Song Jook Heon (송죽헌)
Hanjeongsik is the most lavish and luxurious type of Korean cuisine. A huge variety of smaller side dishes are combined with a main dish of meat, fish or a hot pot (depending on the season) to create an extravagant banquet. This originated in the royal palaces and aristocratic homes of ancient Korea, and these refined origins are still evident in the sheer abundance of dishes on offer in a traditional Hanjeongsik, which can be up to thirty. Seoul’s Song Jook Heon is a well-established purveyor of the Hanjeongsik tradition and offers a wonderful introduction to the more opulent aspects of Korean cuisine.
