Located right in the heart of Cheonan are so many places to eat that choosing one can leave you befuddled. Life can be simple. Kitty-corner from the Arario (artsy bakery restaurant) is a two story building . Look for the smiling pig in the window on the second floor. If you arrived by bus you can't miss the art shop restaurant. It is the one with the torso of a man in the window. On the bottom floor of the building across the street, in the far right-hand corner is The Pi-Bim -bap Shop. Shown here is Bim bim bap without the egg. Usually, there is an egg, but since I don't like uncooked eggs, I ask them to not even put one in. Getting the cook to make one hard is difficult. Also, there is no red pepper paste. If you don't want the stomach from hell and choose to leave out the pepper paste try "ko chew chahng ahn wahn hahmneedah." This type of restaurant is found everywhere, but this one is special because of the cleanliness, price and cheerful attitude of the owner.
Favorite Dish: Bi-Bim-Bap is a simple dish of cooked rice, vegetables, served with a sem-cooked egg and a healthy dollop of red pepper paste which you stir altogether until everything is coated with pepper paste so there can be no escape from the eternally burning mouth. Without the pepper paste it is quite good. The side dishes will include a bit of sesame oil mixed with soy sauce which you can dip spoons of rice into for an extra taste. You can also order kim-bap here. Kim-bap consists of long strips of meat, vegetables, rice and squares of seaweed (kim). The rice and other goodies are rolled into the seaweed, then slice into easily managed pices about 1/3rd inch thick.
Remember the pig in the window upstairs? That is our favorite Tong Casu restaurant. Tong casu is a pork cutlet. The one upstairs is the best I've ever eaten. Since it is one of my favorite meals, I am THE AUTHORITY on tong casu. This is the best.
There aren't any buses to Beopjusa, so you will have to rent a car or bribe a friend. Beopju-sa is about 65 miles east of Cheonan, up in the mountains. The standing golden Buddha is one of the prettiest in Korea. Maybe not the biggest, but with the dark green setting of the trees behind, the blue sky trimming the mountain, it is one of the most...more
