While walking through the streets of Mangwon-dong, it might be easy to confuse this venue with flower pots outside for a café. Although the exterior resembles a cozy café, the menu and the atmosphere inside will reveal a hip izakaya-like bar. Zoooop (with four o’s) is named as such so as to resemble the sound of slurping a bowl of soup. The bar, located only a short walk from the market, is operated by its fashionable, young manager Choi Ji-hye. Two of the most loved dishes on the menu include either the Nagasaki jjamppong and the black-bean tteokboki (slightly greasy, but just as addictive as bar food should be). All of the seafood used in their dishes is bought daily from the nearby market and the restaurant itself remains a favorite amongst the young community in the neighborhood.
