New Bombay

New Bombay

Located in Bukbu-dong and on the same street as Yangan’s Asia marts (which are useful shops to know), New Bombay is, as far as I know, the only Indian restaurant in Yangsan.

They serves a good selection of curries, meat and breads along with a selection of bottled beers and there’s a pool table in the back room.

It’s maybe a little pricey but then Indian food in Korea always tends to be, plus there isn’t much in the way of competition.

I should also note that, this place could do with doing some interior decorating, but that’s just my opinion.

Directions: This restaurant is located in Bukbu-dong, which is a 10-15 minute walk from E-mart in Shindoshi. With the stadium behind you, walk straight down Samil-ro. Walk straight until you see Skin Food and CNA on your right. You want to take the street on your left (Bugan nam 2-gil). Walk straight, you will see New Bombay on your left-hand side.

하 똥 (Ha DDong)

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This bar’s name translates (according to Google) as “And shit”, though I think “And poo” has a nicer ring to it. It’s located close to 남부 시장 (Nambu Market) and Chicken Syndrome.

I like 하 똥 mainly as it’s a small independent bar with character (unlike many of the franchise bars you will find here in Korea).

Here they serve various imported bottled beers as well as Korean beer and soju. All the drinks are self-service, which means you help yourself and count up the bottles when you leave.

Food is optional, there is a Korean menu and the owner cooks all the food himself.

Walk straight until you see Skin Food and CNA on your right. You want to take the street on your left (Bugan nam 2-gil). Walk straight, you will pass New Bombay on your left. Turn right at the 711 and walk straight (you will pass the I motel on your left). 하 똥 is on the left hand side, opposite Chicken Syndrome, number 12 Bugan nam 4-gil.

The owner, Mr Lee, is a coffeephile who knows his stuff and he also sells coffee paraphanalia (coffee makers, grinders etc).

I buy my coffee beans from there (he usually has a selection) and haven’t been disappointed yet.

Plus the cakes are great.

Or, walk down the street to the left of Dunkin Donuts (Hwahap 11-gil), So So Bom is on the left hand side, opposite a Chinese restaurant.

무 라 (Mu Ra)

20151011_153624This is one of my favorite places to eat in Yangsan. They serve Japanese style noodles (ramen, pork, beansprouts, spring onions in a broth) as well as Japanese style curry, some sea food dishes and 돈까스 (Korean style pork cutlet).

For me, it’s all about the noodles which cost around 6000-7000 per bowl. I highly recommend trying the 미 소 라 멘 (Miso Ramen) or the 탄 탄 라 멘 (Tan Tan Ramen), the latter being a little spicy but not not too much.

Mu Ra’s opening hours are apparantly 11.30AM to 02.00AM. Though I feel it’s worth mentioning that they have been closed on a couple of occasions when I’ve tried to visit.

Directions (from Emart), cross the road towards Krispy Kremes and walk right. Take the second street on your left (the pedestrianised street), Mu Ra will be a few doors down on your left.
