After this year's unusually hot summer, the season has come when even viewers are attracted to
soju, which will warm the body in chilly weather, rather than the refreshing beer that made
them cool. Here are some
soju snack restaurants around the country that will cheer up the pretentiousness of a friend who says, âLife is bitter, soju is sweetâ! Let's convey the heat of a cup of soju to a cold body and mind with a soju snack that will satisfy
everyone from young people in their 20s to those in their 50s.
1. I'm amazed by the cool soup ~ Cheongpa-dong âYangpyeong Fresh Fish Spicy Soupâ
Cheongpa-dong 'Yangpyeong Spicy Tang' has been loved for 50 years for its consistent spicy soup flavor. It's one of the best places in Seoul where they have a spicy freshwater fish bath.
There is an aquarium in front of the store, so you can see fresh fish for yourself. Note that the types of spicy soup vary slightly depending on the fish caught. The spicy soup contains buttercups, various vegetables, well-preserved soy sauce, and freshwater shrimp, but the earthy smell of freshwater fish is caught
once, so you can enjoy it without any reluctance. When the soup boils, they pour out the homemade rice paste and add it, and the chewy flavor is a delicacy. After eating sujebi, a thicker, thicker
soup is also a good addition to soju. The hot spicy soup and savory deep-fried
squid go well not only for food, but also as a snack for soju, making it a popular place for dinners. Note that homemade sari is best enjoyed when
it's first cooked, so it's a good idea to order it in advance.

2. A reason to be proud of North Korean food , Hapjeong 'Dongmu Meal'
Chef Yoon Jong-cheol, a chef from Okryu-gwan , Hamgyung-do, North Korea, proudly cooks âDongmu Mealâ in Hapjeong. It is a North Korean food specialty store located in a quiet alley just off Hapjeong's main street . The most popular dish of Dongmu Meal is âNorth Korean cold noodles,â which features noodles with a high soba content and a refreshing soup like dongchimi soup . At first, you may be puzzled by the mild and unpungent taste, but the unique flavor you feel when you eat it is subtly addictive . The perilla in the cold noodle soup bursts in the mouth and has a fun texture. âOrigukbap,â which has a hot soup, has a similar flavor to chicken gomguk soup, and children can eat it without any reluctance , and the sweet and sour âbeef sashimiâ is a popular menu that is popular among customers because it is easy to enjoy as an accompaniment. Please note that you can only enjoy âShinsengroâ if you make a reservation one day in advance.

3. When I went to eat it, once in seagull meat and twice in the skin of a seagull, the âGreat persimmon spearâ in Daejeon
âDaegam Makchangâ is located in Jeonmin-dong, Daejeon, where you can enjoy a satisfying meal with hearty side dishes and high quality makchang. It is a local restaurant recommended by Daejeon residents who are popular as a hideout for KAIST students as a place to have a dinner party for researchers in the research complex. The restaurant's most popular menu is âGorgoru Mudum,â where you can enjoy everything from savory small pork fillets to chewy pork ribs, thick neck meat, and pork skin. Since giblets are prepared and seasoned directly at the store every day, there is no peculiar smell, and you can enjoy them even more deliciously by wrapping them in sauce, mozzarella cheese, or mushroom water developed by the owner himself. Side dishes such as a cool hot pot with offal, sheep, and tempura leaves, savory cheonggukjang, and a memorable bento are also popular dishes recommended by regulars. In particular, the chewy texture of the shell is easy to accompany soju even after a meal, so many people are looking for it.

I tried all of the offal makchang here for the first time, and it was really delicious. I was expecting this flavor from other places, but I was surprised that it wasn't at all. In particular, the shell is divine. The seagull meat is delicious and the service is good.
4. Soju on pasta? I'm going to blow
my knee! Seocho âGompochaâ
If you go straight for about 5 minutes from Exit
5 of Nambu Terminal Station, you can find âGompochaâ, an indoor car
with an underground floor and 1 floor. They sell a variety of snacks at reasonable prices,
including a hearty portion of pasta, and are very popular. Gompocha's signature menu is pasta that feels like âcream pasta â and is accented by
fried eggs placed on top of savory cream sauce for any number of people. The cream is so thick and thick that it is also known as âHaejang pasta,â and it is unrivaled in popularity due to its generous amount for the price. The combination
of soju and pasta may seem a bit strange, but it's
especially popular among women in their 2's to 30's because they can enjoy pasta until late. Other popular dishes include âseafood olive pasta,â which contains plenty of seafood , spicy chicken feet, and yukhoe.
The interior is cramped, the tables are small, and there are many days when they are full, so it is recommended to make a reservation in advance when visiting as a group.

you eat one dish and inhale the second!
5. On the day I want to be comforted, my own hideout, Itaewon 'Missouri'
âMissouriâ, located in Haebangchon, Itaewon, is a cooking bar that uses fresh seasonal ingredients. Missouri, which means âtown of taste and alcohol,â is a small bar centered around a bar placed in front of a clean, white-toned open
kitchen. The small interior has a
relaxed atmosphere that's not awkward even if you visit alone, and you can have a casual conversation with the boss on days when there aren't many customers. Missouri has a
daily menu that changes daily and a fixed menu that can be found all the time, and âperilla missouri-tang â is the most popular among the fixed menus. Missouri-tang is a soup dish with perilla powder in a budae jige-like soup with plenty of vegetables and ham, and has a savory yet refreshing flavor
. The flavor is not irritating, so it's easy to eat the soup over and over again. The octopus-shaped sausage and salty mentaiko soup, which are offered as basic snacks, are also popular.
Note that regular soju is not available in Missouri; instead, distilled soju, Huayo, Highball, and Hallasan

