The Shilla Seoul

Thursday to Saturday: The Shilla once again presents the “Mori Soba” promotion with Guest Master Chef Takahashi Kunihiro, also known as the “God of Soba.” The promotion will be held in the hotel’s buffet restaurant, The Parkview. Unlike typical Korean-style soba, which relies on the sweet taste of the soy-based soup, Takahashi’s soba includes buckwheat, which gives noodles a pale blue-green and light gray color instead of the common dark brown.

Kunihiro has trained more than 1,000 chefs in Japan while making soba for 39 years. This is the second time in two years the chef has come to the Shilla.

The lunch menu is priced at 75,000 won, and the dinner menu at 80,000 won.

All prices are subject to tax and service charge.
