samcheongdong / korean restaurant samcheonghwa

samcheongdong, without doubt my ultimate favourite street in korea, is overloaded with absolutely amazing cafés, italian resaurants but was definitely lacking in the authentic korean restaurant department. good brunch and cafés are nice but with so many tourists every single day, it sounds quite wrong they would not have more korean restaurants in the area.

after a decent time spent on researching where to eat around the area we were very lucky to have found samcheonghwa tucked away in the back alley (it’s further in in the alley where you find etude).

as their sub-line suggests, it was definitely like a ‘mother’s meal’.

just look at those boiling stews, bibimbab and seafood pancake! OM NOM NOM big time! i remember this day very clearly. we were hungry. and cold. but the food here was absolutely delicious even at a korean standard.

definitely recommend this place for those who are looking to try out authentic korean cuisine in the area.
