๐ŸฝThe Best Jeju Black Pork recommendation: ์ˆ™์„ฑ๋„ Suksungdo (Hamdeok Branch)

๐Ÿ“ ์ œ์ฃผ ์ œ์ฃผ์‹œ ์กฐ์ฒœ์ ํ•จ๋•๋กœ 40 2์ธต 201ํ˜ธ

Jeju Island is very famous for its black pork. 'Suksungsung' specializes in aged pork belly and other specialty cuts of Jeju black pork. '๋ผˆ๋“ฑ์‹ฌ' and '๋ผˆ๋ชฉ์‚ด' are limited to 80 servings per day and close early. 


If you want to try specialty cuts of meat, we recommend '๋ผˆ๋“ฑ์‹ฌ'! (Samgyeopsal is a must) There are several branches of 'Suksungsung', so we recommend visiting at a convenient location depending on your itinerary in Jeju.

๐ŸฝA meat noodle soup restaurant that has been visited more than once, ์‚ผ๋Œ€๊ตญ์ˆ˜ Samdaeguksu Main Branch

๐Ÿ“ ์ œ์ฃผ ์ œ์ฃผ์‹œ ์‚ผ์„ฑ๋กœ 41

There are many meat noodle restaurants in Jeju Island, but I think the original is Samdaeguksu! I personally recommend trying the pork soup(๋ผ์ง€๊ตญ๋ฐฅ), which is made with meat noodle broth. Also I'm a fan of light flavors rather than heavy flavors, and the anchovy noodle soup(๋ฉธ์น˜๊ตญ์ˆ˜) was very refreshing.

๐Ÿฝ If you want to eat fresh and deeply flavored curry made with ingredients from Jeju! 'Tom Tom Curry'

๐Ÿ“ ์ œ์ฃผ ์ œ์ฃผ์‹œ ๊ตฌ์ขŒ์ ํ•ด๋งž์ดํ•ด์•ˆ๋กœ 1112

(Spinach Curry)

This cozy Jeju restaurant has an atmosphere reminiscent of a home in Jeju. We recommend the Mushroom Curry with Jeju Shiitake Mushrooms(ํ‘œ๊ณ  ๋ฒ„์„ฏ ์นด๋ ˆ) and the Spinach Curry(์‹œ๊ธˆ์น˜ ์นด๋ ˆ), which is a light curry made with grated spinach.

(Shiitake Mushroom Curry)

You might be thinking, "Why go all the way to Jeju for curry...?" but we recommend you give it a try! They also have a small menu for kids, which is great!

๐Ÿฝ 'Cafe Oreum JEJU' - Visuals and flavors at once!

๐Ÿ“ ์ œ์ฃผ ์„œ๊ท€ํฌ์‹œ ์„ฑ์‚ฐ์ ์‚ผ๋‹ฌ๋กœ 128

The shrimp pasta and octopus pasta are eye-catching. There are many restaurants in Jeju that have a small interior, but this one is spacious and comfortable. I don't have a picture of the black pork katsu, but I recommend it.

๐Ÿฝ Enjoy fresh seafood dishes at ‘Jangseungpo Restaurant’

๐Ÿ“ ์ œ์ฃผ ์„œ๊ท€ํฌ์‹œ ์„ฑ์‚ฐ์ ๋™๋ฅ˜์•”๋กœ 32

Jeju Island is also famous for its fresh seafood, and we recommend trying a dish called Haemul Ttukbaegi(ํ•ด๋ฌผ๋š๋ฐฐ๊ธฐ), which is a bowl of various seafood such as prawns and clams. It's a great meal with a variety of free side dishes, rice, and Haemul Ttukbaegi(ํ•ด๋ฌผ๋š๋ฐฐ๊ธฐ). It's also a favorite among Koreans, so if you go when it's crowded, you may have to wait. If you're not alone, you should definitely try the Braised Mackerel with Aged Kimchi(๊ณ ๋“ฑ์–ด ๋ฌต์€์ง€ ์กฐ๋ฆผ) in addition to the Haemul Ttukbaegi!

๐Ÿฝ ‘Seongsan Umung raw fish restaurant’, a place where you can taste prawns and mackerel 

๐Ÿ“ ์ œ์ฃผ ์„œ๊ท€ํฌ์‹œ ์„ฑ์‚ฐ์ ์ผ์ถœ๋กœ 29

If you're staying in Seogwipo or planning to visit Seongsan Ilchulbong, this is the place to go. This restaurant serves Jeju's famous raw mackerel and raw prawns. It's best served with seaweed! Tip: Everything is available to go, so the NAMANE staff took some home and ate it at the hotel. If you're visiting with a group and there's no room at the restaurant, we recommend taking it to go!.

