24th April 2013 - Breakfast at Namdaemun
|I took the subway to Hoehyeon Station, exit 5 for breakfast before checking out.|
This is the place where I wanted to have my breakfast. I am always curious about this place whenever I pass by.The stacks of tray seem to be telling people that this is a popular eatery. This eatery is opposite the Kalguksu Alley. Direction to Kalguksu Alley as stated in my previous post, Namdaemun Kalguksu Alley.
|The 아줌마 working here are perhaps from China.|
I wouldn't know they are Chinese if they had not spoken Mandarin to me!
What a surprise ^^
1) 손칼국수 Handmade noodles KRW5000
2) 냉면 Naengmyeon Cold noodles KRW5500
3) 쫄면 Jjolmyeon KRW5500.
Click Aeriskitchen to see what is Jjolmyeon. Looks a bit like Bibim Guksu to me ㄱㄱㄱ
4) 잔지국수 Janchi Guksu KRW5000.
Click Topchefkorea to see how it looks like. Looks like our "Mee Suan" where its supposed to be eaten traditionally on birthdays. 잔지국수is also eaten during weddings, birthdays and festive events. Interesting ^^
5) 보리밥 Boribap KRW5500.
From 10mag.com, I learnt that Boribap is a dish of steamed rice and barley that is often served with Doenjang Jjigae. I remembered eating Bori bibimbap at the Kalguksu Alley in my previous trip. It was delicious ^^
6) 찰밥 Chalbap KRW6000.
From Aeriskitchen, I came to know that Chalbap is the stuffing used in Samgyetang. Something like sticky rice or rather glutinous rice. I wonder how is Chalbap served in this eatery. Could it be something like bibimbap in this case?? I don't know.
|I ordered 손칼국수. Looks good but I don't like it.|
I preferred the noodles in the Kalguksu Alley.
Naengmyeon was served as a complimentary dish.
|After I am done with my noodles, I walked over to Kalguksu Alley.|
Nah...not to have another bowl of noodles. I just wanna walk through this alley.
|Bought a Kimchi mandu outside Kalguksu Alley.|
As good as before ^^
|Hahahahaa...Guess what?? |
I took the subway to Euljiro 1 ga for my Guma Guma again!
