More real Korea taste in this week by bnbhero
Samcheong-dong Sujebi 삼청동수제비
Sujebi is a simple dish enjoyed by Koreans young and old, and consists of hand-pulled dough dumplings in a warm soup with lots of potatoes, zucchinis, and other delicious ingredients. One of the most famous restaurants in Seoul where you can try delicious, affordable and authentic sujebi Is actually in Samcheong-dong, and is actually called Samcheong-dong Sujebi!
There is always a very long line of people waiting outside the restaurant, but there are many seats inside and turnover is very fast, so be patient! The dish is served in a small clay pot with kimchi, which is made fresh daily at the restaurant.
Samcheongdong Sujebi is very popular with Koreans, so we recommend you try to avoid the lunch rush! 11.30-1.30 is the peak time, so go a little earlier or later. It is also very popular with Japanese and Chinese tourists!
Other popular items include dondongju, a traditional Korean liquor made from makkeoli, as well as their pancakes. (Gamja jeon is a potato pancake that doesn’t use any other ingredients!)
The inside is fairly cramped with lots of small tables and the menus are printed on the wall in clear, legible font to make it easy to read! The portions can be a bit intimidating however, so be sure to go hungry!
Sujebi (7000 won) is served in a bowl for one person or in a jar for two persons. Gamjajeon (감자전, 7000 won) and Dongdongju (동동주, 3000 won).
