Keumsan Samgyetang
131 W. Central Blvd
Palisades Park, NJ 07650 (across from the Shop Rite plaza)

Web Site:

Palisades Park is known for its Korean food. We have so many Korean restaurants in this town that some have even specialized themselves for specific kinds of dishes. A new restaurant which recently opened up near the Shop Rite in Palisades Park is Keumsan, which is actually a chain restaurant from Korea that specializes in a dish known as Samgyetang (SAM-GI-YEH-TANG) which is a special Chicken Soup flavored with Ginseng.  They also have another soup called Goditang (GO-DEE-TANG) which is a broth with Marsh Snails in it. Yum!
