Samarkand Uzbekistan

"This is a down home Russian restaurant if there ever was one. Mouthwatering noodle and beef soup, potato and beef plates galore, and hefty and generous 3,000 won lamb skewers! Not to be missed! Located at Busan Station Exit 9. Go in hungry, roll out full without coughing up too many ?."

Filling breads big enough to share 2-3,000

Russian Beer 5,000

Meals under 10,000

Take a group so you can try a little bit of everything.



Little hole in the wall Indian place run by what my friend calls a “Hippie Ajuma.” Cheap eats, chai lattes, good curry. Make immediate right coming out of PNU gate and it is a half block down on the left.


At same spot as Kebabistan is a great little Vietnamese restaurant. 2nd floor with a great view of the PNU student throng. Real Vietnamese coffee. Try the spicy sauce rice noodles and the fried spring rolls.

Head out exit one, walk 5 minutes until the main intersection and it is on your left.

Won Chon

Ultra laid back place with all kinds of  “old Korea” feeling. Located on a walled in compound with trees and a fountain. Even a resident monk--all right in the midst of the busy city outside.

There are a variety of traditional Korean dishes.

Located on the same one way street as The Basement, just past Loving Hut.

Fish & Pork

Barbecued shellfish is their specialty. It's very cheap and has outdoors seating. Staff is made up mostly of PNU students that usually speak English.

PNU subway, exit 1, make a left and it's on the corner.
