In front of Hwaeomsa Temple, Yewon Restaurant is located at the end of the road to the temple past the Jirisan Nambu Management Office. The unique octagonal exterior of the building will catch your eye. Not only that, but inside the restaurant various awards and recognitions the restaurant has received in food competitions are displayed, demonstrating the extraordinary passion the owner has for food.

The passionate philosophy of this restaurant can be demonstrated by how they prepare winter kimchi. Every year, more than 1,000 heads of cabbage are prepared and made into kimchi, which are then shared among disadvantaged families in the local area.

All the family members of Yewon are involved with the research and development of food. The female owner of the restaurant, Han Gi-nam, has successfully filled the position of president of Baekse Namul Research Organization as well as Dongi Nara Kimchi Research Organization and Jeolla-do Native Food Research Organization. Based on these experiences, she has received awards from the International Kimchi Festival and the Award from the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism at the Korea Food and Tourism Expo.

Two types of kimchi, that use an enzyme personally developed by Ms. Han, are patented dishes that can only be tasted at Yewon. With simple and clean flavors, these dishes are probably well-suited to foreign taste buds as well. The 15~20 side dishes that accompany the set menu with deodeok or pink-tipped coral mushroom hot pot are prepared on site and well-seasoned. Compared to other nearby restaurants, Yewon doesn’t offer as many side dishes but the presentation and quality makes up for quantity.
