Handmade Pizza & Craft Beer; Nothing Better
After hiking around the portion of the Seoul Fortress Wall just behind Gyeongbukgung Palace the other day, my friend and I headed back to the subway station but not before stopping for some grub. As we headed back to the Gyeongbukgung Subway Station a small alley with people coming and going caught our eye and we decided to see what it had to offer. This alley had a rather eclectic selection with everything from expensive jeon (Korean veggie pancakes) and makkoli joints to grilled meat, pizza and chicken restaurants. There was pretty much something for everyone and since it was lunch hour the popular establishments of course had lines spilling into the street. After a once through, we opted for this little pizza “shack” called Beezza and got the last table in the place and were really quite pleasantly surprised.
We opted for the spring spinach pesto pizza and the apple Gorgonzola pizza with a Caesar salad and two dark ales. The dough was perfect, the toppings were ample and the salad dressing was adequate, none of that sweet Korean version of what we call a salad dressing. For the size of the pizza, we thought the prices were great and we were definitely full after sharing the lot.
After getting a card from them, I was stoked to see that there is another branch of this restaurant near my house in Yeonnam-dong. Check out the map below for the location near Gyeongbukgung, but if you’re heading to Hongdae and what some of this good stuff, check out their Facebook page for more info on their other location.
