68. Doma Seolleongtang, Dallas
If you’re craving traditional Korean soups, look no further than this Dallas eatery. Its compact menu features soup “entrees” chockful of ingredients such as ox knee, oxtail, and beef cheek. Their namesake dish, seolleongtang, is a milky beef soup made from ox leg bones. It takes hours to make properly, creating a filling, creamy broth that serves as the base of several other dishes, like Chadol Shulung Tang (ox bone soup with beef brisket). It’s one of the best places to find authentic Korean cuisine without leaving Texas.
What they’re known for: Go all-in with the Seok Uh Sulung Tang, an ox-bone broth with mixed meat, or try the Yuk Gae Bap with beef brisket and cabbage. The Tong Do Ga Ni Tang (ox knee soup) has a rich, delicious flavor, according to fans.
Yelpers say: “As someone who has traveled extensively and lived in Seoul, this is the real deal. The [soups] definitely tasted like they were made from scratch. Deep umami and rich broth. If you’re looking for legitimate Korean soup in Dallas, look no further.” —Michael Z.
