In times when we wanted to break off from eating samgyupsal and kimchi in Seoul, fresh sushi and sashimi is our no-brainer choice. In fact, Japanese is the only cuisine we would never get tired of eating and one of the many reasons why we love going back to Japan. Anyway, this post is not about Japan but another Pinoy favorite destination - South Korea!
Our favorite area to stay when in Seoul is any hotel in Myeongdong due to its endless offerings of street food, shopping, and restaurants specializing in various cuisine. One name that immediately caught our attention was Gatten Sushi, one of Japan's famous conveyor belt sushi chains.
What we ordered
If you don't fancy anything off the conveyor belt, you can always push the call button and order from the staff. Most staff speak English but if not, you can always show your order from the menu.
|Halibut - KRW4,700 (Php200.00)
|Grilled Sea Eel - KRW4,700 (Php200.00)
|Abalone - KRW4,700 (Php200.00)
|Scallop - KRW4,700 (Php200.00)
Did we liked it? Down to the very last piece as everything we ordered were fresh and not to mention, affordable too! Our favorites were the scallop and unagi sushi (we had 2 orders each) which were a steal for its price given its excellent quality and huge cuts.
|Salmon - KRW2,300 (Php99.00)
Tip: If you plan to travel to South Korea anytime soon, bear in mind that visa application now takes up to 1 month processing via accredited agencies only. Most first time applicants are given a single-entry visa with 3 months validity but BPI and BDO Gold and Platinum Cardholders are issued 3 to 5 years multiple-entry visa subject the embassy's discretion, of course.
