What to eat in Seoul: 닭도리탕 / 닭볶음탕 (dak-bokkeum-tang), South Korean Cuisine.


We were at Sinsadong during lunch hour and walked past this traditional Korean restaurant that’s open for 24 hours a day, and it looked like there were a lot of locals enjoying their meals so we decided to have our late lunch at this place.

Turns out the 닭도리탕 (spicy braised chicken) was great and the restaurant likely got popular after a Korean boy band MXM introduced it to their fans. The stir fried rice at the table beside us smelled really good, and it’s a pity we were to full for that.

P.S.: 닭도리탕 and 닭볶음탕 are the same thing.
