“Dongil Jang Kalguksu,” which is nestled between an industrial complex, is famous as a jangkal noodle restaurant where tourists as well as locals line up to eat because of its unflavored, clean soup. The signature menu is “jangkal noodles,” which combines chewy noodles in a soup that has a sharp flavor made from gochujang. A hearty soup made with pumpkin, eggs, mushrooms, clams, and horseradish was sprinkled with plenty of seaweed powder and sesame seeds to make the most of its aroma. The cool soup and noodles are subtly infused with the scent of horseradish, and the aroma of horseradish that fills the mouth stands out. When you've finished eating the kishimen noodles, it's a good idea to roll it up in the leftover soup for a more filling finish.

â–²Review (Shikigami Flava139): I went there on the weekend and waited for about 20 minutes after receiving the license plate. I ordered Jangkal noodles because I thought I must try Jangkal noodles when I come to Gangneung. Unlike red soup, it's not too spicy and has a cool flavor! The savory soup was amazing!! Even though I didn't drink alcohol, I felt relaxed. Hehe, the noodles were thin and chewy, and had a chewy taste.

2. Yangyang 'Yeonggwang Jeong Soba Noodles', a dongchimi soup with a refreshing umami flavor

“Yeonggwang Jeong Soba” started when a founder from Hamheung sold soba noodles he used to eat in his hometown. It is now in its third generation and has maintained its reputation for a long time. The “Traditional Culture Preservation Bottle Seal” is proudly hung on the wall to commemorate the fact that it is a famous traditional place included in the Korean Traditional Food Museum. The signature menu, “soba noodles,” comes with soba noodles topped with seaweed powder, sesame powder, and sauce, and dongchimi soup. If you add two scoops of dongchimi soup with ice to the soba noodles and eat it with vinegar and sugar according to your preferences, you can enjoy a deeper flavor. The sweet and spicy flavor of the sauce blends harmoniously with the refreshing umami of the dongchimi soup. Soba noodles, which have a strong flavor of savory soba, have an attractive texture that breaks smoothly.

▲Opening hours: 10:00 — 19:00 every day

â–²Price: 8,000 won for soba noodles, 23,000 won for pork

â–²Testimonial (Black Peanuts): I visited a soba restaurant that was featured on various broadcast media. At first, I ate only half of it with bibimbap soba, and ate the remaining half like soba with dongchimi soup of my own. The dongchimi soup is awesome here! I added dongchimi soup to the soba noodles, so it was so cool that it was really delicious. It's soba noodles, not wheat noodles, so it was nice that I didn't feel uncomfortable even after eating to my heart's content.

3. Smoothly melting moray eel meat, Sokcho's “Sadonjip”

“Sadonjip” is a mulgomguk soup specialty store that has been in business for about 26 years by the owner who was taught the recipe by his parents. Side dishes that enhance the taste, such as simmered mackerel, stewed potatoes, and cucumber sauce, fill the dish first. The signature menu is “mugomguk soup,” where vegetables such as green onions and onions are simmered in a broth mixed with red pepper powder, and fresh moray mackerel caught in the sea of Sokcho, and served to customers. If you take a bite of the sharp soup and low-fat moray eel, you can experience the mild flavor and tender texture of the mackerel meat that melts softly. “Flounder stew,” which is a spicy-sweet sauce made by hand simmering radish, green onions, and flounder, is also popular. The sauce penetrates deep into the flounder meat and gives it a rich umami flavor.

â–²Testimonial (The tiger eating is full of energy): The hearty water gomguk soup must be cooked longer than expected to be delicious. It had a soft texture unique to moray eel, so it was delicious. The soup is refreshing and I think it also has the effect of relieving hangovers. My stomach is all relaxed. I waited to go in, but it was worth the wait.

4. Grilled fish that offers a variety of cuisines, Gangneung 'Grilled Silbi Fish'

“Grilled shirubi fish” has been popular for about 35 years near Jumunjin Port. They opened 2 and 3 stores next to the main store and settled in Pyeongchang. The signature menu, “grilled fish platter,” comes with four types of grilled fish, lim yeon-su, mackerel, saury, and rockfish, served with miso stew made full of zucchini and tofu. The appearance of the shiny fish flowing over the browned skin enhances the taste buds. Each type of fish offers a variety of flavors and textures, such as Lim Yeon Soo, which boasts a light flavor, and mackerel, which is rich in fat. You can enjoy a richer flavor by dipping thick fish meat in soy sauce mixed with wasabi and eating it on white rice. You can also feel the warmth of the boss, who holds a bottle of rice crackers and water in his hand when you leave after a meal.

â–²Location: 1723, Haean-ro, Jumunjin-eup, Gangneung-si, Gangwon-do

â–²Opening hours: 06:00-22:00 every day

â–²Price: Assorted grilled fish 14,000 won, Dongtae stew 25,000 won

â–²Testimonial (It's shikigin bean soup and sugar): Salted herring roe and salted scallops were among the side dishes, but salted fish alone ruined the rice! We went in groups and ordered 2 servings of grilled fish platter and dongtae jjjigae. The hearty grilled fish was really full of puffiness, so it was delicious! Dongtae Jjigae contains bean sprouts, so it felt even more refreshing. I was satisfied because it also contained a lot of Dongtai meat.

5. Enjoy a cool time on the pool, Yangyang 'Schedule Yangyang'
