GoGung, Myeong-Dong, Seoul. (고궁 – 명동점)
My last dining experience with the Korean restaurant named GoGung was in Kuala Lumpur, Mid Valley Shopping Centre on my last day working there. I was with my colleague for a lunch, not a farewell lunch.
When I was in Seoul for business trip with another 4 colleagues, we bumped into GoGung in Myeongdong 8ga-gil. So, we decided to have our dinner here before heading back to hotel.
The ambience of the restaurant looks cosy and and quiet. We went up to the second floor and entered the restaurant, there were a few group of people eating there while being entertained by the classical instrument’s performers.
After went through the menu, we decided to order one set and have add-ons.
They offered five different side dishes. I liked the salads very much. The salads’ sauce was very appetizing. My colleague said, the vegetable was beautifully garnished and he did not want to eat it.
Here are all the food that we ordered.
Jap Chae (잡채)
It is a stir-fried Korean glass noodle. It is very flavourful and nutritious dish that can be served as a main meal, snack or appetizer. It is worth to order this dish if you do not want to order its set meal.
Jeon means Korean Pancake. There are various type of Korean pancake we can see in Korean menu and it is an appetizer too. Pajeon mean green onions pancake, which we always see in Korean restaurant.
We ordered two different types of pot for bibimbap, but basically, they are same ingredients.
It was really a lot of food that we have ordered. Our table was full with food when all of it was served. 잘 먹겠습니다 .
