Authentic Busan Cuisine: Foodway Mokjangwon Oct 25, 2013
This restaurant is situated on top of a hill with a nice sea view. It is notably famous for Korean beef barbecue and cold noodles dishes. We even bumped into a Busan politician who had lunch in this restaurant while on our way there.

We ordered two portions of Korean beef and one portion of Australian beef with quality marbling. The barbecue meat was really tender. I have to give them credit for their baek kimchi (white kimchi). I'm usually not a fan of kimchi but I couldn't resist having some here. It was mild and refreshing.

After finishing our scrumptious barbecue, we ordered cold noodles. AT and Mr Kim had bibim naengmyeon (spicy cold noodles) while I had mul naengmyeon (cold noodles in broth). In Busan, grilled pieces of dried fish were added into the spicy cold noodles although beef slices were commonly used in other parts of South Korea. Afterall, Busan is famous for its fisheries products. Mr Kim mentioned that the taste of spicy cold noodles here were not too different from his childhood days. Personally, I prefer cold noodles in light beef broth for a more subtle flavor after a hearty meat feast.

It was interesting to note that since Joseon dynasty, Korean people had a peculiar habit of consuming piping hot ginseng chicken soup in the peak of summer and cold noodles during winter. The reason being hot soup will cause them to break a sweat which then cools down their body temperature while ice was only available during winter months to make cold noodles. In late Joseon dynasty, King Gojong enjoyed having cold noodles in beef broth for supper as he disliked spicy and salty food.

Our entire feast there came close to KRW 97,500. It seemed like food in Busan were at least 30% cheaper than that in Seoul. Not only was our meal here excellent but it was money's worth. Do make reservation for window seats so that one may enjoy a great feast with even more spectacular sea view.
