This restaurant was made famous after many A-list Korean celebrities started posting pictures of them eating at this restaurant – owned by idol singer Se7en. It specializes in a spicy braised chicken dish, and when I say it’s spicy, it really is spicy (even when it doesn’t look very spicy).
As an avid Kpop fan, I have seen many pictures of celebrities eating here. Although it was not specifically on my itinerary to eat here, we just had to stop by when we walked by it while shopping near Ehwa Womens University.
They have a menu in English, so don’t forget to ask for that after sitting down. There are two different types of chicken; original and Se7ens special (we chose the original). From there you choose your spicy level (we went with level 1 on a scale of 0 -4), the type of noodles you want (we got the fat noodles), and if you want to add rice cake (yes). That was all we ordered even though our waitress told us that it was not going to be enough for four girls. I don’t think it would have been enough if we were actually hungry (we ate a lot of street food while shopping), and found this just enough for us.
