The soup is so soothing, both my parents and I loved it very much. There is no menu needed. The staff is very nice and friendly. It's 7500Won very reasonable.

The price was 7500W when we went. Not expensive but does not worth this price. I was decently disappointed. The food was not aweful, but did not worth a high ranking on Tripadvisor. There was not much taste in the soup. It would be something...More

I am a regular customer for more than 15 years. 'BUKEO' means big pollack dried for about 60 days in a cold winter, and when we boil it, it gives a clear and light soup. Koreans eat Bugeokuk for a hangover the day after drinking...More

My first time try this type of food in Korea and it was amazing. When you enter the restaurant you don't have to order anything just sit and wait abit then you meal will come because this restaurant has only one menu.

This restaurant is like many very good restaurants in Korea they serve only one dish. In this case, it's famous for its bugeoguk (dried pollack soup) since 1968. Very good for 7000₩ each or $6.17. Wait in line. Sit down and well there aren't any...More

Cheap eats, there is only one dish in this shop so just go in and take a seat, they will greet you and serve you shorty, explain to you how to eat if you are a foreign. Good food to keep yourself warm during winter.

Went for lunch. There is only dish. And it wasn’t great. Quite plain. Filled with locals. I guess if you like this soup it’s the place to go. Otherwise, i would rather go someplace else.

We came to this restaurant for breakfast. We chose this restaurant to try the traditional dried pollack soup (where they say locals eat after a hangover). There was no queue when we reached the restaurant around 10 am on a weekday. As they only serve...More

Went for breakfast before 9am on Sunday and didn’t have to wait. They only have one dish on the menu so it was simple. Loved the soup as it was homely and the onions with the rice. Will definitely go again when I’m back.
