Try Every Korean Restaurant in Ermita and Malate (9) (see also TEKREM)

Surveying all the Korean eateries, including those serving Korean-Chinese fare, located in the neighborhoods of Ermita and Malate, nearby work and home.  Minimum of 1 dish per place.  Currently 45 establishments.  Though anticipating that most of the places will be mediocre, I look forward to exploring more of my environment.

Sinsun Seolleong Tang is a Korean restaurant.  Specializes in beef-based soup dishes, particularly seollong tang.  Other than the name and the menu, nothing to suggest any official affiliation with the megachain in Korea.

On my first visit way back when, I found the soup itself to be just okay but felt that that the excellent kimchi more than compensated for it.  At some point, however, they switched kimchi suppliers, much for the worse.  And tonight, the soup also seemed to have tumbled a few notches down – the signage has changed, suggesting new ownership, perhaps new kitchen.
