Woorijip’s Noodle Bar is No More
Lunch’er Amanda pointed out to us the other day that K-town’s cheap and wonderful stalwart Woorijip has taken out their fresh-made noodle option. Formerly at the back of the almost-always-crowded self-serve restaurant, it’s been built over and the noodle options moved.
It looks like it’s all premades now. Worse, the portions are way smaller than they used to be, and the cardinal noodle sin of storing the noodles within the broth, causing sogginess, is in clear commission. My heart weeps and sympathies go out to those fans of Woorijip’s noodle bar.
The packed, down-the-middle crowded layout is gone in favor of more space.
I think they’ve expanded on their banchan offerings too, if you want to grab some Korean pickled spicy stuff for future snacking.
I admit, I never did order noodles from them, but everyone I know who went there almost swore by them. There’s still tons of great options (you can and should stuff yourself on the duk bok gi) and they still serve bottles of soju and other interesting adult and all-ages libations that go great with Korean chow.
If anyone’s got a K-town noodle option to fill the void, especially with this not being the first time we’ve been without Woorijip noodles, comment it up!
