1. Daewonga (대원가)
If you're in Jeju, the one thing that you absolutely need to eat is their speciality, seafood! And Daewonga serves mouth-watering seafood stews which you can share with your whole travel gang. One thing you shouldn't miss at Daewonga is their haemul cheongbol or seafood steamboat (KRW60,000) which has abalone, mussels, crab and squid all in one pot with kimchi broth.
#HHWT Tip: Once the soup is mixed with all the seafood, add a packet of ramen in to soak up its flavour.
The soup isn't too spicy and once the taste of all the seafood sinks into the mixture, the broth is so yummy. Although the price of the seafood steamboat is quite steep, each pot serves around 3-4 people, so you can definitely split the cost! If you'd like something more affordable, get their small abalone hotpot and other seafood soups which are priced at KRW13,000. They also serve Grilled Mackerel Fish which costs around KRW15,000.
Fun fact: Did you know that the seafood at Daewonga is freshly caught by Jeju’s famous haenyeo divers? So that definitely makes your meal there more special.
#HHWT Tip: Daewonga is in the list of Muslim-friendly eateries in Jeju, endorsed by the Jeju Tourism Organization. So, you can even request to do your prayers here!
Halal Status: Only seafood dishes sold, no alcohol/meat is used in the preparation of food. Alcoholic drinks served in the establishment, so do dine at your own discretion.
Average Price: KRW13,000-75,000

2. Jeju Onuii (오누이회국수전복돌솥밥)
Jeju Onuii is known for its Abalone Hotpot Rice. Abalone is cooked in a different way here - it's sliced and then cooked in a hot stone pot with pumpkin and gingko. The best way to eat it is to mix all the ingredients together so you can taste everything in a single bite.
Each set of the abalone hotpot rice costs KRW15,000 and comes with mackerel and side dishes. Pretty affordable if you ask us! Once you're done with the dish, what the Koreans like to do is to add hot water to the leftover rice and drink it as soup.
While Jeju Onuii is not on the official list of Muslim-friendly restaurants in Jeju, the eatery only sells seafood and does not use any alcohol or meat in its cooking.
3. Choonsim's House (춘심이네)
Choonsim's House (or Chunsimine) is a Muslim-friendly restaurant specialising in Korean seafood dishes. The eatery is well-known for THIS hairtail fish. Can you believe it costs 78,000KRW?!
Have a taste of this exquisite fish and you’ll know why it’s so expensive. We’ll admit, we just couldn’t get enough of it! Its fresh taste is unlike anything we’ve tasted back home. Definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
But if you’re on a tight budget, get the grilled mackerel instead! Chunsimine’s spread of side dishes are amazing too, so feel free to ask for seconds!
Halal status: Only the seafood dishes at Chunsimine are Muslim-friendly. Although they don’t serve pork, the other meat at the eatery is not halal-certified.

4. Tammora (Ramada Plaza Jeju)
The Ramada Plaza Hotel in Jeju is home to Tammora, a Muslim-friendly restaurant. What's great is that they have separate halal menus for Muslim travellers.
As most Muslim-friendly restaurants in Jeju serve only seafood, here’s where you can get your fix of halal bulgogi!
Trust us, every bite into their beef bulgogi will be a treat. Served on a hotplate, it was juicy and the marinade had the right balance. It was unlike anything we’ve eaten back home! Their set meal prices range from KRW29,500 to KRW55,000.
