The restaurant Korea House run by the Korea Cultural Heritage Foundation in Seoul will serve traditional royal cuisine worth 250,000 won (200 U.S. dollars) from Tuesday.

Restaurant owner Kim Maeng-nyung said yesterday that his establishment will serve a “Daejanggeum (Jewel of the Palace)” full course dinner to help the globalization of Korean food through high-end traditional royal cuisine.

The course was developed by chef Han Bok-ryeo, who is also designated an intangible cultural asset by the government. The menu includes “gujeolpan,” a wrap with nine ingredients inside, “oja” porridge, water kimchi, and other traditional dishes.

“We selected foods befitting the restaurant’s beautiful and attractive atmosphere by properly mixing ingredients and materials in considering yin and yang and the five traditional Korean colors and tastes,” the restaurant said. “We want to create art through food.”
