Steak lovers are celebrating the opening of Wolfgang’s Steakhouse in Seoul last Monday.
Located in the pricey neighborhood of Chungdam-dong, this is the second Wolfgang’s Steakhouse in Asia following Japan. The restaurant will use the same dry aging of 28 days on site meat locker.
I have always complained that Seoul needs a good steakhouse and now it might be the start of a U.S. steak trend in Seoul pending Wolfgang’s success.
It also gives many visitors to Korea a comfort food break from all the spices. The restaurant has two floors with a capacity of 200 persons.
