Hangari is a soup spot that specializes in kalguksu, soup featuring hand-cut noodles, and a sign on the wall proudly proclaims that they use gluten in just about everything they make. It’s right next to Sun Nong Dan, so if you’re too hungry to wait in that line, go here instead. The noodles are so good they even stand out in the spicy seafood soup - which is loaded with crab, mussels, shrimp, and vegetables. If you’re looking for something lighter, or it’s 95 degrees out, the cold soup (milmyeon) with pork is also worth your time.
