Suncheon Hoegwan (순천회관) is a Korean restaurant. Specializes in dishes involving ggomak.
Ggomak (꼬막) is a type of small cockle. In Korea, the most common method of preparation is to parboil the cockles then dress them in a spicy garlic soy sauce; “muchim (무침)” refers generally to the tossing of ingredients and seasonings into a salad-like mix.
Though this restaurant came highly recommended (on the internet, for whatever that’s worth), the cockles in the muchim weren’t that fresh and the dressing was a bit weak. 10,000 won.
On the upside, the menu offered many small appetizers of this sort at relatively reasonable prices, some as low as 10,000 won, giving us the opportunity to sample several items rather than invest in one large platter of a single dish.
