Start your Jeju seaside trip with abalone dishes made with Jeju abalone, a shellfish that feeds on kelp and seaweed. It has one of the highest protein content of its kind, and it is thought to be one of the most esteemed seafood in Korea and East Asia.
Jeju abalone is famous in Korea for its taste and quality, as it grows in the cracks between coastal rock formations. Its particularly firm and chewy texture is built by braving the strong waves.
Located at the entrance to the Handam Coastal Trail in Aewol, Eunhye Jeonbok specializes in abalone dishes, such as abalone hot stone pot rice, abalone hot pot, abalone porridge, and abalone and seafood ramyeon.
Its signature menus are the "abalone hot stone pot rice," which features rice cooked in a stone pot with a sumptuous topping of sliced abalone, and the "abalone hot pot," full of abalone and Jeju seafood.
Freshly-cooked Abalone Hot Stone Pot Rice
Take the rice and abalone from the stone pot and mix them with the restaurant’s propriety soy sauce*, which brings out the texture and flavor of the abalone to the fullest. Once the stone pot has been emptied, pour some warm water into the stone pot and wait for the scorched rice to soak.
This creates a uniquely Korean dessert that can only be experienced in places that serve hot stone pot rice, sungnyung (scorched rice soup). It has a clean and deep flavor that serves as the perfect finisher for a meal.
*Soy sauce: A sauce made by fermenting soybeans
Abalone Hot Pot made with abalone and seafood
Another signature menu, abalone hot pot, is a soup made with seafood and soybean paste, a fermented condiment made with soybeans, served in a hot pot. It is a delectable feast of seafood, including shrimp, crabs, mussels, conch, and of course, abalone. Don’t miss the soybean paste soup that captures the richness of seafood used in the dish.
