It’s known as one of the top three kimchi stew restaurants in Seoul. The unique feature? It’s a ‘wrap-and-eat’ kimchi stew. They provide fresh lettuce leaves and various greens that you can use to wrap and eat the kimchi stew, adding a special touch to the dining experience. The broth is deep and rich, growing even more flavorful as it simmers. The robust slices of meat and the kimchi are bubbling away in the pot. A staff member serves rice, and the sight of brown rice is a rare treat. You pour the kimchi stew broth onto the rice, scoop a generous spoonful, and enjoy it. It’s truly a Korean soul food experience. Wrapping and eating kimchi stew is a unique experience even for Koreans themselves. Fresh leaves of lettuce, cheonggyeongchae (Korean watercress), red crown daisy, chicory, and red perilla are spread out, vibrant and crisp. The main delight lies in wrapping the meat and kimchi from the stew with the greens. The combination of the flavorful broth, zesty dipping sauce, succulent meat, and vegetables is perfect.

If you walk along the Bangsan Market, you’ll spot Eunjujeong Restaurant right away. The vibrant energy of Nopo is palpable. If you enjoy this ambiance, consider touring the nearby markets. You can experience history and culture. Cross the Cheonggyecheon Stream to find Gwangjang Market, a hub for street food, and head towards Jongno for Pyeonghwa Market, renowned for its clothing industry.
