Seoul Gasan Mario Outlet Kimchi Stew Specialty Restaurant “Banban Sikdang”

Gasan Digital Complex, located at the southern end of Seoul, is not only a densely populated office area but also an area densely packed with outlets. Thanks to this, you can find famous outlets in various places. Among them, “Mario Outlet” is the most well-known.

This place is operated in a total of three sections, and the most well-known is “Mario Outlet Section 3,” which is the closest to the subway.

If you go up to the higher floors in Gasan Mario Outlet Section 3, you can find several restaurants. On the 12th floor, alongside a Japanese ramen restaurant, there is a kimchi stew specialty restaurant called “Banban Sikdang.”

Here, you can find menu items such as kimchi stew and doenjang stew. The flagship menu item is likely the “Kimchi Stew.” The menu available at Banban Sikdang includes the following, and since it’s located in an outlet dining area, the prices are relatively affordable.

“Set Menu for 2: 19,500 won”

During this visit, we naturally ordered the kimchi stew. Since they offer set menus at reasonable prices, we opted for the set menu for two.

The ambiance of the restaurant is clean, and the food is served in an orderly manner, making it a great place to have a meal after shopping in the outlet.

It may not be a place you deliberately seek out, but if you need to grab a quick meal inside the building, especially after shopping at the outlet, it’s a good place to visit.
