korean food / seoul / 5 fusion Korean restaurants to enjoy in a different way – 2738

“Fusion Korean Food” combines cuisines of various nationalities such as Western, Japanese, and Chinese based on Korean food and reinterprets it as a creative cuisine. Fusion Korean food made by chefs with strong experience adding their own individuality gives it a special feeling that cannot be tasted anywhere else. It's also fun to find familiar flavors in dishes you've never experienced, such as bourguignon made from steamed ribs, yukhoe incorporating European-style tartar, and ribs cooked using the sous vide method. Here are 5 of the best Korean fusion restaurants to enjoy in a different way.

“Murocho Seongsu Nakak Branch” is a Korean bistro where you can enjoy wine and fusion Korean food. The signature dish is “Bourguignon beef rib stew,” made by putting two pieces of beef ribs on top of a mashed potato and then sprinkling rib sauce. Beef ribs that have been steamed for a long time and are soft to the inside melt in your mouth. If you eat beef ribs with mashed potatoes, the savory flavor envelops your mouth.
