Dae-dong Ban Jeum (Chinese restaurant),
Very normal Jjamppong, but tasty.
Dae-dong Ban Jeum is the nearest restaurant to KNU among the four restaurants. It is located near the Daehyeon-dong Office. Therefore, you can go there on foot from KNU.
My first impression of Dae-dong Ban Jeum was quite disappointing. The restaurant was little bit shabby, considering its fame. However there were many people waiting. After a long wait, I finally got into the restaurant, and ordered the Jjamppong.
First, the soup was pretty thick and had a rich flavor. We could taste and smell the sesame in the soup. The ratio of noodles to vegetables was also good, the ingredients also looked fresh, and the noodles did not soak up the soup. It seemed to me that instead of using pre-made soup, they make the as soon as it is ordered. I think that is how they maintain their freshness.
The prices are similar to other restaurants, but I felt sorry that there is only a limited menu at busy times. In addition, if you visit this restaurant for the first time, you could easily make a mistake, because everything is self-service. You should take a number, and write the menu and the number on the ordering note. If you do not want to wait, you can call the restaurant to order beforehand.
435-14, Daehyeon-dong, Buk-gu, Daegu. 053-959-4979.
Opening hours: 11:30 am. ~ 7pm. (closed on Sunday)
How to get there: Walk along the Daehyeon-ro, in the direction of Gyengdae bridge, and turn left at the corner of Home-mart. Go straight until the apartment complex, then turn right towards the Daehyeon Office. You will see the restaurant.
Jjamppong with a briny flavor.
Gayaseong is located much farther from KNU, but if you take the subway, you can get there easily. The restaurant is much larger and cleaner than others. In addition, most of the customers were families, so it felt much more familiar.
The soup of Gayaseong Jjamppong was much more refreshing than Dae-dong Ban Jeum’s. It tasted a bit salty, but thanks to the bold Suta-myeon (handmade noodles), it was not a problem. In fact you can taste the flavor of the sea at the seaside. This restaurant is also famous for its Tangsooyuk, or Chinese sweet-and-sour pork. The shape of Tangsooyuk is distinctive and the flavor is also fresh and not too sweet. Therefore, many guests order it together with Jjamppong. Generally, two people order one noodles dish and one Tangsooyuk.
All in all, everything is good to eat, because the entire ingredients and garnishes are cut into small pieces. Another good point is that all items on the menus are available whether the restaurant is busy or not. The services are much better than the other restaurants, but the prices are little bit expensive. This is the only down side.

Jin-heung Ban Jeum
Actually this is the most famous Jjamppong restaurant in Daegu. This restaurant has already put its name on national Jjamppong restaurants. The KNU Times really wanted to cover this restaurant, but unfortunately, it has been closed for a while. According to a report, the owner got sick. I am not sure how long it will take, but if you get a chance, I really recommend you to visit this restaurant. Let’s me show you some information of Jinheung Ban Jeum.

Sinsin Ban Jeum is quite far from KNU, but if you want to experience the plentiful seafood Jjamppong, you should try Sinsin’s Jjamppong.
