Not having any idea what to eat for lunch after visiting Bukchon Hanok Village on day 12, we chanced upon this old sujebi restaurant in the midst of modern and hip Samcheongdong in Seoul. Sujebi is a traditional soup dish made from hand torn dough with vegetables. It’s similar to our Chinese dish called mee hoon kueh. The taste of sujebi broth is totally different from our regular mee hoon kueh broth. It’s difficult to explain (since I’m not good at explaining food stuff. Yeah I know what kind of foodie am I? I guess a horrible one. Haha). Anyway go try it and find out if you like it like me. 🙂
On how we chanced upon this restaurant was because we have just completed our Bukchon Hanok Village scenic walk tour by ourself and came down from Bukchon 8th view. Samcheongdong Sujebi is just opposite the road. 🙂
Sujebi @ 7,000 won per person. This large pot consist of 3 person worth. We can scoop the banchan ourself because on each table they placed the kimchi and green vegetables in two large containers.
The sujebi were smooth and delicious. There were slices of cucumber and cubed potatoes (if I remember correctly). And when you add in the kimchi… ahh so heavenly. It’s a food which can warm your stomach on a rainy day. Coincidentally it was drizzling when we visited Samcheongdong that morning. I guess that what makes this sujebi so good. Although we were full to the brim, we still forced ourself to finish the big pot. This show how wonderful this meal was. 🙂
Don’t be surprised with the sharing table policy. Some may not like it like when we were directed to a half-full table. One of the patrons pulled a monkey face on us. Sigh. So we ended up in another table.
By the time we leave the restaurant at 12pm, a line has formed outside. Go early to avoid queuing.
