Komseomnaru Restaurant: Gourmet Delights of Soy Crab and Crab Stew – The Perfect Rice Pairings!

Welcome to Gomseomnaru (곰섬나루)

Amidst the rustic beauty of Taean County in Chungcheongnam Province, situated at Anmyeon-daero 1610-27 (formerly, Shinon-ri 505), you will find a charming local treasure- Gomseomnaru restaurant. Gomseomnaru, meaning bear island wharf, gets its name from the unique shape of the island nearby that resembles a sleeping bear. The area surrounding our restaurant was once the only wharf from where locals could venture onto this island, enveloping the region with a warm and cozy community spirit.

Savoring the Flavors of the Sea

The highlight of our menu is the authentic and flavorful ‘Ganjang Gejang’ and ‘GeGukji’. Ganjang Gejang is a dish made by marinating fresh crabs in a specially brewed soy sauce mixed with sea staghorn, reflecting the ocean’s essence in every bite. GeGukji, on the other hand, features cabbage simmered in a soup made with aged crab soy sauce, offering a unique taste that lingers on your palate. The menu varies, but these two dishes are constant, promising a gastronomic delight with every visit.
