Yong Geum Ok (용금옥), 1932

Yong Geum Ok is known as one of the best chueotang (mudfish soup) place in Seoul. Opened in 1932, in the heart of what was downtown Seoul, Yong Geum Ok continues to serve up their own special version of chueotang, which three generations of chueotang masters have spent almost a century perfecting. Chueotang is a soup made from ground freshwater mudfish, cooked with a variety of vegetables, soy bean paste, red pepper paste and ash seed powder. The restaurant serves their mudfish soup with noodles. The restaurant’s location makes it a must-do on Seoul’s tourist circuit; situated near Cheonggyecheon stream, it’s in prime position to round out a sightseeing adventure in Seoul with a hot bowl of chueotang. The perfect blend of Seoul’s past and present.
