The Korean Restaurant Guide 2012, Five European Countries, aims to reveal the many qualities of Korean cuisine to Europeans who value tradition and history and seek healthier dietary lifestyles.
The Five European Countries smartphone application guide presents a detailed list of the finest Korean restaurants in the five Western European countries of Austria, Belgium, Denmark, the Netherlands and Switzerland. It is the foundation’s most ambitious effort to promote outstanding Korean restaurants outside of Korea and share authentic flavors and style of Korean cuisine with people of other cultures. The smartphone application reviews Korean restaurants presently operating in ten cities of five countries, namely Vienna of Austria, Brussels of Belgium, Copenhagen of Denmark, Amsterdam and Rotterdam of the Netherlands, and Geneva, Zurich, Interlaken, Basel, and Lucerne of Switzerland. A total of 34 restaurants made it to the final selection based on evaluations of food, service, hygiene, and décor by a group of Korean and local food critics and restaurant specialists. From fine-dining hanjeongsik (Korean table d’hôte) restaurants to convivial eateries offering homemade dishes based on family secret recipes and neighborhood hangouts where diners knock back glasses of traditional Korean liquors, this smartphone application covers a wide selection of restaurants with detailed descriptions and photos for readers to choose from based on individual preferences.
We hope this smartphone application will encourage more food lovers to seek out Korean culinary destinations and to experience the charm of Korean cuisine.
