to 23:30, closed on Mondays
â²Price: Ban Ban Chicken 17,000 won, Chicken Poop House (small) 8,000 won, Pepper and Soy Sauce Chicken 17,000 won
â²Testimonial (Shikigin Lotto's older brother): One whole chicken is enough for three people to eat. The breast area also doesn't feel stiff, and you can feel the overall feeling of tightness on the outside. It doesn't have a flavor that makes you feel that the oil has been removed easily, so if you eat it with a cold beer, it feels like you can eat it in unlimited quantities! Just because the chicken wasn't salted as an additive, you can eat it with confidence. hehe
4. 'Jinju Chueotang' in Guseo-dong, Busan, filled with warm taste and sincerity

From 1990 until now, âJinju Chuertangâ has been consistently loved for its warm taste and generosity. When ordering a meal, side dishes such as cabbage, cabbage, and kelp boiled wraps, simmered kodari, salted fish, kimchi, and stir-fried anchovies are served lavishly. The signature menu, âChuertang,â is served by putting thinly sliced mint leaves on top of a clear soup like miso soup. Mackerel ground directly from beef stew is boiled over a long period of time, and the rich, savory flavor soaks into the rich, savory soup, bringing out the fresh flavor. If you've fully enjoyed the natural flavor of chuertang, you can add minced garlic, green onions, red pepper, and Japanese pepper powder for a variety. âBibimbap,â which is rice topped with 6 kinds of herbs such as bracken, radish sprouts, and spinach, and beef gochujang is also popular. Bibimbap, which has a variety of textures, is served with a mini chuertang to add a hearty touch. The online store also sells freshly brewed chuertang every day.
â²Location: 40, Anteul-ro 7beon-gil, Geumjeong-gu, Busan
â²Opening hours: 11:00 â 20:00 every day, closed on Sundays
â²Price: Chuertang 8,000 won, bibimbap 9,000 won
â²Testimonial (Seokshin Haeseun Kim Yang): The owner's taste is so great that you can whip up a bowl of rice as a basic side dish. If you put rice and salted fish on a cabbage wrap and eat it, the taste will go wild. Overall, the chuertang had a healthy flavor, so when I rolled up a bowl of rice, I felt like eating a bowl of healthy food.
5. 'Familia Bakery, 'Hakjang-dong, Busan, baked bread filled with health
âFamilia Bakeryâ is a place where you can enjoy bread baked by CEO Kim Mun-kuk, who spent 38 years in the middle of his life as a bakery. You can get a glimpse of the CEO's brilliant career, including a confectionery engineer, an outstanding skilled technician, the best craftsman in Busan, and receiving a presidential commendation. We want to make healthy bread that is easy to digest by adding fermented lactic acid bacteria to about 200 types of bread dough produced in stores. The signature menu is âMont Blanc Pastry,â made by rolling the pastry into a round dome shape. The combination of the unique texture of the pastry that is torn along the texture and the pleasant scent of butter that spreads comfortably is attractive. Madeleine's âSeunghak Mountain Snowflake Bread,â which is shaped like Seunghak Mountain, is also popular. Thanks to its moist texture and light flavor, it goes well with white milk.
â²Location: 101 Daedong-ro, Sasang-gu, Busan

â²Testimonial (Shikigami Certificate Collector): This is a famous local bakery that everyone in the town knows. There are so many types of bread, so I try them one by one, but nothing is tasteless. In particular, Montblanc pastries have a savory yet sweet flavor, so once you take a bite, it's easy! The basic Mont Blanc is delicious, but the one filled with fresh cream is also delicious because it's sweet.
