Delicious Winter Specials: Sujeongso Banquet Restaurant

Introduction to 수정소반 restaurant

During my recent visit to 경주시 (Gyeongju City) in 경상북도 (Gyeongsangbuk-do) province, I had the pleasure of discovering a hidden gem called 수정소반 (Sujeong Soban). This charming restaurant, run by 이영욱 대표 (Mr. Lee Young-wook), offers a unique dining experience that showcases traditional Korean cuisine with a focus on 시래기 (siraegi), a nutritious ingredient often used during the winter season.

At 수정소반, you can indulge in a variety of dishes that feature 시래기, such as the delightful 시래기밥 (siraegi rice) and 청국장 (cheonggukjang), a fermented soybean paste stew. These dishes not only provide a delicious taste but also offer a wealth of nutrients, making them particularly popular during the winter months when it’s essential to boost your vitamin intake.

Mr. Lee Young-wook, the owner and chef of 수정소반, has a deep passion for preserving and promoting traditional Korean cuisine. His expertise in incorporating 시래기 into various dishes has earned him recognition, including winning the grand prize at the 신라전래·경주 전통음식 경연대회 (Silla Traditional Food Competition) in 경주시.

One of the things that struck me about 수정소반 is its warm and welcoming atmosphere. The restaurant is located at 경북 경주시 포석로 633-14, which is easily accessible for both local residents and tourists. The opening hours are 상시운영 (open all year round), from 11:00 AM to 8:00 PM, except for Tuesdays when it is closed.
