It's definitely deserving of its accolade. Nothing fancy just real goodness. Love loads. The added Perilla seeds powder into the soup is healthy and nutritious.

I've seen in some reviews believing that Michelin Starred restaurants must be booked before hand. Obviously they have no clue on how Michelin Stars are merited, hint: presentation, taste and quality. NOT a waiting list of booking, luckily. Even in Singapore, a hawker stall has...More

We stumbled upon this place and the first giveaway is that we could get tables without reservations (quite atypical of Michelin starred restaurants) Their signature dishes were samgyetong and fried ginseng. Both were average. Nothing to shout about. But inexpensive, so we didn't feel so...More

I was looking around for a good place to eat samgyetang after wandering around Bukchon and happened to walk by this restaurant. I figured the samgyetang must be decent if it was part of the restaurant's name and I'm happy to say the samgyetang here...More

Delicious, filling and a must try soup. We found a great local eatery right on Bukchonro road a block or two up from Anguk station. On a warm day you can sit outside on the patio. We ordered delicious Ginseng chicken soup with succulent chicken...More
