Ohyang Mandu is the kind of place you seriously debate keeping a secret. After all, they have THE best fried mandu (dumplings) in Yeonhui-dong. An ample amount of pork with vegetables is tucked inside each thick mandu skin. Thick mandu wrappers are generally better for pan frying or deep frying, so if you're a fan of chewy fried mandu skins, you won't be disappointed. When it comes to the steamed mandu, customers tend to be split on the results, which some find too gummy and others find just right.
After appeasing hungry stomachs with either fried, steamed, meat, or boiled mandu, many customers opt to enjoy a beer or soju with either ohyang jangyuk (five spice sliced steamed pork), yangjang-pi (assorted seafood and vegetables with mustard sauce), buchu-japche (stir-fried glass noodles with leek), or tangsuyuk (sweet and sour pork). Be forewarned: the owner, who is responsible for the kitchen, and the server are both middle aged and tend to work a little on the slow side. They are not the friendliest but nor are they unpleasant. Ohyang Mandu became more famous after they moved their restaurant from Dongyo-dong to Yeonhui-dong. Old-timers may be disappointed to see that prices have increased, but we still think it's worth it.
