[Seoul] Baek nyeon Baekse Ginseng Chicken Soup 백년토종삼계탕 @ Hongdae

Last meal for our Seoul-full trip. This was a trip where towards the end of it, we stayed at different locations. There were 9-Bricks, ROinhome and an AirBnB in the mix. For lunch, we decided to try the ginseng chicken that received thumbs-up from Shermaine. And, it was just nearby 9-Bricks Hotel.

Wild Cultivated Ginseng Chicken Soup with Abalone @₩20,000

From the menu, there was a total of 6 different types of ginseng chicken soup available. We chose 3 types to share. On the table, one could take as much as kimchi radish cubes as one wishes.

But all eyes on the prize; nutritious ginseng chicken soup was all that we were here for.

Weather was cooling, so it was rather nice to have these hot piping pots served.

Ginseng Chicken Soup with Perilla Seeds @₩15,000

The one with perilla seeds had milky white broth and looked like it had lots of dregs floating. In actual fact, this broth tasted really good and those seemingly 'sediment' were perilla seeds. Perilla leaves we had eaten before, but perilla seeds were a first.

The baby chicken in each pot was lovely to eat. None of those tough meat nonsense. Here, each chicken were so tender yet retained its meaty flavour.

Ginseng Chicken Soup with Black Garlic @₩16,000

The odd one out in terms of broth flavour from all the pots that we ordered, was the Ginseng Chicken Soup with Black Garlic. It tasted like our home cooked chicken soup with garlic. Keke. Nevertheless, it was enjoyable and rather homely.

glutinous rice and one chunky ginseng in the chicken

The best part, is the glutinous rice in those chicken. Fully absorbing the richness of the flavours, the soft mushy rice was so good. Yummy!

Am liking this version more than Tosokchon.
