I had my first meal in Seoul here. Soothing comfort food, and a short walk from my hotel through a fun neighborhood. The service was highly efficient and the food was very good.

Your choice is limited here: noodles and/or dumplings, but the quality of both items is amazing. This will definitely warm you up when it’s cold outside.

Mandu dumplings and chopped noodles seemed to be our favorite items and this restaurant specializes in these dishes. Restaurant actually feels more cafeteria style and requires payment immediately after ordering before the food is served. Decent and well priced establishment. We knocked off a star...More

The menu was simple, the service was quick, the food was adequate. I sat down, ordered and paid right away. Within 1 minute I had food on my table. It was a good place for a quick bit.

Food comes out so fast I wasn't even done paying and the food was already out. The kimchi is really good but will leave a garlic taste in your mouth all day

There are only 3 items on the menu. Dumplings - very thin skin, huge portion. Noodles - hot soup noodles with small wontons and mince pork. The noodles were so light and fluff. Cold noodles - with spicy sauce. Didn’t enjoy this so much as...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
