korean food / seoul / Hot flames! 5 hidden spicy champon restaurants – 2785

The cool autumn weather was just around the corner, and winter, when my body shrunk in the cold wind, came right around the corner. When my body shudders from the raging wind, I think of a sharp yet hot soup. On a day like this, a bowl of “champon,” made by sweetly stir-frying vegetables, meat, and seafood with spicy condiments, then adding broth and rolling up the noodles, is perfect. Nowadays, spicy champon, which maximizes the spiciness by adding rat dung pepper and cheongyang pepper, is popular. When I constantly slurp off the chewy soup and chewy noodles that pop up on my tongue, an empty bowl is placed before I know it. The addictive spiciness that you can't miss while sweating not only relieves stress, but also warms a frozen body. Here are 5 of the best spicy champon restaurants full of hot flavors.

1. 'Double Palban Mapo Gongdeok Store' in Yeomni-dong, Seoul, where the flavors and quantities from memories continue

With a bowl of jajangmyeon, “Ssangpalbanjeom Mapo Gongdeok Branch” is a mutual expression of the meaning of continuing the happy price and quantity of the double eight years. After starting as a delivery specialty store, it continued to gain popularity and even opened a whole store. It's a place where you can find fusion Chinese food with trendy sensibility, such as shrimp jajang, meat jajang, Chinese bacon, kimchi, fried rice, etc. The signature menu “Special Champon” uses seafood such as mussels, clams, and squid, as well as pork, to create a heavy yet refreshing soup flavor. The special champon, which has a sharp broth soaked between the noodles, enhances the chewy flavor with sweet, ripe vegetables and hearty ingredients. You can adjust the spiciness level from level 1 to level 3 according to your preferences. The “one-person set” menu, which offers meal menus and popular food menus at reasonable prices, is also popular among honbap families. It's a great place to enjoy a meal consisting of cha-chan, champon, and fried rice, and a cooking menu consisting of kabarou, menbosha, and Chinese shrimp in a combination that suits your taste.

â–²Location: 30 Sungmun-gil, Mapo-gu, Seoul

▲Opening hours: 10:00 — 22:00 every day

â–²Price: Special champon 8,000 won, set for 1 person 9,900 to 13,400

â–²Testimonial (Shikigin Wonnaschan lol): It was a very tasty place to eat in the Delivery Nation, but I also visited the store because it was close to home. I ordered a special champon from the champon pie, but it had plenty of noodles as well as meat and seafood, so I was completely full after eating one bowl! The soup wasn't greasy either, so I didn't feel uncomfortable even if I ate all of the soup. The price was too expensive to make and eat the prawn dishes, but they were sold in units of 6, so it's great that they can be sold as a single item or as a set menu!

2. Yeoju Changdong's “Yujajang”, where the spiciness becomes stronger the more you eat

“Yujaja” is a red signboard with yellow letters on it, and you can feel the long-standing force. They have competed with only two menus: the main menu “champon” and the side menu “tempura gyoza.” Champon is divided into 5 flavors, from early to early, early, half stage, and level 1, where fried bulgogi noodles are spicy. The champon, which is made by stir-frying vegetables at the same time as ordering, combines crunchy vegetables with chewy noodles to create a rich texture. At the beginning of the soup, the cool flavor spreads pleasantly, and the spiciness becomes stronger as you eat it, and it boasts an addictive flavor. It's attractive that the inside doesn't feel bloated even after a meal, thanks to the soup that is not greasy and falls clean and just right.

â–²Location: 17-1, Sejong-ro 46beon-gil, Yeoju, Gyeonggi

▲Opening hours: 11:30 — 18:00 every day, B/T 14:00 — 16:30, early closing when materials run out

â–²Price: Champon 10,000 won, fried dumpling 6,000 won

â–²Testimonial (Let's eat another meal): It used to be famous when I went to Infinity Challenge, but I went there because it was a chance when I went nearby. The squid and shrimp were also packed in a fresh package, but they weren't small and the size was big. I often eat spicy food, so the early days were the most delicious and spicy, and I was sweaty from the beginning. Juicy grilled gyoza is delicious on its own, and if you eat champon in the middle and take a bite when the spiciness reaches its peak, you can start over!

