Really delicious oxtail soup (Ggori gomtang). The price was reasonable at 15,000 KRW, and the amount of meat in the bowl was quite generous. The banchan was limited but typical for a sul lung tang place; fresh and tasty as well.

Great location and good hearty food at a very reasonable price. Very predictable food quality. Not a gourmet restaurant but for the price you pay, you will be satisfied. Ate there numerous times and never got disappointed.

Samcheongdong / Bukchon
This historic neighbourhood was traditionally home to
Seoul’s middle and upper-classes. Now it’s most famed
for its clusters of beautiful, traditional Korean
homes (called hanok), many of which are found in
Bukchon. Many of these homes have now been converted
into restaurants, cafes, shops, and even guesthouses,
and their unique architecture offers a look at Korea’s
traditional beauty. Samcheongdong’s main and side
