Baeknyeon Sikdang (백년식당) is a Korean restaurant. Offers only 4 dishes: dubu jjigae, jeyuk bokkeum, samgyeopsal, makguksu, as listed on the window next to the front door. One of 4 restaurants in “downtown” Seowon.
Our first choice for dinner was already closed – in the countryside, restaurants often close by 19:00, as locals (mostly farmers) tend to eat dinner very early – so we tried a place that we’d never been to, though we pass by it every time going to/from the cabin.
The food was decent. The dubu jjigae, more of a jeongol (hotpot) than a stew (jjigae), was nowhere near as good as the dish at Iri Garden (see most recently 13.121 Dubu Jjim), but solid. Overall, we had a nice meal.
