    MINT restaurant aka The Glass House: Famous Restaurant with a View

    by chatterley Written Dec 25, 2012

    This restaurant is well known for its food (it serves fusion Korean food) and view. It is located at the tip of the Phoenix Island Resort and was built with glass windows all around, so diners can see the Seongsan Ichulbong (Sunrise Peak) very clearly from the restaurant. Quite a few Korean dramas had been filmed inside this restaurant.

    It was freezing cold when we got there (it had been drizzling that day) and were we glad to get a table inside the warm and cosy restaurant! For lunch, we each ordered one of their famous lunch special sets - The Badang Set (which cost 48,000 KRW) and the Orum Set (38,000 KRW).

    We had grilled Jeju abalones, fried oyster and grilled scallop, tenderlion steak, sashimi, pork neck steak etc. Very satisfying meal in a beautiful restaurant with great views!

    Tip: If you want to ensure a good view - reserve a table.

    Dunkin Donuts: Coffee and Donuts!

    by chatterley Written Dec 25, 2012

    Our stay at the hotel did not include breakfast, so we would take a morning stroll to the nearby Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts for brekkie.

    This Dunkin Donuts outlet at the Jungmun Tourist Complex (opposite the Teddy Bear Museum) had been previously featured in some Korean TV show - they had a cute heart-shaped seat for couples outside their entrance.

    Myung-Ga: Korean Restaurant at The Suites Hotel

    by chatterley Written Dec 25, 2012

    Packed with customers at night during dinner service - lots of customers here order the BBQ set meals cos of the great value and quality of food.

    We had BBQ beef on the first night, then returned for their cold noodles, bibimbap and other dishes. Prices were very reasonable (e.g. 12,000 KRW for a bibimbap). Service was also good.

    Favorite Dish: Beef BBQ - service staff was attentive and helped us to BBQ the meat, and the food was good!

    Local Jeju Dishes: Samwonjeong

    by chatterley Written Dec 25, 2012

    We asked our taxi driver whom we've hired for our day trips for a recommendation. It was time for lunch and we wanted to try the Jeju specialty - black pig BBQ (pork belly). He brought us to this restaurant, located quite near to the Jungmun Tourist Complex.

    We ordered quite a few dishes here, all Jeju specialties -
    1. Jeju black pig (pork belly) BBQ - 30,000 KRW
    2. Abalone porridge - 15,000 KRW
    3. Abalone rice in hot iron bowl - 15,000 KRW
    4. Sea urchin and seaweed soup - 15,000 KRW

    The hearty and delicious lunch cost us about 75,000 KRW - very worth it as ingredients were fresh and tasty. The portions were also quite filling. We were very satisfied with this meal. We also saw some other Korean tourists eating here. They had a staff who was from China, so we could communicate clearly to him what we wanted to order.

    Favorite Dish: The black pig pork belly BBQ was to-die-for! Super good!

    The other dishes tasted good too!

    Jin Mi House: Great sea food - Korean Sashimi

    by Bob_Shan Updated Jun 27, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Restaurant is rated one of the best in Jeju.
    It looks average from both outsie and inside. The difference is you can find a lot pictures of the owner/chef with important people/visitors from all around the world.

    The chef is very famous because he has an unique way to prepare sashimi of Giant grouper, snapper, and other kind of fish.

    We enjoyed dinner, and a chat with the chef. In the end he took a world map ask each of us to sign our names on our respective countries in the map and took a picture with us. I guess our picture will be hanged in his restaurant soon. :)

    Favorite Dish: Giant grouper, abalone sashimi, soup, pan cake,... all good!

    The most well known fruit is the mandarin orange. It has been grown here as early as the era of the Three Kingdoms. Mandarin orange, were offered as presents to kings along with abalone as special products of Jeju.

    The Jeju orange is renowned across the nation because of its taste, which is tart and sweet with a spicy fragrance and freshness.The color of the orange is yellowish. The yellow oranges shining in the green trees create a beautiful work of art which even the goddess of Jeju envies. T

    JEJU FOOD

    by ancient_traveler Written Mar 28, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Foods from Jeju mainly made with saltwater fish, vegetables, and seaweed, and are usually seasoned with soybean paste. The number of dishes set on a table is small. The taste of the food is generally a bit salty, probably because foods are easily spoiled due to the warm temperature.

    Favorite Dish: Kalchi Kui - broiled hair-tail fish - long silver colored fish. Very tender taste.

    Hwae (raw fish, squid, lobster) - fresh thin slices of delicate fish. Even Koreans from the mainland value local fresh fish; once you are on Jeju you must taste it.

    Yangnyom kalbi - marinated pork or beef ribs grilled on charcoal. Tender meat slices are grilled right on the table on a pot grill using charcoal.

    We were hungry after a day at the beach. We were looking for some seafood with a relaxing ambiance. We found it at the Suites Hotel after taking a look at what they had set up on the veranda.

    Favorite Dish: The Shabu Shabu was the freshest I had ever tasted!

    Black Pork (heukdwaeji): This little piggy went wee wee wee

    by bpacker Updated Apr 29, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hubby and I were just wandering about in the little town in Jeju (Namjeju-gun) and looking for a place to eat when we stumbled into this little joint. We have this unwritten rule that if a joint was crammed with locals, the food must be good and cheap. We went in . Afterall, we did see a lot of happy locals inside, feasting away, sitting barefoot and cross-legged.

    Sometimes, a good phrase book and lots of animated gestures can get you a good meal. I can vouch for it since this happened to me in Jeju, Korea. Since I spoke pidgin Korean, it took both of these to get a delicious BBQ pork meal from a patient restaurateur. Other than bearing with my limited vocab, the restaurateur also taught us how to wrap a fragrant leaf together with condiments and BBQ pork before eating. Nice authentic experience that spoke volumes about the warmth of Koreans. And yes, the food was cheap, it must have cost us about US$12 for this fantastic meal and hospitality...

    Favorite Dish: Well, I guess it has to be the "brack wee wee" . Wondering what it is? I did too, for about a while to understand that it was none other than pork from a black-skinned piggy! I nodded with enthusiasm and got the 'best' cuts in the house - whole pices of fat laced into porky joints. Despite the fact that I was a health freak, I ate everything, black skin and all to show my gratitude. Best thing I ever tasted, the pork was chewy yet succulent..
