We Once Had in the Past

Nostalgic Gyeongyangsik
Koreans were able to go to gyeongyangsik (literally "simple Western foods") restaurants' only on special occasions like family celebrations or romantic dates for young couples until a couple of decades ago. Many people paid a visit to those restaurants on their father's pay day and experienced using 'fork and knife' for the very first time in their lives. Let us find some gyeongyangsik restaurants that remain in Incheon serving as a bridge between the past and the present in Korea and taste what is more than just a meal!
England King Pork Cutlet Restaurant
Five minutes on foot from Dongincheon Station is 'England King Pork Cutlet' which has become so popular recently - particularly after it was covered heavily by various TV programs including 'Baek Jong-won's Three Great Emperors (a cooking-variety show)' - that people have to wait for hours to taste 'pork cutlet' of the house.
The restaurant has also gained fame as one of the filming locations of the country' popular television series 'Reply 1988.' It opened its doors in 1981. It is now one of the city's most famous eateries. The restaurant evokes patrons' nostalgia of the 1980s with its antique furniture and furnishings.
England King Pork Cutlet no longer serves 'beef cutlet.' It however cooks its pork cutlet the same way that it has been for more than 35 years.
The restaurant only serves two dishes, king pork cutlet and cheese pork cutlet.
Either of the dishes comes with soup, bread (or rice) and salad. The cutlet of the restaurant is a bit thinner than its Japanese equivalent donkatsu.
The meat does not taste greasy. The sweet and tangy flavor of its sauce stimulates patrons' palates. The main plate comes with macaroni, slices of cucumbers and boiled carrots, which evoke one's memory of the past when they or their family could rarely afford such dish.
The restaurant serves patrons desserts including coffee, ice cream and soda drinks from a dessert stand as much as they want.
