korean food / seoul / [Michelin Guide 2017] Tasting Real Italian Pasta in Seoul – 1162

“Pasta” is a collective term for noodle-shaped food made using wheat flour. In some cases, grains other than flour are used, and not only spaghetti-like noodle shapes, but everything from large lasagna to tagliatelle with a shape similar to kale noodles belongs to pasta. It is also important to choose different pasta noodles depending on the texture, width, and length of the noodles when stir-fried in such a variety of pastas.

Pasta, which is no longer just a one-off meal on a special day, has become even closer to us, and our expectations for taste have increased just as much. If you want to enjoy pasta that cannot be distinguished simply from cream pasta and tomato sauce pasta in a more different and elegant way, check out this post. You can find everything from unique combinations you've never experienced, to pasta with authentic Italian flavors.

1. Authentic Venetian pasta, Sogyeok-dong 'Italian Jae'

Go to store information â–¶

This is a place that presents Italian pasta in Hanok, the most Korean space. The view of the hanok seen through the glass window and the natural light add to the quiet atmosphere. It's also a good idea to sit at a bar (bar) where you can watch yourself cook when visiting for one or two.

The signature dish is “truffle cream gnocchi,” which is made by finely grating an oven-baked potato, kneading it with cheese, freezing it, and baking it to a crisp. Fresh cream, fontal cheese, grana padano cheese, and truffle pesto are mixed with vegetables, and the texture of the gnocchi, which is soft enough to be felt in mashed potatoes, is exquisite. “Sea urchin, fish and egg pasta” is also a popular menu. If you grate the fish and sea urchin well and eat it while feeling the balance between the saltiness of the fish and the oil, and the rich texture of the sea urchin cheese, the flavor is excellent. The point of adding a savory flavor is the sea urchin that blends with the noodles like butter.

You can order the crispy deep-fried risotto and meatballs with rich, heavy tomato sauce, one at a time, so they are great to enjoy as an appetizer. It is said that they operate by appointment, so it's a good idea to check it out when you visit.

“Osteria Cotto”, located in Apgujeong, presents dishes that make use of various ideas and the characteristics of each ingredient based on Italian home-cooked meals. Pasta uses dried noodles or raw noodles that go well with each menu, so you can enjoy the fresh yet chewy texture.

The value-for-money “lunch course” is popular. After tasting bread and Italian snacks as appetizers before the meal, they finish with pasta, dessert, and coffee (or tea) of their choice. It's a good idea to note that even for the same lunch course, the price varies depending on the pasta you order. Popular pastas include “Rose spaghetti with blue crab and scallops” and “porcini pesto cream, clams, and linguine,” where you can enjoy the benefits of both cream sauce and tomato sauce. The crunchy texture of linguine noodles, the aroma of wild mushrooms, and the rich flavor of the cream sauce are exquisite. Overall, the seasoning is a bit strong, but it is characterized by making good use of the texture and flavor of each pasta. There are a variety of menus that go well with wine, so many people come here to enjoy the wine.

The Osteria Kotto is a single building with 3 floors, and each floor can create a different atmosphere, making it a popular place for small weddings (house weddings).

4. OK, Mipiace is great! Cheongdam 'Mipiace'

Go to store information â–¶

“Mipiace” has remained in the same position for over 10 years in Cheongdam-dong. It is an Italian restaurant that continues to be loved by people for its cozy atmosphere and stable taste. The building has 1 and 2 floors, and there are separate rooms for group guests on the 2nd floor.
Mipiace is popular for all kinds of pasta, steak, and fish dishes, including the signature appetizer menu “Calamari tempura.” You can enjoy calamari tempura, which is chewy and soft, deep-fried to a crisp, even more delicious by dipping it in tartar sauce sprinkled with lemon juice. At Mipiace, you can also find fish roe, sea urchin roe, and pasta flavored with olive oil, but the unique combination of sea urchin roe and linguine flavored with rose sauce is popular. There are a variety of steaks available, such as Korean beef tenderloin, T-bone, and lamb ribs, but “Spanish Iberico pork T-bone steak” is a special menu that can only be found here.
Rather than great finesse and glamor, it's a place that offers home-style menus that make you feel like a la carte rather than a course. As a dessert menu, the “apple pie,” which has a unique plating where the pie and stewed apple are served separately, is popular. Apple pie eaten with sweet ice cream has a subtle cinnamon flavor and savory nuts that add a chewy texture.

5. “Doughroom by Swaniye” in Seorae Village for hand-picked fresh pasta

Go to store information â–¶

“Doughroom by Swaniye” offers fresh noodles using a variety of ingredients, such as short pasta, herbs, and squid ink. Fresh noodles picked by hand are characterized by being soft, moist, and rich in the aroma of flour and eggs. You can watch the cooking yourself through the spacious open kitchen, so you can enjoy watching and enjoy the taste at the same time.

The signature menu is “Squid ink capellini with garlic butter sauce.” The menu is flavored with capellini noodles made from squid ink, which means “fine hair,” garlic butter sauce, and grilled shrimp. The flavor of the sauce and the flavor of the seafood from grilled shrimp are excellent. “Cavatelli pasta,” a Spanish-style sausage stir-fried with chorizo, shrimp, shiitake mushrooms, and green beans, and topped with parmigiano reggiano cheese in crustacean sauce is also one of the popular pastas. The point is that homemade tteokbokki cabatelli noodles made with pepper are properly cooked and boiled, then stir-fried in shrimp oil to enhance the flavor. Using shellfish sauce, the scent of shrimp and the crunchy texture of the cavatelli pasta are strangely addictive.

Among the appetizer menus, “vitello tonato,” a dish of low temperature cooked veal cut into thin slices with tonato sauce (tuna sauce), is popular. In the case of pasta prepared in a dough room, every dish has its own unique pasta shape, and it is said that no single food uses the same sauce. They have an extensive wine list, so it's a great place to enjoy together.

â–²Location: 2nd floor, 797-20, Bangbae-dong, Seocho-gu, Seoul â–²Business hours: 12:00-22:00 every day (BREAK TIME 15:00-18:00) â–²Price: Garlic butter sauce, squid, ink capelette, 15,000 won, grilled Caesar salad, 15,000 won â–²Testimonial (Aliens eating): The veal tenderloin was amazing, Iberico was just plain cold, I was wondering what it would be like if the capellini was cold, the texture and flavor of the gnocchi were all satisfied, the texture and flavor of the gnocchi were all satisfied, even if it was garnelli Also, overall, the balance was good and I was satisfied. Agnolotti, which I wanted to eat, was missing from the menu, and what was a bit disappointing was that the price range was a bit high. 4 people paid a full price, so it was almost 200,000 won. Also, since I didn't order the dessert to go to another place to eat, I was puzzled because I was skilfully inducing orders, but I felt a bit pressured. Still, the overall service was good, and I was personally more satisfied than Suwaniye.
