Seoul Gwanghwamun Opisia Building Hong Kong Restaurant: Oh Hansu Beef Noodle

The Gwanghwamun area in Seoul is a prominent office district where numerous office workers are based. Various dining establishments tailored to these office workers can be found throughout the area, primarily in the underground shopping arcades of large buildings.

Even in the underground shopping arcade of the “Opseeya Building,” located southwest of Gwanghwamun Square, you can find a concentration of diverse restaurants.

Notably, Oh Hansu Beef Noodle can be found in several locations around Gwanghwamun. It can also be found in the Royal Building underground shopping arcade, located to the west of Gwanghwamun Square. However, this time, I visited the branch in the Opisia Building.

On this day, I ordered the Hong Kong Beef Brisket Noodles, which cost 9,200 KRW for a single serving. Thanks to this, I was able to taste food commonly enjoyed in Hong Kong at a reasonable price, without actually visiting the city.
