Parc – Seoulistic

Parc is one of the most famous restaurants in Seoul as they were one of the first to start the Korean home-style cooking trend. The owner of Parc was living in Thailand when he realized how much he had missed his mother’s cooking. When he came back, he teamed up with his mother to create a menu that replicated his childhood meals, and Parc was born.

Most of the meals consist of a healthy bowl of rice (usually cooked with some grains and nuts for added nutrition), a simple bowl of soup you usually can’t find order at any restaurant, and a humble main dish of meat or fish. Of course, you’ll find simple sides such as pan-fried tofu, kimchi, caramelized anchovies and others side dishes that other restaurants find too cumbersome and labor intensive to make. And that’s what makes Parc one of the best restaurants in Seoul. They have good intentions, just like momma does. They make simple, delicious, nutritious and wholesome Korean foods that usually can only be found at home.

The restaurant has great ambiance and is just as warm and loving as its food. The candle lights and amber lightening are great for an intimate night with friends, family or significant others. And while pairing alcohol with Korean home cooking isn’t very common, the ambiance here makes it feel just right. Luckily, they offer a drink menu to enjoy your meal with.
