What a gem it's been, in the midst of Sinchon. From its name to the character of the bar manager DJ Tiger Disco, there's nothing about this bar that is not unique. Even in the names of the dishes, you can sense the owner’s wit. The taste, though, of “the lemon dressing flowing over the Dong Po Rou (braised pork belly), Mao Zedong’s favorite,” “pork and shredded shallots, pan fried with Sr. Lee Kum Kee” and “cream sauce mackerel which used to be super popular in the 18th century France,” is no joke. The pollack roe rice dish which costs only 5,000 won is a must try, as well. In terms of solo drinking, Ingansilgyeokpae qualifies as more than perfect—it not only welcomes those who came in to drink alone but also forbids any group of more than 5 people. Alone, but with the chillest staff who'd let you feel a thing or 2 about life, art and other important things, you might discover the zen of solo drinking.
Solo drinking tip: the bar's currently in hiatus, with the plan for a new venue. Keep tuning in for good news.
