Kwonsooksoo Reviews

KwonSookSoo demonstrates why it is deserved of its two Michelin stars by offering a large and distinctive menu, a relaxing ambience, and wonderfully prepared food. The chefs used a combination of contemporary and traditional cooking techniques, as well as local and imported products, to create a unique culinary experience. We opted to go with the 100,000 won set meal after making a two-month prior reservation and traveling from Australia to South Korea. They came in a variety of textures, flavors, and fragrances, each with its own personality. The server will ask you to sample them in a certain sequence in order to avoid particular tastes from overpowering the others in the dish. We didn’t like for the chilled bean soup with black truffle that we tried. There are traces of truffle oil and truffle in the soup, but it is overbearing since it is served cold and rather thick, almost like a thick paste. They did, however, provide a very big dish of sliced truffles as a thank you. The beef striploin was outstanding, and it was worthy of its own Michelin star. However, keep in mind that ordering a medium steak will result in a steak that is practically rare, but getting a medium well steak would result in a steak that is medium rare. The medium well is the most popular option among consumers. Our culinary journey lasted more than three hours and culminated in a sequence of mini fours that were simply overflowing with flavor, served with a selection of freshly made teas. We were completely stuffed by the time we got to the conclusion!!
