It's open til 6AM (or so) which is a good thing. After going out all night in Hongdae this is a good place to get some kamja-tang--literally means potato soup would be more aptly named 되지/dwei-ji (pig) soup because it is made of pig back (tastes much better than it sounds) and a couple of small potatoes.

I've seen guys downing bottle after bottle soju at 6AM here..can you say 'alcoholic'? Anyhoo, you don't need to be a boozer to appreciate this grub in your gut in the morning (or evening...never tried that, actually).

Favorite Dish: Kamja-tang, that's all I've ever had here.

Address: Hogndae main the parking lot.
Price Comparison: about average
Directions: Take a subway and walk/cab it to near Hong-ik University (Hongdae Station, line 2 is good). Ask the locals for directions to Luxury's just down the road from there.
Price: less than US$10
