Top 10 Western Food Places That Koreans Love



During my exchange in Korea, I was craving for Western Food. I decided to ask the locals where was their favourite places to have pizzas, burgers, etc. These were their top 10 places.

  1. Brooklyn The Burger Joint

This burger joint has a long waiting line. If you’re coming in for dinner, I suggest you come 1 hour earlier because that’s how long you need to wait, if not longer.

I love the cheeseskirt burger! Since you’re already there and waited so long for a table, why don’t you try other items on the menu as well? The chili chese fries and nutella milkshake with burnt marshmallows are good investments!

  1. Pane Pasta

If you’re extremely hungry and have an appetite for 2-3, do dine at Pane Pasta. These pastas are served in huge bread bowls. Plus, the soup sauces for the pastas are refillable for free.

  1. Brick Oven New York Pizza

You’ll known why this place is famous once you’ve had their GODFATHER pizza.

It’s made with homemade Italian sausage, ground beef, pepperoni, onion, garlic, jalapeño peppers, mozzarella and bony’s special diavlo sauce!

  1. Deli Heinzburg

Some of the locals say that they serve the best sandwiches in Seoul. This deli prides itself in the meats that they stuff in their sandwiches.

I tried the Boiling Cheese and Steamy Beef Sandwich and I have never seen a sandwich being served on top of a steamer before. Two thumbs up for concept!

  1. La Tupina

La Tupina popped out when I tried to search for best places for pasta in Seoul. I tried their Fettucine Granchio and Four Cheese Pasta.

It’s definitely one of the most romantic places in Seoul and you can bring your date there for a beautiful italian treat.

  1. Pizza School

I love Pizza School’s pizzas because not only are they extremely cheap, their portions are HUGE.

The portion might seem small in the photo but 4 of us were struggling to finish the dakgalbi pizza. They’re just really generous with the servings of meat.

  1. Battered Sole

How about some good ol’ British food, mate? Here’s some beer battered cod with triple cooked chips.

  1. Butterfingers

This is not the chocolate candy created by Nestle. Instead, this brunch place serves delectable pancakes and french toasts. I’ll be doing a separate post on brunch places in Seoul.

9. The Flying Pan

The Flying Pan has 3 different outlets and they differentiate themselves by colours. There’s Flying Pan Blue, Flying Pan Red, Flying Pan White. All of them have different menus. Do look out for which menu appeals to you the most.

10. MIES Container

I decided to save this for the last because this restaurant is Korea’s Hooters that caters specially for women. When you walk into this restaurant, hot hunky men would greet you. After you order your dishes, they would put a helmet on your head and that’s the queue number. Interesting concept eh?

The bacon and potato pan cheese, salad spaghetti and BBQ platter were crowded winners amongst the guys and the girls.

Even if you’re only in Seoul for a few days, do give these places a try. It’s definitely worth your time to travel down. If the locals love it, so should you!
