Great food at affordable price! Queued for a quick lunch at Myeongdong. The queue was long, but because of the restaurant efficiency, it moved rather quickly! Food was served promptly after order was taken. Will definitely be there the next time when visiting Myeongdong!

Got to front of shop by 7:20am by which time a small queue had already formed. But the queue moved quickly enough and 20 mins later I was seated. It was a delicious meal, an excellent choice on a chilly March morning. The radish kimchi...More

If you want to taste one of Korean traditional dishes, try this. Seollongtang. I'd rather say a pot than a dish. It is a special Korean beep soup with a little of noodles. You can enjoy with rice and also with side dishes like kimchi...More

Visit this restaurant due to high rating. This restaurant always crowded especially during lunch or dinner hour. You may need to queue up for 10 to 15 minutes if you visit during peak hour. But you won't be disappointed as they serve tasty beef broth...More

Coming from SoCal, we have a lot of great Korean food, but even so, this place is soooo good. The broth has a delicate beef flavor, which is enhanced by the salt. The kimchi is also perfect - just the right balance of sweet, salty,...More

Arguably Seoul’s most famous neighbourhood 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
