Jeju Samgyetang (Ginseng Chicken Soup)

Happy Chinese New Year! Not blogging a post about new year celebration as this year I'm down with flu and cough. Turn into having a sexy duckie voice this year :-( Haiz...the weather is scorching hot this few days...

Anyway, will wan post about Jeju Samgyetang that I had...since now I'm sick..I shud recommend ppl to take care of their heath with this...haha. Samgyetang in Korean, literally translates as "Ginseng Chicken Soup" in English has been a popular Korean food for visitors. In Cantonese it translates as "Yun Sum Gai Tong", in which this soup is believed can prevent illness and provide nourishing to those with weak organs.

My tour in Jeju includes a meal of Samgyetang at 好宫参鸡汤 (In English google translation is Good Palace Samgyetang, or "Hao Gong Chicken Ginseng Restaurant)

Environment in the restaurant
Inside the soup, there's also one jujube (or what Chinese typically called red date). According to my tour guide, Chinese likes take the red dates in the chicken soup coz its v sweet but Korean believed that the red dates should not be eaten as it absorb all the chicken's toxic. Which one you all believed?
A whole chicken of ginseng soup and with sticky rice at the bottom..very big bowl and filling! It cost about KRW 22,000 (~RM62 per bowl)
They also have noodles for you to eat with the ginseng soup..and some side dishes as well. I gave boyfie my portion of noodles...the soup and rice is filling enuf
