In mid-July K11 Musea will welcome its latest Korean restaurant, Soil to Soul, an eatery that focuses on Buddhist-friendly temple food. The new restaurant will be helmed by chef Gu Jin Kwang, a temple food master with 25 years of experience in the kitchen who learned his craft under purview of Buddhist nuns.
Soil to Soul offers a wide range of dishes that adhere to three simple principles of clarity, flexibility, and compliance with the Buddha Dharma. The dishes – which are offered over lunch, six and eight-course dinner sets, and the a la carte menu, include appetisers like ginseng salad, cold mushroom terrine with sweet and spicy sauce, and yellow bell pepper cold soup with Korean kimchi.
Pan-fried tofu and burdock
For the main course, diners can opt for a range of Korean-style noodles, rice cakes, and bibimbap, as well as other exciting dishes like pan-fried tofu and burdock, and sweet and sour shiitake mushrooms with assorted vegetables. Revellers will be able to quench their thirst while taking in the restaurant’s spacious, earthy-coloured interior, with a selection of organic wines and – in true Korean style – soju.Share the story
