The southwestern city of Jeonju is known to have the best food in all of South Korea. One of its most famous dishes is kongnamul gukbap, a bean sprout soup.
Hyundai-ok is one of the more popular restaurants that serves this local specialty.
It comes in a stone bowl and fizzes with a curative bean sprout fog as it is placed upon your table. In a small metal bowl next to the soup are two eggs, just ever so slightly cooked.
On a wooden condiment platter, there is a small dish of tiny shrimp, some cabbage kimchi and a bowl of salty fermented octopus.
Travelers suffering from a hangover may want to visit for breakfast -- kongnamul gukbap is celebrated for its restorative properties.
