베테랑분식 Veteran @ Jeonju, South Korea


I came to know about Veteran all thanks to the recommendation of Mr Lee, the owner of Bukyungdang Hanok Guesthouse (my accommodation for 2 nights in Jeonju). As soon as we arrived at his guesthouse on day 6 of our South Korea trip, Mr Lee sat us down and asked us “What is your plan in Jeonju? Show me”. I showed him my itinerary and soon after he recommended several eating and visiting places by jotting them in a map for me. After checking into our room, we head right away to Veteran at 1pm to fill our stomach.

Menu off Veteran Restaurant @ Jeonju, South Korea
The only 3 dishes available in Veteran: Kalguksu, jjolmyeon and mandu. There are other dishes (seen from window menu) but they are available during summer time. We ordered each dish to try.

Kalguksu ( Knife-cut Noodles) @ Veteran Restaurant, Jeonju, South Korea
Kalguksu (칼국수) @ 5.000 won. This is the star dish. So heavenly and so delicious. Kalguksu is handmade knife-cut noodles.

The noodles is a bit chewy and very smooth. The broth is smothered with egg-drop like version and top with red chili powder, small bits size of seaweed and perilla seeds powder (brown color). A must-eat dish when you come to Jeonju.
