Let's GO, Seoul●Busan! 首爾●釜山趴趴走!

안녕하세요 여러분! \^0^/
Annyeonghaseyo, everyone!

This is a continuous from my previous post.

Honestly, I have no idea how long this Seoul+Busan travel journal series gonna be @@
I will try my best to make it as interesting (to read) as possible :)

Hope you enjoy reading :)

Let's GOOOOO!!!


September 9, 2016 (Friday)

After checked-into our guesthouse,
we quickly settled ourselves and get ready to EXPLORE SEOUL!

Since it's almost half day gone (spent on airplane and in airport),
we really wish to catch up with our schedule.

Oh yes, we do have our schedule planned in advance.
Cong Min is the one does the planning,
and I just put it into Excel.
(Teamwork? Or maybe I'm exploiting her :p)

It's almost 2PM when we are ready.
Time for lunch!

Apparently, Cong Min is more interested in foodies,
so she did a lot of research on "Good Foods in Seoul/Busan" :D

Frankly speaking, I never heard about this restaurant before this.
According to Cong Min, this is a well-known place-to-go in Seoul,
especially for you who loves BBQ :9

연남서식당 (연남서서먹는갈비집)
Yeonnam Standing Restaurant (Yeonnam Standing Eating Chop House)

**how to get to this location : take metro/subway to Sincheon (240), Exit 7**
Address : 서울특별시 마포구 노고산동 109-69
Tel : 02-716-2520
Operating Hours : 12:00~20:30

FYI I did a direct English Translation to the Restaurant's name,
so it might sounds weird >_<

In fact, just like its name,
you have to stand all the time while eating the beef chop!
Something new to you, is it?
Me either ^^

It's passed lunch hour by the time we reached there.
Not many people were in the restaurant.
(thank God, we need not to line up and wait)

Once you stepped into the restaurant,
the waiter will prepare the cookeries and set up the fire.

It is unnecessary to inform the waiter what you want to order,
because the only thing they serve here is beef chop.

The servings here is according to headcount.
It is impossible to order one serving and share among the group.

For instance, two (2) person = two (2) servings.
One serving is KRW15,000.
(OMG hope it worths it...)

And if you are going alone,
I'm sorry but you have to take two (2) servings as well
as it is the minimum serving.

Then the waiter will put the raw beef chop on the stove,
and he/she will tell you when it is good to eat.
I'm starving..........

She says can eat now!
I can't wait :9

If you think the serving portion is quite small,
think twice!

I thought the same too at first,
telling Cong Min, "do you think we can refill?"
(well of course if you're willing to pay HAHAHA)

But at the end, we were struggling to finish it all.
I'm quite full after that meal.

The dipping sauce is marvelous!!!!!
I love it in the first sight!!!!!! ❤o❤
The vinegar taste and the spring onion is the best match with beef chop!

You might get thirsty like we did,
FYI drinking water is self-service.
You can get a cup from the counter and go to the water dispenser to get it.

Or else, you can buy carbohydrate drinks like we did,
it's KRW1,000 per bottle.

Or, maybe you would like some beer to go with the beef chop,
IDK how much it is, but it is available :)

The lady boss knows a little Chinese,
so you can tell her what drinks you want,
then she can get for you.

Although it is not lunch time, the restaurant is still occupied with people.
And everyone is eating while standing.
That's good for digestion, anyway,

A group of people came behind us,
yet finished earlier than us O.O

You can either put your bags inside a plastic bag,
and put it under the shelves,
so it won't get it your way while eating.

After almost 40 mins, we finished our meal.

I rather satisfied with the taste and texture of the beef chop.
Not forget to mention the perfect match for it - the dipping sauce.
With soda water on the other hand,
whooooots I couldn't ask for more.

Price per say, I would say a little pricy.
(considering the depreciation on Malaysian Ringgit T^T)

KRW15,000 x 0.00369 = RM55.35 per pax

But I think the quality of the beef is rather good,
so...... I guess it worth the price.

Will I recommend this to a friend? Yes, of course.
That's what I am doing now.

Will I revisit the restaurant on my next trip? Probably, if time allows.
But of course I can't afford to eat it everyday (thou I wish to HAHAHA)


That's all for now.
Thank you and hope you enjoy reading :)
Please look forward to the next post!
