A local chef has found success with his chain of fantastic Japanese diners. Shokuji needs to be on your Pyeongtaek bucket list!

If you love Japanese food, you are going to love Shokuji. This stylish Japanese diner celebrates design and flavor to create a dining experience that goes beyond just what’s on your plate. The sashimi salmon bowl and tempura bowl are the two dishes we can’t stop ordering.

I met the founder and head chef at Shokuji nearly 10 years ago when he was developing his skills at restaurants around Pyeongtaek. I was obsessed with his sushi at the time. Then, one day he was no longer behind the sushi bar. I was a little heartbroken.

Jump forward about a year later and I’m checking out a hot-hot-hot new spot in Seojeongri that is blowing up Instagram. I walk in and SURPRISE! My fav chef is behind the counter of his stunning new restaurant. I knew from the first bite that he had created something amazing.

Soon they were opening up a new branch of Shokuji in Sosabeol. They didn’t stop there, new Shokujis keep opening. The latest one opened near AK Plaza and offers the same type of beautiful setting and exceptional food that we have come to rely on at all Shojuki locations.

It’s incredibly cool to see a local chef having such success in our area. Get out there and support a true hometown favorite, Shokuji! Each spot is perfect for date night. Keep in mind these spots are VERY popular so you can often have a solid 30-40 minute wait for seating, especially on weekends or holidays. They also have a break time from 3-5 at all locations.

Shokuji Godeok coming soon!!!
