With so many choices in Seoul to try, we recommend not wasting your calories and saving those precious meals for some excellent experiences. This week we have curated some of Seoul’s most sought after, distinctive restaurants for you to consider.
As a foundation for its cooking, it was inspired by and revered traditional Korean cuisine. Mingles introduces you to a new way of experiencing Korean food.
The interior’s extreme minimalism is most likely purposeful, given the restaurant’s focus on food. Food with a lot of flavor, high-quality ingredients, and little amounts. Mingles is a once-in-a-lifetime experience worth pursuing. Every course is spotless, well-thought-out, and delectable. The wine selection is outstanding. The staff maintains a level of professionalism and kindness that is uncommon in Seoul’s haute cuisine establishments.

The cuisine was excellent and could not have been bettered. The restaurant’s décor is contemporary and beautiful without being pretentious, with a 1920s Art Deco flair. The restaurant’s standout is its service, which goes above and above to make you feel unique. The fusilli con ragout di manzo, a delicious homemade al dente pasta, is reason enough to visit Boccalino. A wood-fired oven was used to make the fresh margherita pizza.
The contemporary interpretations of classic southern Italian meals you’ll discover here, each made with love and showmanship in the stunning open kitchen, are perfectly matched by the sun-drenched marble walls, glistening metal accents, and cognac leather banquettes.
