Michelin Guide to Korean Dining – Part 2

A chef’s dedication, Gotgan by Lee Jong Guk

Gotgan by Lee Jong Guk creates harmony among seasonal ingredients to present dishes showcasing the unique characteristics of Korean cuisine. The rich flavoring comes from avoiding artificial seasonings and instead selecting various pickled vegetables made through soy sauce and soybean paste that have been fermenting for over thirty years. Gotgan by Lee Jong Guk operates in the same building as the Korean cuisine buffet Sadaebujip Gotgan.
