When I visited "Puja," Nepalese resturant in Dong-dae-moon, I was pleasantly surprised in a number of ways.
First of all, when I saw the dishes and tasted the cuisine I could have easily thought this was either an Indian restaurant or a Chinese restaurant, for the dishes coming out of the kitchen resembled such nation's cuisine.
The price was also similar to Korean restaurants as well, even though this was a very unique and family-atmosphered restaurant.
It is located among old traditional Korean restaurants, but for me, walking on this main street, it was unique and exotic because I felt like I was going back to Korea thirty years ago.
In Seoul, there are probably only a few of such restaurants. I also noticed that the building where it was located also had a Nepalese grocery and other items shop, so it looked like this building served the local Nepalese Migrant workers, on a smaller size to the restaurant.
