Goraebul Korean Sashimi

Post by Chiefeater Luke Soon

Located in Seoul, Goraebul is renowned for serving some of the freshest and most diverse seafood in the city, including some unique offerings like whale meat. This restaurant is particularly popular among locals seeking a genuine taste of Korean coastal cuisine, though it's essential to note that the menu is entirely in Korean, making it imperative to visit with someone fluent in the language.

Upon entering Goraebul, it becomes immediately clear that the emphasis is on providing an authentic and unfiltered seafood experience. The restaurant specializes in serving thick cuts of fish, catering to Korean preferences and offering a departure from the finer, delicate slices typical of Japanese omakase. Local delicacies like sea squirt and exceptionally large oysters highlight the menu, providing a glimpse into the regional seafood bounty.

One aspect that may require acclimation for international guests is the range of dipping sauces available, which include samjang, gochujang, soy sauce, and a special house dip made from seafood innards — a bold flavour profile that resonates with Korean culinary traditions.

Diners are accommodated in small, intimate rooms, creating a cozy atmosphere that is especially inviting on chilly autumn evenings — a perfect setting to indulge in a seafood feast.

Some standout dishes at Goraebul include the sea squirt, which is best enjoyed by slurping up the entire content and using the husk for a quick soju chaser.

Goose barnacles, often referred to as "turtle feet," present a unique flavour profile when dipped in various seafood sauces.

Seared abalone, served with butter, showcases top-quality ingredients and preparation techniques, offering a familiar choice for those less adventurous.

A highlight of the meal was the crispy fried fish, which was so impeccably prepared that even the bones could be savoured.

Our total bill for three diners came to $350 USD, reflecting excellent value for the abundance of fresh Korean sashimi and seafood delicacies experienced. Goraebul earns a spot as a standing itinerary item for anyone traveling to Seoul, embodying the spirit of Korean coastal cuisine and serving as a culinary destination that satisfies both locals and adventurous visitors alike.
