Spicy Chicken/Pork Soup – Seoul (South Korea)

Many Korean culinary require group of people, as it’d be difficult for single person to order.

Such as this traditional spicy chicken soup, it’s served in an enormous pot, the portion is more fitting for about 3 men at least.

The time I went was just with another friend, two of us barely finished it even with my big appetite, and we were absolutely stuffed.

It has the resemblance of stew, but by the Korean name used it’s still considered to be soup.

All Korean restaurants serves free side dishes, all dishes in this photo is free of charge.
Spoon & chopsticks
Everyone would just drink directly from the big pot with their spoon.
Korean chopsticks are made flat, which is different from Chinese-style chopsticks, it may be a bit difficult for those who are used to the latter.

For the drink to go with the meal, I have to mention about Korean Soju.

This alcohol is incredibly low-priced, only a bit over 1000won in most places, which is cheaper than beer and coffee (FYI coffee is actually the most expensive among the three types of drink) – This does not make any sense to me, as the high to low in price should be the other way around, most locals don’t even notice it and find it peculiar as well once I mention it, but that’s just the way it is here.

Korean Soju is much like Japanese Shōchū (焼酎), although Soju is smoother, Shōchū is rather earthy and bites on the tongue a bit. Despite the similarity of names, the taste of Korean Soju actually has more in common with Japanese Sake.

This is the extremely popular Korean Soju.

If you are a lone traveler like me, eating by yourself may be a bit tricky here, but not to worry, there are still places you can go for the portion of one.

Such as this restaurant recommended by my friend, it’s right across from Noksapyeong Station, they only serve one menu: Spicy Pork Soup.

Therefore, it’s fairly simple to order even if you don’t know the language, just go in and point the number of meal set you want then you’re done. (gotta pay up front though)

This is a photo taken in front of the restaurant, under the green road sign is Noksapyeong Station exit 2, just cross the heading to where I’m standing and you’ll find the restaurant.
Wide angle – in front of restaurant to station.
There’s a Thunder Burger beside the restaurant, the one with white sign and black Korean letters is where you want to go.
That’s the only menu they have: Spicy Pork Soup
Price is 6,500 won
Feel free to help yourself with a cup of water.
This is probably the best seat in the house as you’ll be able to view the road, although most of the time it would be taken.


This is the meal set served.
Spicy Pork Soup
There’s also side dishes lodged inside the table, I especially love the Korean seaweed.

Both of these are the typical Korean culinary, if you want to experience traditional Korean food, this would be a good start point.
