We ordered just the pancakes. It came with 4 different accompliments. If you are familiar with fried oyster pancakes, this is the premium version. Apart from oysters, it had clams, dried prawns and spring onions in it. Different from the usual but nice. It has been around for generations. That is in itself, testimony to its main-stay dish.

We went tot he restaurant with great anticipation after reading the reviews and watching plenty of shows featuring the restaurant. Unfortunately, I really didn't think it was worth the price or the travel. The pajeon didn't have great structure and fell apart almost to the touch.

However, when I am with guests who are visiting in Busan for... More

It takes 10 to 15 minutes walking from Dongnae metro station to arrive to the restaurant. It's tucked in an alley so pay attention where you turn. The restaurant has a nice decor and prices are above average, but we expected so, since they are supposed to have the best "pajeon" (Korean green onion pancake). We went at the end... More

We only ordered signature Dongnae pancake and some side dish, and it's really costly. Although this restaurant is a must try for first time Busan visitor, I will not be coming back again.

I found out about Dongnaehalmae Pajeon from the Busan Tourism website and a video by BadaTV.  Being a foodie, it was one of the reasons which brought me to Busan on my trip to Korea.   The anticipation was very high as I and my friend took a walk from the Dongnae subway station to the restaurant. The restaurant was... More
