On Day 20 of our food trip to South Korea, we spent the day in Jeonju. After walking around the Hanok village a little more, we ate lunch, and then had an outstanding dinner at a restaurant called Marubul Restaurant (마루벌돌구이), that serves samgyeopsal (pork belly bbq) on a hot stone and lights it on fire!

00:25 Holly’s Coffee – 4,100 Won ($3.46) – Ying and I started off the day with a cup of coffee at the Korean coffee chain called Holly’s Coffee. Pretty good place and really nice place to sit.

00:52 Dawoorang Dumpling – 6,000 Won ($5.06) for plate – “Containing all of the happiness and attention dumplings!” – I really wanted to try the dumplings at Dawoorang Dumpling within the hanok village of Joenju, so we walked over there and had some mandoo dumplings. They indeed were pretty delicious.

2:52 Veteran (베테랑분식) Restaurant, Price – 6,000 Won ($5.06) per bowl – For lunch we ate at a Korean noodle restaurant in the Hanok village known as Veteran (베테랑분식) Restaurant. I thought the food was average, nothing very good, but it is a very well known popular restaurant and a budget place to eat when you’re exploring the Hanok village in Jeonju.

7:47 Jeonju Zoo – 1,300 Won ($1.10) – In order to just spend a little bit of time prior to eating dinner we walked around the Jeonju Zoo, which is more like a big park. It’s a nice place to take a walk.

9:31 Flaming pork belly bbq at Marubul Restaurant (마루벌돌구이) – One of the most beloved Korean foods is samgyeopsal, or pork belly which is often barbecued. At Marubul Restaurant (마루벌돌구이) in Jeonju they take things to the next level and grill your samgyeopsal on a hot stone in front of you. When the meat has been cooked they douse on some alcohol and light it on fire so it goes up in a flaming bbq of fire. The result is wonderful, crispy and fatty pieces of pork belly, all wrapped up with lettuce wraps. Total price for 4 – 66,000 Won ($55.63).

It was a fantastic day, the pork belly bbq was the highlight!

  1. The Zoo was so bad Mark, I know you have nothing to do with the living conditions but those animals suffer in the cages. Can you imagine living a 6×6 box you entire life as people stared at you day after day. I did enjoy the food part of the video. , tks for sharing

  2. This amazing guy, Wiens, eats like a pig and revels in things porcine, but strangely, is not fat like a….well, pig!

  3. Awww!!! I'm down to the last of your 2 year old, South Korea vlog and I enjoyed it so much! Thank God I came across your channel… I have learned a lot about the food and culture and this will definitely help me and my husband in the future because it's our dream to go there. We're from the Philippines ??, and I'm glad you enjoyed the Philippines as well. I hope next time you can come here in Bicol, my hometown, who loves chillies as well. More power Mark and God bless you, Ying and Micah.?

  4. In case of having food <sarm: 쌈> , correct way of having it is eating whole of it < one bite : not biting a part of it> . It is believed to be a sort of correct table manner in Korea and to be way of enjoying the food in perfection . If you bite a portion of 쌈 , there are fears that you would miss combined flavor of all ingredient in it. I've seen a lot of times people from foreign countries used to it.

  5. the red paste noodle dish is called jjol myun and it's a summer dish that people usually crave when it's hot in summer

  6. I love any kind of Oriental food especially with fresh vegetables yummy all day any day! Tex Mex food is next cause I all a Tex Mex yum. I think I'm hungry lol

  7. Dumplings were to kill for, the noodle dish looked fantastic; Mark where do you put it all? the ice cream cone looked great! the round cooking table was good..because of all the food cooking on it.
