The name of this restaurant roughly translates to “Famous Restaurant,” and it is indeed known for its more than affordable prices. One bowl of haejangguk (spicy meat-based soup known for curing hangovers) is a mere 2,000 won. Once you sit down and order, your steaming bowl of soup and a plate of radish kimchi will be presented to you in under a minute, fresh from the large boiling pot manned by the owner. But the restaurant isn’t just famous for its price, the haejangguk is clear with tofu and woogeoji (the outer leaves of vegetables such as cabbage) and boasts a rich and full taste, almost as if the broth had meat in it.
