Interested in new Korean cuisine?
Junsik is the pioneer of new Korean cuisine in Korea which combines traditional Korean with other culinary techniques in the world, its 3 storeys restaurant located at Cheongdam dong includes a bar, restaurant and private room. And in 2017 it received a Michelin star as well as no.22 in Asia50Best ranking.
I had the 4 courses menu (KRW60,000) for lunch, another option was a 5 courses menu (KRW 80,000). The amuse bouche was a variety of 5 finger foods to open up the taste buds. As a starter I love the raw tuna platter which paired with crispy seaweed, it was fun to pick whatever I like from the platter and put it on the piece of crispy seaweed to make a delicious bite. Rice is an important ingredient in Korean’s bap culture, not like any other traditional gimbap, the gimbap here was made with crispy seaweed. And the bibimbap was mixed with fried millet, topped with sea urchin, it was as delicious as it looked.
The desserts here were all amazing, especially the rose of versailles, it was stunning, the rose petals were made of blueberry, balancing the slightly strong flavour of the cheese. Though the rose of versailles was really beautiful, I prefer hot corn with candied pecan, I like the light corn flavour.
I had a pretty good time here.
