Michelin-Rated Authentic Mainland Chinese Food

Jin Jin

When most people think of Chinese food in Korea, the first thing that pops into their minds are jjajangmyeon (black bean noodles) and tangsuyuk (sweet and sour fried pork). However, a plethora of authentic mainland Chinese restaurants have opened over the past few years due to the influx of Chinese students and workers, and its Jin Jin in Mangwon-dong that stands out from the pack with its Michelin rating. The menu is limited to around ten dishes to ensure the quality and taste of the food. Following the authentic Chinese style, many dishes at Jin Jin are spicy or deep fried and go wonderfully well with Kaoliang wine (strong Chinese distilled liquor). It's a great place to go with your friends or family to enjoy the food and company. If you plan on staying in Seoul for a while, you can become a Jin Jin member for 30,000 won and receive a lifetime 20% discount on all your meals. 


The chef of Jin Jin, Wang Yuk Sung, has over 40 years experience as a chef and spent much of his time heading the kitchen of the world-renown Koreana Hotel in Gwanghwamun. After one guest of the hotel complained to him about the high price of the food, he decided to take on a new challenge and open a restaurant that sold high-quality mainland Chinese food for an affordable price. Since it opened its doors in 2015, Jin Jin has become a hotspot for diners from across the Seoul metropolitan area.
