Seoul, the kaleidoscopic capital of South Korea, is a sprawling metropolis where the buzz of high-tech subways and bustling markets meets the majesty of Buddhist temples and sacred palaces. Surrounded by the Sea of Japan and the Yellow Sea, the city is famed for its futuristic buildings and pop culture as well as its diverse local cuisine. From traditional Asian dishes to flavorful international fusions, Seoul is home to a wealth of food spots providing tasty light bites and delicious brunches; here’s some of the best.
The owners of Casablanca Sandwicherie were born and raised in Morocco, and so have a talent for producing the finest Middle Eastern flavors in Seoul. Sandwiches are the speciality here, with the smell of crusty, aromatic bread filling the premises every day. The lentil soup and Moroccan salad are great choices, but the chicken sandwich just can’t be beat: crunchy on the outside, juicy on the inside, full of flavor and spiced just right. The portion sizes here are generous, and prices are among the cheapest for foreign food in the Itaewon area.
