Our Visit

hongdae tokkijung interior

Tokkijung is a restaurant franchise. The Hongdae branch has a total of 4 floors. B1 is the kitchen and the 1st to 3rd floors provide seats for customers. The restaurant is so big that you don't have to worry about there being no space.

This is the seating area on the first floor. It's the end of the year, so it was decorated for Christmas. It's cozy with a Christmas tree and golden light coming through the windows.

If it is not so crowded, I recommend you to have a window seat. If there is sunlight, the pictures will come out more romantic.

There are quite a few tables on the first floor and every corner is elaborately decorated. The wooden furniture combined with white tones gives this place both a retro and a modern feeling.

If you want a higher view, go up to the 2nd floor. The second floor also has a great vibe!

Unfortunately, the lights didn't turn on on the 3rd floor, but it still looks cute, right? 

Tokkijung's food is famous for being both delicious and beautiful. The portions are also huge, so it's worth the money. We ordered a lot of dishes and will review them for you.

Cream Curry Udon (토끼정 크림 카레 우동)

One of the most popular dishes here is the super yummy Cream Curry Udon. If you visit, you definitely have to try it! The white cream makes it look like a dessert instead of a pasta.

Now, let's enjoy the udon! The manager suggested that it tastes better to eat directly from the bottom and instead of mixing it.

When we first saw the amount of cream, we thought that it would be too greasy after eating a few bites. However, the more you eat, the more addictive it is, and it's super delicious! Even once you're finished eating, you'll want to eat it again.

Pasta Tokki Bapsang (파스타 토끼밥상)
35,800 KRW (+1,000 KRW for cheese pork cutlet, +1,500 KRW for cube steak oil pasta)

When it comes to Tokkijung, you can't leave out the Bapsang sets. It's a set for two people, but honestly, it could probably feed three people.

The basic set, which costs 35,800 KRW, includes premium pork cutlet (프리미엄 카츠), a curry and a pasta. For curry, you can choose between Tokkijung curry (토끼정 카레), tomato curry (토마토 카레), or Vermont curry (바몬드 카레). You can adjust the spice levels.

For pasta, you can choose from basil shrimp cream pasta (바질 새우 크림 파스타), Neapolitan Hamburg pasta (나폴리탄 함바그 파스타), truffle mushroom oil pasta (트러플 머쉬룸 오일 파스타), and pollack roe cream pasta (명란 크림 파스타).

We changed it to cheese pork cutlet (치즈 카츠), so we had to pay an extra 1,000 KRW. It's an extra 1,500 KRW to change the pasta to cube steak oil pasta (큐브 스테이크 오일 파스타).

It also comes with two  bowls of rice, some side dishes, fruits and cookies for dessert!

First, let's eat the cheese pork cutlet. How delicious does the meat filled with cheese look? 

Eat it while it's still warm! The meat is crispy, flavorful, and matches with the cheese to be the perfect amount of savory and greasy. Just one bite and the rich flavor will fill your tastebuds.

You can dip it in the sauce or curry.

For curry, we chose Tokkijung Curry. It's basic and easy to eat. I don't really like curry, but it's really good here. It's not too salty and is thick. There's a bit of minced meat, green onions, and it's really tasty.

If you don't want the Cream Curry Udon, you can try this cube steak oil pasta. There's other toppings, but you'll be super impressed by the generous amount of steak on the plate.

The steak is very soft, fragrant, and well-cooked, so it retains its flavor and doesn't get tough.

18,800 KRW

Since we were already here, we decided to order more steak. This steak pan is huge with lots of pieces of steak along with french fries, rice, egg, broccoli, and asparagus. There were many ingredients.

Tokkijung's steak never disappoints. It's delicious, juicy, and soft and goes well with their sweet sauce. You can fully enjoy many delicious foods with this dish without having to order other items.

Tokkijung's drinks are also really good. One drink is big enough for two people!

It's supposed to be pomegranate, but there was also a strong grapefruit flavor. It's sour and refreshing, so perfect to drink with greasy food.

The Yuzu Tokki Soda combines the sweet, citrus taste with soda to create a refreshing drink.
