Gangnam Myeonok is a Korean restaurant chain. Currently 20 locations around the country. Specializes in northern-style cuisine, including Hamheung-style mul naeng myeon and mandu.
Not a fan of their MNM, which was reviewed at the Wirye branch (12.085 Taste Test: HHS v PYS) – not a fan of Hamheung-style MNM in general.
The mandu guk is good. The dumplings are a bit too garlicky/oniony for my tastes, but they’re handmade and fresh. The soup is clear beef stock, rejuvenating on days when I need a boost (comforting when I’m feeling under the weather). A nice, simple, fulfilling dish for lunch.
