A little waiting time in a narrow staircase. Tables were available but they were waiting for bigger group. Generally worth the experience for Ginseng Chicken Congee.

Wonderful breakfast right in the centre of Myeongdong. There is always a queue outside so be prepared to wait your turn. I had the mushroom and oyster porridge which was very good. It was accompanied by the usual Korean side relishes and kimchi.

Love the tasty Congee. The man who served us was so honest as I tried to order other beverages, he stopped me from ordering and giving me advice to eat Congee first so that it will not spoil the taste. Will go again.

My family went there for lunch and we were all pleasantly surprised with how tasty porridge in Seoul can be. The portions are decent and very reasonably priced.

This porridge is over rated as we have tasted better ones elsewhere on our trip to Seoul. It’s more expensive too. We had to queue to eat and really not worth it. The porridge was rather thick and sticky.

We were looking for a substantial but not heavy breakfast. Rice porridge fits the bill. The line starts at the door to the restaurant and wanders down the narrow flight of stairs and into the street. The waiter was very helpful dishing out menus to...More

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

Are you asking about the queuing line? It'll be the left line facing the building. The right line is for the restaurant on the ground floor. Migabon is on the 2nd floor.
