Korean goat soup

I went to the restaurant at 77-08 Woodside avenue for goat soup.
They have a Grand Opening sign outside though it seems like it isn't a new restaurant. Maybe a RE grand opening.
A very spare dining room, with barbecue tables along ones side and regular tables on the other.
They offer delivery.
In any case they do have the goat soup that I remember from Go Hyang Jip (sadly closed) that I was asking about a couple of weeks ago (thank you joe macbu).
The panchan were not the best, I can't say for sure, but I thought maybe they were not particularly fresh. I was there at around noon on saturday. They did have one that I love a warm fish in red sauce (possibly some kind of mackeral), also hard boiled egg in soy sauce, mung bean sprouts, eggplant (not cooked enough for my liking), kimchee (very fermented tasting and not very spicy) waterspinach with sesame. They weren't bad, just a little tired.
The rice was made in a rice cooker, not cooked in the stone bowls. I love the flavor of the rice cooked in the stone bowls.
We had seafood pancake: mediocre really. a little undercooked and flabby, and not quite enough greens.
Goat soup: Bo Yang Tang on the menu: boiled goat stew in hot and spicy sauce. it was good. and retained alot of goaty flavor both in the soup and the meat, which was uite tender (more so than at Go Hyang Jip actually). But you didn't get your own bowl of dipping sauce to dip your goat pieces in. There was a good amount of garlic, sesame and shiso seeds floating in the broth, but i missed the added value of control. I liked the broth, but when I reheated the leftovers I thought perhaps it was made with cubed boullion, it did gel nicely in the fridge though. Not quite as many greens and no mushrooms. All in all though I am thrilled that the soup is not as rare as i thought. I will go back to try again.
They do have alot of other soups and stews on the menu that sound intriguing.
