Buminok – Seoulistic



Open since 1956, Buminok’s longevity points to something–if not to its delicious dishes. While there are large sharing dishes here like spicy, stir octopus and jeon (Korean style pancakes), one of the reasons that this famous Myeongdong restaurant continues to survive is its yukgaejang, a spicy beef and vegetable soup that most restaurants serve haphazardly. Here, each ingredient is well-prepared, even before it’s heated up and the final product is a careful balance of savory and sweet­.
