Do you remember the sweet and delicious dongchimi in the snowy Jangdok in the middle of winter when ice was precious? If you pour a bowl of dongchimi into any noodle and eat it, I poured it into a delicacy that can only be enjoyed in winter. Pick up padding and go on a noodle trip to enjoy the rich and clean flavor of winter dongchimi. Here are 5 best places famous for dongchimi makguksu in Seoul.
1. âSeongten Makguksu,â a real dongchimi broth mixed with buckwheat on the outside
The Makguk Collection boasts over 50 years of experience. There are âmulmakguksu,â which contains only soba noodles without any garnish in a clear dongchimi broth, and âbibimmakguksu,â which is flavored with sesame oil and sauce. The noodles have a nostalgic flavor that comes from the dongchimi broth dipped directly into it. Dongchimi has a sweet winter radish flavor. It's sensitive to temperature changes, so tasting it in winter is key. As a cold dish, they serve salty paper soaked in dongchimi, and you can add mustard, soy sauce, and vinegar to taste whatever you like.
â²Location: 2, Dapsimni-ro 48na-gil, Dongdaemun-gu, Seoul
â²Business hours: 11:30 to 21:00 (B/T weekdays 15:00 to 17:00) Closed on Sundays
â²Price: Water noodles 6,500 won, bibimak noodles 7,000 won, pork 11,000 won
â²Review (Shikigami Healing Chicken 2): I think the point of water makguksu is that you can enjoy the natural flavors of dongchimi soup and soba noodles. Bibim Makguksu also has savory sesame oil and sweet and spicy sauce that goes well with noodles.
2. Goseong-style dongchimi broth and sashimi, Banghwa-dong âGoseong makguksuâ
It's a place where you can really enjoy the crunchy texture of making noodles using only soba noodles. As you chew the noodles, you can feel the savory scent of soba that you can feel the more you chew. Iced dongchimi is served separately, but I recommend adding a little dongchimi broth at the beginning to feel the savory flavor of the noodles, adding lots of broth to enjoy the rich and refreshing flavor, and finally tasting it with sashimi. The well-boiled, tender pork is also a delicacy.
â²Location: 6-7 Banghwa-daero 49-gil, Gangseo-gu, Seoul
â²Opening hours: 11:30 â 20:00 every day, B/T 15:30 â 16:30, closed on Sundays
â²Price: Dongchimi Makguksu 9,000 won, pork (small) 24,000 won
â²Review (CEO of Shikishin Kim): Soba noodles are definitely the best!! The products in the East and United States are also top notch! However, the amount of pork cutlets has been reduced, and there is a disadvantage that the weight is long at lunch! Definitely a great value for money for Makguksu in Seoul!
3. Enjoy yakiniku wrapped in makguksu, 'Makbul-dong' in Sillim-dong
A restaurant in Shillim-dong that is steadily gaining regulars even among many long-established Dongchimi Makguksu restaurants. Seeing the aged dongchimi in the corner of the store makes me imagine and look forward to seeing the ripe and sour dongchimi coming up on my table. Dongchimi Maksam is a dish you can enjoy to the fullest by serving dongchimi makguksu with yakiniku. Hand-picked soba noodles go well with the non-irritating dongchimi broth. The ingredients are sold in milk kits, so it's great to make and eat at home.
â²Location: 1599 Nambusunhwan-ro, Gwanak-gu, Seoul
â²Business hours: 11:00 ~ 21:00 (B/T 16:00 ~ 16:30)
â²Price: Dongchimi-maki 9,000 won, bibimbap 9,000 won, soba shrimp gyoza 7,000 won
â²Testimonial (Shikigin Patriarch): I think it was a good flavor. If you make soba, it comes with yakiniku. The staff are very kind and the lady is very kind. The shrimp gyoza was good, and the dumplings were good too. In particular, I think the soba noodles taste even better because they are homemade noodles. I recommend it.
4. âYangyang soba makguksu,â the flavor of makguksu chosen by Michelin
The main dish is soba makguksu with a thick soup stock that is comparable to Pyongyang cold noodles, but dongchimi makguksu is also quite good. When the sweet, sour, and rich broth with strong carbonation hits your tongue, the savory oil flavor of seaweed and sesame garnish spreads, and the savory flavor of the soba noodles gets better as you chew. The slightly crunchy flavor of the noodles is addictive. I like the routine of eating dongchimi mura once in a while enjoying the tender meat and soba noodles.
â²Location: 10 Donggwang-ro 15-gil, Seocho-gu, Seoul
â²Business hours: 11:00 ~ 21:00 (B/T 15:00 ~ 17:00)
â²Price: Dongchimi makguksu 12,000 won, soba makguksu 12,000 won, soba makguksu 10,000 won
â²Testimonial (Park Jun-beom): Makguksu is made by kneading the makguksu right away and contains a lot of soba, so it's light and delicious. The beef is also delicious. I've been to many makgukguk stores, and I think they are the best in terms of simplicity.
5. âHocheon Restaurantâ, a refreshing dongchimi broth
Although it is a restaurant located in the bustling Yeonhui-dong, Makguksu has a quiet and quiet atmosphere. Although the dongchimi broth is not very sour or sweet, it has a rich flavor like Pyongyang cold noodles, but it is made by mixing arongsa-tae broth with dongchimi. The characteristic of soba noodles is that they are made from only the inner buckwheat and are smooth without feeling crunchy. The yakiniku set includes grilled meat and green onions. The yakiniku is moderately aromatic and has a chewy flavor, and the sweet and sour green onion sauce is delicious.
â²Location: 5 Yeonhui-ro 14-gil, Seodaemun-gu, Seoul
â²Business hours: 11:00 to 22:00 (B/T 15:00 to 17:00, closed every Monday)
â²Price: Soba makguksu 9,000 won, soba makguksu+pork set 12,000 won
â²Testimonial (Scarlette Shikigin): An email noodle made from 100% soba that's completely broken… It was so nice… I ate it as a beef and pork charcoal grill set, and it went great together… pork and beef were both delicious~~
