3 out of 5 stars

This almost four-decades-old restaurant takes you straight back to 1969, the year it opened. Formerly, its clientele was local welders and factory workers, turning up to sit around oil drums, grill chopped beef and drink soju at the end of a long day's work. After a wave of publicity through TV shows and blogs, however, businessmen in suits have become the main customers. The only main dish on the menu, heifer sirloin, costs a rather pricey 32,000 won per serving. This is not the most comfortable place to eat and the service may not be the greatest, but the atmosphere definitely beats any other meat joint in the city.
