School Food Blooming Mari Store Front Songdo

One thing that isn’t a rarity in South Korea are restaurants especially chain restaurants. Recently we went a School Food Blooming Mari Restaurant, which focuses on Korean food but often with a little twist. They are popular with students as it’s cheap but the quality is still high. Their are a few locations outside of Korea (Japan, Thailand, Indonesia, Hong Kong and USA), but we’re focusing on the Korean based chain.

Thoughts: Firstly as already mentioned School Food offers good value food with most dishes under 10,000 and therefore similar to a traditional Korean Restaurant. We went for the Tteokbokki and the Iced Noodles (naengmyoen). Both had a few extra options such as sides and spice level. The bill was under 20,000 and we were happy and full. One other benefit was that the menu was also in English.

Overall it’s a nice place to visit for lunch and it won’t break the bank.
