Running Man HAHA’s Loco Quan 401 at Hongdae (런닝맨 하하 401홍대)

I have blogged about Running Man HAHA’s Mak chang restaurant (Pal Ja Mak Chang) back then in 2012. In 2014, they actually went through some remodelling and back as Loco Quan 401 with changed menu. And during my recent trip (March/April 2015) I visited his brand new restaurant with my friends and tried their speciality – Jeju Black Pork. I remembered how tasty and juicy it was during my 2011 and 2013 Jeju trips! So, I’m pretty excited to try their new menu! :) If you visited Pal Ja Mak Chang before, Loco Quan 401 is located at the same place. (He even opened 401 at the most famous tourist spot – Myeongdong too)

#the sauces for the meat was pretty awesome. I don’t visit much BBQ places, but this probably the only place that serve such yummy sauce :)
