Garosugil is located in Sinsa-dong, Gangnam. Many foreign travelers seem to visit here more and more. Along with Apgujeong close to Garosugil, it is well-known for hundreds of plastic surgery hospitals and you can easily see foreigners wearing masks which is most likely a sign that they got plastic surgery.
I love going here because it has lots of nice restaurants with delicious food. Here is my list of must-go Garosugil restaurants.
1. Patio 42 (파티오42)
I just love being here. Lights, music, and great food make me happy 🙂 It is an Italian restaurant where you can taste legit Italian dishes and Koreanized ones. Both are delicious.
What I had was rucola prosciutto pizza and basil pesto pasta with grilled chicken breast. Rucola and prosciutto hams go super well and the dough was finely baked. The basil pesto from the pasta smelled good and the chicken breast was moist.
Price: Both were 19,000 KRW. Other dishes cost around this much also.

This place is heaven for vegetarians and healthy eaters. It has six types of awesome salads and other healthy side dishes. What I had was Do Bowl, which was made with grilled tofu and other types of vegetables and grains, and Guaca Green, which was made with Avocado, grilled chicken breast, and greek yogurt.
I realized that salads could make me happy. It was much more tasty than I thought. Juices are 100% fresh juice without water, sugar, or additives. The spinach yogurt blew my mind. I thought it sounded weird at first and hesitated to try it, but I was wrong. You never know before you try!
Price: Salads- 11,500KRW / Pressed juice- 7,500 KRW/ Yogurt Bowl-5,800KRW
Address: 서울 강남구 압구정로4길 31 (31, Apgujeong-ro 4-gil, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, Korea)
