Siwoo Sikdang [시우식당], opened in 2018, is a Korean cuisine restaurant that also serves Italian dishes and especially pasta. The resultant, which has about 8 tables, is located in Seoul’s neighborhood Pirun [Pirun-dong/필운동] —overseen by the administrative neighborhood Sajik [Sajik-dong/사직동]— in the Jongno District [Jongno-gu/종로구]. Cafe Nuha191 [카페누하191] is situated just a little walk up the same road. To open this restaurant, the car wash ‘Speed Mate’ was transformed, which closed down at this address in 2015-16 and the short-life restaurant Kkurine [꿀이네] was located here before Siwoo Sikdang opened doors.
