A kimchi lesson at O’ngo.
Seoul’s chefs offer traditional specialties such as barbecued meat and kimchi, as well as sophisticated reinterpretations of the classics.
Explore // O’ngo
At O’ngo, Seoul Eats blogger Daniel Gray and his business partner offer culinary experiences ranging from three-hour kimchi lessons to a farmhouse visit for a lesson in making traditional Korean sauces.
Lunch // Sandang
The food here is as whimsical as it is healthy and delicious. Don’t miss Crabs Walking (tiny fried crabs on green sauce), flambéed chestnut and grilled shrimp in an exquisite potato- thread basket.
Afternoon // Kimchi Museum
The Kimchi Museum, in the basement of Coex, is a weird amalgamation of kimchi information and kitsch (redeemed by kimchi samples).
Tea Time // Park Hyatt
At the Park Hyatt’s Korean take on English high tea, try the subtle, pine-mushroom tea paired with luscious, beautifully crafted Korean sweets.
Dinner // Congdu
Congdu, a serene hideaway in Seoul’s Museum of History, specializes in “Neo Korean” cuisine such as abalone with sticky rice, Korean beef with black garlic and green apple sorbet with red bean jelly.
