Where to eat Korean food in Sokcho: The Best Restaurants and Bars

August 1, 2020 Layne Dawes

Find out what Korean restaurants to try in Sokcho. Sokcho (속초; (Korean pronunciation: [sok̚.tɕʰo])) is a city in Gangwon-do province, South Korea. It is located in the far northeast of Gangwon-do. Lying north of the 38th parallel, the city belonged to North Korea from 1945 until the end of the Korean War, when the dividing line between the two Korean states was officially altered. Abai Maeul was originally set up as an area to house North Korean refugees in Sokcho due to the separation of the two Koreas. Consequently, many of the population have relatives in North Korea. Today, Sokcho receives a number of tourists attracted by the closeness to the DMZ. The city is also a well-known gateway to nearby Seoraksan national park.

Impossible de passer à Sokcho sans goûter la spécialité locale, le sundae (calamar farci). Dans ce resto, il est excellent. Un plat suffit largement pour 2 personnes (25000 KRW). Personnel très sympathique mais qui ne parle pas trop anglais (on montre la photo pour choisir). Tables basses et tables normales sur la terrasse et à l'entrée. Resto fréquenté uniquement par des locaux, on peut se garer gratuitement juste à côté. Si le sundae ne vous tente pas, la soupe de boeuf est bonne (8000 KRW). Bière à 4000 KRW. Le resto est facile à trouver. Vous pouvez prendre le bac pour aller de l'autre côté (200 KRW la traversée qui dure 2 minutes). Une bonne adresse.

Sokcho Jeonbok Haemul Ddukbaegi

Reviewed By Aryun

We are not seafood lovers nor people who search out abalone, a popular delicacy in Korea, Yet this soup, we enjoyed~So, on our walk past this place towards the seaport, we saw a huge line of Koreans outside this restaurant. Well, monkey see, monkey do. After being awesomely disappointed by the portside food, we ended up on the line. At 18,000 krw each, the abalone soup is designed for one person and the more expensive seafood soup is designed for two. After balking at the prices for a bit, we got one of each. We had to make the line wait worth it. The soups were similar, but the abalone one had a richer taste with a hint of bean paste. The seafood was really fresh with very little of the "fishy" smell. Apparently, they only use the day's catch and sometimes close early if they run out of the day's catch. Don't know if that part is true, but we enjoyed it. Been trying seafood more regularly since, but it never got quite as good. This might seem pricey, but for us, it was well worth it.

CY ( 2015.07.12 ) This restaurant was famous for cold raw fish soup in Sokcho. Meoguri means Diver in old saying. This restaurant's representative food was cold raw fish, Mulhoe. I and my wife ordered this food and Stuffed Squid was famous food in Sokcho. Many people enjoyed this food, and too many people crowded. So this resaurant operated number ticket system. The food was delicious, and recommendable.

Manseok Dakkangjeong Jungang Market Branch Store

Reviewed By GlobetrotterJ16

When I heard that there was a famous chicken place at the market I didn't expect much quite frankly. The market is quite nice for a stroll, lots of seafood and chicken places. The chicken is sold in boxes and one can see tons of people walking around the market with these boxes in their hands. So wondering what the hype was about we bought a box of chicken, I think it was one kilo or so. The chicken is very nice, boneless, nice sauce, a bit spicy but not too much. So once I started with a few pieces it grew on me and I had another and another one. There is something about this chicken. when we went back to Seoul all I could think about is this chicken, which is actually available at one location in Seoul as well. I highly recommend to try this chicken, but be aware, it might be addictive.

I heard so much about this chicken, so tasty to get it express delivered from other region.Well, maybe I had too high hopes for this chicken dish.It was nice, tasty, but not that I would long for afterwards.I was more impressed with other sweet & spicy marinated chicken you can get at any specialized chicken restaurants in Korea. There are so many of them everywhere in Korea anyway. Why there is no such dish in anywhere else but Korea? It really is finger licking good!Anyway, back to this restaurant, if you are near the town, it might be worth to drop by and have a go.
