Refined taste / Refined taste and beauty, serosu-gil – 17

People visiting Sinsa-dong these days say, âShop on Garosu-gil and eat on Serosu-gil.â Serosu-gil, home to a variety of unique small cafes and restaurants, was initially a quiet alley in Sinsa-dong. The famous Garosu-gil in Sinsa-dong, located at exit 8 of Sinsa-dong Subway Station (Line 3), was gradually saturated with shops, and rents soared to the ceiling, and as a result, commercial districts gradually moved to surrounding alleys where rents were low, and a vertical street was created. This small, quiet, yet somewhat charming alley is perfect for a quiet walk. There are restaurants and cafes that have been renovated from single-family houses and have unique characteristics, but unlike the quiet streets, you can see that there are relatively many people inside the store. If you don’t like commercialized restaurants that have become popular, how about looking for a restaurant that’s perfect for your taste in Serosu-gil, Sinsa-dong?




1. Delicious pizza makes you smile

Rich Pizza, which makes you feel good even after making a name, is an Italian restaurant with its head office in Itaewon. Like a restaurant loved by women, the exterior has a clean interior with layers of firewood that will be baked in an oven. When you enter the interior, the atmospheric illuminated interior with a chandelier using empty wine bottles draws attention. If you order pizza, they will first serve basil pesto, parmesan cheese, and pepperocini, and you can dip them with pizza or salad bread according to your preferences. Famous for its refreshing rich salad (14,000 won), which is served with vegetable salad and bread, and margherita con bufala (18,000 won) based on tomato sauce. If you ask for jalapenos separately, they serve them whole without slicing them, so the spiciness is more intense. I tend to wait a bit during mealtime.

2. A place that makes proper homemade burgers

Delhi Heinzberg is a homemade burger restaurant that anyone who has visited Sinsa-dong a few times may be familiar with. They sell homemade burgers and paninis made with fresh ingredients such as homemade bread, sauce, and pickles. Various oils and glasses for sale are displayed on wooden shelves in the open space decorated by trimming old wood. The interior is tightly packed with about 10 tables, and like a burger shop, the tables rotate quickly. The chili burger (14,000 won), which is filled with chillies and spicy Mexican beans, and the impressive visual onion ring burger (12,000 won) are famous. You can taste and buy homemade sauces and pickles made here, and they also sell oil bottles, cheese, and bakeries. If you want to enjoy a meal that is pleasing to the eye and mouth, this is the place to go.

3. A fun Korean dessert cafe 

W.I is a Western-style reinterpretation of Korean sweets such as hotteok, crystal fruit, and miso powder, and also has branches in Samcheong-dong and Hongdae. The small interior of about 10 tables is decorated in a vintage yet atmospheric style. Like a sweet dessert cafe, most of the customers are women. The classic banana hotteok and Injeolmi ice cream set (12,000 won), which is a staple seller regardless of the season, and granita (8,500 won), which is the most popular miso powder in summer (8,500 won), is an Italian-style ice cream confectionary made by freezing fruits such as lime, lemon, and grapefruit with sugar, wine, and champagne. The transparent ice crystals feel like crystal stones. W’s granita is made and served with crystals, sweet sake, and miso powder. If you’re tired of eating the same sweets all the time, immerse yourself in the unique world of Korean sweets at W.I.

4. Known as Gangnam’s top 3 izakaya <ëëì¬ (The Dish) > (link)

The Dish, where Chef Henny Kim from Shilla Hotel is the owner-chef, is an oriental fusion restaurant for lunch and a popular izakaya in the evening. The modern and clean interior has several compartments other than the hall space, so it’s great for groups or important dining. The open kitchen, where you can feel the chef’s confidence, is wonderful. Here, you can enjoy a variety of cuisines, from Southeast Asian cuisines such as pad thai and chum yum goong to Japanese dishes such as sushi, croquettes, and Nagasaki champon. They are famous for grilled lamb ribs (35,000 won), Nagasaki champon (20,000 won), and crabmeat cream risotto (13,000 won). An izakaya that goes well with a glass of sake with a variety of dishes.

The food is really delicious! â²Business hours: 11:30 p.m. – 11:30 p.m. (break time 2:30 to 5:30) â²Price range: 13,000 won to 35,000 won â²Location: 7, Apgujeong-ro 10-gil, Gangnam-gu, Seoul (532 Sinsa-dong)





5. Brunch and dining pub in a stylish space <ë² ê°ì¤> (link)

Vegas, which serves brunch for lunch and a dining pub for dinner, is a hot and popular place that opened earlier this year. This place, with its downlit lighting and stylish interior, has a bar, table seats, and group seats, so it’s easy to sit in any group, but most of them are couples on a date. The combination of hot beat music and dark lighting makes you feel as unique as if you were eating at a club. I like the sense that the menu is separated between when you’re hungry and when you’re not hungry. Bacon burgers (9,000 won) and spicy carbonara (15,000 won) are famous, and the set menu that you can enjoy at lunchtime or weekday evenings is also good. A vibrant dining pub that’s great to enjoy even when you’re hungry.
