You can also find Yoogane Dakgalbi in the vicinity of Gwangmyeong Cheolsan Station. It’s located close to Exit 1 of Cheolsan Station on Subway Line 7. However, it’s relatively located at the end of the commercial district, making it somewhat challenging to find. It’s situated on the second floor of a building, so it’s relatively inconspicuous.

This time, we ordered the representative menu item, Yoogane Dakgalbi. It was available for KRW 8,500 for one serving and KRW 17,000 for two servings.

First, we enjoyed the dakgalbi, and for the finishing touch, we had the fried rice. After having both the dakgalbi and fried rice, we were able to have a satisfying meal.
