Korean Tasting and Tea Tour April 17th

First, visitors will be taken to a Korean Restaurant to enjoy a custom tasting menu of over 20 different Korean dishes paired with several traditional alcohols. The dishes are small, so you can enjoy a range of different tastes, styles, and textures. While you are enjoying your food, the guide will explain the dishes you are eating and offer interesting tidbits of information about Korean history and culture.

After the tasting, there will be a brief walk around Insadong to show you where you can find the best restaurants, eateries, and bars that are off the beaten path.
