I visited Isabelle the Buddha, who first brought in dry aging technology near Dosan Park
I would recommend the taste of this restaurant's steak, which is dried and aged for 21 days.
Compared to regular steak, the meat texture is soft and the soft texture goes well with it
Even the flavor of the meat survives, so I think it's safe to say that the steak is really tasty.
I'm sure many people have eaten dry-aged meat these days, but I hope they will definitely visit this place if they get a chance
Let me introduce Isabelle the Buddha, who is recognized as a gourmet restaurant in Apgujeong
Isabelle the Buddha is located in the alley in front of Dosan Park
Before posting on the blog, I introduced it on Instagram
A lot of people commented that it was a place they had already tasted.
I visited this place for the first time, but I was really satisfied, and it was also a steakhouse I came to.
When I went in the evening, it was full of customers who had made a reservation
The customer base is diverse, from couples to families.
The few empty tables are full of guests until the end of the evening
The setting for eating in earnest is completed
I'll start by looking at the menu and ordering
Let's go ahead and introduce the menu
Why is the picture on the menu like this?
Because the store has a quiet atmosphere and the lighting is dim
It was a bit difficult to take pictures.
You can feel that bread is delicious even before a meal.
A baguette that is crispy on the outside and moist on the inside
We begin to be moved by the savory flavor of the aperitif.
It's unsalted butter, but the thing you see inside is called persimmon.
It's unsalted, but I was able to feel the flavor
The point is to spread a generous amount on the aperitif and eat it.
Since persimmons are added to unsalted butter, it feels like savory bread and the scent of the sea go well together
Caesar Salad (16,500 won)
It's always nice to see a salad sprinkled with cheese
Visuals that seem to contain quite a lot of ingredients even from the outside
The point of this Caesar salad is the fried onion cut into thin slices and deep-fried to a crisp.
The crunchy texture goes well with salad
I really like the combination of anchovies with the dressing you make yourself
For some reason, it's a style where I can't get my hands on salads
Starting with Caesar Salad, which is really basic, I welcome you.
French onion soup
If the server also has regular customers drinking alcohol the day before
So much so that they say they do the trick with onion soup
A soup that came off cleanly and had a nice flavor
The aroma of mozzarella cheese and the sweet flavor of ripe onions go well together.
If you look at the contents, you can think of it as a soup that also contains baguette bread, so you can think of it as a soup that makes the most of its chewy texture.
Columbia Crest Cabernet Sauvignon
I also ordered a bottle of Isabelle the Buddha's house wine
It's a wine I don't usually drink, but in order to make the most of the mood, a bottle of wine
It was a wine that tasted great for the price.
I still need to study wine, but it was a good match for my personal taste.
The friendliness of the staff who explained in detail
If you have any questions about the menu, ask
They kindly explained in detail, so while eating
I think it was great to be able to understand food
Once again, congratulations on your brother's birthday
It's an Altarimu pickle that was really praised by the group I went with.
My older sister who got married said she would love to eat it at home
Unlike regular kimchi, it doesn't have soy sauce, so it goes well with steak.
The sense of putting a splash of cheese on well-cooked asparagus
After all, asparagus tastes best when grilled, and grilling is also the best
I wasn't expecting Cream Spinach
It's one of the dishes that was really loved by the group.
I believe that even those who don't like spinach will fall in love with its savory flavor
If you eat it with steak later, the flavor will be doubled.
Speaking of flavor, it's a savory potato with garlic added.
Thumbs up if you even pour sauce on it
Fillet Mignon Tenderloin Steak (100g 45,000 won)
I had to take a picture before it came out, but someone had already cut it off…
You may feel that it has a crunchy texture on the outside, but if you take a bite, you'll be amazed at the moist texture on the inside.
Even though it's safe, I used 1+, so the soft flavor was strong.
Isabelle the Buddha's signature menu is here
With T-bone as the center, you can enjoy two flavors at once: tenderloin and sirloin.
It's good that it's served hot on an iron plate, and first of all, the flavor of the meat as it cooks is very appealing.
Again, a sense of cooking that is crispy on the outside and moist on the inside
For the medium, moderately grilled visuals
The voices of the group asking them to stop taking pictures grew louder
I recommend eating the steak right before the meal.
I like to enjoy being medium rare, but
The server recommended that you try the dry-aged meat in medium format.
The only thing I can say is that if you really take a bite, it's really delicious than anything else
From tenderloin to sirloin, the soft texture was really good and the flavor was still alive.
The sense of putting everything from tenderloin to sirloin on a personal plate before eating
Steaks are the most delicious when you just eat them, but
I also put the whole grain sauce on it when sprinkled and ate it as a side dish, so it went well with it.
Spinach also goes really well with it
Still, I recommend just eating the meat!
I recommend feeling the flavor of the meat and feeling the different flavors of each part
Dessert apple pie
Isabelle the Buddha, a restaurant in Apgujeong that seems to be very popular among women
The ingredients are pretty until the last dessert, the apple pie
The crispy pie cheese and apple filling are really delicious
Desserts are also best when they have a strong cinnamon scent
I haven't tried many dishes called steak yet
I'll have to try it often and gain experience in the future
Still, among the steaks I've eaten in recent years, I'd like to give you a thumbs up recommendation.
Be sure to enjoy the flavor of dry-aged 1+ meat that is different from a regular steakhouse
