I've been visiting Mukshidonna for years until they relocated to expand their restaurant. They used to be hidden in an alley and it was hard to find because we always missed the sign that points to the restaurant. LOL! We always had to stand in line and wait to get a table while being tortured with the smell of tteokbokki.... More

It's army stew. Everything in one hot pot over flame. The seafood was better than the beef. Service was efficient and food was good. I would come back again. Nice to have no frills Korean "fast food" like this to warm up a very old day.

Wonderful meal!!! The meal at mukshidonna samcheongdong topped our family list of food ate in Seoul. It is indeed very tasty....not too spicy, just right. The outlet is nestled amongst the traditional shops which is very nice. The staff at the outlet is very helpful and pleasant. We had a enjoyable experience there.

The place is crowded and we were fortunate that they got a table for us without much waiting. The army stew is quite spicy but very satisfying. It's felt so good eating this during cold weather. Can never forget the taste. Thumbs up.

We spotted this restaurant by accident. Yes, straight walk in for lunch. No queue for us. Some staff can speak Mandarin too. We just ordered and walk for our army stew to arrive. But the best moment is when the rice is fried at the hot pan with seaweeds *it's heavenly*

This eating place primarily serves tteokbokki (rice cakes) with cheese, bulgogi, budae or seafood, and you can add on more cheese or other things on the menu. For us, we added ramen and egg. What you ordered is then cooked in a giant pot right in front of you, and then you start eating. It was not crowded when we... More
