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.

  • Not worth the hype
    Soup was starchy and not much ginseng taste (preferred the black chicken soup). Waitress wasn't too happy when we ordered 3 sets to share and try. Kim chi was good though.
