Ilmi Hwapyeongdong Naengmyeon

Ilmi Hwapyeongdong Naengmyeon specializes in naengmyeon, Korean-style cold noodles with a twist. Chewy noodles and a sweet, light broth make for a dish that is as refreshing as it is tasty. But unlike most naengmyeon joints, which tend to add Asian pear for a cooling crunch, this unique joint utilizes watermelon to create the effect. The sweetness of the fruit pairs delightfully with the saltiness of the bibim spicy sauce that is sure to cool you down on the hottest of days.

Decorated with red lanterns and fai chun, Gonghwachun also serves up a variety of dumplings, buns and several set meals that are worth trying.

The Italian-style cuisine served at Chapter 1 is excellent as the dishes are designed and prepared by Chapter 1’s professional chef de cuisine, who is a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu. Their wide range of pizzas, pastas and salads are all finely embellished with side dishes that are at once tasty and decorative. Chapter 1 tries to involve diners in the cooking process as much possible, so while there is no open kitchen, they broadcast the kitchen as the chefs prepare the food.
