SEOUL, Nov. 8 (Korea Bizwire) – The Michelin Guide on Wednesday announced its highly regarded star selections for 24 restaurants with unique cuisine and quality service in Seoul, including six new places.
In the second edition for Seoul, two Korean restaurants — Ga On and La Yeon, which received the highest ranking from France’s famed food guide last year — maintained their three-star rating.
“We are excited to announce that our selection has been enriched by newly found restaurants, showcasing the vibrancy of the local dining scene in Seoul,” Michael Ellis, International Director in charge of the Michelin Guides, said during the awards ceremony in Seoul.
Two restaurants — Jungsik and Kojima-Sushi — newly obtained two stars in the second edition, along with Gotgan and Kwon Sook Soo, who also received that rating last year. The guide also recommended 18 one-starred restaurants, including four new ones.
The guide, published by the French tiremaker, bestows three stars to dining places offering exceptional cuisine worth a special journey and gives two stars to restaurants worth a detour for excellent cuisine.
