The seaweed knife noodles are the main attraction here. First and foremost, the flavor is exquisite. The broth is refreshing, and the anchovy’s essence fills your mouth. The noodles are chewy yet tender. One bite of noodles followed by a bite of kimchi creates the ultimate combination. It’s a mysteriously satisfying knife noodle dish that you’ll manage to finish even when you’re full. If you sip the broth occasionally, it’s almost like getting a hangover cure. Rolling the rice in the broth creates a whole new dish. Especially the God-Kimchi is phenomenal. Honestly, without offense, if there were a blind taste test between our mom’s kimchi and Sinsook’s kimchi, I’d probably choose Sinsook’s. Since I can’t enjoy a meal without kimchi, this kimchi is something I’d want to eat every day. It’s perfectly ripened and irresistibly delicious. There’s even a hint of a refreshing taste, like well-aged kimchi. The mung bean pancake is delightfully light. When eaten with the accompanying kimchi, it’s a combination that makes you internally exclaim ‘Wow!’

Around here, due to the presence of the Supreme Court, there are many guests who work in the legal field. The Seoul High Prosecutors’ Office is also nearby. Even while eating, customers keep coming in. Many nearby office workers frequent the place. As the owner mentioned, it’s like mixing Jeolla Province with Shinjuku. Every corner is detailed, and the setup is well-organized. The kimchi is presented immaculately. Interestingly, they wear uniforms. There’s a clear philosophy here. Inside the kitchen, neatly arranged towels serve as hand towels. They’re not just for water but for fermenting tea. The attention to detail is captivating. I thought they had been open for around 10 years, but when I asked, they said it’s been 30 years.
