Traditional Lunch vs Modern Brunch in Daegu
Daegu has been investing a lot of money to promote their tourism and The Modern Alley is a result of this. The alley gives recognition to some key places in Daegu’s and Korea’s modern history. You have the option to take 5 different routes which have made a connection between Daegu’s past and present. On your quest to exploring Daegu’s sites you might want to stop at the two best restaurants located around the modern ally: Hanok Gugsi and Mansion 5. From a traditional lunch to a modern brunch.
Hanok Gugsi is a traditional style restaurant where you can try the typical noodles (Guksu 국수) and Korean pancakes (Jeon 전). The restaurant has a small courtyard and is built in traditional hanok style, so prepare yourself for sitting on the ground. The house was previously owned by the Chinese poet Han Kukyo.
The restaurant is located in a small side street of the main “oriental medicine” street, it’s easy to recognize as it has big mural paintings of two women preparing the food.
The restaurant’s specialty is the noodles. They have many different types both cold and hot noodles. All noodle dishes come at the same price of 6000 KW. The meals are served with a wide selection of side dishes.

Looking for a Modern Brunch in Daegu? Look no further! Mansion 5 is here at the rescue!
Totally different that Hanok Gugsi, Mansion 5 is a modern style Hanok (traditional Korean architecture) restaurant that focuses on European style brunches. You will have the option to sit inside, a big and beautiful interior with massive windows, or in the beautiful garden.
Their menu includes a wide variety of soups, sandwiches, paninis (I had a panini and it was absolutely delicious) and salads. They also offer many hot and cold drinks like tea, coffee and juices.
This restaurant is a slightly more expensive than Korean style restaurants, but the price is very similar with other European brunch places.
The restaurant is not far of Hanok Gugsi and is easy to find as the modern Hanok building stands out from all the other buildings in the street.
