Four Seasons Hotel Seoul

Through Feb. 28: In celebration of Valentine’s Day, Four Seasons Hotel Seoul presents a Celebration Package promising romantic memories for couples and a Romance Cake to be shared between lovers.
The Celebration Package includes a one-night stay in a room of choice, Four Seasons silver and gold balloons, a seasonal cake handcrafted by the Hotel’s pastry tea, access to a Korean Sauna for two worth 110,000 won ($86), and daily breakfast for two at the Hotel’s buffet restaurant, The Market Kitchen. The package is available throughout the year, starting from 660,000 won per night in a Deluxe King room, excluding 10 percent tax.
Confections by Four Seasons, located on the hotel’s lobby floor, presents an eye-catching, red heart-shaped cake fit for Valentine’s Day. As a rose is the representative flower of romance, “Romance Cake” is inspired by the red color of the rose and made with almond sponge, strawberry mousse, and litchi jelly sandwiched in between. The cake is topped off with rose mousse and luxurious, edible gold leaf flakes. Prices start at 29,000 won and go up to 90,000 won.

Through March 26:  Four Seasons Hotel Seoul's authentic Cantonese Chinese restaurant, "Yu Yuan," presents "Weekend Champagne and Dim Sum Brunch," where you can taste authentic Cantonese dim sum with champagne every weekend, prepared by the hotel's dim sum chef Jia Wen Li, who has more than 20 years of experience.
Yu Yuan's "Weekend Champagne and Dim Sum Brunch" features Hong Kong's unique food culture, "yamcha," which primarily means enjoying a variety of food with tea for breakfast and lunch, including dim sum, with friends or family. However, as the popularity of dim sum has grown over tea, yamcha now means a meal with dim sum.
"Dim sum is a symbol of Hong Kong culture and does not simply mean dumplings,” said Li. “A relaxed afternoon is like the peace of your mind, dim sum with drinks is a handful of rest. I hope guests can experience real rest and reminisce about their trip to Hong Kong while enjoying traditional Hong Kong dim sum and the creative dim sum in Yu Yuan's own style with champagne.”
The weekend Dim Sum Brunch allows you to enjoy six different styles of dim sum and Yu Yuan's representative Cantonese cuisine. Marinated cold jellyfish in a special sauce made with Chinese black vinegar is served as an appetizer. Two traditional dim sum, Crystal Shrimp Har Gow and Pan-fried Pork and Leek Dumpling are also served, followed by four creative dim sum dishes: Sichuan-Style Siu Mai with spicy flavor; Ginseng Xiao Long Bao in Shanghai Style containing healthy meat juice with ginseng; Fried Chicken and Mushroom Sticky Rice Dumpling with a chewy and crispy texture; and Pork Spring Roll. After these, Cantonese-style Braised Fish Maw Soup, cooked with one of the top ingredients used in Cantonese cuisine — fish maw and shitake mushroom, and Chili Garlic Shrimp Stir-Fry with sweet and spicy flavors are served. Honey Bread with assorted seasonal fruits, paired with coffee or tea, is then served for dessert. The weekend Dim Sum Brunch is priced at 160,000 won per person.
Champagne Pairing, exquisitely paired with dim sum to create a perfect harmony of tastes, is also available. A glass of each Ruinart Blanc de Blancs and Ruinart Rose adds a touch of elegance and sophistication and "Veuve Clicquot" brings a taste of freshness to the menu. It is priced at 100,000 won.
The Weekend Dim Sum Brunch is available from 11:30 a.m. to 14:30 p.m. every weekend, and the course costs 160,000 won per person, plus 100,000 won for three glasses of champagne pairing.
