Sukyeong Sikdang

Top choice korean in Gyeongju

Since 1979, this cosy restaurant with a delightfully cluttered and rustic interior has been serving tasty pajeon (파전; scallion pancake; ₩10,000) made from organic ingredients and homemade, ice-cold and slushy dongdongju (동동주; rice wine) which goes for ₩6000 for almost a litre or ₩10,000 for almost two. It’s near the east wall of Tumuli-gongwon and has English-, Korean- and Chinese-speaking staff.

The rice wine is not strong, so no need to go easy on it.
