Jeju Must Eat, Sister Noodles (Jamae Guksu /자매국수) is a hidden gem restaurant and highly recommended by locals. It is located at Guksu Geori (Noodle Street) at Jeju city.

We kicked start our Jeju road journey today with the traditional food of Jeju – a bowl of tasty pork noodles at Jeju must eat, Sister Noodles (Jamae Guksu /자매국수). Jamae Guksu is one of the Jeju must eat in our Jeju food guide list.

We were there on the weekend morning around 10 a.m. and surprisingly already have a waiting queue in front of the restaurant. We parked our car on the backstreet and walk to the restaurant as the available parking in front of the restaurant was already full.

How To Order At Jamae Guksu

The queue at Jamae Guksu

There is a queuing machine located at the front door but unfortunately all in Korean. We looked at each other but still continue to proceed with the ordering.

At first, the machine will ask you to key in how many people before proceeding to food ordering. There is the English menu stated outside of the restaurant but not on the older machine. We just blindly ordered the noodles based on the price as we would like to try out all the noodles. We also would like to add on the “mui-mandu” (dumpling) as a side but end up giving up.

Once everything is done, you will be required to key in your phone number as the reminder message will be sent to your phone when it is your turn.

We try to key in our country phone number as we are using the Wifi eggs but the machine keeps on pop up error message. We ask for help from the customer behind and she explained that the Korean phone number should start with 010-XXX-XXXX. So we end up modifying our phone number in order to complete the booking.

For safe, we still proceed to the counter and inform the ajumma to alert us when it is our turn. I would suggest you direct proceed to the counter to ask for a queuing number instead of get the queuing number at the machine-like us.

Although the line is long the waiting time consider fast. We were waiting outside for around 20 minutes before our table got cleared up. The restaurant itself is not too big and only can fit less than 20 tables.

Visited customers are majority Korean instead of foreigners like us. Once we get into our table, the staff then brought some side dishes and our bowl of noodles came really quickly.

Seaweed Topping On Jamae Guksu Noodles

The broth is Gogi Guksu is slow-cooked by Jeju black pork for more than 10 hours, making it so delicious and tasty.

A container of seaweed is placed on the table, take as much as you want to enhance your guksu. The taste of the guksu becomes very savory and delicious.

We ended up unable to finish the whole three bowls of noodles due to the big portion.

As we have ordered all the noodles soup from Jamae Guksu and personally I do feel the Gogi Guksu is still the best. The Gogi Guksu tastes really good with mouth-watering delicious. The meat is also refreshingly light, thinner, and less fatty.

I strongly recommend eating here as the taste is good and cheap.
