A little hidden gem 🙂 … very small place, but serves excellent Samgyetang (Korean Ginseng Chicken Soup).
We came here exclusively for the Samgyetang. Menu was very small with 1 page of items. There was 4 kinds of ginseng soup. BF ordered “Black Garlic” … and I want to order something I haven’t tired, so end up with “Perilla Seeds”. Not knowing exactly what Perilla Seeds are, the waitress told me its like sesame.
We were served with 3 banchans:
Kimchi – excellent, very flavorful
Radish – love it too
Nabak kimchi (not sure if that’s the right name) – ok for me
Our soup was served pipping hot! And we love it that way. Chicken was very tender, sticky rice was well cooked. The Perilla Seeds has a indescribable taste, its not bad though. It made my soup a little too thick to my liking. BF’s Black Garlic was excellent … I ate a black garlic, its very good , not overpowering.
Just 2 soups made us really full. Overall, It was a great meal. The only thing missing was … the Ginseng wine … that would make me super duper happy.
Total was around $43.00 (excluding tips) … thanks again BF 🙂
