A restaurant’s atmosphere sets the stage. Music, lighting, spacing and artwork together create its own unique atmosphere.
Today, I’m going to introduce my second home in Paris: Bekseju Village. This lovely authentic Korean bistro named after famous Korean wine makes me feel like home.
The moment you walk in, you can see a traditional Korea artwork on the wall and a long wooden table with metal chopsticks and tableware neatly arranged on the table. The lights covered with silk cloth and a slow K-pop music add warm aura. Then a warm greeting of hostess is followed and altogether brings a “wow” experience just by walking into the restaurant.
In the kitchen, a duo of chef comes directly from Korea and prepares great classics of Korean cuisine including Kimchi pancake, Bulgogi and Jjigge. The dishes are mainly prepared with Gochujang (chili paste) and Kanjang (soy sauce).
With spicy food, my recommendation would be to order a bottle of Bekseju. Bekseju is a traditional Korean wine from fermented raw rice with herbs and spices, which also helps with digesting spicy food.
Whoever wants to try authentic Korean food or wants to get a glimpse of Asian atmosphere, go to Bekseju Village! This is a perfect place for you. Remember, good place means good time!
