The restaurant "Namyeongdong Gyeongju" is currently riding high in popularity. From what I've heard, this is the owner of Euljiro Boseok's second restaurant.
Before visiting, I was anticipating how tasty it would be. Moreover, it is an Omakase serving Korean cuisine, a novel concept.
Please use the public parking lot adjacent, then go to the second floor of this building.
Two bottles of alcoholic beverages are necessary for the private room, while one bottle is sufficient for bar seating. There were three of us, so we brought two extra bottles of wine to share. The corkage fee is 30,000 won for each bottle.
Part 1 is from 17:45 to 20:15, when we visited, and Part 2 is from 20:15 to close.
We were told that a bottle of alcohol was required, so we opted for sake.
We had asked for his recommendation of a refreshingly light sake, and he suggested this excellent option.
Jang-jorim (beef braised in soy sauce with quail eggs)
Cabbage with anchovy sauce
Abalone, Turban shell, and Seasonal Hweh (Sashimi)
Charcoal Grilled Pork
Charcoal-grilled pork with gochujang (chili paste)
Gimbap (seaweed roll) & Bori-gochujang
I really enjoyed this Bori-gochujang. So far, all the dishes paired wonderfully with the sake.
The day's main dish, Baeksuk (boiled chicken), and the special sauce that went into making it were both outstanding. The combination of the sauce and the delicate chicken helped me get over my hangover and it was surprisingly tasty.
The manager was so nice that we shared some of the wine we had brought. And the manager also offered us a taste of this pricey liquor.
It was so smooth that I drank it to the bottom...I've probably been drunk ever since then.
Normally, I photograph every wine we finish that day, but I have none. This Chodang corn was the last picture I had. After that, I probably drank another bottle of wine and snacked on some more food, but I can't remember any of it.
But the food was great, and I had some great talks. The day's friendly vibes lingered in my memory. Namyeong-dong Gyeongju appears to become another regular destination for me.
Since it serves Korean cuisine prepared with fresh seasonal ingredients, the menu at this omakase restaurant is always changing. The next time I visit, I plan to drink less, take better photos, and post them to my blog.
