When it comes to this classic comfort food, it's often a matter of needs rather than wants. Here are 5 restaurants where you can find the crispy, juicy and fluffy goodness in the city.
Inside a renovated 2 story house in Daekhakro, Mix & Malt provides great classic and signature cocktails, coffee menu and entertainment. With a large bar section, a poker table (feel free to join the others whenever there’s a seat) and Play Station (Winning Eleven 2017, anyone?), you’ll get a plenty of booze and entertainment for you precious time alone. If you get hungry, try their fish and chips served with a whiff of malt vinegar. And of course, a pint of Guinness would be nice. The signature sous vide hanger steak, Buffalo Shrimp Sandwich, Bangers & Mash, chili mac & cheese and lasagna are great, as well.
A seemingly floating beer tap, the first of its kind in Korea, hangs from a 12-meter-long bar. The rest of the interior is just as sleek. The feeling is dark, modern and cool, yet cozy. It’s the kind of place you can come for the food and then stay for drinks without feeling the need to move elsewhere. Look around and you'll see that careful attention was paid to every detail, right down to the napkins, silverware and names of each menu item. The extensive menu includes everything from salads and burgers to meat entrees (lamb shanks, pork chops, beef ribeye, etc.), seafood entrees (salmon and mussels) and classics like fish and chips and shepherd’s pie.
