During the super cold winter, porridge was the best comfort food,and the porridge here was super good. The only thing was that they made us order at least 4 bowls for a group of 5, we weren't allowed to share 3 bowls amongst the 5 of us. As my friends weren't big eaters, 4 bowls were a bit too much for us. But nonetheless, this is a place i visit everytime i am in Seoul. =)

I had the seafood porridge here and it was very good. It was a nice change to all the spiciness in all other Korean foods. The portion was very generous and it came with a handful of side dishes.

this national chain is good on the go, but not a destination.

Bonjuk is a chain and the same food can be found in any of the Bonjuks in Korea. Got the veggie porridge but the banchan is came with was the same banchan as the people who got non veggie porridge. Would be nice if they offered only veggie banchan for people who order veggie porridge. The banchan comes in packages and if you like it you can buy it separately. Better porridge can be found in independent restaurants.

I've had a few juks here that were nice, but, ten thousand won for a bowl of mushy, sometimes tasteless porridge is a bit much I think. I think this is one type of food that can be more appreciated by Korean people that foreigners maybe as it's slow food with "delicate" tastes...and by delicate, I mean...kinda bland lol. If it's your thing, you'll like it. If you're not sure...give it a miss.
