A meal at Han Bat Sul Lung Tang happens at warp speed. Before you even put your jacket on the back of your chair, a waitress will ask you what you want - an easy choice considering there’s only two things on the menu and you’re getting the sul lung tang (ox bone soup). Within a few minutes, a steaming bowl of cloudy white soup arrives at the table, filled with a protein of your choice (we usually go for the brisket), followed closely by the check. Don’t worry, your meal is not over. Now comes the part where you take the soup and mix in all the salt, pepper, green onions, and kimchi radishes sitting on the table, until you get the soup tasting exactly how you want it.
