If you’ve never tried Pyeongyang-style naengmyeon (noodles in icy cold broth) before, this is where you should start. Together with Pyeongyang-myeonok of Jangchung-dong, Wooraeok of Jugyo-dong, and Eulmildae of Yeomri-dong, Pildong Myeonok represents Seoul’s very best in naengmyeon culture. If you’ve become accustomed to sweet naengmyeon, you may feel cheated after you try your first bite of Pyeongyang-style naengmyeon since the broth is a bit more bland and the noodles break more easily. But after a few more bites you are bound to end up addicted to the deep and subtle taste. One unique feature of Pildong Myeonok’s naengmyeon is that it is served with chili powder sprinkled on top. Dumplings and grilled pork dishes are also available. Pildong-myeonok and Eulji-myeonok are run by siblings. The two stores originate from Pyeongyang Myeonok in Uijeongbu which was opened by their father.