3. The rich flavor added by sweet and spicy yakiniku, Paju Bongseori “Matna Banjang”

“Madna Banten” is a place where you can enjoy a unique type of champon that you can't easily find anywhere else. The characteristic is that it is topped full of yakiniku toppings flavored with soy sauce made from apples steamed in a steamer. The signature menu “Bulgogi Mada Champon” is a mixture of Vietnamese chili powder, cheongyang pepper powder, and regular red pepper powder in a 2:2:6 ratio to show off a deep spiciness. It is quickly stir-fried over high heat, and the savory flavor of the meat melts into the soup and adds a rich aroma. If you want a more intense flavor, try the “yakiniku liver champon,” which is made with its own soup. The more you chew the noodles that are deeply soaked in the soup, the more the spicy flavor spreads.

â–²Location: 25 Chunghyeon-ro, Paju-eup, Paju-eup, Paju, Gyeonggi

▲Opening hours: 10:30 — 20:00 every day, B/T 14:30 — 15:30, closed on Fridays, early closing when materials are exhausted

â–²Price: Yakiniku Mashina Champon 11,000 won, Mina Champon 8,000 won

â–²Testimonial (Shikigami Pororiya): The yakiniku placed on top of champon is delicious even if you just eat the yakiniku so much that you can eat a bowl of rice. I even added a fried egg and ate it, but when the egg yolk popped up and I ate it with the rich soup, it was twice as savory! There are lots of mussels and blue crab seafood underneath the meat, so you can eat a lot of meat and seafood!

4. 'Dongrak Banjo' in Sungui-dong, Incheon, which has preserved its unwavering taste

“Dongnak spots” have traces of time everywhere, such as the outer wall with ivory tiles and windows with iron bars. Although the owner changed several times after staying in their seat for a long time, they have maintained the taste of the beginning of the business. The signature menu is “pepper champon,” which has a spicy scent that irritates the nose the moment it appears on the table. Vietnamese pepper was added to the soup, which contains the refreshing flavors of seafood such as clams, shrimp, and squid, to add a refreshing flavor. In particular, the generous amount of clam meat blends with the noodles and stands out for its chewy, crunchy texture. The combination of drying the noodles to a certain extent and then adding “fried rice” and eating it rolled into the soup is popular. You can experience the rich flavor of each slow-roasted grain of rice filled with soup.

â–²Location: 473 Dokbae-ro, Michuhol-gu, Incheon

▲Opening hours: 11:00 — 21:00 every day, B/T 15:00 — 16:00, closed on Mondays

â–²Price: Red pepper champon 8,000 won, pepper champon rice 8,500 won

â–²Testimonial (Shikigin Bling Bling Yoni): Even if I order red pepper champon rice, they go with fried rice, but I always want to eat noodles together, so I eat a combination of pepper champon plus fried rice. Chilli champon feels like it breaks right away as soon as you add the soup! It feels like the alcohol wakes up right away as the inside, which was really blocked, opens up. When I have some leftover noodles, I roll up the rice and eat it together with a spoon, and I'm full until dinner that day. hehe

5. 'Imseongbanjeom' in Yongdam-dong, Jeju, famous as a must-see for a trip to Jeju

“Imseong Banjeom” is a place that continues to enjoy authentic Chinese cuisine near Jeju Airport. It used to be popular as a hidden restaurant among locals, but it has been steadily gaining popularity among tourists since a few years ago. The signature menu is “pepper champon,” where ingredients such as shrimp, bok choy, Chinese cabbage, squid, oysters, and mushrooms are simply placed on top of a rich, orange-colored broth. There is an excellent balance between the flavor of the sea derived from seafood and the natural mild sweetness of the vegetables. The seafood and vegetables cut into large pieces give the mouth a rich texture when chewed together with the noodles. Right next to the store, you can buy gyoza at a Chinese dumpling shop run by the owner's son and add it to your meal.

â–²Location: Jeju Jeju Yonghwa-ro 57-1

▲Opening hours: 10:50 — 20:00 every day, closed on Sundays

â–²Price: Pepper champon 9,000 won, soy sauce 7,000 won

â–²Review (Shikigami Melon4342): What kind of Chinese cuisine is on Jeju Island, but I definitely recommend visiting this place at least once! Other dishes are delicious, but you should definitely try pepper champon here. It contains a lot of seafood such as oysters, squid, and shrimp, and the firm texture is still there. If you mix sweet and sour pork and eat spicy champon and then sweet and sour pork, you can eat them all without difficulty! Originally, I didn't eat all the soup, but the soup here was so delicious that I took a break.
