Walking through Yeonsan intersection, you’ll come across a restaurant with a beautiful green garden, a perfect setting before a fine meal.
At Jinmiwon, the chicken is tender, chewy and makes full use of all the delicious ingredients that go into the soup.
The restaurant also roasts its own salt on the premises with healthy ingredients and then serves it to you for you to dip the chicken into. This makes the meat even more flavorful.
In addition to the chicken, the broth is what really makes samgyetang shine. It contains a wide assortment of flavors that combine to make samgeytang something to look forward to, even if it isn’t the middle of boknal. The boiling soup also serves the purpose of helping to tenderize the chicken, which is why the meat falls off the bones so effortlessly.
Samgyetang can be enjoyed with sides of kimchi, kkakdugi (cubed radish kimchi), raw cucumber and chill peppers served on the side. Kimchi, in particular, serves as a perfect companion to the soup since it is cold and spicy, while samgyetang is served hot and mild.
Jinmiwon serves samgyetang exclusively for 14,000 won with a bottle of homemade ginseng wine per table. The wine is not automatically served, so you will need to inform the staff that you want it. You will then get the wine as part of your meal.
If you want more wine after that, then ordering extra will run you 2,000 won per bottle.
