We visited Metdol Sundubu based on several recommendations. We came for breakfast and their food selection was limited to tofu stews, no bbq pork or Korean pancakes for breakfast, the waitress informed us. We ordered the spicy soonsubu stew and the plain one. Both were just okay. We are from LA where there are lots of Korean restaurants so their food did not stand out and was just average to us. Their spicy soup tasted like instant Korean ramen and that was a little disappointing to us

국물에서 라면스프맛이 나요.. 관광지에서 9000원인것 치고 밑반찬도 많았고 양도 많았고 구성은 괜찮았어요. 바베큐도 시켰는데 독특하더라구요. 다른 곳들을 못 가봐서 딱히 비교할 수는 없겠지만 그냥 무난했어요. The soup taste like ramen soup..... Considering its location, overall it was fine at the cost of 9000won. I ordered barbecue also and it was little different from what i ate at the other restaurant. Might be they have special recipe for it.

Taken here by a local who recommended it. Said there was normally lines to get in but we got seated right away. I had the spicy seafood soft bean curd soup. Mild spice and delicious. My wife had a no-seafood soup and liked it. Lots of free side dishes. see photos

We were in the area to visit the nearby Botanical Gardens and Bird Park and wanted to grab some lunch and ended up here largely due to the good reviews and the big crowds of people waiting for a table....figured the food must be good given the number of people waiting for a table. We got a number and had to wait about 20 minutes. Once seated, ordering was quick and efficient. We ordered the spicy soup, grilled pork salad, and the seafood pancake. I liked the grilled pork salad best followed by the soup. Would not order the pancake again as it didn't seem fully cooked and had a bit too much filling. As others have said, the sides were yummy and the service efficient and quick.

Ordered the spicy soup. Food and small dishes are very good, especially the Saba fish and kimchi. It's popular enough that the hotel staff and taxi driver knows it by name.
