• Where local flavors meets molecular gastronomy, experience a diner favored by the pop elite

If you’re already familiar with the basics of Korean food, it’s time to explore its cutting edge. Jung Sik Dang is a pioneer of neo-Korean cuisine, pushing the boundaries of local flavors using molecular gastronomy techniques. Chef Lim Jung Sik transforms Korean dishes like bibimbap by making it with seaweed purée, sea urchin, and fried millet. Be on the lookout for Korean music and movie celebs: the restaurant, in the heart of Apgujeong—one of Gangnam’s more well-heeled districts—is steps away from “Kstar Road,” named for its proximity to music label headquarters.

Jung Sik Dang is located in Korea’s famous Gangnam District - internationally known for its Gangnam Style. Look for the mismatched buildings and crowded signs of Seolleung-ro 158-gil, where you’ll find Jung Sik Dang on the corner where the road turns up in an L shape.​
