[South Korea: Seoul] 1* Onjium

Rating: 4.25/5
 
When I asked around for recommendations for Seoul, one of the names that kept popping up was Onjium. Part restaurant, part research institute, Onjium strives to preserve the authentic taste and heritage of traditional Korean cuisine through researching centuries-old recipe book. The restaurant is helmed by two chefs - researcher Park Seong-bae and Chef Cho Eun-hee who is trained in Korean royal court cuisine. From the concept, I thought that the restaurant would look very traditional but in fact, the space was actually quite modern with an open kitchen and views of the Gyeongbokgung Palace. The food was very refined and elegant - we had a wonderful time learning about the past and present of Korean cuisine, experiencing flavors and dishes not typically found in other Korean restaurants. Don't miss the Korean liquor pairing!
