Nice Porridge

The restaurant is located near to my hotel. I tried the abalone porridge which is nice. I especially liked the octopus side dish.

A good breakfast place for porridge or light meals anytime in the day. Location is opposite CitiBank.

The food is good and the portion is just nice for breakfast. The location of the restaurant is in Mydeong and is very near to our hotel. Will visit again if we ever go to Seoul.

This place was right opposite our hotel. It was freezing cold in Seoul so we came here for breakfast to warm our stomached. They only serve congee but it tasted so good. We came twice during our stay in Seoul. English menu available and staff very friendly.

We had snow crab and abalone porridge. They were nice porridge but it's average when compared to other restaurants in Korea that serve similar porridge. However, if you don't have time to try porridge elsewhere in Korea, you should try this place.

Although it is kind of pricey but I enjoyed it. Not the normal Porridge you would have in Singapore. Love the ginseng chicken porridge most. The service staff are kind and very polite. A must visit place if you want to a non-spicy or non-kimchi related food in korea. Haha ~

I had a one day stop over at Seoul before flying to Mongolia. It's just one day, and first time to Seoul, I decided to go all Koreans. No American or British breakfast! So I came to Migabon, located in Myeong Dong. With some help of Google, I managed to find the location of the restaurant, not too difficult. And... More

The porridge was simple, with very nice banchan accompanying it. I chanced upon this place on the second floor of a building. It is a welcoming change from the spicy meaty food we had on other days. Also comforting for those with weak & sensitive stomachs in a cold winter climate. I ordered mushroom abalone porridge while my husband ordered... More

Breakfast at home. That's how I felt when we had breakfast at Migabon. Felt as if I never left home or the hotel for that matter. I believe those who served us were the owners of the restaurant as the service was very personable and quick too. We ordered 3 sets of porridge meals - pumpkin, abalone, shrimp. And I... More

Staying in Myeongdong / Namdaemun

Neighborhood Profile
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.
