Moraenae Seollongtang (Seoul)

Moraenae-gil, the Northern side of Hongjecheon, is lined with meat restaurants because Moraenae Market used to be the main spot for meat (and even cattle trading, as you can see on early 1900s pictures). Nowadays, many cabbies stop by because the food is good, not as expensive as in fancy restaurants, and parking is easy.

If you want seollongtang and more original specialities using beef parts ranging from head to tail, Moraenae Seollongtang is a sure bet. Not the oldest institution around, but already reaching its first quarter of century.

For the ox soup, you don't even have to bother mixing the rice, it's directly served in the soup. All you have to do is season it the way you like it. And of course wolf it down.
