Sundae in Ddeokbokki Sauce
-Apgujeong, Gangnam, Seoul, Republic of Korea-
Ssandungine has moved from its original location as a food stall in the middle of Sinsa Sijang (see 4.636 Ddeokbokki + Sundae) to a new brick-and-mortar restaurant within the market. Same menu. Happened a few years back.
As with any dramatic change to an existing landmark, it seems like something’s been lost in transition. Before, the stall (and food) was kinda icky but fun, warm, communal. Now, the restaurant (and food) is clean but feels sorta cold and soulless.
