A two Michelin star restaurant by chef Yim Jung Sik that has taken Korean food to another level by bringing molecular gastronomic techniques into Korean cuisine. Fantastically good Korean fusion dishes that have beautifully delicate presentations.

Stay.com Editors' Note

Jung Sik Dang is the dream of Chef Yim Jung Sik, who opened his flagship restaurant several years ago. A New York contingent having won its first Michelin Star in 2012. The Seoul version is no less perfect, but it is slightly more casual and friendly tucked away in a small alley in the city center.

Located in the trendy Gangnam district, the peaceful atmosphere here gives way to some extraordinary and colorful culinary art. Be sure and try the samgyeopsal, or friend pork belly here, it’s to die for. Reservations are a must.
