Pollock soup in this particular resturaunt is a bit different from what you will taste at most places serving the same item, because they mix beef soup and pollock soup mixture. Its the reason the soup isnt as bland as in other establishments. Also you can serve yourself with a side of Korean pickles and kimchi. Menu is singular which... More

For the price you can eat in Seoul, I found this restaurant a bit expensive, but the quality of the food was good. A nice place in the center.

We came on a Sunday night.. Place was full and there were 4 people ahead of us. The staff actually seemed distressed to see us and gave rather rude hand signals to "stay outside" and wait. After a few minutes, we tried to get their attention if we could study the menu while we wait. instead, we got the same... More

Great location, paid just 7,000 KRW so is pretty cheap. Not a fan of korean food but the food was also served pretty quickly. They didn't gave me a menu. Just put some food on the table

The meal is served very quickly. Good meal with reasonable cost. Business men around there used to eat their lunch or dinner at this restaurant, because this soup is good for people who drank before.

We were planning to come here for our first meal in Seoul but they were closed as we arrived, so we ended up having our first breakfast here instead. Location is pretty easy to find, close to Myeongdong area / 5-10 mins away from Euljiro 1 station (Subway #2). They serve only 1 thing and that is fish soup with... More
