Namsan Restaurant : HanCook | Review

You can enjoy the beautiful scenery from N Seoul Tower while having Korean fine cuisine, only at HanCook. 

One side of the wall is clear window, so you can enjoy the view.

Salad, seasoned shrimp, Korean sausage, bulgogi, and more! Made from fresh ingredients these are menus that foreigners can enjoy, so anyone can have a good meal.

On the other side, Korean traditional desserts are prepared. If you do not look for it, you might not have tasted them before. 

There are various kinds of desserts, and you can enjoy each and everyone of them! 

 I had hard time choosing which menu to taste. You might worry that in a buffet, overall quality of the food might be lower. You don't need to worry about that at HanCook.

Each menu was full of taste and exquisite. They must have put their heart into the food.

For desserts I had fruits, tteok (rice cake),  sweet been jelly, and honey pastry. Tteoks were really chewy. They all taste different according to the different colored pastes, so pick your favorite one!

If you pay additional ₩10,000 you can add 1 main menu. Buffet was great, but if you want something even more special you try the main menus.

Dinner menu I ordered was Roasted ribs seasoned with multiple spices, and Grilled Toothfish seasoned with miso soy bean paste. The ribs were full of flavor from the soy sauce with smoky taste, sweet and soft. It was even better with  seasoned scallions!

Grilled Toothfish was really soft, well seasoned and tasted really great. Put a drop of lemon and it will taste even better. 

If you wish to have a special time at N Seoul Tower with great food, visit HanCook!
