korean food / seoul / 5 best places to eat chicken with a hot soup that soothes the stomach – 1978

“Chicken Alley” is located between Jongno 5-ga and 6-ga and Dongdaemun Market. Stores that have remained in place for over 30 years are gathered in Chicken Hanmari Alley. Here, you can find “one chicken,” where you put a big chicken in a big pot and cook green onions, potatoes, and mochi together.

The hot soup has a rich and deep flavor that is enough to soothe your stomach with just one bite. Each store has its own secret sauce, and you can enjoy different charms. In the movie “Himalaya,” which captures the love of mountaineers, a scene of Um Hong-gil actually eating at a regular restaurant appeared, and the chicken became even more famous. Here are 5 of the best chicken restaurants that will melt your body and mind when it's cold.

Opened in 1978, “Jinokhwa Halmae Wonjo Chicken Hanmari” was the first place to introduce a chicken menu. It's so popular that even foreigners line up to eat at mealtime. The signature menu “Chicken Han Mari” catches the eye with the unique visual of a potato stuck in the middle of the chicken. The rich soup made using broth made by putting hundreds of chickens in one go is excellent. The chicken uses only 35-day-old chicken and is boiled once to remove the fat and give it a fresh flavor. A tasty way to enjoy a chicken is written on the wall, and the sauce can be made by adding 2 dadegi, 1 soy sauce, 0.5 vinegar, and 2 drops of mustard. The sharp sauce containing red pepper seeds and the way to enjoy a cool version of kimchi in the soup are also popular. Please note that additional orders for Kalguksu sari are not possible after the first order.

“Chicken Hanmari Gamjatang” is located in the food alley of Sinsa Station. One wall inside the store is filled with guest books from customers who have been there, creating a nostalgic atmosphere. The signature menu is “Chicken Hanmari,” where fresh chicken is boiled and eaten in a broth made with 9 kinds of natural ingredients including herbal medicine. The characteristic of the deep umami broth is that it captures the chicken's fat and enhances its light flavor to the fullest. Mix the sauce in a ratio of 3 parts soy sauce, 1 mustard, and 1 vinegar. After enjoying the chicken, the tip is to finish with porridge. “Chicken doritang,” which combines plump chicken with a spicy sauce, and “Gamjatang,” which contains plenty of pork backbone and bean sprouts, are also popular snacks. It's open 24 hours a day on weekdays, so it's a great place to visit casually.

The quaint signboard in the chicken alley and the exterior of the building greet you with the “Wonha Mae Bae Dang Dang Chicken.” It became famous as a mountaineer Um Hong-gil's regular home along with famous media broadcasts. The signature menu is “Chicken Hanmari,” which combines chewy chicken with a mild flavor made from motherwort. The chicken, which contains moist broth, has an attractive texture that is soft and crunchy, down to the breast. There is also a hearty set menu where you can enjoy chicken, noodles, potatoes, mochi, and mushroom sari all at once. Chicken is often sold out for dinner on weekends, so I recommend checking the phone before visiting.

It's a place I definitely think of in the winter~ I never drank alcohol because I had to go on an expedition to Seoul to eat, but if I were in the neighborhood, I felt like soju would be very drunk.

“Gongneung-dong Chicken Hanmari” is located near Exit 4 of Taerung Station. The signature menu, “Chicken Hanmari,” uses only raw domestic chicken and boasts a tender meat quality. The rich yet refreshing soup made by putting green onions in a broth that has been carefully cured for 4 hours and simmered is impressive. Chives and cabbage mixed with mustard, soy sauce, and sauce add a crunchy texture and a refreshing aftertaste, so it's great to eat with them in the middle. Putting “kalguksusari” in the broth left over from eating meat and cooking it yourself is also popular. Depending on your preferences, you can add kimchi to make a cool soup, or you can also enjoy it as bibimbap noodles by rubbing it on seasoned cabbage. Note that bibimjang can be irritating depending on your taste.
