Kal Mandu Guk
at Onjeong Son Mandu
-Sinjeong, Yangcheon, Seoul, Republic of Korea-
After a needlessly protracted process (see 11.233 Gogi Mandu), the Republic of Korea has finally seen fit to grant me an F4 visa, so I am now a legal alien. I obtained my card at the immigration office this morning. Yay.
As before, I timed the visit so that I could eat lunch at Onjeong Son Mandu. I ordered Kal Mandu Guk (칼만두국), a combination of cut noodles (kal guksu) and dumplings (mandu) in soup (guk).
I hope that I won’t have to come back to the immigration for a long while – the visa is valid for 3 years – but I’ll be sure to eat at this restaurant when I do.
