Taken at: Tosokchon in Seoul, South Korea

One of the things you have to try in Korea is samgyetang (삼계탕). It is literally ginseng (인삼) chicken (계) soup (탕). It is usually eaten by Koreans during summer months to help relieve the heat. It is perfectly good for cold weather too because of the soup.

We arrived with a long line out front. However, don’t fret, the line moves just fine. The real challenge, for those who aren’t used to it, is the Japanese style of dining. The tables and chairs are reserved for big groups.

Service is fast and the food delicious. I have not tasted this one before but from my initial reaction, I needed more salt for taste. The rice inside the chicken is sumptuous and perfectly captured the ginseng, jujube, and garlic taste.
