Planning a trip to Jeju Island and not sure what food to put in your belly or which restaurants to check out? Well, nor was I until I created this detailed list of some of the places we visited in Jeju back in April. Wait, that makes no sense. Oh well, here’s some amazing food we ate in Jeju and I thought my readers would enjoy seeing it!
Dodu Fresh Burgers – 도두후레쉬
Dodu Fresh is located conveniently near Jeju airport. It is the perfect lunch spot if you are waiting for your hotel in Jeju City to open up for a 3pm check-in. We enjoyed our burgers a 5-minute drive away by the water and had to compete with the wind while eating. I would definitely recommend the cheesy fries. I chose to eat the Shrimp burger and it was GOOD! I could honestly go for one right now.
Store Hours: Opens Daily from 9:30 am to 7:00 pm (Closed on Tuesdays)
Address: Jeju-do, Jeju-si, 특별자치도, Doduil-dong, Dogong-ro, 34 KR
Noraba Seafood Ramyeon – 노라바
We found out about Noraba Seafood Ramyeon by looking at a restaurant brochure from our hotel. My husband knew immediately that it was his destiny to drive there and eat ramyeon. I’m glad we did because it was such a great experience.
We ordered two of the classic Noraba Seafood Ramyeon dishes (mild) and a Lunch box set or ‘Doshirak’ with rice and other goodies. My husband regretting getting the mild version because there was no spice at all. I enjoyed it but also would have liked a bit more bang.. in my mouth?
Pro Tip: We went to Noraba on a Monday and had to wait at least 45 minutes to eat. It is a very efficient system with sign ups and number calls etc. I would suggest you prepare for a waiting time. Outdoor and indoor seating is available!
Store Hours: Opens every day from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm
Address: 100 Gueom-gil, Aewol-eup, Jeju-si, Jeju-do
Yewonine Galchi Jorim 예원이네 은갈치조림
Galchi Jorim is a staple Jeju Island food specialty and is a ‘Hairtail fish Soup’. It is sometimes a sweet dish full of delicious fish, tofu and plenty of vegetables. For me, this place was a little too spicy, but having the Nurungji (scorched rice) dish really helped!
For more information, this person did a much better job of explaining the restaurant in great detail.
Store Hours: Opens every day from 10:30 am to 8:00 pm
Address: Jeju-do, Seogwipo-si, 특별자치도, Andeok-myeon, Gamsan-ri, 359-1 KR
Dombedon – Jeju Ogyeopsal BBQ – 돔베돈
One thing you should also try in Jeju is an ogyeopsal BBQ! Unlike Korea’s regular, boring meat, samgyeopsal, this pork has 5 layers of meats and fats instead of 3! I’m not saying you need to go to this specific restaurant, but if you head to this general area in Jeju City, you are bound to find a great restaurant to eat Ogyeopsal. This was so delicious… but my memory of the food was somewhat clouded by the soju we drank with it.
Hours: Opens daily from 11:00 am to 12:00 am
Address: 25 Gwandeong-ro 15(sibo)-gil, Geonip-dong, Jeju-si, Jeju-do
