Tosokchon Samgyetang
“Samgyetang,” ginseng chicken soup, is a Korean specialty that's served with a whole, stuffed young chicken in each bowl. Prepared hot and steaming, it is often consumed in the summer to help balance the body temperature with the weather outside. Tosokchon Samgyetang has been serving this delicacy since 1983 from a large, traditional “hanok” building. The restaurant's nourishing recipe uses a sophisticated stuffing made from ginseng, pumpkin seeds, walnuts, pine nuts, sunflower seeds, jujube fruit, gingko, garlic, and sesame seeds. It also prepares a version using rare, black poultry with a tender flesh that was once only reserved for royalty. Queues run long but usually move quickly, the best times to go are in the early to mid afternoon after the lunch crowd has passed.
