The menu is only in Korean and Chinese, probably the target customer are Chinese who love shell food so much compare with western. The major foods on the menu are the live seafood hot pot in small, medium and large, size relating to how many are in your party and abalone slices.
The set comes with a pack of noodles with some vegetables but you still can add on rice or noodles for a little extra. But we advise you see on the portion first before add on any side.

Jeju Must Eat: Samseonghyeol Haemultang Seafood Hot Pot
Our bowl of haemultang came to us very quickly and we were so amazed and shocked when the food served. It looked grand with a mountain of shellfish, abalone, scallops, and crabs with an octopus squirming on top and a large portion of bean shoots at the bottom.
The portion is so huge even for the smallest pot. It probably can cater for 4 people for the small one. The seafood hot pot is cooked in front of you and we felt a little cruel while waiting.
The live octopus and abalone were still alive and moving, still tried its best to wriggle out from the heated pot.
The staffs were very attentive, occasionally came to take care of our hot pot to make sure the food was well cooked. They were helping to get rid of the shells, removed the inedible parts, cutting up the octopus and abalone into pieces so it would cook quicker.
The soup was slightly on the bland side, but become very mouth-watering after the seafood cooked through. It won’t be very spicy with the sweetness of vegetables and seafood. Probably a little spicier will even better.
Add Noodles At The End
Be sure don’t drink too much on the soup, a pack of instant noodles and some greens which come together with the set will be added at the end.
The noodles will absorb the essence of seafood and become super delicious seafood noodle. It was an incredible way to end the meal. We try our best but it was too full and can’t finish the food. If seafood is not your thing, I don’t recommend trying this restaurant.
For seafood lovers, I am sure you will fall in love with their seafood hot pot. It’s cheap and delicious for such a huge bowl of fresh seafood.
