Enjoy tasty Italian-Korean fusion at Querencia

If you like Italian food, try ‘Querencia’ on the first floor of the Fly Station building. The newly opened Querencia serves up not only “authentic Italian,” but also “Italian-Korean fusion.”

Kim Yongho, head chef at the restaurant, has over 20 years of experience cooking at Italian restaurants in Italy and it really shows.

“We have our own kitchen garden to use fresh herbs and vegetables,” Kim said. “Unlike a franchise restaurant, we make and use our own sauces and sausage.”

I went for the basic Margherita Fresca Pizza (around $17) with prosciutto served with mozzarella and topped with basil and olives. The prosciutto had a nice buttery texture and the pizza crust was crisp on the outside and soft inside. I could taste the freshness of the sauce, and the basil and mozzarella added the right amount of flavor. I loved the fresh mozzarella most and it went perfectly with the local craft beers Querencia serves up cold.

The diving left me hungry, so I also ordered a carbonara pasta half-order. Topped with a cloud egg, the creamy and saucy pasta did not disappoint. At the end of my meal, my plates were wiped clean. The chef’s experience and use of fresh ingredients was evident in every bite I took. The menu prices won’t break the bank and the helpings are plentiful, so when you’re done jumping, land yourself at Querencia.
