I was in the area and saw the reviews for this place so I decided gave it a try. It's a good local restaurant. We went for lunch and there isn't a menu. You just sit down and they bring you food. There was a soup, rice and fried egg. The food was okay but a bit bland, I would... More

Honestly, I am baffled as to how this has been ranked #3. Because of this ranking we walked a long way to find this place. We arrived to find there is no menu and we were just brought fish soup (not nice fish soup!). It's literally a restaurant that only serves pollock broth with bits of tofu in. So gross!... More

Came in around 3pm, restaurant was half full still you could feel it is a very authentic place with locals coming to eat. The soup is good if you like fish soup. I think it could be strange if you're not used to this kind of flavor. The kimchi was very good as well. It's one of those places you... More

The place was full, and I was seated at a solo seat. I didn't need to order because the place serves only one item. - dried cod and egg soup.

Pollock soup in this particular resturaunt is a bit different from what you will taste at most places serving the same item, because they mix beef soup and pollock soup mixture. Its the reason the soup isnt as bland as in other establishments. Also you can serve yourself with a side of Korean pickles and kimchi. Menu is singular which... 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.
