During lunch hours, The Zhangshifu Shenjitang restaurant is swamped. Everyone orders Samgyetang, even though this restaurant does serve many varieties of chicken soup. esides plain Samgyetang, there are other flavors, including tiger’s claw bark, eel, black sesame, perilla powder, antler velvet, shi quan, cortex acanthopanax, abalone, and sea cucumber. A bowl of nutritious Samgyetang warms you up and is fresh and appetizing. The chicken appears to be plainly cooked, but it has been filled with sticky rice. The rice absorbs the essence of the added ginseng, dates, and ginko, and tastes smooth and glutinous. The chicken is also tender and delicious.
Besides Samgyetang, the restaurant also serves grilled gizzards, grilled cheese and chicken cutlets, and other chicken dishes. Among them, I strongly recommend their grilled Dak Galbi. The Dak Galbi sizzles on a large and heavy iron plate. Once it is put on your table, the garlic fragrance will waft up to your nose. On the plate, there is a heap of ingredients like chicken pieces, Tteok (Rice cake), cabbage, onions, sweet potatoes, carrots, and perilla leaves. Just a glance at this dish can whet your appetite. Several dishes of their mouth-watering Kimchi are also served.
