Yeonghwaru Restaurant is a Chinese restaurant where two of the supporting characters in “She Was Pretty” had their first date. Junwu (Park Yu Hwan) and Han Seol (Shin, Hae Sun) are co-workers at Most magazine and they eat fire jjamppong (extra spicy seafood noodle soup) here. The restaurant has been a Seochon fixture for over 30 years. It is a beloved eatery and it has been used as a filming location for many dramas and movies for many years. The restaurant is a one-story building with a total of 10 tables. Because the indoor space is fairly small compared to the number of customers who frequent Yeonghwaru, you may have to wait a long time before you get a seat.
On the walls, the autographs of every star to visit Yeonghwaru over the past 10 years are on display. Also on display is a timeworn old menu. The “fire” jjamppong that Junwu and Han Seol eat in the drama does not actually exist but Joon Woo-Han Suhl couple has selected, actually does not exist. Instead, there is the gochu jjamppong (spicy seafood noodle soup with Korean chili peppers). Gochu jjamppong and gochu jjajangmyeon (noodles with spicy black bean sauce), are the best dishes at Yeonghwaru. Cheongyang red peppers are added to ordinary jjamppong and jjajang, enhancing the taste with spiciness and flavor. These two dishes were invented 15 years ago and they became well known via word of mouth.
