[Yeonhui Dong | Seodaemun-Gu] –

Caden is one of my top 3 Japanese izakaya in Seoul. Excellent. You can expect the same great dining experience as well as service.

They have 2 dishes which are very unique and I always order when I’m there – (1) 명란피자 (pollack roe pizza) (2) 힌우 수지 조림 (braised hanwoo tendon in tomato sauce).

“Chef Jeong Ho-yeong’s Izakaya Robataya Caden is always striving to evolve. The chef presents his famous udon dishes served on the first floor. The spacious second-floor dining hall continues to serve up the restaurant’s signature dishes for lunch as well, including the crispy grilled sea bream, mixed sashimi platter, grilled avocados dressed with soy sauce and spicy brisket champon. In addition to the wide selection of à la carte dishes, Caden also offers a good variety of Japanese liquor.”

The only downside to this izakaya is that it closes early (10 PM).
