A very good place for bibimbap and cold noodle. This restaurant is in Myeondong but it is a little hidden, so one must look carefully for the entrance.

Arguably Seoul’s most famous neighbourhood and
undoubtedly one of its most popular, Myeongdong takes
shopping and eating to new heights, with hundreds of
shops, restaurants, and cafes all stacked on top of
one another. The rise in popularity of Korean
cosmetics, fashion, and more has made this area a
must-see for visitors who come and marvel at
Myeongdong’s often frenetic pace and energy. Lotte and
