The food was very good and the service was excellent even though they were really busy. I definitely recommend you check this place out as it's quite popular in the area.

Pork soup with rice is definitely not to be missed if you are here. The condiments and side dish are excellent, raw garlic, green chilli pepper, and their soya bean paste made an excellent pairing with the pork soup with rice. They have innards with...soup and rice, and etc but our favourite is nonetheless the pork soup with rice. This is something like a local food which you will not want to miss it very much. Enjoy!More

You can see how fresh everything as preparation is done at the doorstep. Full with locals and tourist alike, the menu is simple. Choice of Pork Slice, Pork intestines or Blood sausage. Every order comes with the side dishes. The ajuma will teach you how...to eat the meal. My first step was to drink the soup as it is. It would be a bit blend. But next you will add in the fish paste, bean paste, spring onions. (Add as you go and you can taste the flavours.) What comes next is what I didn’t expect. It was the vinegerete sauce that the Pork was dipped in! It was heaven. It totally bring another dimension of taste. (Considering I eat a lot of Pork in my home country) Definitely recommended!More

We were so looking fwd to devouring some daeji-gukbap once getting into Seomyeon (2nd trip!) As you know Korea sleeps in, so there's not much available for breakfast for early risers. We sought this location out, there were other daeji-gukbap options open at 8am Saturday,...but we stuck w our plan. The woman working was kind, she came over and stirred my husband's gukbap for him 😂 and told us how to eat it w various add ins (I'm Korean he's not.) She and other staff were do cute, friendly and sweet, I devoured my food and was sad when I got full and couldn't finish. I'm sure no restaurant option is wrong, but it was a great way to start off our day w a stomach full of warmth and kind smiles all around.More

The street is packed with a few gukbop(pork soup rice) restaurant but this one provides leanest pork slices and the soup is not that oily. So it’s best for healthy concerned people:) Try pork rice soup or pork slices set. Dip the slice in the...sauce and wrap it with onion, pepper, garlic and leave, it’s just delicious.More

The lady recommended us to add chives to their signature soup, and adding on salted shrimp and kimchi to flavor their meat, their gukbap is truly magnificent. The meat was fresh and delicious.

First time eating Gukbap in this restaurant . The meat was fresh and delicious . A must for those who visit Busan. The pork bone soup was super yummy. Will definitely return for more. The owner gave us a cup of free mocha coffee when...we paid for the bill. Great hospitality and good food !More

The ox-bone soup with noodles and clear soup with beehoon are great! The staff will bring you the side dishes - garlic, different types of kimchi, spring onion. Water is available too.

I searched this place out with my husband based on reviews and I'm so glad we did! It's nothing fancy...soup with a very tasty broth and pork slices. They bring you sides to add if you want (garlic, onion, green chili, salty sauce, shrimp, green...onion with chilies). If you don't like it spicy when it is delivered gently lift the spoon and there you will find a glob of chili paste (I kept some buy took most of it out). Highly recommend eating here. We spent 18,000won on 2 bowls of soup and a bottle of beer.More

Busan is famous for gukbap. If you have time for only one, this is if! I had two other versions but were disappointed. The soup is flavourful and pork slices generous. Staff were friendly and helpful too which I find rare in Korea.

Went at 10am. 800m from my hotel. There's a queue already, had to wait 10min to get in. The pork is chewy, the soup is blend therefore you can add the marinate shrimp or chilli to spice it up

Pork soup is a well known dish in Busan so as soon as I landed, I started the search and this place came up. For a simple dish, it went beyond my expectation. The soup was so flavourful and amazing that I don’t mind eating...it everyday under extreme heat! I highly recommend this place to others! They boiled the soup in front of the restaurant with lots of pork bones and parts. The soup after hours of boiling we’re white and creamy. Definitely visit this place if you are in Busan however, it’s not a obvious find but with google map, you’ll be fine. The owner speaks enough Englsih to help you get what you want and the service is quick too!More
