We came in to the Myeongdong branch for dinner because of the TripAdvisor reviews we had seen. Service of the food was efficient, but the waiters told us we should serve ourselves water from a container on the counter. Ok. We asked them for a...More

While a little on the pricier side, School Food offers some delicious fusion takes on Korean dishes. I ordered the Carbonara Tteok-bokki made with special soy sauce. My husband had the Spam mari (similar to Japanese sushi). Both our orders were pretty big, so we...More

Some said the price was a bit on the high side. For me it is just okay given the amount of serving of the mari. It is 18 sliced sushi pieces for an order for krw8000. There was a promotion where i got a free...More

Thank you for your review. Mozzarella Spam Egg Mari is the most popular dish in Schoolfood. It is good for sharing with 2 persons then you can taste more dishes.

Carbonara ddeokbokki is great choice if you do not like spicy food. Actually many foreigners and ladies like it. Mozzarella Spam Egg Mari is our best of best menu since School food launched. Thank you for your valuable recommendation.

The restaurant didn't look at all like a school canteen which I had half expected because of the name. It looked just like the other restaurants. What I found different was that we had to write down our own orders. We appointed the one with...More

Thank you for your visiting and detailed review. Many people have misunderstanding about our restaurant because of its name "Schoolfood". However we serve fusion Asian food based on Korean food. Many visitors love Mari(small sized Kimbap), Tteokbokki, many different styled rice and noodle.

shopping and eating to new heights, with hundreds of
shops, restaurants, and cafes all stacked on top of
one another. The rise in popularity of Korean
cosmetics, fashion, and more has made this area a
must-see for visitors who come and marvel at
Myeongdong’s often frenetic pace and energy. Lotte and
