The Riverside Experience

Indulge in the revitalizing and nutritional benefits of our signature dish, the “Neungi Baeksuk” (능이백숙). This hearty broth is simmered to perfection with native chicken and plentiful pine mushrooms, providing a boost of energy.

Complement your meal with our selection of seasonal wild greens such as “chamnamul” (참나물), “gomchwi” (곰취), and others. These fresh accompaniments not only balance out the heat during summer but also provide a unique flavor profile that is both earthy and refreshing.
