korean food / seoul / The Crown Prince of the Freshwater Fish World, 5 Best Megimaeuntang Restaurants in Seoul – 2852

Among freshwater fish, the catfish has the best flavor, and is called the “prince.” It was also a precious ingredient used by kings during the Joseon Dynasty. The chewy, soft-fleshed catfish is rich in vitamins, potassium, phosphorus, and iron, and has an excellent rejuvenating effect. Let's take a look at places where you can enjoy a hearty meal by cooking it spicy and spicy.

A restaurant at Mukgol Station that sells only one type of megi-maeuntang. There are many long-time regulars in Mukdong, which started business in 1978, so it's always crowded no matter when you visit. The catfish maiguntang is served in a large pot with plenty of catfish and red spicy soup stock and topped with plenty of buttercups and mushrooms. It's important for freshwater catfish to catch the unique smell of soil, but you can't feel the smell at all here.

After taking a dead buttercup and eating it, after eating the chewy homemade rice, the catfish cooks softly and is in a good condition to taste. It's also nice to have plenty of people who can add buttercup and homemade rice for free.

Chuertang and catfish maeuntang specialty stores that have been operating for the second generation in Koshi Village, Sillim-dong. You can add freshwater crab or freshwater shrimp when ordering catfish soup, so you can enjoy whatever you like. The faint scent of herbal medicine in the soup makes me feel like eating health food. If the soup is left over, you can add somen and rice, boil it like porridge, and enjoy it as a porridge.
