There are plenty of delicious jjampong and jjajeongmyeon places to go to in yeonnam-dong or yeonhui-dong but the lines are long, the tables are full, and the diners are often drunk and loud, no place to go on a special occasion or with family. Larger and nicer restaurants are fully booked with long waitlists, no thanks to popular cooking shows that have raised chefs to celebrity status. But to jump to a hotel restaurant will put your wallet in danger. Considering all these factors, the Chinese place to go to on a special night is Baljae Restaurant. Recently relocated from near Dosan Park to The K Twin Tower across Gyeongbok Palace, Baljae offers fist-rate traditional Chinese cuisine. The atmosphere is also unlike normal Chinese restaurants in Seoul, classy and modern. Rather than the course menu, try the unique dishes such as XO fried rice and doenjang jjajang that you won’t find anywhere else.
