Changwon Food Guide: 10 Must-Eat Restaurants & Street Food Stalls in Changwon

July 27, 2017 Roseanne Arnett

Changwon is a paradise for birdwatchers, who flock (pardon the pun) from all over the world to peep at Korea’s largest migration site. Junam Wetlands Park, in particular, is a popular spot to watch thousands of birds flap their wings. The Musical Fountain in Yongji Lake is an equally spectacular sight, as are the sculptures exhibited at the Gyeongnam Art Museum. Local alkaline hot springs are perfect spots for unwinding after a day of gazing and exploring.

Bombay

Reviewed By TravelinSteve2013 - Houston, Texas

My business colleague and friend was "enjoying" bread and similar fare until we introduced him to Bombay restaurant.
Great food and according to our colleague, very authentic.
Delicious chicken with garlic as well as Tikka Masala. The Yellow Tarka Dahl was amazing!
Whether or not you want Indian and/or vegetarian, you should try Bombay restaurant. You'll be glad you did

Fantastic place, a little bit hard to find. The food standard is well above what I would expect from "bar food". Good selection of beers.

Outback Stakehouse Changwon Jungang Store

Reviewed By Lauren F - Changwon, Gyeongsangnam-do, South Korea

I've visited Outback in Changwon on several occasions over the past four years and I must say that the food has gone downhill. From dry ribs, chicken breast, and improperly cooked steaks, I now avoid Outback--even though it used to be one of my favorite restaurants. With such a high turnover of customers during the day, it's hard to get personal service. Paying top dollar for unsatisfactory food is what you'll do here. I've just been disappointed too many times to want to return again.

Finally gave up on the Unknown and luck dips with the local cuisine and decided to try something that I'm familiar with.
Well good food, excellent portions, and prompt service, well it was really not a full house. But yes it's definitely worth a visit and good value for ones money.
