Yeongyang Center is a restaurant in MyeongDong known for their crispy roast chicken and samgyetang (ginseng chicken soup). It opened in 1960 and it has been roasting chickens for over 50 years.

It is a very popular place for local and tourists for yummy chicken.

Kimchi radish and pickled radishes came to the table. A definite must when having chicken.

Tongdak Gui (Grilled chicken) is very crunchy on the outside and isn’t very oily at all. The meat is still very tender. So good!

Samgyetang (ginseng chicken soup) has a boiled chicken stuffed with rice and ginseng. This dish was boiling hot and very delicious. You can add a bit of salt to add more flavour. Yum!

The chicken was very tender! No complaints. The bones and meat just fall apart.

Overall, we had a great experience here. M and I shared the two dishes and we got incredibly full. So full that it was hard to walk after.
