While many restaurants in this alley can claim originality, this restaurant is arguably one of the most creative when it comes to flavors. When first presented with a serving of chicken in a washbasin sized brass bowl with a side of water cabbage kimchi, you’ll think, “That’s it?” That is, until you taste it. The chicken is boiled with garlic and rice cakes, while the kimchi’s made with a special combination of soybean sauce, vinegar and mustard. And to finish it all off? Add kalguksu to the mix.
