Not long ago, we tried to have a meal here. Unfortunately we had to resort to "Plan B" because of a plumbing issue. we go again!


**NOT FAMILY STYLE** - dishes are not easily shared.

Cost per person is $15-$25 depending on which soup you order.

What's on offer are all variations on Samgyetang (Chicken stuffed with ginseng, jujubes, pine nuts, chestnuts, garlic, and sticky rice, in soup).

You can have it with or without ginseng, 2 other variations with herbs and another variation with abalone.

That is all there is on the menu.  Like many Korean restaurants on the top of their game, they focus on their specialty.

Expect low levels of salt (but you can add salt to taste).  This is Korean health food!

This is not a very large place, so we will be a small group this time.

      I'll do a May event, as anytime after that is too hot for soup....

    We didn't get to experience the Magic Herbal soup, but this place whips up a mean samgyetang. The banchan was on the conservative side but hey, no one is perfect! Thanks for coming, everyone! I will be back!

    I gave 1 less star just for the lack of exciting banchan. On the other hand, the manager/owner was great and the soup stayed piping hot for a while! Great seeing everyone as always!

      Googling it, I find there is indeed a lot of discussion on this very point
