Cycle 1 – Item 63

at Din Hao
-Yeonnam, Mapo, Seoul, Korea-
Here and there, on a few scattered blocks within the neighborhood of Yeonnam-Dong (연남동) in the northwestern quadrant of the city, near Hongik University, a handful of restaurants serve what they claim to be Taiwan-style food. I’ve never had food in Taiwan, so I have no point of comparison. All I can say is that the dishes are refreshingly different than anything found in mainstream Chinese restaurants in Korea. If only for that reason, the area deserves further exploration.
