Michelin Guide Seoul has announced the new Bib Gourmand selection, ahead of the release of the 2018 Seoul guide next week. Of the 36 restaurants awarded the Bib last year, 31 retained their status while 17 new entrants made the updated list, making the total count to 48.
Six new food categories debuted in this year’s Bib selection, including dwaeji-gukbap (pork soup), gomtang (beef soup), Korean contemporary, memil-guksu (buckwheat noodles), Taiwanese, udon and Vietnamese. This year’s selection showcases some of Korea’s most beloved dishes as well as the growing diversity of Seoul’s dining scene.

Take Mapo ok, for instance. The restaurant has been serving seolleongtang (beef soup) for close to 70 years since it opened up for business in 1949. Koreans’ love for soup and rice are definitely noticeable in this year’s selection as it also includes Hadongkwan, a legendary institution located in the heart of Seoul which serves what is considered the most sublime bowl of gomtang and rice in the city. Meanwhile, Okdongsik, the pioneer of a new genre of pork soup featuring a consommé-like clear broth and a generous heaping of thinly-sliced lean Berkshire K pork, also received a Bib nod. The 100 bowls of soup the restaurant serves each day sells out fast.

Buckwheat noodles are another delicious and affordable Korean staple enjoyed by locals every day. New entrant Yangyang Memil Makguksu makes its noodles from scratch, to order, using 100% buckwheat flour. The freshly-made noodles are served Gangwondo style – in chilled briny dongchimi (winter radish kimchi) water with plenty of crushed laver, sesame seeds and half a boiled egg. Mi Jin, another new entrant, serves Japanese zaru soba-style buckwheat noodles with noodles made daily in its own factory located below the restaurant.

Mish Mash, categorized under ‘Korean contemporary’ uses traditional ingredients like kimchi and fermented condiments to create innovative dishes that do not restrict themselves to a set genre. “Expect the unexpected” seems to be the motto here.

In addition to Korean food, Asian cuisine such as Vietnamese, udon and Taiwanese also made this year’s selection. Inaniwa Yosuke, the Seoul outpost of Sato Yosuke in Tokyo, serves Inaniwa-style udon. Emoi, a relative newcomer to the Seoul dining scene, specializes in authentic Hanoi-style pho, while Wooyukmien is one of the rare spots in the city where diners can get a taste of Taiwanese beef noodle soup that is as close to the real deal as it gets.

Restaurants selected for the Bib Gourmand list offers food for under KRW35,000, equivalent to 40 U.S. dollars.

Cancellations - non personalised/bespoke items

The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (formerly the Distance Selling Regulations) provide consumers with the right to a 'cooling-off' period to allow you to change your mind. Under these regulations, you have the right to cancel your order, without explanation, within 14 days of delivery (starting the day after you receive the goods) and to return the goods for a refund within a further 14 days (28 days in total). The Distance Selling Regulations do not apply to businesses nor to individuals who are trading or acting as a trader (buying goods to re-sell for profit) because no-one is the 'Consumer'. This means there is no 'cooling-off' period and the order cannot be cancelled once processed.

Where an order is placed for an item which is to be personalised or is bespoke, cancellation is not possible once production has started and these are expressly excluded from The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (formerly the Distance Selling Regulations).
