When we're satisfied with the food or service, we recommend a place we've visited to someone. Word of mouth went round and round, and after quietly hearing rumors from local people that it was delicious little by little, I saw a long line lined up before I knew it You can do it. In Seoul, there are restaurants bustling with people that started out as a rumor that they were delicious without a sign. From sundae soup that fills your heart with just one bowl to hot chicken feet that relieve stress! Here are 5 of the best restaurants without a signature that competes only on taste.
1. âSundae Gukjipâ in Sinseol-dong, a hearty heart that fills the heart

âSundae Gukjipâ is located near Exit 4 of Sinseoldong Station. The store, which shows signs of many years, exudes a nostalgic atmosphere. If you order sundae soup, head meat is served as a service. The signature menu, âsundae soup,â is characterized by not containing sundae, but only pork parts. It is served in a hearty way, and each grain of rice is soaked in liver and remains warm during the meal. It is served with shrimp sauce, so it's a good idea to taste the soup before seasoning. Please note that early finishing may occur when materials are exhausted.

â² Review (Shikigin Bubble Ame): Good thing I think so. Tohae-style sundae gukbap. It comes out of a bunch of sesame seeds and tadam. I skipped it all out and enjoyed the soup in a light style. If you like tadegi, I think it would be nice to unwind them all and have a great time. The gukbap here tastes like you won't get tired of eating it every day. I recommend it.
