In the realm of Korean cuisine, the absence of traditional fried noodle dishes commonly found in other Asian culinary traditions is conspicuous, but Hey! Egg Noodle, situated near the side gate of Pukyoung National University, is changing that narrative with its no-frills, budget-friendly approach.

Noted for its clean and vibrant ambiance, the restaurant simplifies the ordering process with self-service kiosks and emphasizes a modest menu consisting of egg noodle dishes complemented by pork or shrimp, alongside a flavorsome Chinese-style spicy mala option and others available in varying sizes.

Catering to the discerning palate, Hey! Egg Noodle ensures that meals remain below 10,000 won, providing a satisfying and well-seasoned dining experience without an overpowering greasiness, attracting a loyal following among the local student community and beyond.

On the day of our visit, it was packed with young, 20-something female students who were enjoying a quick bite between classes.

For those on a budget or missing the taste of Southeast Asian noodles, it’s a great choice to enjoy a quick, affordable meal in a friendly atmosphere.

Dining and take-out are available and soft drinks are also on offer.
