Mangwon Market is our local traditional market. It’s nothing fancy like Gwangjang Market downtown with its rows of food stalls, vintage section and Hanbok section but, Mangwon Market has some good eats and it’s within close proximity to Hongdae and the Han River so it’s easy to stop by, grab some food and be on your way.
Fermented soybean paste soup, or deonjang jjigae (된장찌개), is one of those very common soups to see on restaurant tables as well as in the home. It’s one of those soups that also might take a little time to get used to with it’s salty taste.
Janchiguksu 잔치국수 is a common meal in Korean homes while also common at wedding buffets and other major events. It’s a warm and light soup that fills you up without weighing you down. It is one of my all time favorites that I could eat anytime. It’s a pretty straightforward noodle soup with fish broth and some vegetables to top it off. It’s a good basic Korean soup to learn and from there, you can shoot for the more difficult stews.
