“Duck Hot Pot (Small Cauldron): 10,000 KRW”

During this visit, I came to have a simple lunch. Therefore, I opted for the menu item “Duck Hot Pot,” which allows for a relatively simple meal without a significant financial burden, priced at 10,000 KRW. Considering that duck is included in the dish, the price is quite reasonable.

After placing the order, a simple side dish is provided. This includes kimchi, fresh kimchi, and bean sprout salad, among others. Then, after a short while, the main dish arrives.

The dish, with plenty of garlic and decorated with mushrooms, is quite impressive. Based on appearance alone, it strongly resembles a cauldron of spicy stew, and in terms of taste, it’s quite similar as well. The inclusion of duck in the hearty broth sets it apart.

Thanks to this meal, I was able to satisfy my hunger, and afterwards, I felt a surge of energy.
