수언산방 (壽硯山房)

This is probably not a well-known tea shop for foreigners in Korea as there is no English name. Romanized, the name is pronounced as SuEonSanBang. The tea shop was once a residential home of a Korean. And my lack of knowledge on this point does not allow me to properly introduce it. We only came looking for this place because J had been here before with a Korean friend. And it was definitely worth the trip. We arrived and were lucky enough to get seats as the place seemed to always be filled with people with more waiting for seats.

Although the place does not have an English name, the menu does provide a lot of information about the different items with nutritional information.

We ordered the Autumn Squash bingsoo and Korean Black Raspberry Injeolmi to share. I wasn’t too fond of the idea of autumn squash but the taste was definitely a lot better than I had assumed it would be.

I’d love to be able to provide directions for this place – but since I was brought there, I’m not sure I know how to properly direct one. I’ll try to get a picture of map soon so that this little popular gem of a tea shop among the Koreans can be shared with more people.
