One of the best meals we had in korea. No choice just one thing on the menu but that's because this restaurant doesn't need to do anything else. The pollack soup is good for a hangover. The side dished are provided by myself. Kimchi, salted cucumbers and so on. The servers are very busy. Lunch is probably the time of... 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

Arrived at 8am for breakfast. There is no queue and I was seated quickly at a corner. The next moment I knew the ladies were already giving me a bowl of rice and a hot bowl of fish soup. She explained to me that I can put some tiny sakura fish into the soup if I like. The soup is... More

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

One of my Korean friends introduced me to this place. I guess it's a fast-food Korean in the sense that it's fast, but not in the sense that you want to avoid fast food. There was a line when we got there, but we didn't have to wait long. The place was packed, and they seated us with strangers. Now,... More
