Mini Hanjeongsik @ Insadong Chon

I guess most of you all will be like me wondering..what is hanjeongsik?! I have no idea what is it initially till I'm back home here and decided to blog about this restaurant...only I found out that I had actually feast like nobility in a very beautiful setting restaurant :-)

According to Korea Foods website:
Hanjeongsik is a full-course Korean meal with an array of savory side dishes. The most lavish of hanjeongsik traditional originated with the banquets served in the royal palaces or the homes of aristocrats.  In short, Hanjeongsik is the complete meal (Jeongsik) of Korea (Han).

When we reached there, we had to walk our way to Insadong Chon restaurant through a small lane way. The lane is lined with traditional Korean architecture.
Hmm..does this lane reminds you of walking alone in the horror movies? :-P
Insadong Chon is on the right - the one with big lantern light

I'm not sure what is stated in the Insadong Chon menu..but it seems the price varies starting from KRW 15,000 (~MYR 42) to KRW 60,000 (~MYR 170).

After the meal, we hang outside the restaurant to snap a few photos.

How to get here?
Insadong Sam Gil, Seoul, Korea
Phone: 02 720 4888 | mobile: 011 9875 4349

If you come to Insadong by subway, find "Exit Number 3 of Jong-gak Station" or "Exit Number 6 of Ahn-guk Station." "Chon" is on the street named "Insadong Sam Gil." 

Personally I recommend you all to try this place out to enjoy the ambiance and settings.
