What should we eat today?
This place started off as a small shop in Seorae Maeul. Now, they have over 40 stores around the nation. Founded in 2009, they opened under the owner’s motto of: “Don’t be stingy with the portions. Even though they don’t know Thai food well, they’ll be coming back for more once they taste it.” In March of last year, Saint Augustin Sadang opened up on the fourth-floor of an elegant building called Pastel City, near Sadang station. Many people come here to have a cold Heineken after a hard day’s work. Order their fried bass, which is crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside, with spicy chili sauce as your main dish and some chili bass with a Heineken draft beer and you’ll have the perfect finish to a long day.
Many people consider Din Tai Fung to be the representative Taiwanese restaurant in Seoul. After all, they are responsible for introducing xiaolongbao to the world. It’s already been 20 years since The New York Times selected this place as one of the world’s top 10 restaurants. Your eyes will involuntarily hone in on the deliciousness of the xiaolongbao, accompanied by their soy ginger dipping sauce. Be sure to put the xiaolongbao on a spoon and poke it with a fork to let the hot juices out before putting it in your mouth. Start things off with some xiaolongbao and then enjoy a Heineken with some spicy kkanpunggi (kung pao chicken)!
