In this hole-in-the-wall on the railroad tracks near Samgakji, central Seoul, you get two treats for the price of one: a bowl of freshly cooked kalguksu (knife-cut noodles), which you dip into a twin bowl of yukgaejang, a spicy soup made from vegetables and shredded beef, one of Korea’s crowning comfort foods. Chopstick skills are required and the eagle-eyed staff will offer you a bib if you look like you need it. Lines are long at peak hours - as they have been for 34 years!
