Imun Seolnongtang (이문설농탕), 1902-1907

Imun Seolnongtang is the oldest resutaurant in Seoul, though no one is sure of the exact date the restaurant first opened. The opening year is supposed to be either 1902, 1905 or 1907.

Originally located in what is now Gongpyeong-dong, even its name is steeped in history, with hints of a bygone era written throughout: “imun” comes from Imun-gol, the now-obsolete name of the restaurant’s first location, and “seolnongtang”, is an old variation of the word seolleongtang – the restaurant’s most famous dish.

Seolleongtang is a hearty Korean beef broth usually served with noodles and green onions. Those whose palates aren’t so adventurous will be happy to find seasoning is done at the table, so diners are left to their own devices when it comes to adding salt, ground black pepper, red pepper, minced garlic, or chopped spring onions.
