guksu myeongga

I was starting to lose hope about finding a nice hanok to hold our wedding since the other option, dugohan was completely booked. But my foodie partner found one more called The Hanok Smith Likes. It looked charming and more private than the previous hanok so we headed out to see the place that night. I instantly liked it although the food was Italian, not Korean. The manager wasn’t there that day so we took some photos and decided to grab dinner in the area.

For our wedding meal, we were hoping to have a simple meal. In the old days, Korean weddings would only have one dish but find a place that made it the best. It might be difficult since most venues  provide catering but we hope at least guksu can be added to the menu. So while we were roaming samcheongdong, we found a guksu restaurant right nearby. The broth was flavorful and soothing. The jeon we ordered had really spicy peppers though! I was already full on french fries before we met for dinner so I couldn’t enjoy this as much as I hoped.

The following Sunday, we returned to The Hanok Smith Likes to speak with the manager.  Overall the details sounded good but one minus point was the set maximum. Because the space is small, they can only serve and prepare for a set amount of guests. There was no flexibility which my foodie partner thought could be a potential issue. Especially since the maximum was 65 or 68. Although I really liked it, we had to take it out as an option.

edit: We have found a place! Unfortunately, not a hanok but top of our list for a non-hanok place and recommended by wedit. More details later!


いい韓家が見つかることを諦めてた頃、彼氏がもう一つ韓家レストランを見つけました。名前はスミスが好きな韓家。前見に行った所よりプレーベートでチャーミングっぽかった。韓国料理ではなくイタリアンだったが、気に入りました。早速、下見に行ったが、マーネージャがいなかったので、写真だけを撮って、近くで夜ご飯を探しに行きました。

結婚式の食事はシンプルにしようと思っています。韓国では昔、一品だけを出したが、一番美味しく作るレストランから頼みました。ほとんどの開催地はケータリングがもうついているので、別の場所から頼むのは難しいが、국수(クッス)だけでもメニューに足せたらいいなと。三清洞をうろうろしていたら、すぐ近くにクッスのレストランがあった。出汁がきいててとても美味しかった。チヂミも。でも唐辛子がすごく辛かった!待ち合わせする前に友達とポテトフライを食べたので、お腹がいっぱいで、味わえなかった。

その次の日曜、レストランに戻り、マネージャーと相談。全体的に良かったが、マイナスポイントが一つありました。それは人数の制限。場所が小さいので、設定の人数(68人)まで食事の準備ができません。彼氏と人数の適応性がないことは問題になるかと思い、残念だが、選択として諦めました。

※式場見つかりました!韓家ではないがウェディングプランナーがオススメしてくれた場所です。また後ほど詳しく書きます。
