korean food / seoul / Full of youthful enthusiasm! 5 Best Restaurants at the entrance of Hongik University – 2909

At the peak of non-face-to-face classes, the area in front of the university district was so quiet that the word “sluggish” was appropriate. The commercial map seemed to change as it was, but for a while, the popularity of Korea’s largest commercial district was gradually heating up. Every restaurant and cafe is bustling with customers and crowds, as if compensating for years of absence. Here are 5 of the best restaurants at the entrance of Hongdae, where the youthfulness of youth oozes everywhere.

1. A New Okonomiyaki, “Whoa”

A place that is very popular for its instagrammable okonomiyaki. The bar table seats are popular because you can see them cooking right in front of you. The signature menu, “Tomato Yamaimo Okonomiyaki,” has a mild flavor using Andong horse mackerel without using flour dough. The combination with tomato sauce is fresh. “Yakisoba,” which is flavored with classic teriyaki sauce, is also popular.

â–²Review (Shikigami 540386): I like wheat flour, but I couldn’t eat it because it didn’t work well for me, but is Hongdae Uwa delicious because it’s okonomiyaki made by kneading mackerel? But it was really delicious and the atmosphere was full of fighting, so it was nice.

It’s a very nostalgic place with an interior that captures the scenery of a makgeolli restaurant in front of a university district in the 90s. A “bansang” menu that combines various snacks is essential, but the most basic “bansang 1” menu consists of spicy chicken leg meat with cheongyang pepper along with tofu, kimchi, and pork sashimi. The “Cheese Potato Zen,” which contains plenty of mozzarella cheese, also goes well with makgeolli.

A place run by Japanese bakery master Kobayashi Susumu Patissier. It is a bakery that has been loved for a long time for its soft and moist melon bread and yakisoba bread, the national snack of Japan. If you want to enjoy a Japanese bread dough that is both chewy and soft, I recommend it. Jambon beurre, salt bread, and blue shrimp baguettes that have been aged only here are also popular.

â–²Price: Zambonbeur 4,800 won, yakisoba bread 2,800 won, matcha melon bread 2,700 won

â–²Review (Shikigin Panheyu): I wasn’t expecting much of matcha sorapan because I was betrayed by the puffy bread in the past, so it was nice that the bread was so soft and the matcha cream was sweet and rich? Yakisoba bread is a moderately salty bread that you can expect..!

4. “Kami Udon,” Sanuki-style udon at a reasonable price

A udon specialty store where you can enjoy authentic Sanuki-style udon from Japanese chefs. Although it is a high quality udon, the advantage is that it is offered at a reasonable price like a commercial area in front of a school. “Gake” udon, which uses soup without artificial seasonings and homemade tsuyu, blends well with chewy noodles and a slightly rich broth. The popular dish, “bugake,” is a style where you grate it with tsuyu, and you can best feel the chewiness of udon noodles.

â–²Review (Shikigami Shake It><): It’s not a joke about elasticity when it comes to picking noodles on the fly!!!! Even though I emphasized the importance of noodles on TV, I didn’t understand it; I think I understood it when I tried it myself

5. “Hakatanaka,” a Japanese white rice that’s as comfortable as a lone foodie

A small Japanese-style white rice specialty store. You can enjoy cute Japanese-style white rice in a comfortable wood-toned interior. The signature menu, “Takana Teishoku,” consists of hearty rice, grilled mackerel, chicken nanban, donburi, soup, and yuzu pepper. The “Hakatanaka Teishoku,” which consists of oroshi pork cutlet topped with ground radish, stewed mackerel, mentaiko, and pork belly, is also popular. Rice can be refilled for free, so it’s a good idea to check it out.
