Tail gomguk soup is a rejuvenating health food made by plucking a whole iron tail. It is an aphrodisiac that you will naturally seek when your body is weak or lacking in energy. When you eat the chewy tailbone meat along with the rich, white soup, it's a magical flavor that makes you feel energized. Today, let's take a look at the legendary Tail Gomtang Restaurant.
1. Steamed tail topped with boiled green onions, Euljiro âSunheung-jip (Sunheung-ok)â
It is a steamed tail specialty store located near Bangsan Market, and its signature menu is the âsteamed tail set meal,â which is made by putting plenty of green onions on top of large potatoes and meat. The characteristic is that green onions, which have a subtle sweetness, are added to add umami. The soft texture of the steamed tail, where the flesh comes off when you take just a few chopsticks, is excellent. If you order a set meal, the soup that is served separately includes finely chopped fresh kimchi and seaweed, season it, then roll it up and eat rice or somen, and that flavor is a delicacy. Note that adding green onions, potatoes, and noodles costs an additional 1,000 won and cannot be packaged.

2. 70 years of tradition, 'Buyeo House' in Yeongdeungpo
This specialty soup specialty store has a 70-year tradition and offers a variety of soup menus, such as tail gomguk soup and crucible soup. The feature is that the menu using imported products and the menu using Korean beef are separated separately. In addition to soup, steamed and beef menus are also available. The signature dish, âtail gomguk soup,â is made using only the tail, so the soup is clear and rich. If you want to enjoy the unique aroma and umami of Korean beef, I recommend ordering âKorean beef tail gomguk soup.â Other delicacies include âcrucible soup,â which has a rich broth unique to a crucible, and âsteamed tail,â which is steamed beef tail and topped with soy sauce.

â²Location: 24 Seonyu-dong 1-ro, Yeongdeungpo-gu, Seoul â²Business hours: 11:00-21:00 every day, open all year round â²Price range: Korean beef tail soup 25,000 won, steamed tail (small) 60,000 won â²Review (Alarmmon 1313): This restaurant is almost 70 years old. It was such an old restaurant that it was designated as a future heritage by Seoul City because of how long ago it was. I liked kimchi because it was a little different from the kimchi you eat at a restaurant because it just tasted like kimchi soaked at home. Tail gomguk soup is also delicious, but if you like the chewiness of tail meat, I recommend tail pork or steamed tail.
3. Savory oxtail in clear broth, 'Deokwon' in Yeongdeungpo
Dukwon's signature menu is âtail gomguk soup,â made by adding green onions sliced long by hand like a thread to a clear, clear gom-tang soup. The flavor of the meat that gradually comes up as you eat the soup with only the tail without any other parts is excellent. The meat, which has been cooked well by removing the oil from the tail by hand, also has an excellent texture with a chewy texture. The sauce made by adding plenty of minced garlic and chives to soy sauce and adding red pepper powder and sesame seeds is the point of Dukwon Gomguk soup, and if you eat it in the soup, you can enjoy a different flavor by combining the chives marinated in soy sauce with the soup.

â²Location: 6, Birdnaru-ro Gil, Yeongdeungpo-gu, Seoul â²Opening hours: Monday-Saturday 09:00 to 21:00, closed on Sundays â²Price: Tail Gomguk: 16,000 won, Jutomak 18,000 won, left unattended â²Review (Saudi Prince Shikigami): It's a place famous for its empty baths, but apparently most people are looking for Kola Gomtang more than a vacant bath that costs close to 40,000 won. I also ordered gomguk soup. A full-sized piece of tail meat comes out, showing off an appetizing visual, and it's fun to eat the meat attached to it. Unexpectedly, the soup is quite clear and calm, so it goes beyond alcohol to the point where you don't really need any other side dishes when you eat the meat properly.
4. Steamed tail and tail gomguk soup all at once, 'Wisteria House' in Sindaebang-dong
A steamed tail/gomguk soup specialty store that opened in 1975. The most popular menu item, âSteamed tail,â has tender lean meat without any residue. The tender tail meat is delicious even when eaten with just a little salt, but you can enjoy it even more if you dip it in soy sauce containing chives. Also, if you order food, the wisteria house offers an unlimited number of types of broth made from beef tail for 24 hours, and beef bone broth made from beef bones, ribs, legs, and crucibles. âCrucible beef,â which has an attractive light yet chewy texture, is also popular.

5. 'Eunho Diner, 'Namdaemun, a famous place famous for its 80-year tradition of gomguk soup
It is one of the most famous long-established stores that started on a stall in 1932 and came down for the third generation. The signature menu is âtail gomguk soup,â which is a savory yet rich soup. The slightly oily soup has a unique yet heavy flavor. The tail meat that is firmly attached has an excellent meat flavor that you can feel the more you chew. The point of the seasoning sauce that is eaten with tail meat is the leek, which contains the sauce. The fragrant chives add to the flavor of the tail meat. If you want to enjoy more lean meat, we recommend ordering a âskimmed tail.â
