MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

The restaurant’s clean white signage says it all. Chef Park Chan-il’s dwaeji-gukbap or pork and rice soup looks and tastes unadulterated. Prepared simply by boiling black pork ham and Duroc pork shoulder cuts, the clear broth is fragrant and profoundly flavorful. Although ‘gukbap’ is commonly served with rice already mixed into the hot soup, Park serves the two separately, to preserve the flavor of freshly steamed rice. The heaping of chopped chives added to the soup just before it is served renders the broth wonderfully aromatic.
