Onggolmyeon (Seoul)

I strongly recommend, at the feet of Nowon Station (Line 4), a very small eatery that used to be a mandu place. The speciality, onggolmyeon, is a delicate and fresh bibim guksu (mixed noodle salad) with julienne veggetables, dry seaweed (gim), black sesame seeds, and meat. No gochujang, very soothing. They also make flat mandu that taste like crepes.

Typically the kind of places that make Seoul so unique.

Onggolmyeon / 옹골면
598-2 Sanggye-2-dong, Nowon-gu, Seoul, ROK
Tel : +82.2.6221.8202

UPDATE 20110614 : the bibim is now served on a plate (less convenient, but still delicious - and cheap: KRW 4,500), and under the new system, the address is Sanggye-ro 70.
