Feeling quite hungry, I ordered the Special Pork Belly Ramen. As I placed the order at the kiosk, I wondered just how big it would be. When it arrived, I didn’t fall backward in shock, but my eyes definitely widened. It’s seriously huge. I almost thought there should be a timer to finish it in a certain time. It’s enormous enough to make you feel like a food fighter. The taste is also perfectly balanced. The tonkotsu broth is rich and savory, with a deep umami from the bone. It has a slight tanginess that’s just right, giving the ideal level of seasoning. The noodles are on the firmer side, and they soften as you eat, matching perfectly with the broth. The pork belly, as expected, is served whole, but it’s better to break it down before eating. It falls apart easily with chopsticks and is incredibly tender.

If you’re in Geumho-dong, you must visit this place. The owner manages the restaurant alone, and his hospitality is top-notch. There are 5 bar-style tables and a window-side table for two. Seeing students coming here for lunch confirms that it’s truly a delicious spot. Students often know the best places to eat, after all. It’s about a 15-minute walk from Geumho Station Exit 2. Geumho-dong has an old and vintage vibe, but it’s an interesting neighborhood with hip establishments scattered around. The nearby Geumnam Market would also be worth exploring.
