The filling contains meat, kimchi, etc., and it's delicious. The rice cake dumpling soup costs 10,000 won, but I think 8,000 won would be appropriate. For that reason, there are more diners than diners. Complete with snacks such as a fishbowl tray, beef steak, and assorted rice crackers! I think it would be nice to pay more attention to gyoza.
