From the Jeondong Catholic Cathedral in Hanok Village, walk straight into the village. You will pass a castle on the left. Keep going straight until you come to the first intersection. Take a right. Walk past the Ministop. Veteran will be right across the street from the middle school on your left.

Cost: 5,000-7,000 won per dish

Wait time is very low. Takes about 5-10 minutes from ordering for food to arrive. The seating is also very quick. No waiting, come in eat, and leave. Atmosphere is alright, a bit noisy. The place is obviously for a quick meal and then to get you out again. Veteran is very clean. Staff does not speak much English, but you can point to the menu of what you want. All the food here is awesome and completely worth a stop in!
