okay. don’t get all excited there. chill.

sorry to break the news but, it isn’t exactly a Malaysian shop. more like a Japanese shop. but the thing is, they made the calamari so Malaysian style. it’s almost exactly the same on how Malaysians would make it. so you poor students in Seoul who misses Malaysian food, you can release your longings here =D.

just look up the directions on google maps with it’s geometrical location : 37.558225,126.934752

the shops name is 털보고된이 (생선구이).

everybody loves banchans! (side dishes) I liked the Jelly one. haha. my friend laughed at me for calling it jelly. oh well.

and finally, the IKAN BAKAR! if you’re not Malaysian, Ikan Bakar (mackerel) literally means Fired Fish. but it’s means Grilled Fish =D.

the set comes with a yummy Dwenjang Jjigae too. (beanpaste soup). I love how they serve their tea on a bowl instead of a cup =P.

just added this picture for fun because I went out with a Korean guy (just friends pfft.) for HOF and chicken. holy cow the plate above costs 16,000won. but it was really filling. you don’t need no dinner. you just need this and beef. HOF is for House Of  Beer in German. you’d find plenty of places in Korea saying HOF or HOF & Chicken. Korean’s favourite place to drink.

Hi Jamie,

I came across ur page while surfing for Korean food. My friends and I will be in Seoul next week. So we’re looking for local food especially seafood since we can’t eat pork. Does this restaurant serve pork? Because most of the seafood restaurant that we found serve pork. Can you suggest me few local restaurant that don’t serve pork.
Would love to hear from you soon. Thanks in advance.
