Baek Nyeon Baekse Ginseng Chicken Soup / Baengnyeon Samgyetang / 백년토종삼계탕 is a traditional Korean casual eatery and restaurant, specialising in variations of Samgyetang / Ginseng Chicken Soup. We discovered this place unintentionally, after coming from the hospital due to a medical emergency, we asked our owner-host of the place we were staying at for a recommendation. She brought us to this place, which is very popular with locals. It's conveniently located, just a 5 minutes walk from Hongik University subway station exit 9, on the outskirts of the Hongdae area.

Ambience at Baek Nyeon Baekse Ginseng Chicken Soup / Baengnyeon Samgyetang / 백년토종삼계탕 is styled to resemble traditional Korean guest houses, brightly lit with colours of white, wood, and stone. The sturdy wooden furniture is neatly lined within the spacious and clean place, while menu pictures act as decor. A center showpiece of neon blue lights, faux greenery, and metallic chicken / rooster statuettes draws the eye. Generally, a comfortable and relaxing place.

Service at Baek Nyeon Baekse Ginseng Chicken Soup / Baengnyeon Samgyetang / 백년토종삼계탕 is good. Staff can converse in simple English, and the menu has helpful English descriptions. Guests are quickly seated, and orders are fulfilled relatively quickly, even during peak periods. I observe quite a lot of customers order take away too, and the phone seems to ring continuously. Staff are courteous and welcoming, making sure diners are comfortable, and they efficiently clear away empty / dirty tables when diners leave.

Food at Baek Nyeon Baekse Ginseng Chicken Soup / Baengnyeon Samgyetang / 백년토종삼계탕 is focused on variations of the classic Korean Samgyetang / Ginseng Chicken Soup. Only naturally raised spring chickens are used, and their secret recipe soup / broth features up to 40 ingredients! Consistently well executed and delicious. Portions are large, suitable for sharing, though I observe most Koreans finish an entire bowl on their own. Prices are reasonable for the good quality, budget about KRW ₩11000 / SGD $14 per person for a meal here.

The Jeonbok Samgyetang / Wild Cultivated Ginseng Chicken Soup With Abalone (KRW ₩20000 / SGD $25) is really luxurious. Bold herbal notes in the robust soup / broth, the tender moist chicken meat which comes easily off the bone, and has a herbal sweet flavour. The abalone lends a chewy smooth texture and a sweet briny flavour, while the stringy herb nest looks so attractive.
