Chebu-dong Janchi-jib is famous for their simple but delicious food. Located in a humble market alley space with aluminum sliding doors, its prices are easy on the wallet. Once you enter, you’re overwhelmed by the savory scent of simmering broth and something frying. The menu includes thirty or so dishes ranging from various types of jeon (savory pancakes), and noodles to dotorimuk (acorn jelly) and dumpling soup. If you want something simple and soothing, try the deul-ggaesujebi (hand-pulled dough dumplings in perilla seed soup). The thick, nutty broth and chewy dumplings pair up superbly. It’s also a great place for gatherings, because their dishes are the perfect accompaniment with makgeolli (Korean rice ale). Plus, at a janchijib (meaning “house holding a feast” in Korean), it’s only right that you enjoy good food with good friends.
