One of the reasons I love good Japanese restaurants when traveling is the quiet, balanced, peaceful and harmonious settings and menus. Murasaki did not disappoint, the perfect antidote to a long and miserable trip from Dallas aboard an ancient American Airlines vessel. The soothing sounds of flowing water, the quiet, the incredible views of the Seoul Plaza below - all... More

Set in a hard-to-find cul-de-sac street, this place offers really nice Japanese food in a comfortable setting. Only two set menus for dinner. Ask for sake pairing and wow. Really fresh and tasty seafood plus plus. It has less than 10 tables. I would go back again any time when my friends and I have an occasion to celebrate and... More

Staying in Apgujeong / Cheongdam

Neighbourhood Profile
Apgujeong / Cheongdam
Aside from Sinsa / Garosugil, no other area in Seoul connotes the words “luxury” and “fancy” like Apgujeong and Cheongdam. Global luxury brands have set up their flagship stores here, catering to the neighbourhood's mostly affluent residents. It’s also one of the top areas in Korea (some say the world) for cosmetic surgery, attracting hundreds of thousands each year for a little nip or tuck. The other parts of Apgujeong and Cheongdam are mostly lavish residential buildings for some of Seoul’s most affluent alongside extravagant restaurants, bars, spas, and other spots for indulgence. And Cheongdam has long been a bastion for flashy clubs and parties, though in recent years, Itaewon has emerged as a strong challenger to those claims.
