1. A small Chinatown in Yeonnam-dong , 'haha '
Haha, a small Chinese restaurant in Yeonnam-dong, is a restaurant that gradually became famous among ordinary customers after gaining word of mouth mainly from nearby Hwagyo restaurants. It is located in Little Chinatown in Yeonnam-dong. Steamed dumplings with thin blood and a soft texture, fried pork, and stir-fried eggplant are the most popular dishes. In particular, the stir-fried eggplant made by stir-frying fried eggplant with a sweet and spicy sauce is worthy of being called the signature dish of this place. When you take a bite, the crispy surface and the moist juice of the eggplant oozes out, and the flavor and texture are excellent.
Note, however, that there are no separate types of noodles available.

2. Memorable croquette flavor , âOgun Handmade Croquette â
âOgun Suze Croquetteâ is a small croquette shop located in Yeonnam-dong Alley. Twice a day at 12 or 4 o'clock, it is crowded with people who want to buy hot, freshly fried croquettes. The secret to this place's flavor lies in the bread crumbs made by baking the bread directly at the store, crushing it, and then deep-frying it again. This process reduced greasiness and made good use of the crunchy texture, further enhancing the savory flavor. A popular menu item is the potato croquette, which contains mashed potatoes with a soft texture inside of hot bread. The ice cream croquette, which is a unique menu, is also popular.
â²Shikigami Vigmonk's review: Well… they're all delicious, but if I had to choose, kimchi and potato croquettes would be the best!! The potato has a much better texture than I thought. The inside was crushed so softly that the crunchiness and soft texture were added, so it was so Tasnayong â²Business hours: 12:00 ~ Pansojin-si â²Location: 62, Donggyo-ro 27-gil, Mapo-gu, Seoul â²Price range: 1,000 won to 2,000 won
3. âCoyote Saloon Pizza & Bar â, the chewy taste of dough
Reminiscent of a small bar in the US, Coyote Saloon in Yeonnam-dong is a place where you can enjoy beer along with pizza. Coyotes are âHwadok pizzaâ and âgreen grape salad,â which are baked in a brick oven with plenty of toppings and cheese on top of the dough as soon as they are ordered Saloon's most popular menu. Enjoy the green grape salad even more deliciously if you put ricotta cheese and green grapes on the chewy flatbread that comes with it and wrap it like a wrap You can do it.
â²Shikigami Yesung's review: The pizza is very tasty. I wasn't expecting the green grape salad, but the bread that comes with it is absolutely delicious.
