La Cucina Italian Fine Dining in Seoul, Korea

Day 3 continues……..
la cucina italian restaurant seoul korea
Located just across Grand Hyatt Seoul is La Cucina, an authentic Italian restaurant that many swear it’s one of the best in Korea. Boasting 700 bottles of wine from its cellar located in the basement of the restaurant, an in-house sommelier will also assist you in choosing the best wine.

This post is long over-due. I was in #Seoul mid last year, shopping & eating.

That trip, I stayed at the Grand Hyatt Seoul. After my Spa At Grand Hyatt Seoul & Shopping At Namdaemun (南大门), I ended my night with an exquisite dinner at #LaCucina, recommended by the hotel’s concierge.

Let’s take a look at the menu:

The clear consommé was delicate, yet rich in flavour
& the lobster meat was beautifully presented.

The entire 7-course set was 95,000KRW, & that’s just USD 85!! What a deal! Menu was simple, but full of briny flavours. The service was warm, & food superbly executed.

To top it off, it was reasonably priced for a fine dining restaurant. I'll definitely be back, especially with such a lovely country-style restroom! Rating: ★★★★★
