Maekju Sikdang (맥주 식당)

0

Hidden a little away from the busy streets of downtown Duryu, this cosy restaurant is nestled in the residential area - away from the hustle and bustle but easily accessible.


We were greeted by the friendly manager, Aiden along with the menu. The menu is in Korean, but Aiden speaks excellent English.

They have a range of beer you can choose from, from Kozel Dark and Kronenbourg to their craft beer of German Weizen, Indian Pale Ale, and Bourbon Barrel Stout. They also have other drinks such as your classic Gin and Tonic, Jack and Coke, Jameson, and non-alcoholic drinks.

We ordered three dishes, the first were the Amazing Buffalo Wings – it was seasoned to perfection sitting under a large bed of freshly fried fries with a side of ketchup, house dipping sauce and pickled garlic stems which had a refreshing taste to it and a satisfying crunch.

Next, we had the Corn Cheese Nachos, it was packed with melting cheese and generous layers of corn and chili and bits of almonds (which you can request to exclude if you’re allergic to nuts) and it can definitely be shared with three or more people.

Our overall experience was exceptional, definitely coming back with more of our friends in the near future.

Lastly, we had the Boqueria Gambas: fat, juicy shrimps covered in good quality olive oil, a little dried chili and a side of toasted slices of bread. The simple olive oil sauce was so good, we couldn’t resist mopping that up completely with our carb.

Maekju Sikdang also has outdoor seating, great for a group of five to eight to start the night off. However, the area is closed at 10pm in consideration of the residents around the area.

Our overall experience was exceptional, definitely coming back with more of our friends in the near future.This will be your new favorite place to hangout.

Directions to get to Maekju Sikdang: Get off at Duryu Station Exit 7. Walk toward downtown Duryu and head straight two full blocks, turn left to the alleyway and then turn right at the end of the alley. The restaurant will be on your right.
