Chueotang: mudfish soup

When I think of Chueotang, I think of two things: Ahjeossi (아저씨; men over 40s, based on my standard) and health food. Ahjeossis love to eat this soup and it gives you so much energy. It is made from mudfish. Let’s see what it looks like πŸ™‚

I liked the side dishes here. Some restaurants buy Kimchi which doesn’t taste good, but I could taste that their Kimchi was made here and it was so fresh. Even by only eating side dishes, I felt like I was eating healthy food.

Here is Chueotang. What I tried had grounded mudfish, different types of vegetables, and abalones. (Usually abalones are not in the soup but what I ordered was Abalone Chueotang.) It is medium-thick, meaning it’s not too watery and not too thick because of the grounded mudfish.

Chueotang itself is considered a health food… and with abalones? I would say that it is a super food. Both are considered energy food in Korea. It is not that spicy. You might think that it tastes weird at first. I understand. It sounds weird too haha. But give it a try πŸ™‚

It depends on the restaurants, but where I went prepared a nice Dolsot bap (돌μ†₯λ°₯; hot pot rice). It tastes better than just normal rice and you can eat Nurongjitang (λˆ„λ‘±μ§€νƒ•; scorched rice soup). You scoop the rice into another bowl and pour water into the hot pot. Once you finish the rice, the Nurungjitang will be cooked and you can enjoy it πŸ™‚

Bossam (boiled pork meat) with Kimchi is a plus. Isn’t it a nice meal?

    Mud soup is my favorite Korean soup. It not only tastes good, but also is beneficial for staying healthy. They serve it with abalone. How could it be more luxurious and energetic! I will never miss it as an Ansan resident.

    How I get to yum-korea? I’ve come here via 냠냠이 at first. One day, I really wanted to have grilled duck with my family in Ansan. So I searched the Internet to find a well-known restaurant. Of numerous links, I found your posting about ꡬ곑산μž₯ in Korean version. I was impressed with your saying that you have been a regular customer more than twenty years. – this makes me somewhat expected you live in Ansan- and then I surfed your blog for a while and watched your video. After all, I’ve become your follower:) Someday if I encounter you in somewhere in Ansan, I will say “hello Jina”, then don’t be startled. Have a nice weekend
