The commercial complex next to Jirisan Nambu Management Office on the way to Hwaeomsa Temple is full of restaurants. Jirisan Restaurant is located at the center of the building at the top of the complex. It may look small from the outside, but once inside, people are surprised to find such a spacious interior. Jirisan Restaurant is one of the oldest restaurants in the Hwangjeon-ri area. They are celebrating their 30th year in 2012, after having relocated from its former position by the temple parking lot deep inside Hwaeomsa Valley. Mr. Park, the owner, is the president of Gurye-gun Restaurant Association. This is the same person who claims to have climbed Jirisan Mountain as an elementary student, collecting wild vegetables. The specialties of this restaurant are the set menu with wild vegetables and mushroom hot pot. The set menu with wild vegetables might be similar to what is served in many restaurants located near Jirisan Mountain, but the mushroom hot pot is unique at Jirisan Restaurant.

It seems as though the dish is simply prepared with four different types of mushrooms; pine mushrooms, shiitake mushrooms, pink-tipped coral mushrooms, and neungi mushrooms, along with radish and peppers, and the clean, spicy flavor is excellent and recommended to provide relief for a hangover. Besides this, 17 vegetable side dishes and 20 more dishes including fish are served on each table. These aren’t just ordinary side dishes, but include herbs grown deep in the mountains and include: aster, Korean lettuce, Chinese peppers, edible shoots of fatsia, and a kind of groundsel. These wild vegetables are collected during spring and summer and using a secret recipe are aged for three to six months and pickled to be served during winter when fresh vegetables are scarce.
