Listed on the Michelin Bib Gourmand for 3 consecutive years this place serves handmade Kalguksu noodles - texture so Q and smooth, topping off with its robust soup flavor makes this unassuming bowl of noodles at first sight the perfect comfort food in this sweater weather. Mandu(s) are alright, the noodles is still the star here! The best kind of food are the ones that taste so good on their own you don’t need any condiments to go with it

The plan was to walk into any place that has stew and we chanced upon this shop which has chicken stew. Copious amount of tender chicken in such stew is a refreshing change. The broth was also really concentrated even after one round of plain broth was added in and its quite spicy, definitely not for the faint hearted. It doesn’t have an english shop name but its quite a distance from Cityhall Station. Multiple photos not allowed here, go on to my instagram: glassnowflakes for the post on this and look for the last photo of the shop name in Korean!

Generous chunks of crab meat & crab roe adds on texture to every bite, coupled with its natural sweetness makes it so yumz. So good I finished it all! Service here is commendable! From asking us where were we from before proceeding to give us the english menu > giving an extra set of side dishes > navigating the shop name on instagram for me & passing me the namecard > mini yakult.

Just a few shops down Myeongdong Kyoja lies this two storey hidden spot filled w locals. Serving hearty local fare like JJM & Jjamppong, not mindblowing but decently good

One of my favorite kimchi soup of all time and very affordable too. Taste just right, packed with lots of kimchi, tofu and chicken meat. I love to pair it with glass noodles most. My go-to choice if I need a kimchi soup fix, the only food court to serve decent kimchi soup thus far.


Broth tastes awesome and comforting, so good that I kept scooping for more throughout the meal. Plus point: broth tastes sweet rather than having that bitter aftertaste you normally experience from herbal chicken soup because of the presence of red dates in it. Chicken meat was tender and fresh. A set of this for $10.30 is definitely worth it and I'll go back for more.


Classic Korean dish for only $9.20 a set (w rice and side dish) before 7% GST. The soup was slightly more sour than spicy, which was acceptable. I was surprised by their generosity in the portion and ingredients since your food is normally much lesser than what's shown on the menu. Place also offers free flow drinks and ice cream - the variety offered is quite well-rounded.
