Day 143: Seoul (Myeongdong Ginseng chicken soup)

We had a farewell lunch for a friend who returned to Canada for good. So we went to Myeongdong for our lunch, and what's best to represent Korea other than the samgyetang (ginseng chicken soup). :P

This shop was on the second floor, located in a small alley next to the Post Office Tower. It is quite easy to find this shop, they have a big signboard written ginseng chicken soup (參雞湯) in Chinese characters.

Knew about this place from hubby, he said the samgyetang here was pretty good and he ate here quite often with his colleagues. So when I told him to bring me here, he said no, not anymore. Too often for him.


The side dishes

The chicken gizzard was very nice. Even if I usually don't eat this kind of stuff.

They gave us a small bottle of ginseng wine and I poured some to the soup. It made the soup tastier.


The black chicken meat was not as tender as the normal ones. But according to Chinese, it is more nutritious. Well, it's your choice. :)

Samgyetang with black chicken

I couldn't finish mine, it was very nice but it's just too big bowl for myself.
