Upon preparing to open a restaurant, the president of Andy’s Table realized that there are a lot of young Koreans who rigorously study and practice cooking in foreign countries. Unfortunately, what he also realized was that upon returning to their home country, many of these young professional chefs were unable to find places to continue their creative endeavors – Korea just didn’t have good infrastructures to support them. The result of the findings was Andy’s Table, a place where young chefs can set up pop-up restaurants. Located in the middle of Seorae Village, the Andy’s Table is working to create a new pop-up almost once a month, if not once a week. When Seoul is seeing a boom in the restaurant industry, pop-ups like Lim Jung-sik’s Gomtang (beef-bone soup) pop-up and Joseph Lidgerwood’s adventurous take on Korean ingredients are making places like Andy’s Table a leader in cultural events. As the venue has an open kitchen, guests will be able to experience first-hand the makings of their dishes, while a cooking classes, chef lectures, and various other studios are also made possible. There is even a small gallery for guests to enjoy some art.
