Many said Gwangju has a lot of delicious food, even though my recent trip is short, we did our best to try as much of local cuisine as we can along the way. Personally, I tend to favour vegetarian meals more, this buckwheat noodle is right to my taste! I am not good in describing taste of food, but I just wanna say I LOVE THIS NOODLE! It is even on Michelin list of restaurants. This noodle costs me just 5000W.
This place is closer to Geunamno 4-ga Station, but actually it is not far from Culture Complex Station if you are sightseeing over there.
Information from VisitKorea Website: “Located on Chungjang-ro Street in Gwangju, Cheongwon Momil has been a staple of Gwangju’s dining scene since it opened in 1960. The two most popular styles of momil (buckwheat noodles) served at the restaurant are momil in a warm broth and dried momil, which comes with a dipping sauce for the noodles. The restaurant provides only two side dishes, kkakdugi (diced radish kimchi) and pickled radishes, but they are expertly prepared and the flavors blend well with the momil.
The momil broth, which is the most important factor influencing each dish’s taste, is slow cooked with anchovies and vegetables over a long period of time. For its flavor and tradition, Cheongwon Momil comes recommended by the Michelin Guide, so make sure to stop by to sample some of the best momil in Korea.”
