Visited Tosokchon again when we returned to Seoul. The portion of the chicken soup seems to have been reduced. Flavours are still there and it still felt nourishing but it seemed that the bowls which used to be full of bubbling soup was now reduced to less than 2/3 of the bowls. Service was also a bit slow. Ginseng pieces were quite generous though.

Queue was long since it’s a tourist must eat restaurant. But they manage to get us a seat within 15mins when there is 10-15people before us. Worth to try their soup. One of the best ginseng chicken soup I had in my life. Haha

I have to eat their ginseng chicken on each and every trip to Seoul. Very nice and yummy. Try to go before lunch time and you won't have to queue.

We arrived around 12noon and there was a line but in less than 30mins we were already seated. Our food arrived fast (about 5 mins) and the menu has instructions on how to eat the samgyetang. The food was bland but salt and pepper are provided to adjust the taste depending on your liking. The price is definitely up there compared to how much other restaurants are charging the customers.
