CHEONGSONG is famous for its chicken boiled in mineral water. The iron and carbon rich water removes chicken fat and makes the chicken meat light and easy to digest. To make it extra special, ginseng, hedysarum root, Chinese licorice, walnuts, jujubes, mung beans are added. When the chicken is fully cooked, it is served separately. And in the remaining soup, rice is added to make porridge. This porridge is said to be good for people suffering from gastro enteric problems and give energy. Unlike regular water, when the mineral water from this area is used for boiling chicken, the chicken turns bluish.
