The rules of Han Bat are simple: bring cash and get the seolleongtang. The whole menu basically revolves around the milky white ox bone soup with glass noodles, and the only decision to be made is which cuts of beef you want. Our go-to is the ox tail—the meat is incredibly tender, with a light beef broth that can be seasoned to taste with salt and fresh green onions. Each spoonful of soothing soup is more effective than a Headspace meditation, and since this place is rarely packed, it’s easy to just walk in and grab a seat.
