Ddungbo Halmae Gimbap

Top choice korean in Tongyeong

Hungry travellers with limited Korean skills come here because there’s no need to speak or read a menu: this place only serves chungmu gimbap (충무 김밥), a spicy squid-and-radish dish. The waitress will ask how many servings you want and, if necessary, she’ll use her fingers to count. It’s opposite the turtle ships in Gangguan.

One serving of this spicy dish, which will test the red-pepper tolerance of the hardiest Korean food lover, should be enough for a single person.
