Have you ever tried Korean ginseng chicken soup (삼계탕)? Did you know this chicken soup is No.1 most popular summer food in Korea? Today, in episode 4 of Food Hunting (一起觅食吧), Musichef TJ will take you to one of MUST TRY restaurants when you visit Korea! Tosokchon （토속촌/土俗村） – the best ginseng chicken soup restaurant in Seoul beloved by both Koreans and tourists alike!
Hello everyone! First of all, I want to apologize for the lack of posting, a lot of things happened in the last 3 weeks! One of my dreams may come true very soon! I will share with you some exciting news and more details in the next post but for now before it gets too late, let me share with you my 4th Food Hunting in Seoul video – the best Korean Ginseng Chicken Soup (samgyetang)!
omg, look at those Korean style roast chickens, my mouth is watering as I write my blog post
Here is the full video->
also on youtube – (search for Food Hunting in Seoul)
1. The use of quality ingredients really makes a noticeable difference, their chicken soup has depth of complexity and flavors that many other samgyetang places don’t have. The use of many grains and their secret ingredients result in a very rich and thick soup!
2. Their original chicken soup did live up to their fame but their roast chicken was very disappointing
3．I haven’t tried it myself but a few of my friends told me their scallion pancake is also great, order one to share and let me know what you think 🙂
Go here before 11:30am or between 2-4:30 pm to avoid 1+hr line! Take a walk around Gyungbok palace first then come here after 2pm 🙂
After a few days of continuous video shooting in the cold, Kayla and I caught a cold. So we decided to drink Samgyetang hoping the heat from the ginseng chicken soup will make us feel better…. and it really did make us feel whole a lot better! I guess the principle of traditional Korean medicine ‘Use heat to cure heat’ （一热治热）was right, this is also the reason why Samgyetang is number one summer food in Korea! 🙂 That night after finishing all our work, we visited a Korean style jjimjilbang (traditional Korean spa) to fully recover from our cold, it worked like a wonder! Next time, when you feel like you are about catch a cold, try a bowl of hot and nutritious Korean ginseng chicken soup then head over to Korean spa to sweat it out!
the best way to relax – just a few minutes inside heated salt room and you will come out like a baked potato 😛

Out of all the Samgyetang places I tried in Beijing, I thought it was closest to Tosokchon chicken soup. I had it about a year ago, not sure about the taste now
Mapu BBQ 麻浦烧烤店
If you like your Ginseng chicken soup bit garlicky, this place’s chicken soup is pretty decent
Heard about this place a few times but haven’t been, Korean ginseng chicken soup specialty restaurant in Wangjing and Wudaokou area
