Braised cutlassfish served in a brass bowl is appetizing. And Hoerak is one of the first restaurants to witness the start of this old alley. Most of the restaurants here are 20 to 50 years old, so you can count on their food. But we decided to eat here because they didn’t stand outside yelling, “Seats available inside!” We ordered our food and got huge chunks of radish with cutlassfish on top. We first had some rice with this tasty fish and then mixed the rice with spicy seasoning and well-cooked radish, which goes perfectly with dried seaweed. Yum!

This restaurant was great. I enjoyed the robust flavor of the kalchijorim soup. The big pieces of radish that was on the bottom soaked up the sauce like a sponge.
