“Wumen Jajangmyeon: 11,900 KRW”

I visited COEX to attend an event, and after concluding business meetings, I decided to have a simple lunch. Considering that more meetings were scheduled after lunch, I opted for a quick taste of their Wumen Jajangmyeon.

Priced at approximately 12,000 KRW, it seemed reasonable by COEX standards. Wumen Guan is not only a convenient spot for a quick meal at COEX but also an excellent choice for those with the time to explore set menus or main dishes.
