Old Seoul style Korean Dive Pub in K-town

I really love this place because it reminds me of the old dive bars and pubs in Seoul that my uncles and aunts used to take me to as a child. I usually tagged along to whatever they were doing and enjoyed sips of soju, beer, or makkuli (creamy unfiltered rice wine) here and there with salty anju (bar snacks) and drinking foods. I miss those carefree days.

It is a dark, drafty, and a creaky wooden place that is like an indoor pojangmacha (drinks and foods street food stall). There are dark wooden tables and wooden benches in partially screened booths that ring the wall with a grill in the middle and a kitchen in the back.

The grill in the middle is (wo)manned by ajummas(older korean ladies) who grill all types of meats and seafood.
They grill chicken butt, octopus, frog legs, scallops, nuts, pork, beef, and many other types of edibles.

The have a long list of all types of dishes on a wooden block menu to accompany drinks that include tasty spicy sweet tokkbokki and fish cakes (spicy rice cakes) or with ramen noodles, Rabbokki,; dumbell shaped seaweed rolls (glass noodles fried in dough and seaweed wrap) which are delicious and crunchy; tasty mild blood sausage both steamed and fried(with seasoned glass noodles); tender fried sliced egg rolls; raw snails in spicy vinegary salad; golden seafood pancake with soy sauce; raw tofu topped with fresh seasoned spicy greens; delicious spicy pork ribs; and many other dishes that are just perfect for Hite beer, soju, and makkoli(unfiltered rice wine). Someone told me the makkoli tasted of bananas and someone else said it reminded them of agave.

Everything is pretty much between $7 – $13. The grills are about $3 a serving. When a big groups goes and eats to their hearts’ content it usually is under $20 per person.

Authentic K-town Pub

Love it. One of the best and most authentic K pubs in K town. It’s definitely on the old skool tip – diveyness factor, that is, but it’s legit.

Random Notes:

1. Service is exceptional. Shoot, the servers even come by to pick up your used, snotty napkins off your table. They’re very nice and helpful.

2. Food (K pub bar food) is awesome. Little ajummas prepare all your childhood favorites, like spicy squid, tofu kimchi, and chicken wings. YUM!

3. You get a small brass of spicy radish and mussel broth along with a little plate of celery sticks with ranch as your free appetizer.

4. You’re in a REAL K bar so start acting like a K patron: don’t ask or look for any cocktail soju (yogurt, grape, etc.) because they only offer the hard stuff (beer, soju, and other spirits). Drink responsibility – you can always sober up at Dan Sung Sa Noraebang (karaoke) next door if needed.

5. Be advised that, as this place is “Korean-Korean,” I don’t think there are English menus. You can ask the friendly servers for help, but there are literally almost 100 different items on the menu so that might take a while.
