The interior designing at Chung Dam Korean Restaurant

To tell you honestly, I’ve been to a lot of Korean restaurants since I’m a fan of Korean barbecue and samgyupsal meat too. But of all those restaurants I’ve been, Chung Dam Korean Restaurant’s interior designing stands out of them all.

The usual look of a Korean restaurant is just a simple room will painted walls of anything Korean-related arts and stuff. Tables, chairs and built-in charcoal grill with ventilators in the middles and corners of the restaurant then that’s about it. Chung Dam brings to you a whole new level of dining. When they say “high-end Korean restaurant“, they really live up to what they describe their restaurant to be.

As you enter, you’ll immediately see the restaurant’s logo which is a diamond. Then a staircase follows behind it where you’ll probably wonder if you’re heading to a Korean restaurant or a fancy hotel. Honestly, I had second thoughts if we were entering the right place. There was a chandelier on top of the stairs and the walls were painted blue and gold linings. Before finally entering inside the dining area, there’s a long oval table with sanitizes and pamphlets of Chung Dam restaurant.

Inside the restaurants, I noticed that that the tables were made out of marble stone and the chairs were soft-cushioned chairs. It doesn’t end there though, the plates and cutlery were gold colored which added to a more fancy style and vibe inside Chung Dam Restaurant.

Also, I noticed one more detail inside the restaurant. The Hwayo Premium Soju bottles were placed in the windows as a design which made it look classy. These Soju bottles came all the way from Korea and are considered high-end soju in Korea too.

Hwayo Premium Soju is considered one of Korea’s most famous and high-end soju brand. You can purchase directly in the restaurant if you find yourself dining in Chung Dam restaurant one of these days. And like I’ve said above, the Hwayo Premium Soju bottles are used by the restaurant as a creative decoration placed by the windows of the restaurant.
