South African soul food in Seoul

November 25, 2016

We’re back for another trip around the world to find the best South African grub on the globe.  This week we’re making a stop in the Republic of Korea to sample the delicious food of Braai Republic in Seoul.

Restaurant of the week: Braai Republic

Braai Republic, as you can guess, is a South African restaurant serving traditional saffa food in the Republic of Korea. The restaurant opened doors to the public in 2011 and ever since they’ve become a favourite stomping ground for South African expats, locals and other meat-lovers.

The aim of the restaurant is to bring folks together around a ‘barbecue’ – or rather, to create a space which is socially cohesive, warm and welcome. They showcase South African culture including rugby jerseys signed by the coach of the national team, lively music and have a massive zebra pelt on display.

The menu includes:

  • Meat platter
  • Lamb chops
  • Karoo surf and turf
  • Prawns with green salad
