I’m Just Here for the Food: Jangmo Jip


If you’re Korean, the phrase “chicken soup for the soul” does nothing for you. But talk about sullungtang, and you instantly recall the comfort that a hot bowl of beef soup, noodles, and thinly-sliced beef served with sea salt, green onion, and radish kimchi brings on a cold day.

The sullungtang at Jangmo Jip (which translates to “Mother-in-Law’s House,” by the way. HA!!) is tops, providing maximum flavor for maximum comfort.

It’s a simple establishment, and because their menu is so simple, you get your food almost before you even order it.

Get the traditional white noodles. They’re the best.

One of these days, I’m going to write a book. I’ll call it “Sullungtang for the Korean Seoul,” and it’ll be filled with pictures of sullungtang and kimchi from Jangmo Jip. Koreans will shed emotional tears over it; I guarantee.
