This place came highly recommended on websites, from friends & we were craving for non spicy soup so, we had to try this out.
There were 5 of us at the restaurant and we were seated by a Chinese lady (from PRC) and were presented with the menu. The specialty are the ginseng black chicken & normal chicken with stuffed glutinous rice (priced at 30k & 20k Won respectively). We ordered the black chicken & another ginseng chicken that is cheaper (14k Won). But the lady told us that we MUST to order a minimum of 3 items & wouldn't place our orders until we ordered something else (she stood there & sulked). Finally, we ordered a roast chicken. The lady came back with 2 small bowl of rice (dried up rice that has been left for 1-2 days) YUCKS! and the usual kimchi dishes & water.
The ginseng soup arrived together with 2 miniature cups of wine which we are to pour it into the ginseng soup. Be careful not to pour too much unless u really like the combination of the wine with the soup. Anyway, we tasted it & all of us agreed that it is overrated. We weren't WOWed by the taste of the soup nor the texture of the chicken. Surprisingly, the roast chicken tasted the best.
Would I recommend to my friends or anyone who visits Korea? A definitely NO!!! We can get better ones with better service & value for $$.
