Jinjuhoegwan (진주회관) restaurant is one of the most famous restaurants in Seoul that serve kongguksu (콩국수), which is a cold soybean soup with noodles. This restaurant has been open for 40 years and it was certified by Seoul Metropolitan Government as Seoul Future Heritage. Also, previous president of Korea ate in this restaurant.
This cold noodle soup is a perfect meal for hot summer days. It is also very healthy. In some restaurants the soups is served with ice. However, in Jinjuhoegwan they don´t serve it with ice because the soup will lose the taste when the ice melts. The texture is creamy and the tastes like a mix of soy milk and nuts (vegan friendly).
It is also a perfect combination together with kimchi.
The price for is 10,000₩ per person, which in my opinion is a little bit overpriced. However, the taste is really good and the portion is quite big. The soups consistency is quite dense and you will be full for sure.
