Seoul Yeouido Pyongyang Naengmyeon Restaurant “Jungin Myeonok”

Jungin Myeonok was originally a specialized Pyongyang Naengmyeon (cold buckwheat noodles) restaurant located in Gwangmyeong Market. There is still a Jungin Myeonok in Gwangmyeong, which has been passed down to the owner’s friend and continues its legacy. The original owner has relocated to “Yeouido” and continues to operate the restaurant.

“Yeouido Jungin Myeonok Opened in 2014”

Jungin Myeonok in Yeouido opened in 2014. After the move to Yeouido, it was selected in the 2018 Michelin Guide “Bib Gourmand.” Additionally, it has won the Blue Ribbon award for four consecutive years, which can be considered as Korea’s own Michelin Guide. (Currently, the Michelin Guide only evaluates and selects restaurants in the “Seoul” area in Korea. Other regions have not yet been evaluated and selected. Jungin Myeonok was eligible for the Michelin Guide as it relocated to Yeouido, Seoul.)

“Pyongyang Naengmyeon Specialist, Jungin Myeonok”

Jungin Myeonok specializes in Pyongyang Naengmyeon, inheriting the taste of Pyongyang Naengmyeon passed down from the owner’s parents who are originally from North Korea. Considering it’s a Pyongyang Naengmyeon restaurant in Yeouido, the prices are reasonable, with one bowl of Pyongyang Naengmyeon priced at 10,000 KRW.

The Pyongyang Naengmyeon at Jungin Myeonok is authentic and has the characteristic mild flavor of Pyongyang Naengmyeon. It offers a comfortable taste without being overly stimulating.

Additionally, if needed, you can order the “Yangmani” version from the beginning without adding extra noodles, allowing you to have a larger portion for your meal. It’s good to keep this in mind before placing an order.

“A Considerable-sized Restaurant”

Jungin Myeonok is quite spacious. The size of the space allows a large number of people to visit at once. There are tables set up in the hall, and in some areas, there are seating spaces where you can take off your shoes and enjoy your meal comfortably.

With ample space, it seems capable of accommodating up to about 100 people simultaneously. It’s also suitable for group visits, making it a good restaurant for gatherings. The overall atmosphere of the restaurant is well-maintained and provides a welcoming environment.
