They only serve one dish, no menu so no fuss. The soup was DELICIOUS! Great service, very friendly people! I’d definitely go back next time I’m in Seoul :)

After days of BBQ meat and stews and fried chicken, you just need something to clear the palate. This would be the place to go! Again it serves only one dish (read my review on Olrae Guksu in Jeju) and didn't go wrong for sure!...More

They serve only their special pollack soup for 7,000KRW. Queued by local people but turn over is so high so you do not need to wait for long. Best local lunch in the center of Seoul city.

What I really appreciated was they are really trying hard to serve you with their best efforts. The food turned out to be nice. Try using an app to translate and they will try to understand you.
