Wolmi-do is famous for its raw fish restaurants which number around 50. These are located all along the water's edge in Wolmi-do facing the airport and the West Sea. I especially enjoyed the circular restaurant that hangs out over the water on the seawall at the northern end of Wolmi-do. At this restaurant I had a great, steaming pot of Haemultang -- or spicy seafood soup -- containing everything including shrimp, oysters, crabs, octopus, and other tasty items. Warning, this is a spicy dish!
This was one of the first restaurants I ever tried in Korea, and we had a terrible time ordering. They brought about five different people over to attempt to translate and none was really any better at English than the one before. Finally they pointed at something on the menu and we shook our heads yes, and waited. Our meal turned out to be a spectacular seafood feast!
When in Korea, Galbi is a must for any visitor. You choose a selection of meats which are brought to the table raw and you cook them in a small fire in the middle of the table. In Bupyeong there are several 'Donenu' galbi restaurants, they are a chain and seem to keep the standard the same, as well as the prices low. Here you will get a host of free side orders which are self service refillable. This is a great place to try the local stuff, make sure you order a 'Jiigae' with your Galbi, a spicy kimchi and pork soup.
Favorite Dish: Galbi, Jiigae
Hyatt Regency Incheon's stunning all-in-one dining venue features eight distinctive restaurants that include: Café, Cucina, Deli, Desserts, Grill, Noodles, Sushi, Yakitori.
The food menu is extensive and the ambience is posh. The staff is very friendly (at the same time professional) and very conversant in English. If you're coming to eat here alone, sitting by the counter (overlooking the chef's kitchen island) is a nice experience.
On a certain day of the week (enquire on this first) they have buffet settings..
Favorite Dish: I have a couple of favourites - Malaysian Mee Goreng, Tom Yum Noodles, the pasta dishes. The calamari starter is simply very delicious!
This was one of the best buffet breakfast's I have ever had. They had a wide variety of breakfast food on offer, both western and traditional Korean. You can request what ever you want (within reason) and the chef's will cook it right there in front of you.
I'm not sure what the name of this place is, but the owners were friendly and helpful, and the food was great and not overly expensive.
I gave this place a try and almost bit off more than I could chew trying to eat this.
15000 won for a large plate of chicken, and beers were cheap at 3000 won a pop.
