Seoul Kakdugi Restaurant

Where in Busan can you find the best Seolleongtang aka Ox Bone Soup? Seoul Kakdugi Restaurant (서울깍두기) has been around since the 1950’s serving up the delicious dish. The locals say this place is the best for getting Seolleongtang. It can’t be bad because that’s basically all they sell.

Kkakdugi (radish kimchi) and regular kimchi comes before the meal and the servers are diligent in refilling them up quickly.

Seolleongtang (9,000 won) is the ox bone soup with noodles,beef and rice. It is the most popular item on the menu and it is really good!

You just need to add your own salt to adjust the flavour. I added about a scoop and a half to get it to the right amount of tastiness.

Boiled Beef (40,000 won) is quite expensive. It’s like $40 CDN for a plate of meat. Pricey, but it was definitely interesting.The beef was delicious since it was cooked in the ox tail broth. This plate fed a table of 8, so you definitely want to share this with a large party.

The food here is pretty good. It’s nothing fancy, but it’s something yummy if you are in the Busan area. The location is also close to the Jagalchi Fish Market, so you can stroll around there after eating.
