I first tried the bibimnaengmyeon in 2012 and back for the soup version this year. It was really a thumbs up! I love adding the chili into the soup as I preferred spicy food. The noodles were really chewy and you have to really slurp them up instead of trying to bite them. Definitely will be back to try their... More

Quite a large restaurant. The staff do not speak any English but the menu has photos to make ordering easy. The cold noodles were very good. The meat was a little overcooked. Good size serving. Was cheap too.

They're famous more for their cold noodle dishes, but their "Mandoo guk" dumpling soup is the best I've had. Big dumplings, nice broth. The somewhat sweet red chili at the table isn't really intended for the dumplings, but I like to put it on them

This tasted as good as I remembered, more than 3 years later. Still mostly frequently by locals, the noodles were deliciously chewy and remains one of my favourite things to eat in Seoul.

You'll find tasty Korean noodles here. The kitchen of this restaurant surely knows what it's cooking. The food is really good

The cold noodles here were excellent and I went back thrice over the course of my stay. Service is brisk and efficient but they only speak Korean though you can get by since they have pictures in the menu. I particularly love the drink they serve post-noodles which I have yet to identify but it was warm and comforting. Comes... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Myeongdong / Namdaemun
Arguably Seoul’s most famous neighbourhood and undoubtedly one of its most popular, Myeongdong takes shopping and eating to new heights, with hundreds of shops, restaurants, and cafes all stacked on top of one another. The rise in popularity of Korean cosmetics, fashion, and more has made this area a must-see for visitors who come and marvel at Myeongdong’s often frenetic pace and energy. Lotte and Shinsaegae’s massive department stores are also popular draws for both Korean and luxury products. The department stores, just like Myeongdong’s streets, are crowded around the clock. Myeongdong’s many street food carts are also immensely popular for their inexpensive and quirky offerings (French-fry-encrusted corn dogs, anyone?). The neighbourhood’s popularity, as well as its close proximity to other popular sights and neighbourhoods, makes it one of Seoul’s most popular places to stay.
