Delicious lunch discovery in k-town

I have been eating lunch at Woorijip about twice a week for ages. (For those of you not familiar with the place, they have tons of takeout options, pre-packaged meals, individual containers of rices, vegs, tofu, meats etc. and also buffet type offerings, all very fresh) But until today, for some unknown reason, I have never had anything from the noodle counter in the back. WOw, I had the most delicious soup just now, it had mandoo (dumplings) in it, and sliced rice cakes and strands of egg and scallions. The broth was so good, I have a definite garlic aftertaste in my mouth. The dumplings were very nice and for the most part did not fall apart. At first I was disappointed that there were not noodles in it as well, but that would have been overkill. It came with a container of kimchee, and one of the bright yellow pickled radish thing. A pint for $6. I can't wait to try the other varieties. TOday's special was spicy beef soup with scallions. It was a nice shreddy-looking beef. There are seafood options, but I didn't want to smell up the office. How did I wait so long? THis is right up my alley. I may have to do this daily for a of my co-workers turned me on to it, she had this soup two days running...
