Simple menu, fast lunch service and great tasting food. I had the beef soup with dumplings and kimchee on side. The tables have Plexi glass partitions for the Covid-19 precaution. You pay up front with cash or bank card.
No surprise why there are two locations in a 2 block radius! Best noodles I’ve had in Korea, tons of locals and quick and easy.
You are expected to go in and out quickly, and masks and other health precautions are a must.
Definitely must try when you visit Myeongdong. I personally don't really eat dumplings but this one was really good and tasty! Order a tray with a bowl of noodles to share because the portion was really huge! It can get really packed so be expected...to wait awhile for a table.More
The dumpling is absolutely tasty and one should not miss if they visit Seoul. The dumplings are different from those in Hong Kong, Japan or China. These steamed dumplings are healthy to eat. The noodles are also a must try with delicious kimchi.
Accidentally found this Michelin star restaurant while shopping in Myeongdong, and the table was available so we tried. The restaurant cleverly serves only 5-6 main dishes, so we selected some of them, they were very tasty.
I'm a dumpling lover and the dumplings certainly did not disappoint on my first night in Seoul!
You can tell how meaty the fillings are and the texture of the skin in the photos. Have been dreaming of these dumplings for years since I saw...them on Tumblr. My dreams have came true!
The partner enjoyed the hot bowl of noodles, however the serving is too much for me. If you're going there specially for the dumplings like me, I suggest ordering the dumplings and you can request a bowl of rice for the staff :)
P.S. the kimchi here is very spicy! Take at your own risk! :PMore
Maybe there are better tastes. But, the overall experience here is above all others.
Even if this restaurant opened decades ago, it's clean and not expensive. Employees are kind. Queuing doesn't take long.
You can order free rice. Also, if your table has one kalguksu...per person, additional guksu(noodle) is free.
The only thing I don't like is their kimchi is too spicy even for locals. haha.More

Myeongdong / Namdaemun
Arguably Seoul’s most famous neighborhood 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 neighborhood’s popularity, as well as its close proximity to other popular sights and neighborhoods, makes it one of Seoul’s most popular places to stay.
