I got an interesting request the other day. Some high profile restaurateurs are coming to Korea and they are looking for some high end, high profile restaurants or chefs. They are looking for more a Korean chef that uses ingredients in a new and unique way. I’ve been thinking Gaon in Apgujeong, but I’m wondering if there are any other restaurants out there that are at the top of their game.
Here’s what they are looking for:
“What makes him superior or unique? Is he changing the way people look at Korean food? Using traditional ingredients in unconventional ways? That’s the type of chef/restaurant we’re interested in profiling – especially because it will contrast nicely with the stories we do in the country side.”
Any recommendations? I can offer you a free meal^^
