See & Do Restaurants


The key to the taste is using ingredients from 4-year-old ginseng cultivated in Geumsan and native chickens grown in the farm. Everyday, young chickens that hatched only 49 days ago are delivered. With these chickens, ginseng, Chinese dates, garlic, and glutinous rice are boiled and make a fine soup.