6. 'Hospitality' in Busan with spicy-grated natural white goldfish sauce
âHospitalityâ, located near Dongnae Station in Busan, is a bar that is rapidly gaining popularity due to its colorful visual golbang sauce and
komak sauce. For entertainment, there is an iPad menu, so you can order while looking at pictures of the menu. The popular menu representing entertainment is ânatural white bone marinated and wrappedâ, which
offers vegetables mixed with red, somen, boiled squid, and whole white bone. For customers who want to take pictures, they are initially served in a barrel and brought back after
the photo shoot is over. The sweet and sour vegetable sauce has a crunchy texture and goes well with the plump and chewy white bones, and the rich flavor of the slightly spicy sauce is great for grating noodles. We also recommend a cup of shochu
with golbang sauce and a hot and refreshing finish with the standard egg soup. âKomak miso
and somenâ is another popular menu item with natural golbang sauce. Note that mussel soup with a refreshing broth served with a salty sauce
of komak is the most preferred combination among people who enjoy soju.

7. Gangneung's 'Thumbs Up Food Stall', where locals also line up to eat
Gangneung's âThumbs Up Food Stallâ is a place where not only travelers but also locals line up to eat. It's an indoor food stall that opens at 5 p.m., but there are people waiting even before that. The two
most popular menus are âpork sashimi
â and âkomak sauce.â
Before the main menu appeared, about 10 to 11 side dishes were served, and they are very friendly.
The âkomak sauce,â which is a well-groomed komak topped with sauce and cheongyang pepper, boasts a hearty amount of komak that is not worth 30,000 won. Normally, along with komak sauce, you put rice in komak and sauce, and order bibimbap along with the sauce, but the combination of the right seasoning and the spicy flavor
of the spicy cheongyang pepper caught the taste buds of many people. Another signature dish, âYuksashimi,â is a thick slice of Korean beef that has a savory flavor, and is
served with a refreshing pear that comes with it for a more refreshing mouthfeel. It is said that the available menu varies slightly from day to day,
so if you are curious about a menu other than komak miso, it's a good idea to call ahead.

Great side.
8. An essential course for Daegu people on a rainy day, Daegu's 'Taeyungjip'
is the most popular food stall village in Bukseong-ro, Daegu. There are only two items on the menu here, âudonâ and âgrilled yakiniku,â but they are loved by many people because the combination is good, the amount is plentiful, and the price is low. All of the food stalls in the area sell similar
menus , but the first and
most popular place people go to is âTaeung Restaurant.â The characteristic of grilled yakiniku is that pork marinated in soy sauce is placed on a grill and grilled over a briquette fire at the same time that the outer surface is slightly charred. The salty and sweet yakiniku, which has a strong aroma of fire, can be enjoyed even more deliciously when eaten with pickled onions, which are
provided as standard. Udon has elastic
noodles and a sharp soup that makes the filling hot, so it's a great place to enjoy with soju on a chilly day. They say you can only pay in cash, so it's a good idea to
prepare in advance .

9. Itaewon's 'Classic House', a place where everyone becomes a regular once they enter
âClassic Houseâ is a bar in Itaewon that is popular for its stylish interior and clean plating. It is also a popular place for
many people because of the advantages of being able to enjoy yardle's savory yukhoe and fresh salmon with a chewy texture in one plate. At regular restaurants, you can find fresh menus that you can't find anywhere else, such as âNagasaki Samgyetang,â where boiled chicken is placed in a sharp Nagasaki soup made by simmering vegetables and seafood broth over a fire, and âcheese
cream omelette .â The cheese cream omelette has a rich flavor due to the combination of
grano padano cheese, cream sauce based on gorgonzola cheese, and omelet. Classic restaurants offer a variety of unique, intriguing menus with a combination of
unconnected menus. They say they won't sell
salmon menus from October, so be sure to check it out when you visit.

10. 'Sansugapsan' in Euljiro, a wise mayor
âSansugapsanâ in Euljiro, where you can enjoy different types of sundae. It's a long-established shop that makes proper abai sundae containing seonji and glutinous rice, and is already famous among sundae enthusiasts. The most popular menu item is chewy daechang sundae and âassorted sundae, â where you can enjoy fresh meat. Assorted sundae are generously served with finely boiled entrails, such as badger gammu, baby pork tongue, etc., and the top-quality
soy sauce, which has a chewy texture and color, is particularly popular. You can enjoy the chewy texture and rich flavor of the head meat that has been chilled cold,
and you can enjoy a different texture due to the thin and thick texture of daichang sundae. The immaculate sundae soup contains sauce, but it's not salty and light, so it's not burdensome to eat it with assorted sundae. Please note that the sundae set meal comes with sundae guts and pork in sundae soup, and those who visit alone can enjoy it little by
little. Also, those who don't like sundae offal can ask for sundae only when ordering.
