Have been her on a low-season Sunday. Limited choices, but that's fine for me. I chose the soup: nice food and good value for your money, but this is definitely not worth waiting and especially not worth a number 3 spot of restaurants in Seoul.

Sinseon Seolnantang is my menu favorite, this restaurant is must have visit when a came to seoul especially in myeongdong. Broth soup is very fresh, especially when the whether is cold, it could be warm your body, and the beef so smooth.

Ox bone soup that is milky white! there is limited menu choice, different types of soup: ox tail soup, beef soup and one other + dumplings. All tasty and hot, good for cold weather. A bit of a line up all the time, but service is quick so you won't need to wait too long.

This restaurant is one of the franchise restaurants, Shinsun sollongtang(Korean beef soup). Soup is very delicious and the price is good. Kimchi provided free as much as you want. It's good for alone, with friend, or with family.

It's right opposite our hotel in myeongdong and we had it for supper! The soup is milky and it gets better the more you drink it! One of the best soups ever you won't regret it! They make really good kimchi too.

Neighborhood Profile
Myeongdong / Namdaemun
Arguably Seoul’s most famous neighborhood 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 Shinsaegae’s massive department stores are also popular draws for both Korean and luxury products. The department stores, just like Myeongdong’s streets, are crowded around the clock. Myeongdong’s many street food carts are also immensely popular for their inexpensive and quirky offerings (French-fry-encrusted corn dogs, anyone?). The neighborhood’s popularity, as well as its close proximity to other popular sights and neighborhoods, makes it one of Seoul’s most popular places to stay.
