This restaurant is specialized in boeddhist temple kitchen. I was invited here by some very nice Korean business partners for a lovely dinner. Our group was assigned a separate room, which was really convenient. We sampled traditional dishes in the way the monks would eat them. Monks, of course are vegetarians, so most of the dishes were vegetarian or vegan. Since the Koreans who invited us where afraid, we wouldn’t have enough to eat with only vegetables, they also ordered some salmon and galbi.
I really enjoyed that I could taste traditional temple food, although I have to admit I missed the spices in the food. Since monks prefer their food as pure as possible, they hardly add spices. Every dish was prepared with great care and beautifully presented. I especially loved the lotus flower japchae, but the fried ginseng really wasn’t my cup of tea. A really unforgettable experience!
