Nonsan's Restaurants= There are hundreds of small Korean restaurants serving typical foods such as kimbap and soups. They are scattered through-out the city, so that finding one is perhaps the easiest thing you can do in Nonsan.

Fast Food and NoodlesEdit

Foreign FoodsEdit

There are at least two Italian-food restaurants (Da Sarang, Bellevue), two Indian restaurants specializing in tandoori chicken, two or more Japanese short-order restaurants, and at least three Korean-style Chinese short-order restaurants (one just off of Highway 23 south of 5-Points, one in campus-town). A number of places offer pizza, though at a much higher price than chicken or Korean foods generally run. There is also a fast-food restaurant near Konyang University serving hamburgers and brats.

Pub-style barsEdit

Nonsan has an abundance of "Hofs," including

  • Buzz, in Konyang University's campus-town.
  • Yes, Hof & Restaurant
  • Fox's Pub (Rest & Hof).

Most hofs offer a nice assortment of Korean and some other food, including fruit platters, seaweed soup, and deep-fried sea-food. Beer is pretty much limited to Hite and a couple of other brands not considered especially appealing by the locals.

Soju divesEdit

A number of tiny establishments lie cheek-by-jowl on the west side of the railroad right of way.

Bruh, this thang is waaaaay out of date!
