HAHA’s Pal Ja Mak Chang (팔자막창)

[April 2015 NOTE: HAHA’s Pal Ja Mak Chang has already closed. At the very same location, HAHA’s opened his very own brand BBQ restaurant- 401. I have visited it finally during my recent trip (2015 March/April) – Read it here: Running Man’s HAHA Loco Quan 401 at Hongdae]

(credit: haha’s) Running Man have been a great hits in Korea as well as Asia. Even my aunty is watching Running Man, and loving Kim Jong Kok! And, when there’s news about Running Man’s HAHA & Leessang’s Gary also have franchise Makchang’s BBQ restaurant… everyone is delighted to visit. And, heard that they adopt the concept of Running Man in their restaurant. I think there’s many ways to reach HAHA’s restaurant, but my way get to see Hongdae more. If you wished to walk along Hongdae, shop and see a little more, come with me, follow me :) Subway: HongDae Station Exit 9 (Green Line)  It will be really good if you have Google Map or any GPRS device with you, because it will not be easy to find, though… you can bring me along with you :P After exit, you get to see some street stall selling very lovely clothes for your doggie, and also, cheap and pretty hair clips/socks. Not forgetting, street food. I remember I have taken photos of it, but apparently, I can’t find :/

    Can I ask you if that is the only page on the menu? As I am visiting Seoul and Wanted to visit Haha’s Restaurant but unfortunately those stuff on the menu is not what we would eat.

      Hi Jaden!

      Yes, that’s the only page on the menu. Just like their restaurant name, they mainly sell Makchang (Pig Intestine). Likewise to you, I don’t eat makchang as well, hence I ordered a Seafood Soup (which is really spicy and good) and a kimchi fried rice to share with my friend :)

      Hope this helps!

      Oh dear, sorry for late reply.
      I was a little busy lately.

      Btw, that kimchi rice is order by my friend and I realise it wasn’t on the menu.
      By right it should be a lunchbox.. actual name for korean lunchbox is call – doshirak. :)

    They have since ended the franchise…now it’s a normal BBQ restaurant. Intestine is no longer on the menu.

    you have to put into consideration once you come into this restaurant, minimum order is kw 15,000/person/portion (restaurant rules)), so prepare for your wallet first

      Hi Jean!

      Thanks for the feedback :)
      Actually, I been there a few times in different months of the years, and every time it seems to have changes to the orders. The first time I went, I can order anything. The next time I went, I need to have minimum order. The last time I went… I need to order the same portion x2. But thanks for the notification. The time when I blogged about this it was my first visit :) Since its already changed the franchise… I guess this menu is no longer valid T.T

        Hi Hi,

        I’m not sure if his branch is closed. You can give a try at Gary new restaurant at Garosu-gil :) Its call Pokka Centre :) Alliterative, you can visit HAHA new restaurant 401 at hongdae, which I actually just blogged about it :)
