Directions to HwangBo’s Shimsontang Restaurant in Hongdae

On February 5, 2011, Hwangbo officially entered the restaurant business when she became the co-owner of the Shimsontong branch in Hongdae in the Mapo-gu district in Seoul. They specialize in a famous Korean favorite “Bu Dae Jigae” but they of course have other Korean dishes.

Here is the direction on how to get to Shimsontang Hongdae.

*Take Line 2 to Hongik Univ. Station (239) then Exit 9.
*Turn immediately left on the road after Exit 9, Paris Baguette on the right.
*Walk up the road until the 1st block that ends with Dunkin Donut at the corner, turn right on the road between Dunkin Donut & Coffee Bean.

*Walk down the whole stretch of the road. There is a crossroad, cross the road directly to continue walking along the stretch of the road. Cross at the lights at Richemont Bakery at the end block to U+Avenue. Between U+Avenue & Mister Donut, continue along the road.
*Walk pass the 1st block of Mister Donut. Turn left after between the 1st block between a Bluefin tuna restaurant and walk up along the road.

*At the end of the block, you see an “Orange” signage shop, turn right down the road. Shimsontang is next to the “Orange” signage shop.

That is their famous ‘Bu Dae Jigae” dish. The interior design is sleek and modern. There are also many cute and adorable trinkets with some given by fans. Yeah, of course One Piece manga mini-figures. Kim Hyun Joong’s fave manga. Joongbo in the house!!!♥♥♥
