From the outside, this place might come off like one of the numerous soulless all-the-same-taste-fried-China-noodles-locations you can find in every city in the world. And even when entering, this place does not exactly convince its visitors with charming, homey coziness or a stylish design. You will rather find a little old-fashioned, plain interior and simpler, reserved service (I suggest ordering and paying at the counter if you’d like to avoid long waiting).
However, SO NA MU’s external appearance completely understates the incredibly delicious, non-Europeanized Korean food you will be able to enjoy here. Plus, even though it might look like it, this is not a fast food restaurant – be prepared to spend some time here. In return, the family who runs the place will create the most wonderful dishes, freshly cooked right in front of you.
You will be spoiled with amazingly delicious (and spicy) Bibimbab (a type of artfully arranged salad) with tons of fresh garlic, greatly marinated meat and tasty Kimchi, still bubbling hot Dubu Zzige (stew) with a lot of ginger or fancy meat dishes like Bulgogi… so good!
