The restaurant located 5 min away from the infamous Gyeongbokgung Palace. Usually people comes here right after visiting the place or before. Me personally came here after visiting the palace. Although the restaurant is jammed packed with people, I must say that the queue is pretty fast. Really remarkable food with hearthy filling and you gotta have to try the ginger liquor that come in a small shot glass (it is intended to clear your palate before digging through the infamous chicken in the pot). Really recommend this for those who crave for traditional amd hearty Korean dish.

Awesome, chicken was stuffed with ginseng, red dates, garlic, chestnut and glutinous rice. Soup was "concentrated" with ginseng taste. Go early before lunch or after lunch to avoid the long long queue that build up during lunch.

Worth the visit, will go again if in Seoul !
