Namdaemun Kalguksu Alley

Category: Restaurant - Seafood Restaurant
Nearest Subway Station:  Hoehyeon (Line 4)
Distance from Subway Station: 47 meters (Exit 5)
District (gu): Jung-gu
GPS: 37.558219,126.976971

This is the other famous food street in Namdaemun and the famous dish here is kalguksu or knife cut noodles. The broth for kalguksu is usually only made with anchovies, kelp and shellfish but you should ask in case other meats are used in it. Located in a small alley very near to Exit 5 of Hoehyeon Station, the alley is filled with many stalls serving the same kalguksu menu and barley rice bibimbap (boribap). These dishes also come with a free serving of bibim naengmyeon. The price for kalguksu is only around 4,500 KRW so not only they are filling, but cheap too :)   (source 1, source 2)
