korean food / seoul / An overseas trip from Seoul! 5 restaurants with an exotic atmosphere – 2682

It's been over a year since I haven't been able to travel abroad due to the coronavirus. Even in Seoul, where people are careful not only when traveling abroad but also when traveling domestically, restaurants where you can eat with an exotic sensibility are on the rise. Embodying the characteristics and flavors of each country, it makes you feel like you've gone on a trip for a while. From nearby Japan to Hong Kong, Hawaii, France, and Vietnam! How about quenching your thirst for travel by visiting themed places in each country? An overseas trip from Seoul! Here are 5 of the best restaurants with an exotic atmosphere.

1. Enjoy fusion Japanese cuisine while looking out at the pond, 'Songam Inn' in Ikseon-dong

“Songam Inn” was reborn as a fusion Japanese oriental pub from “Songam,” which was run as a fairy in the 1980s. There is a ferry floating in the small pond, making you feel like you've come to Japan. The signature menu is “beef dachang okonomiyaki,” which is topped with chewy noodles baked on top of cabbage, beef brisket, dried bonito flakes, and egg yolk. The onion sauce was added to add a sweet flavor.

“Lan Kwai Jin” is a Hong Kong-style pub with colorful beer bottles, postcards, and posters all over the wall that seems to have been moved directly from a store on the streets of Hong Kong. The signature menu, “Cotton Soba Sweet and Sour Pork,” draws attention with its round, deep-fried visuals. I covered the tenderloin with a thin layer of tempura to make the most of the crispness. The combination of the soft, crunchy tenderloin and the crispy tempura batter is exquisite.
