The weather is starting to cool and the leaves are beginning to fall.
It's a perfect time to explore new neighbourhood restaurants and one in particular that specializes in traditional Korean soups and stews.
"Soup season is here! Keep warm with Sagol-Manduguk — Beef bone soup with sliced rice cake and dumplings," the restaurant notes on Instagram.
For those looking for a hearty meal, Dookbaeki offers a number of soups and stews that blend traditional seasonings and vegetables with slow-cooked meats, such as pork and beef.
Another notable fact are the bowls the restaurant uses to keep food hot.
The bowls are made of a special clay material from loess, which is a yellowish sediment that when formed into clay and fired turns into stone bowls that are perfect for stews and soups because the stone retains the heat so the dish remains hot until you finish your meal.
The hours are:
Tuesday to Saturday: 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Sunday: 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
