korean food / seoul / Five of Seoul’s best makgeolli restaurants with savory aromas and mild flavors – 2863

Our sake, makgeolli, is made by combining rice grown on our own soil, clean water, and yeast that makes the magic of fermentation. It has been loved by the common people for a long time for its immaculate appearance, subtle sweetness, and smooth texture. Today, I'd like to introduce my best friends to explode the taste of carefully made, ice-soaked makgeolli.

1. 'Joo 052' in Wangsimni, a bistro for our sake by two chefs from Ulsan
