This being the green tea region of the country, it stands to reason that you'll find many dishes featuring it as a special ingredient. These include nokcha sujebi (green tea dough flake soup), nokcha naengmyeon (cold buckwheat noodles with green tea), and nokcha kalgooksu (handmade noodles with green tea).

Other than the two restaurants at the Daehan Dawon, you can try regional specialties at places in Yulpo, including Nokcha Hyangi (the name means "the fragrance of green tea"), 321-1 Yulpo-li, Hwacheon-myeon, Boseong-gun (tel. 061/852-9794). Located close to the Yulpo Nokchatahng, they serve all manner of green tea dishes (even a green tea pork cutlet, nokcha donkatsu), which start at W5,000.

There are some restaurants in Boseong, too, including Teukmi Gwan, located in front of the Boseong Hyang-gyo, 93-13 Boseong-li, Boseong-eup, Boseong-gun (tel. 061/852-4545). They specialize in pork and beef dishes, but you can also get regional green tea dishes, including their nokcha naengmyeon with bright green tea noodles, starting at W5,000. For a traditional hanjeongshik, Hangil-lo (tel. 061/853-0202 or 061/852-3281, 766-3 Boseong-li, Boseong-eup, Boseong-gun) is an economical option with meals at W9,000 to W10,000 or bowls of bibimbap or naengmyeon for only W5,000.
