I can't call this a "Chicken Soup" or "Beef Soup" event 'cause this place doesn't serve only one sort of soup. But soup it is. In February.
NOT FAMILY STYLE - each person is responsible for paying for their own food and drink order, soups are not easy to share. We might split some dumplings and/or grilled fish though...
The house specialty is supposed to be the samgyetang but I'm not sure how much they really specialize in that. The banchan side dishes are said to be very freshly prepared.
A sampler of their offerings, including the samgyetang, is listed below:
- kalgooksoo (knife-cut noodle soup, choice of chicken, anchovy or kimchi broth)
- soo jae bi (torn noodle soup)
- samgyetang (low-salt chicken soup with jujube, dates, garlic cloves ginseng)
- kimchi jjigae (kimchi stew with uncured bacon)
- kongchi kimchi jjigae (kimchi stew with mackerel pike ["saury"])
- kong bi ji (soybean pulp soup)
- jolmeon (like a spicy cold vegetarian pasta)
- denjang jjigae (fermented soybean, smells stinky, tastes good!)
They also have dumplings, grilled fish and other crowd-pleasers such as bibimbap and fried rice. Pictured below is the kalgooksoo.
