Goseong in Gangwon-do is bordered by Sokcho to the south and North Korea's Goseong-gun by a truce line to the north. It's relatively quiet and has no tall buildings, so it's a perfect place to enjoy all the views of the sky, mountains, and sea.
There are plenty of tourist attractions, starting with Mt. Seorak, Ulsan Rock, Mount Gumgang Shinseonbong, and the blue Sea of East China at a glance. Unification Observatory and DMZ Museum with views of Mount Gumgang Birobong and Haegeum River; Bongpo Beach with clear and clean water; Tianjin Beach with white sand stretches along the crescent moon shaped coastline; Lavender Farm where you can enjoy the vast waves of purple lavender flowers; Munam Port, which stretches between Baekdo Beach and Gyoamri Beach and is also known as Gombo Rock; 'Neungpadae', also known as Gombo Rock, the largest lagoon in South Korea; 'Hwajinpo', the largest lagoon in South Korea, with colorful scenery in front of Jukdo You can enjoy the view from Songji Lake Beach to the mysteriously shaped Seonang Rock.
When you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city center and enjoy a quiet view of the sea, this clear castle is the perfect place to relax. Let's go find the flavors of Goseong.
1. Three pieces of makguksu, chewy pork, and Goseong's âBaekchon Makguksuâ
Even in Goseong, it is in a remote place where you have to drive for a long time, but because of its reputation, it is crowded with cars from the entrance on the outer road where you enter the store. The space converted from a house resembles food, so it's clunky but lovely. White kimchi, radish kimchi, and pollack sashimi are served as side dishes, and when white kimchi is wrapped in soft pork, the rich pork juice and fresh kimchi flavor are perfect. The makguksu here comes with a separate dongchimi broth, so you can adjust it according to your own taste. The noodles are high in soba, so the more you chew them, the more savory they are, and the dongchimi is sour and moderately sweet. The strong flavor of the broth enhances the savory flavor of the noodles, so you can enjoy it all the way to the end.
â²Location: 10 Baekchon 1-gil, Toseong-myeon, Goseong-gun, Gangwon-do
â²Business hours: 10:30 to 17:00 (Deadline when materials are exhausted. Closed every Wednesday)
â²Price: 8,000 won for soba noodles (9,000 won for chunks), 25,000 won for pork
â²Testimonial (): I arrived at 11:30 on the weekend and waited for over an hour. The pork was cooked and served deliciously with pickled Chinese cabbage, radish, and pollack. I personally liked the dongchimi makguksu soba noodles because they were so unbreakable, and eating dongchimi with perilla oil made from the mill was savory and refreshing.
2. Delicious side dishes and a refreshing fresh cod soup, Goseong's 'Jebiho Restaurant'
If you go to Gejin Port, a small port in Sokcho, you can find restaurants bustling with visitors early on. The interior of this place is divided into a table and a seating area, and there is plenty of space between the seats. With just 12 seasonal side dishes prepared before the main menu comes out, it's possible to get rid of a bowl of rice. At Jebiho Restaurant, both spicy soup and simmered fish are delicious, but water bear and raw cod soup, which have their own flavors in winter, are also popular. Cod soup stewed with fresh creatures is immaculate and has a slightly spicy flavor of cheongyang pepper that relaxes the inside. Boiled fish, which boasts a sweet, spicy, and salty balance, is also delicious.
â²Location: 29, Geojinhang-gil, Gejin-eup, Goseong-gun, Gangwon-do
â²Business hours: 09:00 to 16:30 (closed every Tuesday)
â²Price: Raw cod soup 30,000 won, Dongtae-tang 20,000 won, braised sea bream 30,000 won, sea bream stew 30,000 won (all for 2 servings)
â²Testimonial (Shikigami Haramanse): It was incredibly delicious. I ate stewed fish and raw cod soup, but I'm really curious about other dishes, so I plan to eat them one by one in the future. All of the main dishes are delicious, but the side dishes are also really amazing. I hope it will be a restaurant that doesn't change for a long time. I ate it with admiration with my family. It was a good meal:)
3. Goseong's â40 Years of Traditional Omi Naengmyeonâ, an unforgettable 40-year tradition of hae-naengmyeon
In the Gangwon region, where North Korean food developed, there are many places where pollack or flounder is eaten or seasoned and served to customers. Pollock sashimi, which has a fresh and chewy texture, is a great ingredient to add to pork instead of kimchi or to enjoy on noodles as cold noodles. Omi Naengmyeon is a chewy Hamheung-style noodle topped with pollock sashimi, vegetables, and eggs. You can add sauce, add sugar, vinegar, and mustard to taste, then pour in a little cold broth and grate it. It's a good idea to check out the bibim-naengmyeon menu, and there's no spicy menu.
â²Location: 73, Ayajinhaebyeon-gil, Toseong-myeon, Goseong-gun, Gangwon-do
â²Business hours: 10:30 ~ 19:00 (B/T 15:00 ~ 16:30. Closed on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month)
â²Price: Naengmyeon 8,000 won, beef 20,000 won
â²Testimonial (Kim Ae-kyo, Shikigami): I went there believing that Kim Jun-hyeon introduced it as a gourmet restaurant. It has a spicy, sweet, and sour flavor and even contains sesame oil, so it's limitless.. The amount seems to be a little small. I recommend the double size:)
4. One bowl of rice crackling! Spicy steamed fish, Goseong 'Nokwon Restaurant'
A place with a shabby exterior but a twist of flavor. It's located near Goseong Cheonhakjeong, so it's a great place to go sightseeing together. This restaurant specializes in steamed fish, and is famous for its steamed fish platter made by steaming seasonal fish such as kodari, with a focus on stingrays. Ripe stingrays are very soft, so even if you slurp them with chopsticks, large chunks come off, so it's a good idea to spread plenty of spicy seasoning and eat them with white rice. Don't miss the sweet, ripe daikon radish. If you like noodles, keep in mind that if you add udon sari in advance, it blends well with the condiments and comes with it.
â²Location: 60 Gyoam-gil, Toseong-myeon, Goseong-gun, Gangwon-do
â²Business hours: 10:00 to 16:00
â²Price: Steamed platter (large) 55,000 won, (medium) 45,000 won, (small) 35,000 won, steamed stingray (large) 60,000 won, udon sari 2,000 won
â²Testimonial (Shikigin Hanayuri): Steamed stingray is a little more expensive, but the steamed platter also contains stingrays, so pick the steamed platter. It's really soft and delicious. Be sure to order udon first

I also feel that the food is more delicious. The brunch came out so pretty and the bread was delicious~ I'll visit again the next time I visit Goseong!
