Experience Traditional Local Cuisine at 숲속안골길 (Soopsok Angolgil)

Located in the beautiful countryside of Yeongcheon, 숲속안골길 (Soopsok Angolgil) is a hidden gem that offers a unique dining experience for those seeking authentic Korean cuisine. As a foreigner visiting this charming restaurant, I was immediately drawn to its rustic atmosphere and warm hospitality.

The owner, 이영애 (Lee Young-ae), who hails from Yeongcheon, decided to return to her hometown after running a weekend farm for many years. Being raised in a traditional Korean household, she has developed a deep passion for cooking and wanted to showcase the local specialties of Yeongcheon.

At 숲속안골길, the menu is centered around the use of locally sourced ingredients. From the moment I stepped inside, I could smell the tantalizing aroma of freshly prepared dishes made with Yeongcheon’s renowned produce, such as 뿡잎 (ddeung-ip, Korean garlic chives) and 한우 (hanu, Korean beef).

The range of dishes offered at the restaurant is impressive. I had the pleasure of trying 돔베기 (dombe-gi, soy sauce braised pork belly) and it was a true culinary delight. The meat was tender and flavorful, perfectly complimented by the accompanying side dishes. As I savored each bite, I could taste the love and care that went into preparing the meal.

One of the highlights of 숲속안골길 is the dedication to preserving and continuing the tradition of 향토음식 (hyangto-eumsik, local cuisine). The owner, 이영애 (Lee Young-ae), is passionate about keeping the heritage alive and ensuring that future generations can appreciate the unique flavors of Yeongcheon. Her commitment to using locally sourced ingredients truly shines through in every dish.
