Famous ox bone and beef soup served in traditional Korean stone pots. Perfect choice in winter days. There are other items on the menu including noodles and dumplings. Reasonable prices and good taste.

Nice ox knee stew soup. Nice and slightly strong kimchi. A can-have everyday comfort midnight food indeed.

Always noted there were long queues for this whenever we visited Migabon porridge which was upstairs of this restaurant. So we decided to eat this 24 hour restaurant this December trip. We ordered all their specialities which was 2 soups and 2 fried beef dishes....One of the soups came with meat that was a bit tough. The other came with tendon which we liked and the fried beef dishes had tender meat as well. Overall, not too bad but not as good as we anticipated it to be given the queues.More

One of my Korean comfort food. Never fails to satisfy me :) My kids and my Mum who tried it for the first time also enjoyed it. You must try the “ox bone stew and boiled rice”. Simply delicious!

We read some good reviews about this restaurant so decided to try it since it’s near to our hotel. It was a good decision! Restaurant had a queue while we reached just before 8 pm though the queue moved quite fast. We ordered the beef...slices Seollongtang and kimchi pancake. Soup looks a little cloudy and simple but it tastes really rich and flavourful. Beef is of good texture too. You can add some salt, pepper and kimchi too which are provided at each table. Kimchi pancake is thin, crispy and with fresh meat. Both are really nice comfort foods especially for cold weather! We thoroughly enjoyed it and went back for dinner again before going home. Will definitely come back again!More

Made a special trip to Sinseon after reading the reviews online. The soup was just ok not fantastic and I felt very thirsty for the next few hours. I ordered one soup and a fried beef dish but was served two bowls of soup and...the beef dish. I didn't want to point out that the order was wrong as communication was a problem n decided to have the extra bowl of soup since there were two of us. I won't eat at this restaurant a second time. The fried beef was, however, tender.More

We chanced upon Sinseon Seolnongtang restaurant in Myeongdong shopping district one night in September. Went there early in the morning for our breakfast on the following day. There was a small queue but we got our seats rather fast. We ordered a Kimchi pancake and...a Tri-seolnongtang. Food were served promptly . We loved the piping hot and flavourful beef broth . The beef texture was tender and mixing the rice with the beef soup was really good. I am never a fan of kimchi but l love the kimchi pancake which was simply delicious. The food portion was of good size for two people. The place was quite congested but it was clean. Staff service was just average and the prices were reasonable . We had a pleasant breakfast.More

Came here at 7:30am for a little breakfast, and wow- what a great time. Family ordered the Seolleongtang, and I had the tri-beef version. Staff was friendly, and actually greeted us in Korean, then quickly in English. Menus had English, and we ordered in English...with no problems. The soup is served steaming hot, and in a good size. Be sure to read the card on the table (written in Korean, English and Japanese) about how to correctly enjoy your soup. You MUST season it yourself with the supplied salt and pepper, and if you want to spice things up, you can also add chili powder. They also give you a small bowl of steamed rice. Take a spoon of that rice, soak it in the soup after you season it right, and enjoy. With a little salt and pepper, the soup’s flavor is intensely rich and beefy- without being oily at all. When enjoyed with rice, it’s almost a creamy rich beefy soup. Absolutely delightful and satisfying, without being heavy. The tri-beef version is loaded with melt in your mouth sliced brisket and lean beef cuts- enough so that you can enjoy some beef with literally every spoonful of soup. To do it even better, grab some of the all you can eat cabbage kimchi and turnip kimchi located in 2 steel containers at your table (fish it out of the tin with tongs, and cut it with scissors-fun!), and top off some spoons of your soup with that. Wow. If you leave here hungry, you did something wrong.More

In terms of stew dishes, just beef I believe, the meat, the bones, the tails. I believe I posted the menu in one of the pictures.
