Included In

This bare-bones noodle shop from Seoul is famous for its garlicky house kimchi, which is so potent that the restrooms are stocked with mouthwash. Vampire-slaying banchan isn’t the only reason to come, though. The hand-cut noodles and dumplings here are excellent, and everyone in the dining room, from large groups of coworkers to solo lunchers trying to find peace, has both on their table. When it’s hot, go for the spicy, cold, chewy wheat noodles mixed with vegetables. When you need some warmth and comfort, get the kalguksu with ground chicken and steamed pork dumplings.
