Izakayas are pricey in Seoul and Muntaro is no exception. However, the food is authentic and delicious. So if you are willing to pay the price to go to an izakaya, then this the place to go. The first four photos are of Set A, which includes a small plate of sashimi, five skewers, and Nagasaki champon, for 59,000 won.
Small plate of fresh, fresh, fresh sashimi.
Chicken wings, pork belly & green onion, chicken breast, zucchini wrapped in bacon skewers. These were all shioyaki (salt-grilled).
Enoki mushrooms wrapped in thinly-sliced pork belly in teriyaki sauce.
Muntaro is apparently famous for its Nagasaki champon. The broth was very refreshing and spicy. There’s something about spicy broth that’s not red. Love it.
Mochi-iri tofu (5,000 won) is tofu made with rice cake. This was quite nice!
Asahi on draft for 8,500 won.
Basement seating. Reservations recommended.
