A good meal in winter. We really enjoyed it and want to try to cook it at home. It looks really simple. You have to serve Kimchi and water yourself but that is good because you don't have to wait for anyone to get them...More

We were actually looking for the 265-22 original chicken, but entered this one by mistake. However, it is really good. Just order Set A and prepare 25000. It is a very memorable meal for two. Don't forget to drink all the soup after boiling the...More

Nothing beats being cheated off than this place. Not worth the effort to walk all this way here to try this. It's just chicken onion and mushroom soup one can cook at home. Rip off for a pot of chicken soup.

Gwanghwamun / Jongno
If Gwanghwamun is the unofficial living room of Seoul,
Jongno is the main hallway connecting some of Seoul’s
most important historic sites and neighbourhoods.
Being one of Seoul’s oldest neighbourhoods, the area
is rich with history and culture in its palaces,
shrines, and temples. Stand in the centre of
Gwanghwamun Square with Gyeongbokgung Palace and Mt.
