1. The appeal of the chewy yet chewy cuttlefish, âOkgyeong Inegane Dried Fishâ
A restaurant located within Sindang Central Market. It’s a place that mainly sells dried fish, but the cuttlefish menu became popular on social media, and it became a place where people line up to eat. They sell stewed, stewed, and grilled fish with well-dried fish. The signature grilled cuttlefish is famous for the visual appearance of plump cuttlefish piled up on a plate. It is moderately dried and has an excellent chewy yet chewy texture without being chewy. It goes well with cheongyang chili mayonnaise sauce, which is generously sprinkled with red pepper powder.

In winter, mincemeat soup is also quite good.
2. âHoneycomb noodlesâ, argon noodles filled with the blue sea
The three owners of famous restaurants, Golden Pig Restaurant, Montan, and Trak, joined forces to launch this restaurant. It’s a place that came to mind as soon as it opened, with a retro vibe and unique menu that came to mind as soon as it opened. The signature âArgoni Kalguksuâ has a chewy yet savory innards that have been thawed and thawed from pollack to catch the fishy flavor, then put it in the kishimen noodles and boil it in kishimen noodles.

It opened its doors with the concept of âSindang-dongâ after a place called âSindang-dong,â which originated from Mudangchon on the east side of Gwanghwamun. The exterior, decorated with amulets and gold strings, is fun even before entering the store because the entrance is unknown. The interior is decorated with bright objects and a dreamy atmosphere in dark lighting, making you feel like you have come to another world. A great place to enjoy twelve signature cocktails and tapas inspired by the Chinese zodiac. We also recommend welcoming the new year with a ârabbitâ cocktail, which has a pleasant aroma of yeast and a savory flavor, for the New Year’s Eve.
