if you’ve been to Myeongdong you might’ve spotted this shop with a LONG queue (almost always) called the Myeongdong Gyoja. well, if you’re a foreigner it is not like you would be able to read it because I do not think they have an english translation for it. anyways, it’s next to the back of the H&M on the main street (not the one at NOON complex).
it isn’t hard to spot as they have that long queue of people and the all maroon and white sign.
the queue behind me. it was crazy. gyoja is like…. gyoza in Japanese which means dumplings. but instead, I think they are more famous for their Kalguksu 갈국수 which was amazing.
they are also famous for their strong pungent kimchi. everybody seems to love their kimchi there. I personally really love kimchi. but theirs was just too strong for my taste.
it is like a NORM to order a basket of dumpling and a bowl of noodles if you go there on pairs. each would cost you 8,000won. not cheap, but it is pretty worth it. well, quite.
this is the amazing kalguksu. kalguksu literally mean knife noodles. I am sorry for all my muslim friends but this is non-halal as you can see the minced pork above the noodles which makes it extra awesome compared to the normal kalguksu’s you can find in Seoul.
oh right! you can also have a refill of noodles! hence the reason why you should only order 1 bowl of noodles. =D.
the sticky rice is a side dish. we added more noodles after we finished our noodles. kept some soup for the 2nd batch of noodles =3. if you ever need more noodles then just say “guksu chugahae juseyo” or “guksu jom deo juseyo”. you should totally do that because it is FREE =3. but it was because I was there with a growing teenage boy wth so he could eat a lot (and I can eat a lot though I am not growing anymore). these pictures was taken longgggggg ago. hence I was wearing an ajumma knit wear haha.
