Jungsik – Seoul

Jungsik in Seoul has landed on the number 10 spot in San Pellegrino’s Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list at the time I went there. I wanted to visit this place after I had tried the Jungsik outpost in New York. Both restaurants provides a great experience, I enjoyed the sea urchin dish in New York so much that I ordered the same thing again in Seoul. There is one dessert on the menu I still want to try, perhaps next time when I get the chance to visit again.

The Seoul outpost of Jungsik occupies one entire building in Cheongdam a upscale area within Gangnam. The first floor is a bar area that I would like to go to, but sadly was closed during lunch time.


The main dining hall is on the second floor. IMG_1629
