Every day, the temperature exceeds 30 degrees, and the air is as humid as if it had entered a sauna. Even if it's hot in the summer in Korea, it's too hot. I try to avoid the heat by listening to a parasol and trying to stretch myself, but if I just stay outside for a while, I often quickly get sweaty. In order to prevent energy from weakening due to excessive sweating in the summer, our ancestors created a custom called âBok Dal Im.â Because of this custom of eating food that protects the body on sambok to replenish energy, the area in front of Samgyetang's house is always busy on lucky days. However, samgyetang is not the only food that replenishes energy. Today, the SNS Taste Appraisal Group will introduce bokdalim foods and restaurants highly recommended by social media users for the middle of summer.
An Anglo-American duck soup located in Gunja-dong, Gwangjin-gu, Seoul, where you can also enjoy the savory duck soup in Gwangjin-gu, Jeolla-do, in Seoul. When you enter the store, the walls are filled with pictures shown on TV and autographs left by celebrities who have visited this place. âDuck soup,â the signature dish of Anglo-American duck soup, is made with savory perilla seeds and boiled until thick and savory. If you eat one of these cutlery, it's a taste that anyone can admire. Another way to enjoy Anglo-American duck soup is to put fresh parsley in it, heat it slightly, then dip it in perilla paste. After eating all the duck soup, if you even eat fried rice full of perilla powder, it makes you feel like you've just finished getting well.

3. National health food, croaker restaurant âYudalsanâ
Croaker, which is considered the best sashimi and has the meaning of the nation's fish, is an aphrodisiac that has been the most popular summer food since the Joseon Dynasty. Sashimi is generally not enjoyed in summer, but croaker is one of the few fish that is in season in summer. Digestion and absorption are fast, and it has the effect of quickly restoring health, making it an ideal food for anyone of all ages to take care of themselves. Yudalsan, located near Gyodae Station, has various types of croaker dishes, from sashimi to soup and steamed fish. I recommend croaker sashimi, which is well-aged and has a chewy texture.
Not only the main dish but also the side dishes are clean and well-prepared, making it a great place for a family meal.

5. âNamsan Bok Jipâ, a pufferfish restaurant with over 30 years of tradition
In traditional Chinese medicine, pufferfish is considered a very good food to relieve fever and make up for lost energy due to weakness in the body. Because of this, it's also perfect for bokudal work. Namsan Bokjip, located in Mugyo-dong, is a pufferfish restaurant that has a tradition of over 30 years, and is a place where people are constantly taking steps to take care of themselves. Bok bulgogi, which is eaten by marinating pufferfish in a sweet and spicy red sauce and grilling it on a grill, is popular. It's chewy yet has a soft texture that seems to melt away after a few chews. In addition to yakiniku, you can enjoy a variety of dishes such as beef, grilled with salt, steamed meat, and geori.
