It captures natural flavors with more than 30 kinds of naturally fermented vinegar soaked by hand and seasonal ingredients procured from all over the country. The signature menu is “lunch,” where a full-scale course begins after boosting the taste with salamanders, prawn plum, and vinegar aid. In this season, you can enjoy seafood dishes, main dishes, and desserts using steamed chicken cromeski, squid, brisket, and conch. Chef Shin Chang-ho's “Jewel Taste,” which uses oil made from perilla seeds grown by his master craftsman and mother-in-law, is particularly popular. The rich flavor of perilla oil richly coated on abalone, caviar, and conch is impressive.

â–²Review (Star Bear): It's a Michelin star 1, but it was nice that the price wasn't as burdensome as I thought. When I ate the original course, the meat was the most memorable, but the perilla oil dishes here were really delicious, so I still think about them. It's a delicious seafood even if you just eat it, but I feel like it contains perilla oil to enhance the flavor 100 times more.

'7th Door' presents sensuous cuisine by Chef Kim Dae-cheon, focusing on fermentation and aging, which are the foundation of Korean food. The glass case at the entrance is filled with soy sauce, pickles, and vegetables handmade in the store. The signature menu “Dinner Course” is characterized by the fact that the composition changes every day using fresh ingredients disguised as that day. You can feel the chef's personality from the moment the Amuse Bush, which comes with 4 to 5 types of persimmon foie gras, yukhoe tart, fermented pumpkin mousse, and persimmon chips, appears. “Gimbap,” which is eaten in one bite by putting plenty of rice and caviar on top of daecheon seaweed, is also popular. The combination of caviar and seaweed brings a rich flavor to the mouth.
