bärlin Deutsches Wirtshaus, Seoul, Korea

baerlin Deutsches WirtshausAfter 1.5 months of traveling, Leibspeise finally found a German restaurant that is different and doesn’t thrive on the Bavaria theme: bärlin Deutsches Wirtshaus in Seoul, Korea. baerlin is a modern German Wirtshaus, featuring a nice and simple interior with large black and white photographs of the Brandenburg Gate and the Oberbaum Bridge. The wide windows make the venue bright and there is also a beer garden.

It truly was a delight to browse through baerlin’s comprehensive German menu. Simply the fact that bärlin distinguishes between Kartoffelsalat from North and South Germany is an indication that baerlin serves food from ALL areas in Germany. By the way, Leibspeise (from Southern Germany, but not Bavaria) is open minded and accepts that people add mayonnaise to potato salad, but clearly Schwaebischer Kartoffelsalat is the best.

Leibspeise sampled a Lunch special at bärlin (Pork Wellington) and was delighted both with taste and presentation. Also the Nuernberger (made at the baerlin) and the potato-cucumber salad were truly nice. The Rote Grueze was the perfect finish for an already great lunch. Not only Leibspeise enjoyed their lunch at bärlin, but also three local Korean ladies indulged in a Schweinshaxe accompanied with real German Weizenbier (see picture below).

You can find bärlin in the Sommerset Palace building, close to the subway station Anguk.

Leibspeise’s verdict: a true gem due to its modern German look as well as the yummy holistic German cuisine.

    Die Bratwurst ist echt gut, vllt sogar besser als in Berlin! Die Bratkartoffeln waren auch ein traum. Glaub ein besuch ist ein Muss wenn man Länger in Seoul ist!

    The best Bratwurst i’ve ever eaten outside of thuringia!!! (including all the “Thüringer Rostbratwurst” in Berlin (City)

    Extrem teuer und kaltes Ambiente. Hier muss man sogar noch nachher die Mehrwehrtssteuer extra bezahlen. Wucher! Schweinshaxe fuer 62 EURO ist uebertrieben. Hannam Dong – “Deutsches Haus” ist guenstiger.

    Have only been once, but really enjoyed it. Not cheap, but worth the money. Food is nearly authentic and atmosphere is trendy Korean. Beer is what you’d expect. Highly recommend.
