I'm sorry for giving a bad review. It's just... I really can't eat garlic. It makes me feel bad. So you would say: why did you go there? Well, I was with around 10 friends, eating with the parents of one of them. But honestly,...More

Do not be afraid to eat here but do be warned that all of the dishes include lots of delicious garlic. The staff was accommodating to our dietary restrictions. They made substitutions (no pork) to the dishes without compromising the taste or the integrity of...More

The food came a little slowly because it was busy but otherwise it was great. Everything I have tried there is delicious. You must like garlic to enjoy it, though.

Apgujeong / Cheongdam
Aside from Sinsa / Garosugil, no other area in Seoul
connotes the words “luxury” and “fancy” like Apgujeong
and Cheongdam. Global luxury brands have set up their
flagship stores here, catering to the neighbourhood's
mostly affluent residents. It’s also one of the top
areas in Korea (some say the world) for cosmetic

for a little nip or tuck. The other parts of Apgujeong
