Korean food and noodles that can be quickly eaten by one person

Korean food with a large number of menus such as yakiniku and samgyeopsal. In Korea, where you can easily access from Japan, many people travel alone.

Noodle dishes can be quickly eaten at such times! It is a menu that can be eaten not only in downtown, but also in department stores and supermarkets, and is characterized by its low price.

This time I would like to introduce local noodle dishes that are popular in Korea, along with recommended shops.

First of all, we will introduce “Champon” in Korea. There are “champons” in Japan, but Japanese champons feature cloudy soup.

On the other hand, Korean champon is known as a “hot spicy gourmet” among the many noodle dishes and features a red soup. Super-spicy soup contains thick noodles with plenty of ingredients such as pork, seafood, and vegetables!

In Japan, such as Shin-Okubo, you can get it at a Korean restaurant, so please try it.

“Water-cooled noodles” are characterized by a refreshing taste. The cold noodles we eat at Japanese yakiniku restaurants are these water-cooled noodles.

The special soup made from beef bones is thick but cold and refreshing! Japanese cold noodles are gorgeous, and some of them have fruits on them, but Korean water-cooled noodles are simple.


A specialty store of Pyongyang cold noodles that is gaining popularity in Seoul. It features thick noodles made from buckwheat flour and starch, and the dashi taken from beef bones has a rich taste.

There are a lot of local regular customers, and it is not uncommon to form a queue in a residential area. I recommend visiting as soon as the store opens.

Many people thought that cold noodles usually have soup! There are various kinds of cold noodles in Korea, and “Bibin cold noodles” are so popular that they line up with the water-cooled noodles we introduced earlier.

Bibin cold noodles are characterized by the lack of soup, a dish that has the image of a “mixed soba” with a sweet and spicy sauce on top of the noodles. Bibin cold noodles are eaten throughout the year but are especially recommended in hot summers.
