Privy 5 Overview

Share |

Wooriga Restaurant can be found on the 2nd floor of Hyoyoung building near Doosan Park in Cheongdam. The interior of the restaurant is quite simple yet chic with a few medium sized photos adorning the cream colored walls. Chef owner Jeong-Hyun Ahn livens up the restaurant with works of art served on the plates. The menu at Wooriga Restaurant presents the seasons in Korea and the ingredients used in creating the dishes are those that are in season. The chef owner’s formal training was in the arts and flower arrangement and that can be seen in the food she makes that has petals, leaves and branches as ornaments. It is the chef who chooses which imperial dishes to be featured at the time so it is more of a tasting menu. Beef is available all throughout the year so it is safe to say that the delectable autumn braised beef called galbi accentuated with roasted chestnut and jujube will be on the menu anytime. If the eel with sesame leave wrap is available when you visit then consider yourself lucky as it is such a savory treat. Chef Ahn of Wooriga aims to delight all the five senses through her food that reflects all the four seasons and she does exactly just that. Reservations at Wooriga restaurants may be done via phone; dial 02-344 222-88.
