Samgyetang or literally translates as “ginseng chicken soup” is one of the specialties in Hong Park Sa, an authentic Korean restaurant that is located in the Ampang. Normally, Koreans consume this traditional dish in the summer for its nutrients, which is to replenish the energy and excessive sweating during the hot summers.

Samgyetang or the Ginseng chicken soup (RM 25) was quite huge in portion and can be shared among 2. It is made with whole young chicken where the young chicken is stuffed with glutinous rice, young ginseng shoots, jujube (red dates) and other herbs; then boil in chicken broth and then served in hotpot.

The soup itself was bland. You could season it with the Korean sea salt provided based on your preference. That’s really thoughtful of them; some may love it saltier while the others may prefer a mild salty taste.

The meat turned out to be very soft and tender after boiling in the soup. Split the meat with spoon and chopstick, hidden within the chicken were the aromatic and sticky glutinous rice.

The pork slices were not marinated beforehand; it was good to have it alone with the lettuce leaves. However, for extra kick, you could just spread in a bit of sauce, sandwich it with garlic and kimchi and some stir-fried leeks and bean sprouts. Then Wrap it up and stuff the whole thing into your mouth. Munch, munch, munch… ♥
