Hwangsaengga Kalguksu (formerly 'Bukchon Kalguksu’) is one of the most popular restaurants on Samcheongdong-gil. The street in front of the restaurant is always crowded with cars and there are almost always people lined up outside the restaurant. The main dish is Kalguksu (noodle soup) with rich, mild broth made from ox bone. Homemade ‘wang mando’ (king-sized dumpling) is another specialty and you can even see workers making them at the entrance of the restaurant. Other dishes such as modeumjeon (assorted pan-fried delicacies) and bossam (vegetable wraps with pork) are also available.
