The sun rises first on the Korean Peninsula throughout the year, and “Homigot,” named after the famous temple corresponding to a tiger's tail due to its topography, is a place familiar as an underwater statue that seems to hold the rising sun in the palm of your hand. Also famous are the “Homi Peninsula Coastal Trail,” where you can enjoy trekking on the sea across Yeongil Bay, the easternmost tip of the Korean Peninsula; “Yeongildae,” where you can enjoy a night view of POSCO from a marine pavilion meaning to greet the sun; and “Kowloon Japanese House Street,” where Japanese people came in and formed a place of residence during the period of Japanese domination.

The Korean beef gomguk soup, which continues to be cooked at the entrance of the store, is served as soon as you order it. The characteristic is that it contains plenty of chewy head meat in the thick, white soup. The tender texture of the beef that melts and disappears even though it has been cut into large pieces is excellent. If you dip the pickled onions served as a side dish in soy sauce, you can enjoy it refreshingly.

A restaurant ranked as a sashimi master for its patented sashimi broth. The Choi Kang Dal Figure Festival, which contains plenty of abalone, sea cucumber, conch, and seafood, is popular. When the sashimi is served, the point is to mix the sauce as if pressing it with a spoon until it turns red nicely. Afterwards, you can add 2 to 3 scoops of ice sashimi broth and grate it. The characteristic of the broth is that it is not irritating because it is flavored with only natural ingredients. It's also nice to be able to enjoy the warm soup by serving it with spicy hot water.
