Hodori Restaurant in Biyangdo Island (비양도 호돌이식당)
While Udo Island dominates the eastern scenery of Jeju island, two small deserted islands, Chagwido Island and Biyangdo Island, enthrall not only almost all travelers, but also many Jeju locals. Unlike Chagwido Island, where one hour is enough to fully enjoy the scenery, Biyangdo Island needs at least 2 ~ 3 hours to walk at a leisurely pace. (No public transportation here!) The island is often referred to as ‘a microcosm of the volcanic island of Jeju’, showing all the geologic features including lava shore, volcanic bombs, lava chimneys, scoria cone etc. and still remains deserted and lonely. Visitors, mainly anglers, normally take 9am and 12 pm ferries to and from the island, and the Bomal (Topshell) porridge (보말죽) at the Hodori restaurant is one thing they never miss right before leaving the island. Hodori restaurant, with only 4 tables, looks just like any other simple eatery in a small country village, but is on the must try list of many foodies. Bomal means topshell in Jeju dialect. When you walk alongside a basaltic beach, look carefully amongst the rocks; you can catch them by yourself!
Every side dish here is offered on a self-serve basis, but only ‘deep-fried gingyi (little crab)’, another delicacy of this eatery, is served by the owner. See more Seafood Restaurants
