Who wouldn’t like steak? Nobody except vegetarians. Here is my steak praise: Steak is the joy of life and love. It brings peace. All who are weary, come to the steak house.
Here is my list of the top three steak houses in Seoul.
This is an italian restaurant plus steak house. You can choose from various types of course meals or just steak. They do not have dry-aged steak, but only fresh ones. The one in the first picture is a steak made from Korean top-class beef and the one in the second picture is Spanish Iberico pork raised and fed with acorns.
The beef steak was so tender and heavenly-tasting. The quality of the meat itself was so amazing that any other seasoning was not needed. The pork was a little oily but the sour cabbage under the pork helped with the greasiness. I liked the beef better though.
One more thing, they have two wine connoisseurs who can recommend/find the best wine for you.
Price: Beef tenderloin steak 53,000KRW / Iberico pork steak 49,000KRW
Address: 서울 강남구 언주로30길 26 타워팰리스 1층 (1st floor, Tower Palace, 26, Eonju-ro 30-gil, Gangnam-gu, Seoul)

2. Steki (스테키)- Itaewon, Seoul
This is the steak house which sells both fresh and dry-aged ones. You order by grams and the order could be made from 200g. They have different types of meat like tenderloin, sirloin, ribeye, and T-bone. I had the 300g of dry-aged sirloin and all the meats in this restaurant are made from Korean cows.
Because it is dry-aged, it has so much beef stock which makes the taste rich. I had medium-rare steak as the waiter recommended, and it was very tender. However, I felt that 300g was quite a lot for me. At the end, I couldn’t finish it because the beef stock made my stomach feel greasy.
Still, I would say this was one of the best steaks in my life 🙂
Price: Sirloin dry-aged steak 24,000KRW for 100g
Address: 서울 용산구 회나무로25길 1 (1, Hoenamu-ro 25-gil, Yongsan-gu, Seoul, Korea)

3. Ca’ del lupo (까델루뽀) – Jongno, Seoul
This place is close to Gyeongbokgung station. This is also an Italian restaurant where you can have pastas too. You can only order from different courses. I got a dinner course meal and chose a fresh medium sirloin as the main menu. It was fine but I wished I had had the medium rare. The sauces were whole grain mustard and sour sauce. Both went well with the steak.
Price: Lunch B 43,000 KRW / Dinner B 82,500 KRW
Address: 서울 종로구 자하문로16길 5-5 (5-5, Jahamun-ro 16-gil, Jongno-gu, Seoul, Korea)
