스시선수 – Chef Choi is an alum as the head sushi chef of the super famous Japanese restaurant, Ariake Sushi, at the Shilla Hotel. He’s been on his own now for about 8 years. At W160,000 for the sushi omakase, it’s not a bad deal especially for what you get and where the restaurant is located.

2019 Michelin Plate Restaurant

“Located within the chic contemporary space that is the Horim Museum, Chef Choi Ji-hoon offers an experience more refined than the norm. Just as sushi devotees who frequent his sushiya admire his passion and masterly finesse, he says he is inspired by watching his customers savor his food. For a more informal dining experience with direct interaction with the chefs, go for the counter seating. The service is attentive yet unobtrusive.” – Michelin Guide Inspectors