๐Ÿฝ 'Udo Peanut Ice Cream' near Seongsan Ilchulbong

๐Ÿ“ ์ œ์ฃผ ๊ณณ๊ณณ์— ์œ„์น˜!

There is an island called 'Udo' located to the east of Jeju Island. It's a beautiful island just a short ship ride from Jeju Island. The island's specialty is "Udo peanuts," and Jeju offers a variety of specialty products that utilize its unique resources, such as Udo peanut waffles, Udo peanut sandwiches, and Udo peanut ice cream. The ice cream made with Udo peanuts, which have a richer flavor than regular peanuts, is a must-try! (You can easily find it in Jeju's cafes, dessert shops, and street food vendors).

3. Jeju Island Cafe Recommendations

๐Ÿฝ'Dalchaekbbang’, a cafe where you can fully enjoy the tranquility of Jeju Island

๐Ÿ“ ์ œ์ฃผ ์ œ์ฃผ์‹œ ๊ตฌ์ขŒ์ ๋Œ€์ˆ˜๊ธธ 10-12

This cafe has an unusual interior with a large window. Jeju is famous for its black pork, octopus, shrimp, and other seafood, but carrots are one of its specialties, and we recommend trying the carrot juice and carrot cake here. 

The nearby areas are quiet, so you can fully experience the tranquility of Jeju Island. Why not take a break from the hustle and bustle of tourist spots and stop by for a tea break?

๐ŸฝCoffee with a nice ocean view at ‘Cafe Ao-oh’

๐Ÿ“ ์ œ์ฃผ ์„œ๊ท€ํฌ์‹œ ์„ฑ์‚ฐ์ ํ™˜ํ•ด์žฅ์„ฑ๋กœ 75 

This cafe is located right in front of the sea, so it's best to visit on a sunny day! The entire building is covered in windows, so you can enjoy a tea break with a panoramic view. 

For drinks, we recommend the Latte "์˜ฌ๋””์ œ์ฃผ," which is made with Hallabong Cheong-it’s like syrup made with Hallabong, a specialty of Jeju Island. There are also a variety of desserts to choose from, including the ‘cronut’, which is a combination of croissant, waffle, and donut. Recommended!

๐ŸฝNew  Cafe hopping! ‘Starbucks The Jeju Songdang Park Branch’

๐Ÿ“ ์ œ์ฃผ ์ œ์ฃผ์‹œ ๊ตฌ์ขŒ์ ๋น„์ž๋ฆผ๋กœ 1197

This is a new cafe that just opened. You can find Starbucks everywhere, but this one is a little special. The interior and exterior of the cafe is made of Jeju Island's 'basalt', and there are various landscaping interiors and observation decks outside. It's a great place to take a stroll after your coffee!

๐ŸฝPopular in both Seoul and Jeju! 'London Bagel Museum Jeju'

๐Ÿ“ ์ œ์ฃผ ์ œ์ฃผ์‹œ ๊ตฌ์ขŒ์ ๋™๋ณต๋กœ 85 ์ œ2๋™ 1์ธต

The London Bagel Museum has already become a popular spot in Seoul. The Jeju branch is equally popular. There are many delicious bagels to choose from, we recommend trying the Brick Lane Sandwich, Green Onion Pretzel Bagel, and Butter Salt Pretzel Bagel.

๐ŸฝIf you want a spacious and comfortable Jeju cafe, try 'Fritz Jeju Seongsan Branch'

๐Ÿ“ ์ œ์ฃผ ์„œ๊ท€ํฌ์‹œ ์„ฑ์‚ฐ์ ์ผ์ถœ๋กœ 222

If you want to enjoy coffee and dessert with a panoramic view of Seongsan Ilchulbong, this is the place! We recommend 'Fritz Jeju Seongsan Branch'. In fact, if it's crowded, it can be hard to get a seat at the best spot overlooking Seongsan Ilchulbong. It's recommended to stop by as soon as it opens! Since Fritz specializes in coffee, you can expect an above-average coffee taste. They have a wide variety of beans, so you can choose your favorite flavor. The staff tried the donuts and honey toast!

๐Ÿฝ'Boryong Bakery'

๐Ÿ“ ์ œ์ฃผ ์„œ๊ท€ํฌ์‹œ ์„ฑ์‚ฐ์ ๊ณ ์„ฑ์˜ค์กฐ๋กœ 48-1

If you want to go on a bakery tour of Jeju Island, this is a must-visit place! It's a friendly neighborhood bakery that doesn't feel like a franchise, and you can try and buy different types of bread. If you're not sure about Korean-style breads, you can try and buy them yourself! We recommend Hallabong Jambongbore, which is a specialty of Jeju Island that you can only taste here. The prices are reasonable, so it's easy to buy a lot of bread : )
