This was the first time I tried Fugu fish, and except for this fact , my experience is not remarkable. The restaurant is very simple, not perfectly clean, along with the soup you will get a set of some Korean snacks (like seaweed and spicy...vegetables). The soup itself was tasteless , but the fugu fish was amazinglMore

There are many restaurants in Seoul with the same name, but I think this house is the best. It is not necessary to order large quantities and recommend to taste various dishes. If you go to Busan, you will be able to feel much more...satisfied than if you go to a restaurant that is worth visiting.Especially, you have to experience Mojoo that is a kind of korean traditional liquor.More

This is our first Fugu experience. Fugu in sashimi is good and the fried Fugu is also delicious. The restaurant is full of locals and it is a good experience to try this “dangerous” fish in this nice restaurant.

去日本沒吃過河豚(Fugu),來韓國釜山卻品嚐到了河豚美食。點了河豚生魚片,河豚清湯和炸河豚。生魚片Q彈可口,魚皮口感也超棒。不愧是可用命一搏的絶品佳餚 If you have not had Fugu before. Strongly recommend you to try here. Very reasonable price and delicious.

Nothing special apart from the soup is cook using puffer fish. I still prefer fugu sashimi instead of cooked one. We ordered clear soup and spicy soup.

Must visit, must eat menu. Try the clear one if you want to really taste the authentic soup with its own flavor. Try spicy one also.

This restaurant is well known for wellfish dishes in Korea. Various swllfish dishes such as fried one, boiled one, stirred one, and soup are served as a full-course meal here. All dishes are very delicious. If you like swllfish dishes, this place is a must-go.

Busan provides plenty of good eating opportunites such as pork soup, cold noodle, raw fish etc. but have you try Fugu(blow fish) soup?? This restarurant is famous for blow fish soup. Nowadays, they provide Fugu shushi at lunch time, I don't know whether it is...pop-up event or not. Soup is good, side dishes are good. Usually people in Busan go here on Saturday or Sunday morning to get rid of hangover. It works well to us.More

Light soup base with nice fish texture. Side dishes are nice too. Experience taste of the sea in this old traditional shop. Do note shop is in a small lane, not easy to locate.

Blowfish (which is (really) anglicized from the Korean as Fuku fish), prepared as sashimi, sushi, stew and soup. Clearly a popular restaurant with locals, with friendly service, although having tried blowfish once we wouldn't choose it over other fish. Rather rubbery and tasteless. Eat it...for the novelty value, and being able to say "I ate poison fish, and lived !" The restaurant serves a killer (pun intended) Okonomiyaki. Not easy to find this place. It is in a small square set back from the main road one block north of the Paradise Hotel, and behind the Kia showroom and sand coloured Meriel Hotel building. Look for the circular red 24 hour sign on the main road and head into the car park.More
