Every dish is so beautiful at this 2 star Michelin contemporary Korean restaurant. I had the Signature Tasting menu and every dish tasted just as good as they looked. And just as surprising as the creations were poetic and 'interactive'. All of the different tastes are very accessible, so don't be scared that the dishes are too exotic, they are not. And the wine pairing is excellent and surprising.
Interior is modern and minimal, but feels very intimate.

I am not used to fine dining but mistakenly entered the restaurant while traveling with a friend of mine. We had a great time at the bar, the taster menu was amazing and the barman was friendly and chill.

I loved the calm of the place. All the staff was very welcoming and really knew about the menu and wine also. I don't drink alcohol so they even paired the food for me with great virgin cocktails! I really loved the experience and the food was amazing.

Jungsik has a superb varied menu. Our amuse bouche contained five small bites that were really, really delicious. We particularly loved the cone of sea urchin and the smoked salmon roe and foie gras mousse were stunning. Octopus dish was absolute perfection - by far the most tender I've ever had. Also, the tuna kim bap was terrific. 5 stars

Four of us had an epiphany-like dinner experience at Jungsik. Amongst us, we have had eons of dining and a myriad of dining experiences. However, to a person we had never had a better dinner than this. From the elegant simplicity of the decor, to the elegant but completely unobtrusive, completely unpretentious service, to the incredible attention to detail, to (finally) the simply amazing precision of symphonic tastes presented, this event was virtually beyond a verbal description. We would go back tomorrow.
