Baengnyeon Tojong Samgyetang is a traditional restaurant that specializes in samgyetang (ginseng chicken soup), and is located at the entrance to Bukchon Hanok Village in Seoul’s Jongno-gu district. Its hanok-style architecture is equipped with seating for 100 on the first floor, 40 on the second floor, and garden seating for 60 people. Baengnyeon Tojong Samgyetang only serves naturally raised chicken, and uses about 40 ingredients in the samgyetang, including ginseng, ginkgo, jujube, glutinous rice, fruit sauce, and others. Its soups are simmered for a long period to bring out more of the natural flavors and minimize the fat content, giving it a superb light and clean taste. Also, all ingredients used are grown or raised domestically.
