Cycle 13 – Item 121
6 (Fri) April 2022
at Iri Garden
-Seokwha, Seowon, Hoengseong, Gangwon, Republic of Korea-
with W, IZ, Mom, Uncle S
We have access to 3 excellent restaurants within a 10-minute drive of the cabin, including Cheogajib (see 10.359 Haemul Jjambbong), Gogi Nara (12.054 3-Year-Old Kimchi), and Iri Garden (11.307 Neungi Baeksuk), better than anything in Seoul. Which is noteworthy, as the Korean countryside isn’t generally known for good eats (at least as far as I’m aware). I’m wondering if the private golf/ski resorts in the area push local eateries to up their game.
Confirmed, the dubu jjim at Iri Garden is perfection (see most recently 12.207 Dubu Jjim). Even better at the source, where unlimited banchan are provided in full.
