Haemok Restaurant-how to get here?
The address is 8 Gunam-ro 24beon-gil, U 1(il)-dong, Haeundae-gu, Busan, South Korea. To get here you can take the subway from Haeundae to Jungdong. Then catch bus number 31, 1001 or 1006 to Haeundae Metro Station stop. The restaurant is a 5 minute walk from the bus stop.
The restaurant is open daily from 11:30 am to 10 pm at night. But keep in mind that the restaurant doesn’t serve during the 3pm to 5pm break so plan your visit accordingly.
Now, let’s talk interiors! I really liked the wooden structures and beams that give this place a simplistic yet graceful feel. And the glass walls also add to the charm and give the place an open and airy feeling.
There is also a separate tatami area where visitors can sit to enjoy their food in a traditional Japanese style.
