Ddeokbokki Ban + Sundae Ban
at Eomuk Nara
-Seongsu, Seongdong, Seoul, Republic of Korea-
As previously noted, Eomuk Nara (어묵나라) has 3 consecutive branches in subway stations along Line 2, starting with Ttukseom (see 13.341 Eomuk Gimbap), then Seongsu, then Konkuk University.
After dropping off my car at the Land Rover Service Center, which is near Seongsu Station, I dropped by Eomuk Nara for a snack.
The food was fine, pretty much the same as Ttukseom.
I appreciate that they offer a plate of half (ban) ddeokbokki and half (ban) sundae, the ultimate street food duo – too much if ordered as full portions of each (see for example 4.363 Ddeokbokki + Sundae), but easily resolved by ordering sundae and requesting ddeokbokki sauce on top, which sometimes comes with a few rice cakes (see for example 3.134 Sundae in Ddeokbokki Sauce).
The differences in menu options – they don’t offer gimbap here, which is very popular at Ttukseom – suggests independence in management/ownership.
