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