Sinchon Sujebi...mehTuesday, March 23, 2010
Behind Hyundai Department Store near Sinchon Station Exit 1 is this little handmade dumpling soup place. It's been around forever and the grandmothers make the dough by hand everyday. I saw them making the sujebi outside on top of the red bins. The one one mixed it and kneaded it until it was ready and then she went inside and dropped it in the soup.
It's got a very simple broth with bits of ground pork carrots and pumpkin. It was good, but...I think it was just sujebi. A reader of Seoul Eats told me this place was the best but I just thought it just was. Maybe I'm just not a sujebi person. The big thing for me was the broth. I didn't think it was very rich nor thick.
The good thing is that it is super cheap. 4,000 won for a humongous bowl is great, but I think for someone that is very hungry.
