“The meat is really delicious and the mixed platter has a generous portion 🙂 Finishing with brisket ramen made it a perfect meal ◡̈⃝. If you’re going to have meat in Hongdae, I highly recommend Yukmong!!”


“It feels like I’ve found Jeju Island in Hongdae 🥹 This place is a gem for Samgyeopsal (pork belly) in Hongdae. Samgyeopsal, Moksal (neck meat), and Galmaegisal (skirt meat) are all delicious, and their Doenjang Jjigae (soybean paste stew) is top-notch 👍🏻👍🏻 There’s usually a wait, so make sure to reserve your table in advance!!!! I recommend the Han-don mixed set!!”


“Although the turnover rate was fast and we didn’t have to wait long, I can see why there’s always a line. Every time I passed by, I would see people waiting outside the restaurant and think ‘I should go there sometime.’ Finally went and it was worth itㅎㅎ The juicy Moksal and chewy Samgyeopsal were both so delicious~ The staple of any Korean BBQ place, Doenjang Jjigae, as well as Cheese Gyeranjjim (steamed eggs), were amazing!!! Next time when I crave for some meat, I’ll definitely be back here:)”

1.2. Yeongdong Gamjatang(영동 감자탕): Soup

Gamjatang is a Korean soup dish made primarily from pork spine or ribs, vegetables, and other ingredients. The word "감자" in Korean actually means potato, but in this case, it refers to the pork bone marrow or the finely ground perilla seeds added to the soup, not potatoes. The word "탕" means soup or stew in Korean. It's important to note that while some versions of the dish may include potatoes, the name doesn't directly refer to them.

“This place serves the best Gamjatang in the Hongdae area! The kimchi is spicy, but I keep craving it. I enjoyed the slightly spicy yet savory Gamjatang, as they allow you to adjust the spiciness. The staff were also very friendly, so I left feeling satisfied and happy after a hearty meal. Highly recommended!”


“This is my first time trying such a delicious Gamjatang. It’s definitely number one in this area and one of the best in Seoul city. Love it!!”


“It’s my first time trying it and it’s so delicious! The meat pieces are large and plentiful!”

“I’m surprised this gem hasn’t been featured in Michelin yet 😭. I was heading to a Japanese ramen place but ended up taking a wrong turn and found this place that feels like a unique Korean set meal restaurant and bar. It’s the best wrong turn I’ve made this year ☝️. The pot rice is filled with various vegetables, they even give you butter to mix in the rice, and the stir-fried pork is flavorful without being too salty. You can tell each side dish has been carefully prepared 😋.”


“The restaurant Deulpul Hansang in Seogyo-dong doesn’t try to artificially enhance flavors, but rather brings out taste through natural seasoning.”


“It was so good it reminded me of home-cooked meals from my childhood. The stir-fried pork, potato pancake, and rolled omelet were not overly seasoned and were easy to eat without feeling overwhelmed.”

“It’s perfect to eat with friends, order a set for 2 or 3 people according to your group size! Slightly spicy udon curry, tender cube steak, cheesy manjjang katsu, and crispy furikake rice, all cleared without leftovers!”


“The warm and cozy atmosphere created by the wooden interior is comfortable and the best!!

The food is served neatly, making it enjoyable to eat. I had the rabbit curry rice set, which is their signature menu, and it was fun to taste a variety of cute side dishes that came along with it. The restaurant is clean and seems to be a good place for college students to go on dates.”


“I loved the interior that felt like visiting a friend’s house who prepared a meal for me. The curry and tonkatsu have a familiar taste, but the side dishes served with them were quite tasty.”

“”I had the tenderloin katsu and sirloin katsu, and the tenderloin katsu was super tasty….🥺 There’s a generous amount, the meat is tender, and the breading is not too thick but crispy, making it very delicious!! The sirloin katsu was also delicious with a good balance of meat and fat! I waited for about 20 minutes, but it was totally worth the wait for this amazing tonkatsu place!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”


“I stumbled upon this place while searching for a Tonkatsu restaurant, and it turned out to be a famous place that was featured on Master of Living! I visited just before lunch closing and fortunately there was no wait. The food was really delicious and I felt like there was a lot, but I ate it all!!! They also do takeout, so I’ll use it again next time!”

“There’s a reason why Kawakatsu is famous. I ordered the sweet and sour chicken katsu. I shared with my companions who ordered both hiré and rosu, You must try the hiré~ The breading is crispy and the inside is moist. A perfect example of crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside. It was so delicious.”

“There are a lot of Malatang places in Hongdae, but this one personally makes it into my top five🙂. The prices are reasonable and the soup is rich and delicious, with the peanut sauce mixed in just right. The restaurant is located on the second floor and the space is wide and pleasant. The staff are also friendly. They operate a bit later than other places, so I’m definitely planning a return visit👌.”


“The Malatang is so delicious and the restaurant is clean and quiet. It’s a great place to have a meal and take a break from the noisy streets of Hongdae♡.”


“The restaurant is spacious and clean! The hygiene standards are good. The Malatang is moderately spicy and delicious. Even if you’re not usually a fan of Malatang, I think you’ll enjoy it here.”

“It was my first visit to Bul-i-ya Hongdae branch, and I found it spacious, clean, and friendly. As expected, the delicious hotpot was the best. It seems delicious no matter when you eat it. They also had Yeontae Highball, which made the meal even more special. I would like to visit again.”


“Bul-i-ya is the most luxurious and refined among the hotpot places I know. It looked cool from the outside, and the interior was exotic and much more splendid than I thought. Each hotpot ingredient looked fresh, and the composition was diverse and good. From the sauce self corner to the overall store, it was very clean and satisfying!”


“I made a reservation because I wanted to eat special food in a quiet place. The vegetables were fresh, the broth was rich, and there were a variety of sauce ingredients, which I liked.”

“A Chinese restaurant that operates 24 hours. The food is clean and delicious~ There are many chunks in the Jjamppong and the texture of the noodles is so good!! The Jjajang-Jjamppong-Tangsuyuk set is really cost-effective!!”


“After work, I eat Uni Jjajang noodles on my way home. The Jjajang sauce is salty, so it would be good to add only noodles or eat it with Ggun Mandu (fried dumplings).”


“I ordered clam Jjamppong rice~ Abalone? A huge clam appeared as the main dish!! It was surprising ㅎㅎ The ingredients were fresh~ The scent of garlic? The flavor was very strong in the Jjamppong~ The auntie in the hall was very friendly on Sunday!”
