Nwijo (뉘조) is a Korean restaurant specializing in wild vegetable cuisine. The name ‘Nwijo’ means ‘the god of the silkworm,’ and likens wild vegetables to silkworms in that both can be eaten in their entirety. The restaurant serves original full-course Korean meals that are prepared using hundreds of kinds of wild vegetables, including special seasonal vegetables.
A typical full-course meal starts with delicious pumpkin porridge, followed by seasoned wild vegetables, root vegetable ssam (condiments wrapped in vegetable leaves), slices of boiled meat, and steamed lotus leaf-wrapped rice served with jjigae (Korean stew) and various side dishes. This kind of traditional feast is pleasing to both the eye and the palate and is topped off with sikhye (traditional sweet rice drink). Lunch specials are also available.
