Grandmother's Knife-cut Noodles
Even though it looks like a shanty, the place is McDonald's efficient. Once you sit, your order is taken and 2 minutes later you have a piping hot bowl of noodle soup.
They have only two things on the menu: Knife cut noodles or Knife Cut Noodles with dumplings (sujebi) (In the summer they have Kongguksu: Chilled Soybean Milk Noodle Soup.)
Everything costs 4,000 won (about $3.50) for a humongoid bowl of noodley goodness. Kimchi is included.
Name: Halmoni Calguksu
Phone Number: ???
Directions: It's on the back streets of Jongno. If you go out exit 3 and go straight, make a left past barbecue restaurants until you come to a shop on the left with a huge crowd of people eating and an open kitchen where you see women cutting noodles. You'll probably see the women wearing pink aprons.
