Myeongdong is a place where most of the foreign tourists who visit Korea stay in Seoul. Myeongdong is a traditional tourist attraction located in the heart of Seoul and has excellent access to many tourist attractions. Because it’s been the most famous tourist attraction, Myeongdong is really convenient to tour around for people who don’t know the Korean language. However, at the same time, it is really hard to enjoy Seoul like local people. Most restaurants in Myeongdong have foreign language descriptions and various menus, but Korean people don’t go that kind of restaurants, because usually, their menus are overpriced and not good.
However, there is one very popular restaurant in Myeong-dong among Korean people. The restaurant named, “Sic-Ddang” meaning restaurant in Korean, is known for the first place to develop a combination of spicy octopus cuisine and Gorgonzola pizza. The combination of greasy cheese and spicy food is really the best. If you eat a bite of octopus with spicy sauce on a piece of Gorgonzola pizza, its harmony is really great. At “Sic-Ddang”, you can order a variety of foods in a set menu, and the most important thing is that the price is really reasonable.
There are so many different kinds of dishes such as Korean-style shellfish dishes (mixed with spicy sauce and vegetables), Bulgogi, spicy squid dishes, Gorgonzola pizza, Korean-style hot and cold noodles, etc. Set menus that combine those menus are available, of course.
Recently, Butter Lobster dishes are added to menus, and can also be combined into a set menu that includes lobster dishes, shellfish dishes, cold noodles, salad pasta, and rice for only about $40. Thanks to its reasonable price, the line of people who wait for the entrance is often really long.
The amount of each menu is quite a lot than expected, so even a set of two people seems to be enough for 3 people. You can take some spicy squiz dish on your own plate, and make DIY Bibimbap with the squiz and some vegetables served as a side dish. Enjoy spicy squiz dish, first and when your mouth and stomach seem to suffer from the spiciness, have a bite of sweet and savory Gorgonzola pizza to soothe them. Cold noodle with Kimchi is also delicious.
You can enjoy not only rice, but also some noodle dishes. There are salad pasta and Korean-style cold noodles. The best part of this restaurant is that you can enjoy the rice and the noodles at the same time!
You can make Bibimbap in your own style by putting a spicy and colorful clan dishes on the white rice. You can also drink a sip of cold noodles when getting thirsty! This restaurant is the right place to visit if you are around the Myeongdong area having cravings for some good Korean dishes.
When you listen to each menu and set dishes, they seem to be out of sync a bit, but that means that it’s a quite rare chance to enjoy these various meals at the same restaurant. I think this restaurant is perfect for foreign tourists who want to taste a variety of Korean food at an affordable price. Since it’s a place where many Koreans actually visit, the taste is somewhat guaranteed, right? Spicy squiz Bibimbap and western pizza at the same place! It is a place where you can feel the harmony between the East and the West lol
