The Best Ramen Shop in Seoul [멘야산다이메]

멘야산다이메 means Spenser's Favorite Food in Hongdae
2014/01/05 @ 홍대 [Hongdae]

This is my favorite place to eat ramen in Seoul. A big bowl of noodles, veggies, and pork is about 7,000won. It's very small, and you are usually seated right at the counter where they are cooking on the other side. The food and the atmosphere are amazing. It's pretty small and hard to find, so I'm including a map for you.
