In 1425, it was originally called Heewoojeong. However, in 1484, it became the property of prince Wolsan, and he changed it to Mangwonjeong, which means distant scenery can be seen well.  

A creative Korean dining restaurant called A Meal with Yeoni is in the alley of Mangwondong. A restaurant where you can eat alone and have an unforgettable meal.

The rise of Mangwon coincides with the rise of Hongdae’s shopping mall and TV shows.

Mangwon is a residential area that is very close to the business district but still has kept the local look. Mangwon's main attraction sight is the Mangwon Market. It is a traditional and local market that has many local delicacies. I will introduce 7 best restaurants you can go to in Mangwon. It is only two stops away from Hongdae, and I sincerely recommend you guys to visit and discover Mangwon's fantastic cuisines.

A set meal is mainly divided into A and B course. B course is just like A course, but it has more beef roll and radish roll. Besides, the pre-dinner salad and kimchi cheese pancake (choose one of two) are also impressive and delicious.

Jongro Gyerim Garlic Chicken (종로계림마늘닭 망원역점)

Intro to Mangwondong 2020 Mangwondong gourmet restaurants that would make you drool

Jongro Gyerim Garlic Chicken is a local food that Koreans love very much. Lots of garlic is added to the soup, and it's not too spicy and has a strong aroma.

A minimum of 2 portions is required for this food. I strongly recommend that when you visit this place, be sure to add more udon noodles, which will absorb the garlic in the soup, and your noodles will be flavourful.

In the soup, there are ingredients like rice cakes, chicken, and potatoes to flavour up the soup. The portions are large, which was completely beyond my expectations. In addition, I recommend you not getting fried rice, as it's much better to have plain rice with soup alone.

Everyone says that it's not cheap to get food in South Korea. That’s not the case here. The cheapest noodles are only ₩ 2,900. Plus, the hamburger meat steak is also quite cheap. The store is next to the Jongro Gyerim Garlic Chicken and is a small place.

The delicious noodles and the oversized hamburger meat steak will really be satisfactory. The low price makes the meal even more delightful. Next time you want to have a cheap and delicious meal, this is where you need to go.

That Place in Mangwon (망원그곳)

Intro to Mangwondong 2020 Mangwondong gourmet restaurants that would make you drool

A small pub is hidden in Mangwon, and the room is filled with flowers and golden lights to create a romantic mood. I discovered this lovely pub recently, and I loved it. You can drink like Koreans, taste special dishes, and have an exotic date here!

The food and wine here are very exquisite, and it makes people feel like they're dining in a high-end restaurant. Although the price is not cheap, the taste and atmosphere of the restaurant make it all worth it.

Joo5il (주오일식당)

The name means 5 days a week restaurant in Korean, and as the name suggests, this restaurant only opens five days a week. This Mangwon's gourmet restaurant is hidden in the alley and is in the list of many Koreans' favourite restaurants. It aired on Wednesday Food Talk which is a food talk show that introduces best-tasting restaurants around Korea.

Their dishes do not look like Korean food at all, but it tastes Korean. The most popular one is the eggplant dish. The eggplant isn't cut into small pieces. Instead, the whole eggplant is served with a special sauce. The flavour is rich, but the portion is just a little too small.

The picture above is chicken risotto with purple rice. It was like borscht, but it tasted not too special. It is best to order eggplant rice, in my opinion.

Mapo Instant Buckwheat Noodles District

Intro to Mangwondong 2020 Mangwondong gourmet restaurants that would make you drool

There are many traditional restaurants in Korea that sell only one type of food, especially the cold noodles that we call soba (buckwheat noodle). This restaurant specializes in soba but in a Korean way known to almost all residents in Mangwondong.

The way Koreans eat soba is to add a little watery mustard in the soup and it tastes refreshing. The portion of one bowl here is equal to two bowls at other restaurants. Have it with hot dumpling, and it would be perfect!

Berlin Kitchen (베를린 키친)

Intro to Mangwondong 2020 Mangwondong gourmet restaurants that would make you drool

The Berlin Kitchen can only welcome four groups of guests at a time, and there are only four menus. Each menu is relatively healthy, and their side dishes and desserts are also healthy.

Seafood curry does not have a strong curry aroma, and the sweetness of vegetables went well with creamy curry. It was fresh compared to the typical curry we eat in regular restaurants.

Their signature beef dish had five-grain rice with a large portion of vegetables and sweet soy sauce. It is mixed with pre-seasoned beef. In my opinion, it's more like a Japanese beef rice bowl than a Korean rice bowl.
