“같은 건물 지하에 위치한 스테이크 전문점. 약간은 어두운 조명이 분위기 내기에 딱 좋은 장소. 스테이크의 맛은 말할것 없지만 저의 추천 메뉴는 '클래식 콥 샐러드' 진짜 예술!”

“There's something special about old traditions, and even more so when they're maintained with sincerity. Step into Hadongkwan, where you can taste and see that special something. Initially located on a back alley near Cheonggye Stream 70 years ago, the original restaurant was demolished during a period of redevelopment. But the owner kept the original wooden doors and wooden tables and continues to use them in his relocated Myeongdong location. He made this gensture to console long-time customers who bemoaned the loss of a landmark. Their signature dish is gomtang (simmered beef soup with rice), a comforting meal one tends to crave when feeling exhausted, physically or mentally. A plentiful amount of rice and pieces of beef with soup made from hanwoo (Korean beef) stock are served in traditional Korean bronzeware bowls. We suggest adding a handful of minced green onions to your soup. Before you gulp down everything, don’t forget to ask for "ggak-guk." At Hadongkwan, ggak-guk is a nickname for the juice from ggakdugi (diced radish kimchi). The piquant and sour flavors of ggak-guk add new depths to your gomtang. Hadongkwan normally runs out of ingredients by 4:30pm, so remember to stop by early get your fill of this savory, ”

“Korean hanwoo beef restaurant and there are many branches in everywhere. But they don't play with beef. If you want to try Korean BBQ, try this quality beef with good marbling. Do not overcook when you eat and don't miss fried rice when you finish your meal. ”
