Another great Korean restaurant in Insadong catering for traditional Korean food. I like the atmosphere the local dishes and the overall local feeling. Good place to eat in Insadong.

We chanced upon this place and were attracted by the huge dumpings being cooked in the window. A great find! Madnuguk (dumpling soup) for KRW7000 with lots of extras filled us up nicely and it was great food. Low key/old-fashioned interior, not much english spoken...More

This is restaurant which was frequented mostly by the locals & I was glad that my local tour specialist brought us here as they are famous for their extra large mandu, naengmyeon (cold noodles) & haesaemul pajeon (seafood pancake). We ordered their bulgogi as well,...More

Nice lunch but disappointed becausee had higher expectations. We had dumpling soup, bulgogi, and seafood pancake. Soup was good, not great - had better (more flavor) at other restaurants during the trip. Bulgogi was good, favorite dish. Pancake was a let down - plenty of...More

Nestled between Jongno and Samcheongdong, this small
neighborhood offers a crash course in various aspects
of Korean culture. Rows of shops display traditional
Korean goods such as pottery and earthenware, crafts,
fans, and more, making it a popular spot for souvenir
shopping. The Ssamziegil shopping complex in
particular has become a local institution for its
unique spiral layout and the many boutique shops
