Barley Feast at Bori Gakshi: Consistent Yet Uniquely Entertaining

Introduction to Bori Gaksi (보리각시)

Deep in the heart of Gyeongsangbuk-do, Gumi City is a unique restaurant known as Bori Gaksi (보리각시). This quaint, rustic establishment is not your typical dining experience. Instead, it is run by local farmers who pride themselves on promoting their locally-grown produce and traditional cooking methods. This charming haven provides an authentic taste of Korea that is both familiar and excitingly different.


The Bori Gaksi restaurant is located at 38-27, An-gok 2-gil, Mu-eul-myeon, Gumi-si, Gyeongsangbuk-do (경북 구미시 무을면 안곡2길 38-27).

Operation Hours

The restaurant operates based on a reservation system, where you need to make a reservation at least a day in advance. Bori Gaksi opens twice a day for lunch from 12:00 to 15:00 and dinner from 17:00 to 20:00. However, please note that the restaurant is closed every Monday.

A Unique Dining Experience

The driving force behind Bori Gaksi is Hwang Soon-ok, who is a member of the Gumi City Our Food Research Association. Hwang Soon-ok and the villagers have opened the doors of Bori Gaksi as a result of their ongoing research and exploration into various ways of utilizing barley. With unending research and challenge, Hwang Soon-ok presents a refined Han-sang (traditional Korean table setting) made from sticky barley and wild greens collected from mountains and fields during spring.
