The best Sujebi I have eaten until now, except my wife's one.

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... read 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.

Feature food in menu is doughball soup and seafood pancake. Comfort food and very traditional....no meat at all so if you look for bbq kind, don?t come.....

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

The sujaebe served here is similar to the pan mee we have back home in Malaysia. But the broth or the soup is simply yummy. There's clams, potatoes, onions, cucumber and top with shreded seaweed. On a cold day after walking for hours in Gyeongbokgung, this is simply food for the soul. Yep, you can't miss this place its' somewhere... More

My husband and I love this place. It is always packed with a line out the door at lunchtime. If you are looking for a place to enjoy a long lingering meal with attentive service, this is not the place. But if you want a delicious, warm, filling, Korean folk dish look no further. The sujaebe (a broad noodle soup,... More
