We were lucky met with a Korean guy whom just out from office lead us to the Dongnae Halmae Pajeon Restaurant located nearby his office. We don’t even notice that we had reach the restaurant as the signboard was too small to recognized until the guy pointed several time at it. The korean tea was nice ☺
