Sinseon Seolnongtang in Seoul

My craving for Seolleongtang (설렁탕) was really bad on a super cold day, and so I went to 신선설농탕 (Sinseon Seolnongtang) alone to have the seolleongtang. Sinseon Seolnongtang is a restaurant specializing in Seolnongtang (ox-bone soup) and open 24 hours a day. It is a good place to visit for a dinner with friends, late at night when everything else is closed. I really liked this place and it wasnt hard to find, and there is street parking which may be a little difficult but it was worth it.

The place was nicely designed, large and has good atmosphere. They keep it clean, and the service was quick and friendly.

Seolleongtang is a very common dish appreciated by Koreans. If you're craving seolleongtang (ox bone soup) you must come here! It can get quite busy here during the lunch or dinner but normally I have been seated right away. They also have a wonderful 두부야채 설렁탕 menu!

I ordered the Seolleongtang (ox bone soup). After I order I can kill some time while I am waiting for my food by preparing the kimchi for the table.

I got a small each 7,000 Won and this came with rice. The prices for the soups are good enough considering the huge portions. They give you salt, pepper, and green onion to add to it, so you can season it to taste. The soup is kind of bland for my tastes, but I loved it with a bit of pepper and salt. Seolleongtang is a Korean broth tang (soup) made by simmering ox bones for hours until it turns into a milky white broth. The longer the broth has to simmer, the better the broth tastes as the flavor is extracted from the bones.

The seolleongtang is extremely delicious, flavorful, relaxing, and comforting. The portions are plentiful, more than enough for one person, and the aroma is very rich and meaty.  I recommend adding kimchi to it to give it extra spice and flavor. The white broth is the star of the dish, packing a lot of beef flavor, it's very simple and mild especially compared to a lot of Korean food you might be used to, but feels very healthy.

I was craving dessert too, but I didnt know what I was looking for until I found sweet addiction! WOW!!! Ice cream is also served here! They provide you with variety of options that you can choose from as well at a reasonable price that you won't find that many places in town.

There are a lot of flavors of ice cream to choose from!

The flavors were all so good but I decided to go with the cookie sand because this is my favourite dessert ice cream.
The ice cream here is absolutely amazing and delicious! It's 2,000 Won for a cookie sand ice cream.
Chocolate are thick and you will endure any flavoured pastes with the vanilla cream.
