Roofers Pub/Restaurant/ Art VenueMonday, May 17, 2010
Steve, the owner of Roofers, should be given a medal for supporting the expat community. He was the original owner of Indigos and the Orange Tree and he helped build a sense of community in Haebangchon. He has been a constant supporter of the arts and many of the community theatres, musicians, and other performance groups have performed at his venues.
Steve's newest venue is Roofers in Itaewon. No, there are no drugs in the drinks. It's just on the top floors and the roof. Here you can often catch different performances and get good food. I have heard that they are starting to do brunch on their outside roof on weekends.
I would characterize Roofer's food as homestyle comfort food using fresh ingredients. It's not the fanciest food in the city, but it's filling and tasty. The burgers are quite good- one of the best.
I haven't had their brunch yet, but if the old Indigo is any indication (the chef is the same from the old Indigo); it will be pretty good-not Suji's good, but good.
