Many Korean restaurants are solely focused on the food, and rightly so. But people like nice surroundings, and the sleek interior and brass tableware at Gaewhaok add a sophisticated touch to this upscale restaurant serving traditional Korean fare.
Well-known for its bulgogi (spicy Korean beef), the Gaewhaok also tickles guests’ tastebuds with beef tartare, roast brisket with seasoned vegetables, and doenjang (fermented soybean paste) soup with anchovies and noodles. Wash it all down with an icy swig of soju (Korean distilled alcohol), which now comes in a grapefruit flavor. Gunbae (Korean for cheers)!
