Restaurant Buzz: April 2016

Bill’s, likely the only spot for modern Aussie cuisine in Seoul, has opened another branch at Gwanghwamun. Breakfast is not something Seoul is known for, but Bill’s offers up some irresistible sandwiches as well as its famous honeycomb butter ricotta hotcakes with banana. Late-risers fear not: Bill’s continues on throughout the day with its breakfast greatest hits and more thanks to one of Seoul’s most thoughtful-yet-affordable menus. Beef shin mole, anyone?

There can never be enough quality sandwiches. Those jonesing for an excellent rendition of bread sliced horizontally and filled with an edible substance should check out Head-Lock in the old Hassdog location in Gyunglidan. These are hefty bites and at 4,000 won, be careful not to bite off the hand that feeds you. Go for the shrimp with beef chili or the original shrimp and mayo.

Speaking of sandwiches, everyone knows Casablanca has some of the best around. But did you know they just added a new shakshuka menu? That’s right. The zesty poached egg dish of Berber origin is now on offer in several different varieties and doled out in a tagine. Enjoy it in their sexy new interior.
