The Sansi Doseok Myeon and Dim-sum are prepared traditionally with Chinese flavors. It is a very famous place for having Chinese food.
There are rarely any times when the store is not fully occupied. Most of the times people book their advanced reservations to have a meal later at this store.
The most representative dish ordered here is the Doseok myeon. the most important thing about food of such high quality and taste is that it is not over-expensive. The doseok myeon menu costs 7000 won per plate which in my opinion is pretty fair. Considering the amount of time and input it takes to prepare this delicacy, it is a justified amount.
The other famous dishes of this store are the Shrimp dim sum and the juicy dumpling. The Shrimp dim sum is a mixture of shrimp and mushrooms although it is firm but still really juicy to eat.
The Juicy dumpling is full of soy sauce. The article skin is really thin and juicy. The pro-tip about eating these is to puncture them slightly and to remove the hot steam from the soy sauce inside. Then as the steam slowly blows away, you can sip the sauce and then enjoy the delicate dumpling.
The standout dish for me is the hot soupy noodles seasoned with coriander leaves. The flavor of these noodles reminded me of the Indian taste. The spices were making my lab mates and friends trouble to eat but I was really enjoying them. There were 2 distinct flavors of these as well. A red spicy noodle soup and a black pepper spicy noodle soup. Both of the were absolutely delicious.
The main attractive thing about cuisine here in Korea is that there are many accompaniment dishes to complement the main course. in this store, they have the stir-fried tomato eggs, fried eggplant tempura and the dumplings.
This was the first time I tried so many different kinds of dishes from the same cuisine kind and I was not disappointed at all. None of the food was tasteless or even smelt bad. There was a home-like aroma of the dishes and it made me happy. I highly recommend you guys to surely check it out sometime and enjoy the same experience or even better.
