Best Kimchi Fried Rice (and Spicy Korean Chicken plus more) in Seoul – Kodachaya, Gangnam (How to go and what to expect)

My friend went to Korea ahead (she was there during January) and discovered this restaurant! She kept on telling us to find and eat in Kodachaya but we didn’t know how to go there since she didn’t tell us the “how to”. Thankfully we found the place by accident! (Been finding places by accident during this trip)

How to go to Kodachaya:

1. Get down atย Sinnonhyeon Station (line 9)
2. Go out of exit 4

you’ll see this as soon as you get out of exit 4, turn right

walk straight

You should notice Kodachaya on your right on the first corner you’ll see (it’s a little bit accross the adult shop on the left)

As soon as you enter, you’ll be given this device with a number on top. You will tell the chefs that number when you order.

There is no english menu so we had to rely on my super basic Korean skills.

Everything we ordered WERE 100% DELICIOUS!!!

Note: You can also drink beer at Kodachaya! The place is lively and filled with young people! Definitely a place to be if you want to hang out with the young crowd (or just eat).

ps. I was able to go here before What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim was televised and I noticed that Kim Mi So drank here with her co-officemates at episode 15!
