When you exit from Gate 3 of Sindorim Station, you’ll find a place called “International Culture Food Street.” It’s a street located south of E-Mart where you can find various restaurants selling delicious food. While the name suggests a variety of international cuisines, most of the restaurants here serve dishes that we are familiar with.
“Tofu Village,” a restaurant specializing in kimchi stew, is one such place. I had the opportunity to visit Sindorim after a long time. I had a lunch appointment in Sindorim, and after wandering around the International Culture Food Street, I decided to dine here.
