Ex-Nobu chef Kang Min-goo runs this Michelin starred restaurant in the uber-posh Cheongdam neighbourhood. Mingles introduces new techniques and sensibilities to time-honoured Korean ingredients and flavours, an approach that manifests itself in dishes like foie gras white kimchi roll and soybean paste crème brûlée. Reservations are highly recommended.
