La Yeon***

Last visited 28.05.17

Traditional Korean cuisine (Hansik) with a contemporary approach.

La Yeon, located at the top floor of the Shilla Hotel, has a stunning view over the N Tower and an elegant dining space. It offers two sets for lunch, The Propriety (KRW98,000) and La Yeon (KRW170,000). We ordered both sets, it would be better to order La Yeon as it has 2 beef dishes, for The Propriety an extra fee is charged for beef dishes. I like all dishes, they were all delicious, especially the steamed red mullet and the thin slices of Korean beef. The milk pudding dessert was ordinary, I prefer the cinnamon tea and red bean paste rice cake at the end.

It is worth visiting as it is one of the two Korean restaurants that owns Michelin 3 stars and at the same time in the Asia50Best ranking.

與現代結合的傳統韓食。

在韓國不能只吃有西方影響的韓食,所以去了新羅酒店的羅宴。在最高樓層的羅宴一進去就感覺很簡潔優雅,靠窗位置還可以看到南山塔,這景觀只有這裡有吧。這裡中午提供兩款菜單,禮(KRW98,000)八道,選牛肉再另加費,或羅宴(KRW170,000)九道。我們兩款都選了,當然吃牛肉的話選羅宴會比較好因為有兩道牛肉。每道菜都好吃,尤其是魚和牛肉,甜品普通,喜歡最後的肉桂茶和紅豆泥。

作為兩間其中一間米芝蓮三星的韓食餐廳,同時又是亞洲50大,真的值得嘗試。
