[KOREA] SEOMHYANGGI (섬향기) – Korean BBQ in Nami Island

Nami Island is a beautiful island with lots of fun things to do. The island has lots of food options, from the sit-down restaurant to food tents and stalls, selling everything you could want. During our #FoodInLoveKOREA trip, we have visited Nami Island and After strolling the island around 3 hours, we were starving and looking for restaurants that are around here.

There is a fair selection of restaurants on the island but we personally recommend dining at Seomhyanggi for lunch. It’s located at the center of Nami island with some other restaurant and cafe.

Once you get into the restaurant, the first thing that you have to do is find the available seat and table. There is indoor and outdoor dining area, but we recommend you to sit outside so you can view around and feel the cold breeze (especially in autumn and winter).

This was a self-service restaurant, so you need to go to the cashier, and then order and pay it directly. There are some side dish and drinks that you can take as much as you want. Like other Korean restaurants, the service was so-so and the waiters not friendly. Even though, our orders came in a short time.

The signature dishes in Seomhyanggi are BBQ Chicken and BBQ Pork Belly. We ordered it 1 portion each. Both chicken and pork belly costs you KRW 12,000 for 1 portion. Your order comes with the side dishes such as kimchi, chili pepper, and lettuce to wrap the barbecued meat. In addition, you can order rice separately.

The chicken and pork are really tender, juicy, and well marinated with powerful seasoning. It’s balanced between salty, savory, and bold of flavor. The pork belly is very greasy, so we prefer to grill it longer to reduce the oil.

I think what made the meal even more enjoyable was because of we able to sit at one of the benches outside. Admiring the view around us and feeling the cold breeze against our faces, with the strong aroma of barbecued meat wafting through our noses and enticing our taste buds all over.

Overall, the food was delicious. Both the chicken and pork belly was the best dish, well marinated, tender, and goes well with the sauce. Even though it’s a little bit pricey with the small portion, it’s still worth a visit and we recommend you to experience Korean BBQ at Seomhyanggi when you visit Nami Island.
