We stumble upon a bindaeduk (Korean Pancake) stall along Jong No Sam Ga (Jong No 3rd Street) which is just stone throw away from our hostel. It is actually green bean pancakes ground up and mixed with bean sprouts and seafood fried in oil.
Ajusshi (uncle) was too busy to entertain us, the english speaking aliens because it was full house inside! I spotted working men having a biteful of bindaeduk with shoju sipped or shot from a small glass.
Communication problem is a big headache here. Sometimes it is hard to get your food if you can’t speak korean. We just point our finger to any of the ‘pancake’ and say ONE.
Pickled cubed radish (kkaktugi) was served once we were seated. Not again? We realized that they serve kimchi with every single meal, let it be barbeque, bindaeduk, noodles or porridge.
Koreans have bindaeduk with these pickled sweet onion. It is crunchy and the taste is less empowering than malaysian onion.
Everyone was taken on the heels of the bindaeduk, it’s a pas de deux in the mouth. Priced at 10,000 won (RM 38), the bindaeduk was laden with prawns, octopus and vegetables.
This particular stall was featured by SBS TV channel before. They must be really well reputable and famous around Jong No area huh?
Every morning we left half our gear in the hostel and set out on the path to town. This is the path that we walk pass everyday. The reflection shows seven of us and Nahee, our korean friend. Stay tune for The Best Korean Restaurant in Seoul titled by Korean Government.
