DESTINATIONS south korea seoul Dining Philkyungjae


Indulge in traditional Korean food at restaurant Philkyungjae. The restaurant occupies a historical building constructed in the 1400s. Here you can enjoy 18-course meals cooked with high-quality ingredients. The service is attentive and efficient.


Much as expected from a busy Asian metropolis such as Seoul, the city truly has a lot to offer in the way of dining, from traditional Korean restaurants to flavourful and endlessly varied street food, along with, of course, a plethora of eateries serving cuisine from all corners of the globe. In Korea, every sit-down meal is accompanied by kimchi--a spicy pickled cabbage, and some of the must-tries include bibimpab (vegetables and rice with an egg on top), Korean-style BBQ, and the many side dishes (banchan) that come with a staple of steamed rice.
