Destinations / Asia

Geyongju might be known for its incredible historic sites, but the coastal Korean city also boasts an impressive dining scene. Check out these restaurants while you tour the town.


Hongsi Hanjungsik

Hongsi Hanjungsik serves traditional Korean fare on a set menu of up to 17 plates. The unassuming atmosphere and fresh ingredients make for an incredible dining experience, and the namesake frozen persimmon dessert is worth a visit on its own.


Daegu Galbi

From the outside, Daegu Galbi looks like nothing more than a hole-in-the-wall. Inside, you’ll be delighted by an impressive selection of grilled ribs served in unique pewter dishes, and a welcoming atmosphere.


An evening at Yosukgung is something special. Each diner is treated to his/her own room in a garden setting, and served a set menu all at once. Guests are also expected to sit on the floor, so be prepared before you arrive.


Byeolchaeban Gyodong Ssambap

Byeolchaeban Gyodong Ssambap is perfect for an authentic Korean experience as they make little attempt to cater to tourists. The staff doesn’t speak English, but communicates well through body language, and the dishes are always fresh and tasty. It’s also right across the street from the tombs, providing excellent views.


Katsu Shin

Katsu Shin is a Japanese restaurant with a Korean twist. The menu features a variety of delicious pork cutlets served alongside kimchi. Though the staff doesn’t speak English, the entire menu has pictures to help you along.
