A casual French bistro right off Seoul National University Station (Exit 1) in an area now known as Sharosugil. The name Sharosugil is a play off the popular Apgujungong street name called Garosugil. Created by rearranging the Korean letters in the school’s name, the sculpture resembles the letters for the sound “sha.” There are a lot of good eats in the area. I tried Juven Cuba for their Cuban-inspred dishes and it is good.
It was my first time here. This restaurant was recommended to me by one of my favorite sushi chef who lives in the area. This bistro is highlighted in the SeoulFoodPatrol 24-Hour / Late Night blog post as a place that is open late. It’s open till 2 AM everyday. No days off.
This bistro has been open for a year. The food here is outstanding. We ordered the Asparagus, Escargot Pie, Parmentor and the Chicken Roulade. Everything we had was delicious. The standout was the Parmentor. Think of this as the French version of Sheppard’s Pie. It’s shredded ox tail meat in a rich and delicious reduced sauce topped off with mashed potato.
The wine selection and prices is very good and easy on the pocket. A bottle of the house wine is W30,000.
I also recommend the cheese plate which consisted of brie, goat cheese, Mimolette cheddar and blue cheese.
Will definitely come back here for sure.
