韓国・ソウルで発酵の旅その② 友人のレストランNattodoを訪ねてみた

韓国滞在二日目は、納豆仲間のジェさんが納豆の定食屋さんを今年2月にオープンしたと伺ったので、行ってきました! 閑静な住宅街の中にあるジェさんのお店は、絵本に出てきそうな可愛さ。良い感じの音楽も流れていて、超おしゃれです。主に、女性やカップルのお客さんが多いのだとか。 ランチ時だったので、ジェさんおすすめの「春の山菜乗せそば」を選択。丁寧に手作りされている納豆と、こだわりの食材を使ったお蕎麦です。山菜は、季節のお野菜をジェさん自ら市場に買い出しに行かれているとのことで、とても新鮮でした。 お酢で味付けされており、ツルツルとあっという間に平らげてしまいました。納豆もふっくら大粒で、本当に美味しい!それにしても、お酢と納豆の組み合わせって合うのですね。新たな発見でした。 夜はバーにもなるようなので、ぜひソウルに行かれる時は訪れてみてください。   【お店の情報】 3-9 Hyochangwon-ro 55-gil Yongsan-gu, Seoul Instagram: nottodo_natto
