The congee is quite thick and I can see that they are making it with heart. The black sesames they use are of high quality. I ordered oyster and mushroom congee and it's far better than the congee with the same price range in Hong...More

I had trouble finding this place. Service was generally okay but I felt rushed to choose my dish quickly. There is a wide selection to choose from. My friend chose the crab meat one, but it wasn't that good. Go for the special abalone one....More

Went for breakfast. By 10:30am, the restaurant is already full. They do not allow sharing and the serving is big so most of us ended up discarding the balance. Porridge is very flavorful, personally I like the prawn porridge the best. Sweetness of seafood was...More

The place is popular and the shop is not big. Prepare for queuing in peak hours. The spicy seafood congee is awesome. There are two spicy levels: normal and super. Normal spicy level I think is already good, and people dun eat spicy food usually...More

As an Asian, porridge is a staple in our diet. So stumbling on this place was a bonus. Located on the second floor in the heart of myeondong, the restaurant is not difficult to find. There is usually some waiting (and not much waiting space)...More

Every order is prepared upon order so it's fresh although it will take approximately 20-30mins. The ingredients are fresh daily so it takes extremely delicious. My favourite place that I must visit during my trip to Seoul.

Meal was served with small side dishes. I've visited the outlet nearby Skypark Central Hotel more than 5 times. Really missed the old bonjuk outlet where the ajumma staff were friendlier and warmer to customers. I returned in June few weeks ago and were surprised...More

Myeongdong / Namdaemun
Arguably Seoul’s most famous neighbourhood and
undoubtedly one of its most popular, Myeongdong takes
shopping and eating to new heights, with hundreds of
shops, restaurants, and cafes all stacked on top of
one another. The rise in popularity of Korean
cosmetics, fashion, and more has made this area a
must-see for visitors who come and marvel at
Myeongdong’s often frenetic pace and energy. Lotte and

The menu has photos and English, Chinese and Korean on them explaining what the congee are. If someone speaks putonghua , that would be better as there are putonghua speaking staff in most places now. Hope u enjoy this... More
