Delicious dumplings that are a little salty. Menu is on the walls so don't be shy and call out what you want! Water/cutlery/radishes are self serve. We had a mixture of fried and steamed dumplings and they came straight away, hot and fresh. Deliciously flavoured with a decent filling/pastry ratio. The place was jam packed when we were there and due to being next to the open kitchen we came away smelling like fried dumplings... otherwise a great snack/light lunch when sightseeing.

A small little shop where their dumplings are excellence! The combo plate is good for sharing. A good place to pop in for a quick bite after walking around Bukchon area. Will return when I next visit Seoul.

After strolling around Bukchon Hanok village we end up at Insadong. Saw a long queue forming outside this local restaurant Bukchon Son Mandu so we decided to join them. Waited about 20mins to get a seat inside this small and cramp space. We ordered Buchon cold noodles and dumplings combination. And we are so glad that we gave it a try. It is so delicious that we make it a point this will be 1 of the must visit restaurant for our next trip.

We really enjoy coming to this little eatery hidden away in a back alley in Insadong. We have been going to this place for a number of years and they never disappoint.

We like the yaki mandu (deep fried) and the mandu guk (mandu dumpling soup) and can really recommend this to start things off.

Give it a try!!
