Food: Hongdae Stone BBQ (THE BEST EVER!)

Everyone knows that Seoul is the land of awesome Korean barbecues. I’ve tried quite a few Korean barbecues since my exchange programme here last year, and I’ve finally found my favourite then. Nothing else has beat my favourite Korean barbecue restaurant, and I go back there whenever I can.

HSBBQ.014Doesn’t this just scream AWESOME!?!?!?!?! ๐Ÿ˜€

This barbecue shop is a bit special, because it uses stones to barbecue the meat (hence the title), and so I always call the shop “Hongdae Stone BBQ”!!


Take to Hongik University Station (Line 2), and come out via Exit 8. Once you exit, turn to your rightย and you will see the following view:

HSBBQ.001Continue walking straight, till you reach a roundabout (photo below).HSBBQ.002 HSBBQ.003At the roundabout, take a left turn (arrow as shown in photo).HSBBQ.004 HSBBQ.005 HSBBQ.006Continue walking straight till you reach the corner, and take a right turn in.HSBBQ.007 HSBBQ.008There are 2 barbecue shops as you turn in, but go to the second shop, not the first one you see at the corner of the street. The signboard should look like this:HSBBQ.009 HSBBQ.010It gets very crowded especially during the weekends, so do go on a weekday if possible. Also, try to go slightly earlier than the dinner crowd to avoid full house! We reached the shop at 6.30pm and managed to get a table for 5 easily. At around 7.30pm the whole shop was filled with customers!HSBBQ.011The dish that we like to order is the 2nd one, called ์†Œ๊ธˆ๊ตฌ์ด (sogeum-guyi), pork scotch fillet. It’s one of the few dishes that can be barbecued using the stones.

This is a definite MUST TRY every time I go to Seoul, and it’s my #1 favourite barbecue shop in Seoul!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ All my friends LOVE this place so don’t miss it!!!

P.S: If there’s a particular restaurant you would like me to try out and provide directions to, do leave me a comment and I’ll try my best! ๐Ÿ™‚
