Marble interior, simple Scandinavian style furniture and Riedel’s Sommeliers Black Tie glass series—from the moment you open the hefty doors to El Senor Dulce, it will impress you with its simple yet tasteful decor. After running Dulce y Suave for 10 years in Garosu-gil, the owner opened up her second bar here in Cheongdam.
The best seat in the house is definitely the seats next to the large glass window, while slightly low tables and comfortable couches may remind you of a boutique hotel or a lounge bar. If you love wine, you really are at the right place: El Senor Dulce carries more than 100 kinds of wine from the top Bourgogne vintners like Henri and Georges Jayer to other famous Bordeaux wine regions such as Saint-Émilion, Pomerol. As for the food, 2 of the best menu choices are the steak topped with foie gras and the Jamón Ibérico dish.
The owner spent a considerable amount of time finding the best foie gras while residing in Europe. The result? It will taste close to or even better than the ones you’ve tried in Paris. The same painstaking effort also went into choosing the Jamón. El Senor Dulce uses the Cinco Jotas (5J) brand Jamón, one of the oldest and most respected in Spain. The recommended wine is Pago Florentino (80,000 won), a VP wine (Vinos de Pagos, Spain’s highest qualification for wine). Get yourself comfortable here and have a glass of wine in your hand—you can’t help but to fall in love.
