Dami sikdang serves up tasty Korean table d’hote

If you ask me the best Korean restaurant in Sunchang, the answer is simple: just follow your nose and your feet. When it comes to food, Chungcheongnam-do has no rival on this peninsula. The rich agriculture of the area means restaurants can serve Korean table d’hote 12-course meals at a great price. On my travel, I randomly stopped in a small hanjeongjik eatery (다미식당) after my long day of hiking. My simple order of a soft tofu stew for 8,000 won (or 6.79$) unexpectedly became one of 12 additional side dishes at no extra cost.

When the plates started arriving at my table, I was worried I ordered incorrectly. But the assortment of side dishes were in fact a part of my order. The servers here were kind and I was truly satisfied with my spicy hot tofu stew made of gochujang. This restaurant was also the only one I could find that accepts solo diners. It was a great hanjeongsik experience. In Sunchange you’ll find many restaurants known for their hanjeongsik, but if you’re not worried about the popularity factor, then this spot would be a great option to try.
