Seongsu-dong is a wonderful location to visit. Particularly hip is Seongsu-dong's Café Street, where you may take in the many interesting sights.
Seongsu-noru is an excellent spot to eat Gopchang (beef tripe).
Go straight down from Exit 3 of Seongsu Station.
Following that, you'll come across a wonderful array of boutiques and eateries along the chic Seongsu-dong Cafe Street. The popular Daelim Warehouse Café can be found directly opposite Seongsu-noru.
Even if you're not great with directions, you'll be able to find Seongsu-noru easily because it's in a hip part of Seongsu-dong.
The interior is furnished in an industrial style.
There used to be nothing but factories in Seongsu-dong, but ever since they were transformed into cafes, the area has become increasingly fashionable and well-liked.
Seongsu-noru renovated the factory building. There are two levels, so pick whatever floor best suits your mood.
I got there right when it opened at 3:30 on Sundays, but there were already a bunch of people waiting outside.
Assorted plate (medium) 750g - 75,000 won
(Gopchang : beef tripe, Daechang : beef intestine, Makchang : beef entrails, Yeomtong : beef heart)
Tofu stew, Gganyang (Stir-fried tripe) - 5,000 won each
Fried Rice - 5,000 won (x2)
Soju - 5,000 won
Bean powder, ssamjang, white kimchi, green onion kimchi, pickled chives, etc. Various side dishes are served first.
If you're feeling stuck between several options on the menu, a great way to get some guidance is to ask the staff for recommendations.
Gganyang (stir-fried tripe)
Assorted plate (medium) 750g 75,000 won
Consist of Gopchang, Daechang, Makchang, and Yeomtong (75,000won/750g)
Grilled to a golden crisp and chopped into pieces, the gopchang will make your mouth water just by looking at it. Daechang takes some time to prepare, so the guides recommend eating on the Gopchang in the meanwhile.
Despite liking daechang, a gopchang kept me from putting down my chopsticks. It is not a waste of money because the attractive wait staff does a wonderful job and grills deliciously till the very end.
Daechang, the king of savory taste
The truth is that while both Gopchang and Yeomtong are great, neither of them can match the great taste of Daechang.
Daechang is best when eaten with grilled onion and kimchi.
Crispy fried rice recommended
The fried rice we ordered was crispy and delicious. Seongsu-noru is a place where you can have some tasty fried rice.
If you're looking for a fun place to hang out with friends in Seongsu-dong, I highly recommend you check out this restaurant.
