Classic Gamjatang Restaurant in Euljiro

Dongwon Jip


Nestled in an aging building in an alley in one of Seoul’s most classic districts, Euljiro, Dongwon Jip serves up arguably one of the best bowls of gamjatang, pork backbone stew, in all of the city. Listed on the menu here as gamjaguk, an individual bowl costs only 7,000 won and is packed to the brim with massive chunks of juicy, tender meat that slides easily off the bones and potatoes softened and flavored by the delectable, mildly spicy broth. The massive portions make this an incredibly filling dish; a real bang for your buck.


There are also plenty of other dishes available, such as meorigogi, slices of meat from a pig’s head, sundae, glass noodles cased inside pig intestines, and hongeo, fermented skate which is a delicacy in the southwest part of the country. Each of these dishes pairs well with soju, making this a popular establishment amongst workers in the area come evening when the work day comes to an end. Dongwon Jip was also featured on the popular food program Suyokmisikhwe, which has helped bring in more young customers. The restaurant consists of three floors, with the third floor acting as a sort of terrace space, perfect to dine in during the Spring and Fall. Seating is abundant, although during peak hours in the evening you might have to wait a few minutes to be seated.
