Rice Wine and Handmade Pasta (Sujebi) by Hapjeong Station

Rule of thumb: When a restaurant is always full and they start turning people away at 8:30, there's a good chance that the food is good.

That seems to be the case at Bori-ool. Every time I've wandered down my favorite road, I've seen countless people inside. Last Wednesday, I finally went inside. It was alright. I mean it wasn't mind-blowing, but that doesn't mean I wouldn't want to go back, because I do. The place has comforting homemade food- the turnip water kimchi or turnip vichyssoise is refreshing. The turnip kimchi was also quite good- spicy, gingery, and crispy.

The handmade pasta soup (sujebi) had thick bow ties of flour pasta. They were chewy and nice. The soup was a tad too spicy- way too many chili peppers. Anyway, the broth was good because it had a bit of dried fish bonito flakes on top.

To finish off the meal, we had rice wine: dong dong ju.

It's easy to get to. Get out Hapjeong Station Exit 5 and walk down the street. It's on the right.

The Menu is moderately priced.
