I have lived in Seoul for a year now and am surprised that nobody, including the locals, can't make a firm recommendation for dining out with out-of-town visitors. From bibimbap & kimbap to galbi, bulgogi & jjigae, most of what the restaurants serve (from fine dining to hole-in-the-wall) all taste the same and served with the same kim chi and chan dishes. I'm originally from Hawaii, so much of the Korean food I know are considered Korean-Hawaiian fusion dishes and they taste AAA-MAZING!!! Does anybody have any good recommendations for best Korean-style restaurants in Seoul? The only advice I ever got was to look for signs which post HANU/HANOO in Hangeul.
