korean food / seoul / 5 best date bars, plus a spoonful of sensibility – 2782

A typical date course usually involves eating a delicious meal, enjoying a sweet dessert, and sipping a drink. The bar that will mark the end of a date must have something special, unlike a typical, bustling bar. Dorando has a 99.9% chance of ending a successful date if all three conditions are met: an atmosphere where you can talk, snacks that appeal to your taste buds, and alcoholic beverages with a diverse list! The fun of choosing from places with dim lights that make you feel dreamy to places where your eyes are happy with the sunshine shining through the windows is a bonus. Here are 5 best date bars with a spoonful of sensibility.

1. “Itamaebaru” in Samseong-dong filled with the freshness of seasonal ingredients

“Itamaebaru” consists of 1 floor where you can see the open kitchen and 2 floors with large windows that give a sense of openness. The signature menu is “sashimi,” where you can enjoy the freshness of seasonal fish such as flounder, sea bream, yellowtail, salmon, and mackerel. Two types of wasabi are prepared together: regular wasabi, which adds the umami of red fish, and white wasabi, which is less tangy and doesn't mask the light flavor of white fish.

â–²Review (Shikigami Sujhat): I think it's like a spacious and sentimental izakaya! I ordered a sashimi platter, but I usually couldn't eat the mackerel sashimi because it didn't smell at all, and the more I chewed it, the more savory it was, so it was pure!

2. Dim lighting that enhances the atmosphere, 'Suburban Bistro' in Sinsa-dong

“Suburban Bistro” is a fusion izakaya operated under the concept of a late-night restaurant. The dim lighting that illuminates the small space store enhances the intimate atmosphere. The signature menu is “grilled lamb ribs with a crust” made by grilling a French rack with bones and garlic-herb crust. The garlic-herb crust adds a crispy texture and mild garlic flavor to the juicy lamb ribs.

“Fair Enough” shows off a cozy sensibility in a quiet alley in Jayang-dong. The white-toned interior, filled with wooden furniture, gives a warm feeling. The signature menu, “Butternut Squash Scallop,” is a peanut pumpkin puree topped with scallops baked in butter and served with quinoa. The butter-scented, softly crunchy scallops and the popping texture of quinoa stand out.

“Recitation” is a self-service wine sea where you can enjoy picking your own wine and snacks from the shelves. If you pay in advance, the staff will open the wine and set it with a matching glass. In addition to reasonable wine prices, you can bring in food from outside, so it's a space where you can drink wine casually. The sugar content, taste, and weight of each type of wine are written down, so you can choose without much difficulty.

“Shoyu Diner” is a great place to enjoy a drink with a hearty snack like a meal. The signature menu “Seafood Platter” neatly combines shrimp, blue crab, conch, and salmon aged in a special soy sauce on one plate. It's easy to choose and eat by texture and flavor, such as soy sauce crab mixed with egg yolk and crab entrails, green salmon paste, and chewy conch paste. The style of adding rice for sushi and eating seafood on it is also delicious.
