Once you’ve eaten at this noodle house, called Encore Kalguksu by its die-hard fans, you will find more reasons to go to the Seoul Arts Center across the street. It’s nearby sister restaurant Baengnyeonok that specializes in tofu, and their menus are intertwined. But thick, hand-cut kalguksu noodles are the ticket here, including with seaweed and oysters, in an adzuki bean soup or in a spicy soup with clams (pictured).
