Everyone understands the popularity of this place, so let's check it out!! :)
It's been awhile since I've been here, so I'm looking forward to making another visit!
Sulung (Seollung) Tang is a Korean broth (soup) made from ox bones (mostly leg bones, brisket and other cuts). The bone and water are 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 and is normally eaten together with rice and several side dishes; the rice is sometimes added directly to the soup. Seasoning is generally done at the table according to personal taste by adding salt, ground black pepper, red pepper, minced garlic, or chopped spring onions. It is a local dish of Seoul.
Cost is roughly $10. IF you want soo-yook, it's $20.
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 (Seollung Tang) here. After all, that's the name of the place.
NOT FAMILY STYLE. Everyone pays for their meal separately. 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. I don't know if they accept credit card, so please bring CASH to settle your bill.
6:45 p.m. is when we're meeting, so please arrive on time. No +1, unless there are empty seats.

Out of respect to everyone, if you change your RSVP to a NO after 9 p.m. on Jan. 7th, it will count as a no-show. If you have 3 no-shows, you will not be permitted to any of my events. This is a fair rule. No?
