You will first order from the electronic vending machine. Lucky for us, it has english names and pictures. Then, get your plain water, either hot or cold, from the prepared dispenser. Then grab a seat, either at the bar or at the small tables by the wall.
Remember to keep your receipt. They will call the number on the top of the receipt. You will need to learn a little how the number is called so that you can raise your hand to receive your orders.
There’s free flow kimchi before you have your main meal. This is a common sight at any restaurants you go in Korea. Side dishes are served and refillable.
Anchovy Noodle (Myeolchi Gugsu) (KRW3,000)
Thin noodles served in hot and clear anchovy soup. It’s anchovy soup is rather appetising which is light but at the same time has the anchovy taste. Simple yet delicious. You can have it spicy or non spicy.
Warm noodles with soy sauce (Ganbi Gugsu) (KRW4,000)
Warm thin noodles mixed with minced pork and cooked vegetables in soy sauce. It’s a little like bibimbab but with noodle and not rice. It’s soy sauce is not very salty with sesame oil taste. It’s a delicious dry noodle. You can also have it spicy.
Dumpling with red chili sauce (Gochugileummul Mandu) (KRW4,000)
Tender pork dumpling in a little chili oil. It’s a little spicy but you will want to dip the chili oil to get a better taste of the dumpling. Otherwise, it’s a little plain to eat on its own, especially after you have the dry noodles. The sesame soy sauce taste will cover the dumpling taste.
Pork Rice Ball (Gogijumeogbab) (KRW1,500)
Seasoned rice wrapped with some green chili, fried crisp and minced pork, then coated with seaweed slices. It’s a tasty onigiri. However, the minced pork are very few. You could not really bite into them.
They have many outlets but the once we went was at Hongdae area.
