The Korean typical meal is a bowl of steamed rice and several side dishes. It is nutritiously well-balanced meal with not too much seasoning. The Insa-dong alleys have many Korean table d’hote restaurants but their prices are rather expensive. Still some of them serve abundant side dishes like jeon pancakes; tteokgalbi grilled patties of short rib meat; bossam boiled pork wrapped in greens; gejang seasoned raw crab; seasoned mountain herbs; baked yellow corbina; stew, and more at affordable prices. A good example is Sogeum Hanjeongsik restaurant. Its basic table d’hote is KRW10,000 and lunch special that is served until 2pm is KRW6,000.
