2 Sep 2014 - Healthy, cheap and yummilicious dinner

I had an enjoyable time with my Korean buddy during our first meet up. To my surprise, she just came back from her vacation trip to Spore, and you bet we had so much to talk about ㅎㅎㅎ We also had another friend from HK joining us. While other groups have 2 different countries to share and learn from each other, our group had 3!

Anyway, allow me to move on to my dinner for the day.
I took the subway to Jongno 3-ga Station, exit 15 to get to the eatery, 뚝배기집.
Its not hard to locate 뚝배기집 and it took me about 6 mins from exit 15 to reach it.

Lots of 뚝배기 of course.
A simple eatery serving delicious food with a simple menu.
  1. 우렁됀장 (I think this is snail in bean paste soup. Many locals ordered this.) 5000won
  2. 된장 찌개 Doenjang Jjigae 4500won
  3. 순두부 Sundubu 4500won
  4. 김치 찌개 Kimchi Jjigae 5000won

I ordered my all time favourite, 순두부 Sundubu ^^
Dare not try the snail soup ㅋㅋㅋ
Here, everyone mix the chilli paste, 고추장 into their rice. 
Really healthy, cheap and delicious food!
Passed by this shop selling sugarcane drinks.
When I was in Seoul earlier this year, I noticed a few sugarcane drinks shops and I saw more of it in this trips. My Korean buddy said the same but she was not sure whether the sugarcanes are grown locally or imported. Any Koreans know the answer?


  1. Annyeong Yun! I just came back from Seoul last week. And will be going back again in Jan. Woot. Is that the only menu the shop serves? Or do they serve other menu. I'm a Muslim so I have to know the menu they have. Would love to try this resto in my coming trip. Thanks in advance.

    1. 안녕! Ya. The menu only serve 4 different types of jjigae. U still able to makan?

    2. Yessss definitely able to makan! Thanks so much for sharing.
