Soul Food of Seoul: Seoul Dining Guides Published by Seoul City
Two Guidebooks on Seoul Dining Published by Seoul City
Seoul City has published two new dining guides so that visitors and tourists may fully enjoy their culinary experience of the city. The guides, entitled "Soul Food of Seoul," have been published in English, Japanese, and Mandarin (both in traditional and simplified Chinese scripts).
10 Must-Visit Food Alleys, 10 Must-Taste Korean Foods, and More
The first guide, "Soul Food of Seoul: A Delicious Epicurean Journey," begins with an introduction to Korean cuisine, called hansik, in Korean -- or "nature's gifts for health." It also lists excellent restaurants located in popular tourist districts such as Insadong, Itaewon, and Gangnam. As Western-style desserts are not a part of most menus on Korean restaurants, the guide also includes a list of cafes that serve desserts to complete your meals. An addendum includes where to shop for hard-to-find ingredients to take back home.
Most notably, the guide details Seoul's ten best food alleys, a unique and quintessential Seoul dining experience that no self-respecting food tourist must miss. Hard-to-spot alleys that specialize in serving a specific dish, such as galbi (grilled meat), tteokbokki (spicy rice cakes), and even pig feet or hand-pulled noodles are favorite local hang-outs that make Seoul uniquely charming and full of flavor.
The list of restaurants includes useful information for tourists such as: best-known dishes, price range, directions, languages spoken, contacts, operating hours and more.
Vegetarian and Halal Friendly Restaurant Guide Published
The second guide, "Soul Food of Seoul: A Guide for Vegetarians," sets out to guide vegetarians around the city. Three types of vegetarian restaurants are surveyed, including Buddhist temple restaurants, traditional Korean vegetarian restaurants, and restaurants that serve vegetarian fares.
Furthermore, a list of halal restaurants is also included in this guide for Muslim travelers.
