Korean Foodie

Open since 1946, original owner was my father’s friend and have sister restaurants in New York and Washington DC. I have been going to this place since I was a little girl in the 70’s and the place was and still is simply the best place to have North Korean style Bulgogi and Naegmyeon (cold noodles in soup) in Seoul.

For the nostalgia and noodles Editors' Note

Woo Rae Ok is another popular older restaurant where Mool Naeng Myun (Cold buckwheat noodle with broth) is the traditional favorite. The restaurant is also one of the most famous in the city for the celebrity connoisseurs who love old generation Korean.

For a bit of beefy, salty and generous helping of old time favorites, this is maybe the best such restaurant in the city. The prices are not bad either, considering the quality and mystique of past greatness.
