[Jeju Eateries] Jame Guksu of the Guksu Street

An important note on Jeju’s updated bus system and this blog post

From August 2017, Jeju Island implemented a new city and intercity bus system. It increased the number of buses in service, while simplifying the routes, fees and numbering system.

Consequently, the contents of this previously published blog post may have changed. We therefore would kindly request that you consult this page for new bus maps in English on VisitJeju.net,  and this page on our blog for a chart of the old and new bus route numbers.

If you read Korean, then the province’s official bus system website is a useful and up-to-date resource. We hope you’ll enjoy your travels on Jeju Island!

Of Jeju’s traditional dishes there is the gogi[3] guksu. It is the savory combination of pork and guksu. Today, I made my way to the famous Jame Guksu of the Guksu Street.

Around the Guksu Street are the Samseong Hyeol and Folklore & Natural History Museum that draw a steady stream of visitors to the Guksu Street.

Despite its rather small size of operation, this place is a particularly famous local eatery. During the lunch rush, there was a long line in front of the restaurant. Although there is quite a few other Guksu houses in the area, we decided to try this place.

It seems that waiting to be seated is not unusual, so there are chairs outside for waiting customers sit and rest.

Gogi guksus could be a tad bit heavy and greasy, but this house’s guksu was refreshing. Of course the meat was delicious as well.

If you love guksu, be sure to try this place. Of course, it’s located in the Guksu Street, so trying other places is also a good idea.
