Where to Eat in Seoul?

If you are in Seoul there is NO way you are going to be hungry, food can be found everywhere!, from a Fancy Restaurant, to Street stalls to a MiniMarket where you can grab some Kimbap or a canned Coffee...

But there are some places you might don't want to miss!

The 1st one I would like to talk about is "Bulgogi Brothers"

Type: Korean Restaurant
Location: Seoul Finance Center
1-ga, Jung-gu, Seoul. Basement

I had one of the biggest dinners at Bulgogi Brother's, it was a never ending feast, the staff is very attentive, the meat we ate was top quality (as everything else) and out waiter even cut the meat for us^^

We ate Beef, Ribs, Mandu, Salad, Banchan, Cold noodles, Corn and pretty much whatever they brought to our table, we spent over 2 hours eating, if you visit Seoul you might not want to miss this place to have your share of Bulgogi!

My 2nd recomendation is "The Place Dining"

Type: Italian
Location: N Seoul Tower 2F

Even though this is not a place to go get your Korean Food and most people would recoment HanCook (also located at the Tower) this is restaurant serves excellent food and an AMAZING view, just for the view you'll know this place is worth it, it won't matter if you go by Day or Night, Spring, Autumn or Winter you'll have Seoul as your background, this place is ideal for a romantic date.

And my 3rd recommendation of the day is "Hwanghu Samgyetang-황후삼계탕"

Type: Korean/Samgyetang
Location: Seoul-si Jongno-gu.  Insadong 10-gil 5
Website: N/A

Samgyetang is Chicken Gingseng soup, this soup is cooked slowly with 19 medicinal herbs... You know this is good for you if it has 19 herbs, right?, when I visited this restaurant I had the “Insadong Samgyetang" due to its slow cooking method the soup is cooked for several hours and it makes the chicken very tender so you can just tear it in half and find it to be filled with rice, this food is served in the summer for its nutrients to replace those nutrients lost through sweating during the hot summers in Korea. 

So, there you have it, 3 different options to eat in Korea, you can choose between a MUST bulgogi restaurant, a place with THE view or the Healthy choice, I hope you get to try one of these places and ejoy it as much as I did!
