Delicious Sujebi!

First time at this restaurant. Had to join the crowd in the queue. The soup base of the sujebi is tasty and delicious. Each serving is big enough for 2 to share. The pancake not bad too. Two types of kimchi are served with the order. Well worth the special trip to visit this... read more

Famous and popular with locals. Recommended by a guesthouse manager. The Sujebi, which is hand-pulled noodle, is the specialty. It came in a seafood broth with clams. I also ordered a seafood pancake. Both came fast after ordering. There is no English menu but the waitress was able to speak some mandarin. I used the tried-and-true method: get up and... More

I have known this restaurant since 1997. It was just a small local restaurant but presented me the beautiful taste of Sujebi. Until that day, I had not thought that Sujebi was such a tasty food. It becomes famous at this moment and I have to wait over 10 minutes even at 3:00 pm. However I always want to wait... More

Excellent kimchi and pancake! I have never been a big fan of pancakes, but this totally changed my view. The service here is also one of the best I have received in Seoul. The wait staff knew we couldn't speak Korean, so she (in her limited English) told us what to order and delivered everything with a big smile and... More

We chanced upon this restaurant after ending our Bukchon view no. 8 walk. We ended up opposite this restaurant and decide to give it a try. Sujebi is hand-torn noodles in broth and it's similar to the Chinese mee hoon kueh. The taste are different thought. Perhaps we had this sujebi in a drizzling afternoon... the food was delicious. Really... More

For someone from Singapore or somewhere nearby, this sujebi dish isn't something new at all. It's basically "ban mian" with soup and potato soup, etc. The taste of the soup isn't as good as, say soup made with "ikan bilis" (dry anchovies) that is easily available in many food courts in Singapore. The only thing one must try is their... More

went during off peak hours and there wasn't any queue. only ordered the sujebi as we are not very hungry. both the dough and soup is good, though might not be to the liking of people who prefers food with a heavier taste. i like to throw in the kimchi into the soup to add a little spice into it.

Recommended by a staff member at Rakkojae. There are long lines during meal times but the Sujebi (hand-torn dough) served here is deserving of its good reputation for serving up thin and flavoursome sujebi in a rich clam, potato & seaweed broth. Their seafood pancake is packed to the brim with various seafood and leeks and yet remains light and... More
