The Korean Restaurant Guide 2012, Tokyo aims to reveal the many qualities of Korean cuisine to the Japanese people who value a balanced and healthy diet, as well as people of other nationalities.
This smartphone application is the foundation’s most ambitious effort to promote the finest Korean restaurants outside of Korea, and share authentic flavors and style of Korean cuisine with people of other cultures. First published in April 2011, the Korean Restaurant Guide 2011, Tokyo reviewed 34 Korean restaurants opera- ting in Tokyo based on evaluations of food, service, hygiene, and décor by a group of Korean and local food critics and restaurant specialists. The Korean Restaurant Guide 2012, Tokyo is an update to the 2011 edition on the occasion of the publication of similar restaurant guidebooks for countries in Western Europe. More content and photos were added through on-site coverage. Three of the restaurants featured in this guidebook-Sennohana, Matsunomi (one star), and Moranbong (two stars)-recently joined the selection of the 2012 edition of the Michelin restaurant guide for Japan’s capital.
We hope this smartphone application will encourage more local food lovers to seek out the high standards of food and services offered by Korean restaurants in Japan and to experience the charm of Korean cuisine.
