There is one place to eat in Myeondong. It is Myeongdong Kyoja. The kimchi has very strong garlic additions and it is spicy. Hot. Yet the pungent taste totally compliments the dumplings, the cold noodles and the soup noodles that you can order.
These are the only items one can order here. Turnover of space at tables is fast because it churns out satisfied diners at a rapid pace.
Order what you want, pay at the table, collect your receipt and within 3 mins, your order will land at your table. Pull out the drawers to get your spoon and chopsticks, water is on the table and so are the tissues for you to wipe not only your mouth but also your perspiration from the heat of the kimchi.
As I type this, I find myself drooling in my recollection of many visits to this place. And salivating at the memories of the kimchi and dumplings served there. Skin is so thin and well made that you can see the contents of the dumpling all round. Steamed, delicious, hot, spicy and wonderful.
Most of all, it is very affordable. Missing this is missing what EVERY Seoul resident has tried and know about. Big item on your bucket list. By the way, forget about asking them if they will sell you the kimchi which you can keep asking for it non stop. They will never sell you. My next thoughts will be to buy the shop..... Yes it is that good to me.
