“Those enormous North Korean style dumplings are a must-have”
Reviewed June 5, 2010

Sadong Myeonok, an institution at Insa-dong is a busy, no-frills restaurant that serves deservedly popular mandu-jeongol, which consists of four giant homemade North Korean style dumplings cooked in casserole. It had all sorts of stuff in it; dumpling, kim-chi, 5-mushrooms, 5-vegetables, beef, noodles, even an egg. After letting everything simmer on your table for 5 minutes, mix everything and you have a stew-like concoction. The soup was rich, savory, and spicy. And, oh yes, the dumplings are enormous.

Though they are also specialised in bulgogi, one can also try their egg pancake panfried with marine products and green onions (haemul-pajeon).

You can’t miss an ajumma or two making mandu in the window. The service is fast, the food was cheap and above average, the portion was more than adequate. Sadong Myeonok is definitely a place to check out

“A must-go to this famous and informal restaurant”
Reviewed March 11, 2009

This is a famous, but friendly and unfancy restaurant in Insadong district which is famous for its large dumplings. On the menu they show it as 20,000 won for two people, but they'll serve you a half portion for 10,000. There's an English menu. If you haven't had Korean dumplings you should have them, although the other dishes on the menu are great, too.
