In the 1950s, when the Korean War ended, it was warm-hearted people who revealed the desolate society right after the war. Grandma Nam, who was doing business in Namdaemun, used to provide free meals to the unemployed here. The origin of this place's âmixed stewâ is that over time, those customers put the ingredients they bought as a sign of gratitude, boiled them in one pot and started selling them. After that, it went from Namdaemun to Chungjeong-ro and is now located in Myeong-dong, where the management philosophy of âlet's live by givingâ has continued for the third generation.
