The soup tasted blend initially as I was expecting something strong. Perhaps it was the color that gave me the impression. The dish went well with the generous portion of kimchi. Not many dishes I experienced below would leave pleasant after taste. Surprisingly, the taste...More

We stayed at The Royal Hotel right across the street and felt that we had to try out this place to know what the fuss was all about. The soup was tasteless. Without the kimchi we wouldn't have finish the one bowl we brought in....More

Ordered a bowl of soup with dumpling and rice cakes and a bowl of soup with rice. The soup with rice was nice. It was light and tasty. The dumpling was extraordinary juicy and adds more flavours to the soup base when it is opened...More

Went on the first day in Seoul, the line in the morning is often 10 people, so it had to be good. And as expected it was. Prices are fair and the staff knows English. I will go again

遅めの朝食にソルロンタンはいいです。そしてソルロンタン屋さんはキムチが大切ということがわかりました。ここはキムチがおいしい。待っている間に食べ、またハサミでチョキチョキキムチを切ってソルロンタンに入れて食べました。お餅入りを頼みましたが、ご飯もついてくるのですごいボリュームでした。全部食べたかったけれどお腹いっぱいになってしまいむりでした。A good seolleongtang (beef bone soup) place.

You can add kimchi, salt and pepper to spice...More

We enjoyed so much here for its thick soup with beef slices, together with unlimited kimchi. We also ordered the cartilage with heating flame underneath and big dumpling and they were very yummy to go with the sauce they provided. The rice wine they promoted...More

So glad I tried this before I left Seoul! One of the best meals I have had. I think the best was No.2 on the menu, which had a more robust soup flavour. You can easily finish a whole bowl of rice with the soup!...More

After being turned down by Maple Tree House across the street, we went to this soup house to have dinner and we were happy that we made that right choice! We were seated quickly. The menu is simple and straightforward with both Korean and English...More

Myeongdong / Namdaemun
Arguably Seoul’s most famous neighbourhood and
undoubtedly one of its most popular, Myeongdong takes
shopping and eating to new heights, with hundreds of
shops, restaurants, and cafes all stacked on top of
one another. The rise in popularity of Korean
cosmetics, fashion, and more has made this area a
must-see for visitors who come and marvel at
Myeongdong’s often frenetic pace and energy. Lotte and

In terms of stew dishes, just beef I believe, the meat, the bones, the tails. I believe I posted the menu in one of the pictures.
