A Meal Fit for a KingWant to eat like royalty? Tucked away in the basement of the Seoul Finance Center, this streamlined restaurant has been serving up Gaeseong-style cuisine for the past 30 years. Prized by royalty, this type of cuisine originated in the old capital of Korea’s Goryeo Dynasty, and is meant to be experienced using each of the five senses.
Nosh on bamboo steamed rice, mung bean jelly and jeon (Korean-style pancakes), then take a moment to appreciate the wall art made with old wooden typography that evokes a bygone era.
