산너머 남촌, Duck Restaurant near Sanbon Station

The name of this restaurant translates to NamChon (name of the town) over the mountain. I visited here for a teacher's dinner. The food was delicious and the presentation beautiful. The main entree consists of roasted squash cut open to look like the petals of a flower. They place a mound of rice with pine nuts and Korean jujubes in the center and then pile a heaping mound of roasted duck meat on top. Everyone gets honey mustard for dipping. One of these platters will feed 3 or 4 people with healthy appetites (sorry couples and singles, they don't offer anything smaller). Not bad for 55,000 won plus you get a sweet squash soup to start, side dishes and sujaebi.

There are several more of these restaurants in the Seoul area as well. Enter the name into naver maps to find the closest location.

Directions: From Sanbon Station leave the main entrance/exit (exit number 3). Walk all the way across the plaza and turn left when you hit the road after E-mart. Walk straight. You will pass a Lotte grocery store and continue up into a more residential area that runs along the side of the mountain. Eventually you will see the restaurant in a plaza on the right side of the road. It's about a 15 minute walk from the station or a short bus ride on the number 2 (the bus stop is outside exit 3 as well). If you take the bus get off at the stop you see in the picture above. The restaurant is behind this bus stop.
