Keep It Simple Stupid ! When Remy the mouse won the heart of food critic, Anton Ergo with a simple home-cooked dish, Ratatouille, reminding Anton of his mum's cooking, Mugyodong Bugeokukjib hits home-run with a korean classic, Fish Pollack soup. All you need is ONE home-run and practice till perfection. That is what this eatery (note: not restaurant) achieved. As... More

You grab a table and boom that's what they throw on your table. The side dishes were already on the table in it individual bin. The very thin soup has pieces of dried fish, some egg and tofu. Very light for my taste but very healthy. KRW 6,000.

No Menu, no need to order anything, sit down and the ajumas will serve you with the standard soup and rice. You have to eat the rice with the spring onions and put the shrimps into the soup as condiments. Totally different kinda of soup we have in Singapore, this store uses dried fish instead of fresh fish. But it... More

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.
