Galbi Set Menu must be shared by Two

I agree with all the good reviews for this restaurant. My husband and I order the Galbi Set Menu which comes with lots of side dishes including a miso-based tofu soup/stew, a number of banchan to be wrapped in lettuce with, of course, the galbi that was cooked at the table. The galbi portion was... read more

Loved the Galbi. Easy to order and very fast service at reasonable prices. A great place to eat and take a break while visiting the fortress.

Great experience in Korean food. Excellent service (quick, attentative) but almost no English. The menu includes English "names" but you may not know what they actually mean (and there are no pictures to make to choice simpler). The food, however, is delicious and there is a lot of it. If you want to try Korean food, there is hardly a... More

When you arrive ask for a table on the ondol floor next to the window because the view on the fortress is a nice scenery to try galbitang ! I wasn't very impressed by galbitang but it is nice to eat. Nobody could speak English but the women there were very nice and helpful as long as you great them... More

This is a BBQ place, I traveled alone and had to order about portions for 2 (about US$48) for the marinated beef. I was there at 2pm so it was only half full (cause I figured they would probably have more willingness to service a single customer) I have not tried much BBQ in Seoul but the food and variety...

Located near the fortress wall where the Hwahongmun Gate (northern water gate) is, we followed the scent of grilled meat and found ourselves in front of this restaurant. Seeing a queue, we figured this was the place to have a meal. Do note that there is no English menu. Sign and pointing language is extremely important here. We just pointed... More

N37°17.259' E127.01.003' Suwon is famous for a local variety, whereby the regular meat dish is given a salty seasoning. In a quiet area next to the northern water gate in the fortress wall lies Yeonpo Galbi, known for its galbi meat. Galbi meat is rather expensive and the jeongsik (set menu), which include several small fish, vegetable and gimchi dishes,... More

This restaurant is conveniently located close to the fortress walls. We noticed that tourists often order BBQ which is expensive and it's not the most popular choice among the locals. It seems that the specialty here is the short rib soup. At least it was the dish that everyone was having while we where there. We had it and it... More

We went there as it was recommended in Lonely Planet Seoul. It was right near the fortress wall (close to the archery). As often in Korea even thou it was a pricier restaurant it does have a very modest look. You could choose between normal tables and sitting on the floor. The menu was only in Korean and the staff...
