This restaurant is like many very good restaurants in Korea they serve only one dish. In this case, it's famous for its bugeoguk (dried pollack soup) since 1968. Very good for 7000₩ each or $6.17. Wait in line. Sit down and well there aren't any...More

Cheap eats, there is only one dish in this shop so just go in and take a seat, they will greet you and serve you shorty, explain to you how to eat if you are a foreign. Good food to keep yourself warm during winter.

If you are looking for a Korean style stew this is the place to go. They also have fried eggs for (KRW 500 / US$0.50) an egg but it is not on the menu. Enjoy!

I love the texture of the noodle with the soup. It is a good balance dish. A must place to go during winter!
