Hongdae Hotspots: Taverna de Portugal

by Joe McPherson
Korea Tourism Organization

Yes, there is Portuguese food in Seoul. Run by an expat from Portugal and his Korean wife, this quaint and cozy inn boasts dishes that have been making the highly picky and ornery Seoul foodie community swoon. Their specialty is Piri Piri grilled chicken, a spicy chicken dish borne from the Portuguese settlements in Africa.

The dish causing the most buzz is the Francesinha, a northern Portuguese sandwich with roasted meat, sausage and cheese swimming in a tomato beer sauce.
