bistro Munhwa Shikdang: Korean-western Fusion Bar & Restaurant Near Sungshin Women’s Univ, Seoul

IMG_9320 Gummy bears. That is the main reason why I’m writing a review for this place. Who would be unhappy with a gummy bear offer after your payment?? gmmb Are you looking for a place to relax and chat with your friends? Or are you looking for a romantic date destination? Do you like drinking? Do you like Korean-western fusion food? Do you like gummy bears? If any of these apply to you, this restaurant is for you!

My experience


Walk down the stairs…


Dried flowers, dim lights, cute ornaments. A nice atmosphere.

What we ordered: The Munhwa Shikdang Triplet (문화식당 삼합) Bulgogi pasta with a lot of green onions!

Mix it well!


This was good, but maybe too much green onions? I want to try something else next time because they had so many interesting things on the menu!

Go to Line 4 Sungshin Women’s University Station. Walk out of exit 1. Make a right at the first corner, and walk down the busy shopping/restaurant street. When you get to a wider street for cars, make a left and walk straight until you see a rotary with five streets. Go to the corner with GS25. When you have GS25 on your right, walk straight for a few steps and turn right at the next street. You will see the stairs down to Munhwa Shikdang next to a cafe called Ka fee Klatsch (클라츠). IMG_9238
