Spicy Seafood Ramen in Rustic SurroundingsNolman


Nolman is a tiny restaurant tucked away in a refurbished old Jeju house by the sea. It has a single item on the menu: seafood ramen stuffed to the brim with crab, shrimp, and mussels. The soup is spicy and salty, while the fresh seafood lends the broth an extra richness. The restaurant’s location in an old stone house means there is limited seating and visitors are advised to share their tables with other customers. As the seating is in a covered area outside, the restaurant may close at short notice due to heavy wind or rain so be sure to check before heading out. If you want a unique experience and some delicious seafood by the sea, then Nolman is a great option.

Trendy Hamburgers Straight from SeoulDowntowner


Downtowner is the second location of a hugely popular Seoul-based restaurant that sells fast-casual-style hamburgers. The venue is perhaps most well-known for its avocado burger, which sees sliced avocado spread out alongside tomato and bacon. The effect is a colorful (and delicious) sandwich. You can also choose burgers with classic fillings like cheese, bacon, and egg. The menu has a selection of fries topped with garlic butter, guacamole, or bacon cheese. The location is in a fun spot called Illwol Sunset Beach—a palm tree-filled area shared with several other restaurants, cafés, and bars. Downtowner’s popularity means there can be queues, so be prepared to wait if you plan to eat at a busy time.
