100 cm, 4 toppings, 1 amazing Jeju pizza

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!

Couldn’t fit the whole pizza in the shot!

They say when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Well, what do you do when they give you a meter-long pizza?

That’s the question we were faced with recently when visiting a famous pizza restaurant with a very Jeju name (피자굽는돌하르방) in Hangyeong-myeon, a rural area on the island’s west side.

The literal meaning of the restaurant’s name is: Pizza Baked by Stone Grandfather

At this establishment, apart from the huge pizzas, are its four toppings: Kimchi, sweet potato, potato, and bulgogi. You can have all four or any combo thereof.

… and last but not least, sweet potato.

We went for the Jeju-made mozzarella cheese which was of course fresh, thick and very delicious. There was no room for pasta and the other items on the menu.

Did you know?

Dishes very similar to modern-day pizza have been made and served since at least the Neolithic age, or about 10,000 BCE.

 

Address: 218 Cheongsu-ro, Hangyeong-myeon, Jeju City (피자굽는돌하르방)

How to get there: The trip to the restaurant is nearly as long as the pizza itself… or will seem so. From Jeju City Intercity Bus Terminal you catch the 755 and get off at O’Sulloc bus stop. Catch the 967 and take the short trip to Myeongri-dong stop. From there the third and final bus, No. 950 or 962 will take you the last section to Cheongsu-ri bus stop. The restaurant is just around the corner.

Often there are taxis waiting at O’Sulloc. Given the proximity to the restaurant, that would be a good option as well.
