Makeoli and Korean seafood pancake (전). There is always a reason why Koreans eat and/or something - I'm not sure why, but when it's rainy day, Koreans picture it to be a perfect day to have eat and drink this combination Korean alcohol and Korean savoury seafood pancake! There's a bright side to every storm! 

Makeoli - a fizzy Korean light alcohol, somewhat creamy, sort of sweet and slightly carbonated and grainy...depends which brew you get - but the alcohol content is usually only 5-8%, so it's light like a beer!

A clean and charming Korean gem of a find within the mix of continuously changing and Westernised area of HBC = Hae Bang Chon (해방촌). Serves home-brew craft 막거리 (Makeoli = Korean wheat/rice alcoholic beverage) paired with delicious and reasonably priced 안주 (anju) = food you eat while you drink.

5 new samples of 막거리 (Makeoli) each week! Each brew is from a different region in Korea, and in the menu, there is a map and description of why each one is special in it's own way!

해물파전 (HaeMool PahJun) = Savoury seafood pancake mostly w. squid, shrimp and green onions. Very hot, crispy and delicious! Goes perfect with the soy-sauce w. a bite of onion/green onion each time!

Beautiful. It was good here, but my favourite place for this dish is still at 마폴나(Mapo Naru) in Acro Tower, B1.

고등어 구이 (GoDengUh Gooey) = Grilled mackeral. Grilled to perfection with a salty crispy outside and soft flaky chunks of fish . Easy to debone down the middle, and goes so well with the vinegary balsamic 부추 (Boo Choo) = Korean greens w. onions.

도토리묵 (DoToRi Mook) = Ground acorn jelly mixed with lettuce, carrots, cucumber and onions with a spicy, salty, garlicky soy-sauce dressing! If you like the consistency of jello, you will like this. The acorn jelly itself has no taste, so it's the delicious seasoning of the dressing that is the kicker of this dish!
