Famed as one of Seoul’s Top 3 Tangsuyuk (Sweet and Sour Pork) Hotspots, this place certainly lives up to its name. Speaking of names, ever wondered about the meaning behind it? Well, ‘Daega-bang translates to ‘The Master’s Chamber,’ and trust me, once you take a bite of their Tangsuyuk, it all makes sense. Now, they offer two types of Tangsuyuk, but if you’re gunning for the one that graces the pictures, it’s the pork Tangsuyuk you want. Planning for a party of two? Ordering two main dishes and one Tangsuyuk is the perfect combo. The portion size is spot on for sharing.

But let’s talk about the star of the show โ€“ the Tangsuyuk itself. When you sink your teeth into it, that delicate air layer between the tender pork and the crispy tempura crust simply melts away. Despite being drenched in sauce, it maintains its crispiness right up to the very last bite. Here’s the secret to that unmatched crunch: the pork gets a double treatment, first a fry, then a toss with the sauce. And speaking of the sauce, it’s not just slopped on โ€“ it’s delicately coated in a glassy, translucent glaze. The harmonious blend of sticky sweetness and the pork’s crispy perfection is nothing short of fantastic. The glistening, glossy dumplings are a visual treat that’s as appetizing as it is satisfying โ€“ a taste sensation that lingers in your memory.

And there’s more good news โ€“ Daega Bang has recently relocated to 333 Moael-ga, Bongunsa-ro, Gangnam-gu, boasting a cozier and cleaner interior that’ll have you feeling right at home. It was previously situated in Apgujeong, but the big move happened around May 2023. It seems their menu has also seen some improvements, attracting a growing number of families. If you’re taking the subway, it’s just a mere 130 meters from Exit 1 of Seonjeongneung Station.
