Review: Sloe Bistro

I’ve been to Sloe Bistro a number of times now, for lunch, dinner, and the New Year’s Eve party. And each time I have thought, I should tell more people about this place.

Sloe used to be Eco Deli in Cheongdam-dong. The owner is a wine aficionado, so the restaurant has a great selection of wines at really reasonable prices. For lunch, they have a fantastic set menu for two people for 17,000 won, which includes a pasta, a pizza, and coffee/tea. I usually get the gorgonzola pizza which comes with honey for dipping. For dinner, Sloe’s menu includes fusion tapas, pizza, pasta, and meats. I recommend the lamb, which is tender and juicy and perfectly cooked.

Sloe has been pretty quiet each time I’ve visited (except New Year’s); I think the location is a bit odd so it doesn’t get much street traffic. (It's in the basement of a building in an area full of plastic surgery hospitals.) The decor and atmosphere is date-night nice, but not stuffy. If you happen to be near Apgujeong station and hungry, check it out!
