The colder the weather outside, the more popular it is! 'Mall Gourmet'
The recent cold wave in Siberia has been so intense that the phrase â
a warm winter that is not the same as usualâ is irrelevant. There are places that are popular as the weather gets colder these days when it's
not easy to step out of the futon due to the strong wind. It's
a shopping complex that can handle both dining and shopping. In the past, it was monotonous in the form of privately run food courts, but recently, complex malls where famous restaurants participate and âlook at restaurants and choose shopping malls â are popular. Today, the SNS Taste
Appraisal Group selected 5 complex malls that are loved by the public for their diverse flavors. Let's take a look at the variety of flavors at the complex mall, which is fun to choose and eat according to your preferences.
1. Korea's first grocerant, Apgujeong 'Gomei 494'
Gourmet 494 was the first place in Korea to introduce the Grocerant (Grocerant)
concept, which organically combines ingredients (ingredients) and
restaurants (restaurants). It is leading 'gourmet shopping' by showcasing not only Seoul's best restaurants, such as âRich Pizza,â âBrooklyn
The Burger Joint,â âJang Jin Woo Restaurant ,
â and âKaolipochana,â as well as famous restaurants from overseas. In the fall of last year, âMax Brenner,â which is said to be the first mecca for chocolate lovers in Korea , opened in the form of a pop-up store, making social media a hit. The service where you order food from the desired restaurant and only place the smart finder on the table and the staff brings
it directly is impressive.

diners to the extent that half of its brands were created as dining spaces. There are stores such as âFukuoka Hamburg
Steak,â famous for its homemade Korean beef hamburger steak, âMarugame
Zemen,â a udon restaurant that makes dough and noodles made directly at the store, and âBilly Angel,â which makes homemade
cakes. At Fukuoka hamburger, you can grill the steak directly at the table, but if you use chopsticks to peel the
hamburger steak and place it on a personal stone, it will quickly cook nicely. The menu starts at 9,900 won, so you can enjoy steak at a reasonable price.

animals, and they use jelly and cookies on top of soft ice cream to make the shape of a dog or
rabbit. The cup costs 4,800 won, and the cone costs 5,300 won, but it's a good idea to note that it
