I feel that autumn has arrived as I look at the trees that have changed from fresh green leaves to colorful clothes. The blue sky and the scenery of trees dressed in red and yellow autumn leaves make you feel like you are looking at a watercolor painting. If you don't feel comfortable going far, why not enjoy fall foliage viewing at a palace located in downtown Seoul? If you add the quiet atmosphere of Deoksugung Palace, Gyeongbok Palace, Changdeokgung Palace, Gyeonghuigung Palace, and Changgyeonggung Palace, which are known as the five greatest palaces in Seoul, and the colorful autumn leaves, plus gourmet food, it will be a perfect fall foliage viewing. Here are 5 of the best restaurants around Seoul Palace that offer food as colorful as autumn leaves.

Chef Shin Seung-hwan, who made his name known as âEl Choco de Tereno,â created âPlesapâ to break the prejudice that British food is not tasty. The signature menu, âBEEF WELLINGTON,â is a beef tenderloin wrapped in homemade prosciutto and mushroom paste, then coated with pastry dough and baked. The contrasting texture of the juicy tenderloin and the crispy crunchy texture along the texture is attractive.

âOsteria Sottiâ is a place where you can enjoy Italian cuisine in a quiet hanok. The signature menu is âlow-temperature cooked octopus,â which is cauliflower puree topped with low-temperature cooked octopus and mini grilled cabbage, then finished with a biscuit. You can break the biscuits into bite-size pieces and mix them together. The rich puree envelops the biscuits, octopus, and cabbage in a creamy way and melts softly.

âSpring Ponyâ makes you feel like you've come to an amusement park with carousel and pony props placed at the entrance of the store. The signature menu âSphinxâ catches the eye with its bittersweet sauce and spaghetti noodles colored pink. It is characterized by the fact that the beets are ground to reduce the feeling of the cream sauce and make use of the aroma. Bacon and mushrooms that are crunchy in the middle add richness to the chewy noodles.
â²Location: 25-3, Yulgok-ro 10-gil, Jongno-gu, Seoul
â²Opening hours: Wednesday to Sunday 11:30 to 16:00, closed on Mondays and Tuesdays

â²Testimonial (Shikigami Cosmetics Love): The atmosphere is as romantic as if you were in a scene from a fairy tale. No matter how tasty it was, I couldn't eat all of the cream pasta because it was greasy, but the Sphinx scraped up the sauce.
