Nothing special apart from the soup is cook using puffer fish. I still prefer fugu sashimi instead of cooked one. We ordered clear soup and spicy soup.

Must visit, must eat menu. Try the clear one if you want to really taste the authentic soup with its own flavor. Try spicy one also.

This restaurant is well known for wellfish dishes in Korea. Various swllfish dishes such as fried one, boiled one, stirred one, and soup are served as a full-course meal here. All dishes are very delicious. If you like swllfish dishes, this place is a must-go.

Light soup base with nice fish texture. Side dishes are nice too. Experience taste of the sea in this old traditional shop. Do note shop is in a small lane, not easy to locate.

Blowfish (which is (really) anglicized from the Korean as Fuku fish), prepared as sashimi, sushi, stew and soup.
