The Michelin Guide to Seoul 2020 has been announced with the addition of two new two-star restaurants.
Both Gaon and La Yeon retained their three-star status, the two-star category’s ranks swelled to seven with the addition of Mosu and L’Impression.
Mosu, which gained its first star last year garnered a second under chef Ahn Sung-jae, while chef Seo Hyeon-min’s L’Impression enters the list straight away with two stars.
There are seven restaurants to join the list with one Michelin star. French traditions are to the fore with the addition of Auprès (Lee ji-won), Votre Maison (Kim min-jae) and Pierre Gagnaire (Frédéric Eyrier).
Terreno serves up a more international cuisine, rooted in the earthy flavours of herbs and vegetables grown personally by chef Shin Seung-hwan while Australian chef Joseph Lidgerwood’s creativity is recognised at Evett.
Korean cuisine is also represented by chef Jang Jin-mo’s modern interpretation and female chef Cho Eun-hee’s Onjium which is both a research institute on Korean culture and a restaurant.
