I set out in search of a renowned restaurant for fiery Yukgaejang. Coming here quenches your thirst for spicy red broth. Yukgaejang is the star of the show. I had it as Yuk-Ramyun, with noodles. Spicy is just the baseline. The flavor is profoundly rich. A single bowl can revitalize you. Initially, don’t mix the rice; just enjoy the taste of Yukgaejang. Then, mix in the rice. The rice soaks up the broth, creating a different flavor profile. Here, they don’t precook the ingredients. It’s not the heavy Yukgaejang that comes from boiling for a long time. Each serving is cooked individually in a pot. The craftsmanship is evident, worthy of a recipe passed down through three generations. Itโ€™s not overly thick, but clear. The broth is deeper than expected, with a hint of tanginess. No unpleasant salty taste. The seasoning is just right, and the umami is out of this world. The vegetables have a live, crunchy texture. The vegetables are not overly wilted. There’s also plenty of meat.

This place is near Mangwon Station, on the way to Mangwon Market. The exterior is modest. It looks a bit run-down but has the air of a hidden master residing there. It exudes a serious aura. Additionally, they sell keychains at Yukjang, with all proceeds donated to children in foster care.
