The most popular item on the menu is kalguksu. Other delicacies served here include chapssal sujebi, chapssal sundae, ambbong, and suyuk. Having been in business for 31 years, the restaurant insists on making its kalguksu using traditional, home-cooking methods, including rolling out the dough for the noodles with a traditional wooden roller. The broth is made with a diverse combination of 12 ingredients, including red crab, anchovy, and dried kelp, and is boiled for over four hours. Due to such dedication and attention to detail, the broth has a deep, rich flavor, and the noodles are wonderfully firm and chewy.
