UPDATE: Rats sighted in the kitchen of the Mugeodong location.

The Ulsan University location is the oldest, but there has always been at least one in Shinae (Seongnamdong) on the walking street. Currently there is one above the Angel-in-us coffee, and another towards the end of the walking street, across from Gun clothing.

yuganae-logoYu-ga-nae is a dalkgalbi restaurant. Dalkgalbi is chicken breast meat mariated in a spicy pepper sauce, and cooked in front of you with cabbage and rice noodles. Dalkgalbi is a great, spicy meal. Best enjoyed if you bring your own baguette and make a dalkgalbi sandwich.

The other popular item on the menu is cheesy rice, or Dalk-yachae-bokum-bap. This means chicken and vegetable fried rice. You have to ask for cheese separately, but that’s easy, since the Korean word for cheese is cheese. Cheesy rice a great lunch option, as you and your friend can dine well for less than 10 000 won.

The Dalkgalbi is 6000 won per person, and the Dalk-yachae-bokum-bap is 4000 per person. You can also order a variety of noodles to be added, or beef or seafood, but the meal is best with chicken.
