Seoul Michelin Guide 2018 - Gaon And La Yeon Retains 3 Stars, Jungsik And Kojima Receives 2 Stars

The Michelin Guide Seoul 2018 is out, featuring a total of 23 restaurants.

Gaon in Gangnam and La Yeon at The Shilla Hotel, both serving Korean cuisine, retained their 3 stars.

If I need to pick a restaurant between the two, I would say I had a more memorable dining experience at La Yeon, both in terms of ambience and food quality.

It is no surprise that modern Korean restaurant Jungsik helmed by Chef Yim Jung-sik gets awarded two stars, increased from last year’s one.

A regular on Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants, New York’s Jungsik outpost has already received its 2 stars in 2013 – the first stateside Korean spot to receive two Michelin stars.

The other NEW Michelin two-starred restaurant is Japanese restaurant Kojima Sushi.

There are a total of 18 one-starred restaurants, of which 4 are NEW. They are Exquisine (Innovative Cuisine), Dosa (Innovative), Joo Ok (Korean Contemporary), and Table for Four (European Contemporary).
