Must-Visit Restaurant in Myeong-dong: Myeongdong Kyoja
Myeongdong Kyoja has become a landmark of Myeong-dong with its specialties of kalguksu (noodle soup) and mandu (dumplings) for the past 50 years. The hand-made, dough noodles and diced meat in chicken broth soup go splendidly well with the restaurant’s other specialty, mandu. The mandu is scrumptiously filled with meat and vegetables, oozing out juice in every bite. Myeong-dong Kyoja is also well known for their generous services as additional noodles and rice are provided free of charge upon request.
If you want to fully indulge yourself in kalguksu and mandu for a full flavor, try it together with the kimchi offered as a side dish. Kimchi marinated with hot pepper powder and garlic adds a stronger flavor to the soup.
