  1. hi there

    thanks for the informative blog. planning to visit seoul end of this april. juz want to confirm, is this restaurant serves halal food as this restaurant recommended by KTO for Muslim travellers?

    thanks :)

    1. Hello,

      This restaurant doesn't claim itself as halal, but it is featured by KTO because it is a seafood restaurant, and aren't all seafood are halal? :) Have fun for your trip!

    2. we must always ask asians are big fans of dipping fish in alcohol before preparing it and there can be many other non halal ingedients also used in those dishes we just have to ask them to explain how its made .. so lets learn korean hhhhhhhh
