korean food / seoul / Top 5 Kimchi Wrapped Noodle Restaurants with Sour Hometown Flavors – 2762

When I think of Korea's representative food, “kimchi” is the first thing that comes to mind. Like Koreans who are serious about eating kimchi stew, kimchi jeon, kimchi fried rice, kimchi dumplings, and steamed kimchi, they have developed various cuisines with kimchi alone. If you go up north, “kimchi rolled noodles,” which I enjoyed eating in the Hwanghae-do and Pyeongan-do regions, is well known as the representative kimchi food of North Korea. When I was hungry and ambitious, I took out kimchi soaked in kimjang-dok, rolled it with noodles, and ate it overnight, and gradually more and more people in Korea are looking for that flavor.

Even though the kimchi flavor is different from house to house, the kimchi roll noodles also contain the individuality of each store, even if they look like similar recipes. The meat broth also adds a deep flavor, the anchovy broth emphasizes the refreshing flavor, and dongchimi broth is added to make the most of the refreshing flavor. If you add kimchi soup and various condiments to the broth and then roll up the noodles, a bowl of kimchi rolled noodles that revives the taste you didn't have is ready. When I slurp through the chewy noodles mixed with the sweet and sour broth, I feel refreshed to the inside. Ice-cold, refreshing, and sour taste of hometown! Here are 5 of the best kimchi noodle restaurants.

1. Euljiro “Woo Rae Ok” made the most of its rich flavor with meat broth

“Woolaeok” can be found after passing through a narrow alley on Euljiro 4, where shopping districts and factories are closely connected. It is a historic restaurant that opened its first door in 1946 and continues to be famous until now. Although it is widely known as a Pyongyang cold noodle restaurant, “kimchi wrapped cold noodles” is considered a delicacy among enthusiasts. Cold kimchi noodles are served by putting soba noodles on top of rice, pouring plenty of meat broth, and topping kimchi, pear, and brisket. The rich meat flavor of the broth combines the flavors of Chinese cabbage kimchi and nabak kimchi to create an even more luxurious flavor. The savory flavor of the soba noodles added to the rich broth is exquisite. Please note that you can remove noodles or rice according to your preferences when ordering.

Since I tried kimchi wrapped cold noodles as recommended by my parents, I completely fell in love with the taste! The sweetness of nabak kimchi is added to the thick broth, so it's delicious even if you just drink the soup! There's kimchi inside, but it's even more delicious if you wrap the kimchi that comes as a side dish. hehe

“Snow Tree House” is a place that has remained in place for over 20 years at the end of Samcheong-dong. The interior of the store, which was renovated from a home and filled with wooden furniture, creates a cozy yet intimate atmosphere. The signature menu is “kimchi rolled noodles,” where seaweed powder and eggs are placed on top of a broth made with ice cream. The subtle aroma of sesame oil and seaweed powder is added to the sour kimchi soup that enhances the taste buds. I also recommend tasting “Tteokgalbi,” which is finely chopped ribs, seasoned with soy sauce, and grilled with mochi. The combination of taking hot teokgalbi into bite-size pieces and eating kimchi rolls with noodles is popular. The sweetness of rice cake galbi is added to the kimchi broth, so you can experience the addictive sweetness and saltiness.

In Samcheong-dong, there are times when you wonder if there are any places other than cafes or restaurants where you can do casual yoga. That's when this house is right for you. It's a place that has been on Samcheong-dong Street for quite some time and watches the rise and fall of this street, and I usually order kimchi roll noodles and teokgalbi as a set. Breathing in the refreshing acidity and refreshing soup makes you feel refreshed.

“Ham Byeong-hyeon Kimchi Mari Noodle” has recreated the flavors Ham Byeong-hyeon, the first founder from Pyeongan-do, as it was eaten in his hometown. Currently, the oldest son and his wife are protecting their mother's taste. The signature menu, “Kimchi Mashed Noodles,” has a bright red broth topped with plenty of garnishes such as egg, pear, cucumber, hot radish kimchi, flat pork, crushed tofu, and red pepper. The kimchi soup, which has been aged for 20 days, is mixed with 3 types of broth, beef bone broth, rice broth, and udon broth to make the deep flavor of the soup. Finely crushed tofu gently melts into the soup, where the flavor of kimchi melts deliciously, further enhances the light yet savory flavor. They also have a variety of side dishes that are great to go with, such as juicy gyoza, crispy rice crackers, and tender pork.

â–²Review (Shikigami Pororiya): I stumbled upon this place while driving in Pocheon, but I was surprised that it was a famous restaurant! There was a wait, but the turnover was fast, so I went right in. I tried kimchi rolled noodles with tofu for the first time, and I inhaled it because the savory flavor of tofu and the sour kimchi soup went really well together. The dumplings are rolled gyoza style, but the skin of the dumpling is thin, so I was able to really enjoy the taste of gyoza!

'Bongsan-ok Seocho-dong Main Store' is run by CEO Yoon Young-sook, who inherited a taste from her mother-in-law in Hwanghae-do. Adhering to her mother-in-law's authentic recipe, she offers Hwanghae-style food such as wagyu noodles and dumpling soup. The signature menu is “kimchi rolled noodles,” where kimchi, cucumber, and eggs are piled on top of yellowish noodles and then a cool broth is poured. It's easy to eat casually because of the broth that's not irritating and leaves you feeling refreshed. The thick noodles, which make use of their chewy texture, are chewy with crunchy kimchi and cucumber, providing an even richer texture. “Bongsan Dumpling Soup,” which is topped with sliced green onions and a garnish of thinly torn beef, is also a popular menu item. The broth made by slowly simmering brisket, onions, and radishes for 12 hours fills the inside with heat.

I ate kimchi noodles, but the noodles were thicker than regular noodles, so they were plump. The soup was so clean that when I slurped it off, I unknowingly left an empty bowl! The dumpling soup that my friend ordered was really rich in soup, and it was full of gyoza, so it felt hearty!

“Rak Hee-ok Mapo Main Store” is a mutual meaning of a house with joy (joy) and joy (joy). It is a Korean bar where you can enjoy a variety of alcoholic beverages such as wine, craft beer, and traditional sake along with Korean snacks. The signature menu, “Kimchi Rolled Noodles,” is served to customers by putting kimchi in a plain way on top of finely rolled somen noodles and filling them with plenty of slush broth. The soup made by mixing kimchi soup soaked in Korean beef brisket broth with dongchimi broth, onion, and pear juice is filtered several times and has a refreshing flavor. The sweet and spicy flavors of onions and pears are harmoniously combined with the tangy flavor of dongchimi broth, creating a deep umami flavor. In addition, there are a variety of delicious Korean snack menus, such as bosam, yukjeon, and turtle hands.

â–²Testimonial (Bosugin pork): When I first saw it, the soup was simply filled with noodles and kimchi, so I wasn't expecting much, but the moment I drank the broth, my eyes flashed. It was nice to be able to enjoy the refreshing flavor unique to dongchimi because it contains aged dongchimi soup. The noodles also had a chewy feel, and the broth was cold, so it was very chewy and chewy. I also ordered bosam, but it's the best snack if you roll the noodles in bosam and eat it with kimchi.
