Food: 미소家 Spicy Seafood Noodle House - JJAMBBONG (Paju, Korea)
Before the year ends, I just want to remember my Korea Trip back in January this year. Still can't believe that I got to go to Korea. I remember my parents rushing to get my sister and I to Korea. It was a last minute plan as it was a miracle trip. In the end my sis and I went to Korea to experience GVP CAMP 2015 (More info here). After the camp we extended our trip and got to explore Korea. Jo (our tour guide/leader/korean mom) brought us here after we went "snow sledding". FYI this is located near North Korea, Paju. If any of you do pass by this area, I will highly recommend you trying out the spicy seafood noodles. The dish is HUGE! We ordered 2 bowls as there was 8 of us. Even with 8 of us, it was too much. I think a bowl can roughly feed 5 people.

Everyone meet Jo. She is camera shy :)

When entering the restaurant, it was a little awkward as most of the people in Paju are locals and there is rarely a foreigner. I guess we all dressed differently and the moment we stepped in, everyone in the restaurant stared at us. lol. It's quite busy during the lunch time. I only took pictures of the restaurant after our meal because I was too shy since everyone was already staring.


We didn't wait long for our meal. TBH I didn't know what we were getting as everything is in Korean and Jo ordered for us. The moment it arrived my sister and I couldn't speak. It was the first time I saw so much seafood in the bowl and there was octopus in it too! In the bowl was crabs, clams, mussels, octopus and champon noodles. I also didn't know there was noodles in the bowl until Jo told us. We had thongs and scissors because the bowl is massive and using chopsticks alone is too much work.

Not sure why my face looked like that. I remember it was a very cold day. Maybe -3C

After stuffing our faces. I couldn't move. It was so good I tell you. I remember wanting to return to the restaurant again before we fly off but we didn't have time. If can I remember correctly, it wasn't that spicy. My spiciness tolerance is super low, so if I can take it, I bet it's alright. It was a very savory dish, you can taste fish from the soup. All seafood lovers would be ecstatic for this dish.


It took me a while to find information of this restaurant. Most of the blogs that reviewed this store are written in Korean. If you were to be in Paju without any Korean knowledge, you will be lost. Most of the English speaking Koreans are in Seoul or if you are luck church goers. So be prepare if you are thinking of coming to the suburb. I bet there are other stores that serve this dish. Make sure to try it when you are in Korea! It's a must!

The 8th person is taking the picture. Am really blessed to have met Ronnie and his family.

Can you believe that there is only 4 more days until 2016? Any plans for the New Year? I will be MIA for a while, so just want to warn you guys in advance. Have a great new year everyone!
