HELLO KOREA 2022/2023: Dongmyojib 동묘집 Spicy Webfoot Octopus

[Travel in December 2022 – January 2023]

The webfoot octopus is one of my absolute favorite ingredients in Korea! Every trip, without fail, I make sure to indulge in them. Their flavor is simply divine; they’re incredibly delicious! Even my go-to snack tends to be octopus-related, believe it or not!

I’m genuinely thrilled to recommend this place, as the food here is exceptional. If you’re a fan of pajeon, this spot is a must-visit. Many years ago, I tried the 누룩나무 Pajeon, and it instantly became my favorite, primarily because of my love for leeks and spring onions. However, I understand that not everyone shares my enthusiasm for these ingredients. If that’s the case, this place might be just perfect for you!

Look at this! Don’t you wish to try? 🙂

I had a great time savoring the webfoot octopus, so it’s definitely a must-try on my next visit. It might be a tad spicy for those who aren’t accustomed to spice, but personally, it posed no challenge for me. I’m all for embracing spiciness to the fullest. Plus, this dish also incorporates pork, which, I must admit, probably constitutes a significant portion of my pork consumption for the year! Haha.

I actually arrived around 5:30 pm since the store is quite tiny, and upon arrival, I found myself waiting for a little while. Haha!
