Zelen, Bulgarian Food in Itaewon and Hannam

(pictures and map coming soon)

Zelen is awesome. The menu is so extensive it's difficult to narrow your selection down to just one dish. If you go with a large party, Mihal may accommodate you by offering a price fixed menu. For 26,000 won our party was able to sample a smorgasborg of food. Appetizers included bread as well as grilled eggplant with cheese, grilled mushrooms with cheese and salad, and grilled peppers stuffed with, you guessed it, cheese. The grilled peppers were the most popular for our group. The stuffing was delicious and they were served atop a homemade yogurt dill sauce. For the main course we received a sampling of many of their popular entrees. A platter of skewered meats and veggies, ribs, and stuffed chicken with a side of their very popular spinach stuffed chicken. Although our vegetarian friends found the menu a little meat-heavy the cooks had no problem substituting vegetarian and vegan dishes for them. We enjoy visiting Zelen for large parties; however it's also a great place to take a date. They also offer couples sets that are reasonably priced and will be certain to have you looking forward to a second date.

Hannam Location: Go to the main Hannam bus stop. Across the street from GS Gas and KFC, go down the street between Red Mango and Cafe Slow. Not far up the street you will see the twinkling lights in Zelen on your right.

Itaewon Location: Leave Itaewon station exit 1. Take your first right and then your first left. At the end of the street turn right and go up the stairs. Zelen is at the top of the stairs on the right.
