Beef Soup in January

There are only 2 items on the whole menu.  Beef - and Beef.  That's it!  But you'll probably want the soup.  'Cause the event is "Beef Soup in January".  You can add salt to taste (the soup normally is bland) chili paste, and green onions.

You have these soup choices: flank only, brisket only, innards, mixed meats or tongue.

Sul Lung Tang is typically simmered over a low flame over a period of several hours to an entire day, to allow the flavor to be gradually extracted from the bones. It has a milky off-white, cloudy appearance.  Seasoning is generally done at the table according to personal taste and this dish is a local dish of Seoul, Korea.

Comes with Rice and Kimchee.  You may like to put the rice in the soup which is more the Korean way of things.  I prefer rice on the side but then again I'm not adding much if any salt to my soup either so I'm in the minority here.

Cost is roughly $10.  If you want the boiled beef soo-yook instead of the soup it's $20 instead.

Soo-yook is normally boiled beef brisket slices served on a bed of shredded scallions and tossed in a spicy toasted sesame vinaigrette e.g. beef soup without the soup.  But everybody seems to get the soup (Sul Lung Tang) here.  After all, that's the name of the place.

NOT FAMILY STYLE.  Everyone pays for their meal separately; soups are hard to split.  We may split an order of boiled beef among the table to try it though, so bring more than $10 to be safe.  It can't hurt to have extra beef to dunk in your soup, after all.

    The Beef Soup here had more natural taste in it than the Chicken Soup at my previous event. I think I'll skip the banchan next time, it hit me later with a blast of msg and or salt so I want to skip it just to make sure it wasn't already in the soup (I didn't add anything to the soup except green onions and perhaps even too many of those).

      Hi John, yes let me know about the other soup location. Chances are good I've heard of it but maybe not.

      I'm sorry, but that would be inconvenient for the other attendees.
