“Nasan Galbi, Sadang Station Restaurant”

Nasan Galbi is one such restaurant, offering excellent value for money near Sadang Station. While their signature dish is the Gopchang Jeongol (tripe hot pot), they also serve Ssambap (lettuce wraps) and Grilled Mackerel in addition to their main menu.

During my recent lunch visit, I ordered Ssambap for two and added Grilled Mackerel. The portions turned out to be quite generous.

“A Neatly Presented Meal”

Whether it was because we ordered for three people or not, a remarkably hearty spread was laid before us. Even if we had ordered just for two, it would have been more than sufficient for a substantial meal.

Ordering Ssambap for two included complimentary Doenjang Jjigae (soybean paste stew), and with the addition of Grilled Mackerel, we enjoyed a rich variety of flavors.

With a price of 8,000 won per person, considering the current rising prices, it’s an affordable option offering a satisfying and ample meal.
