Guilty Pleasure

Itaewon's Guilty Pleasure exudes the atmosphere of a posh city hangout, without being the slighest bit pompous. This is only fitting, seeing that its menu places an emphasis on comfort food. The restaurant keeps visitors mmmming throughout the entire meal, from start to finish, with a wide selection of not-so-healthy but oh-so-delicious concoctions. Curry-like spinach dip and an uber-rich mac and cheese containing bacon lardons and chunks of pulled pork smoked in-house are good options to start. But the Buttermilk Fried Chicken smothered in Southern-style gravy served up with warm biscuits will have you wanting to slap your mama. Guilty Pleasure also boasts a beautiful patio, perfect for brunching or enjoying an icy cocktail on a warm day.
