Michelin awards three stars to La Yeon in Seoul

The Shilla Seoul's flagship restaurant, La Yeon, has been awarded three Michelin stars for a third consecutive year. A traditional Korean fine-dining restaurant, La Yeon offers authentic flavours and creative interpretations of time-honoured recipes.

Since opening in 2013, La Yeon has earned global attention for its service, ambience, and sophisticated menu. It was the first Korean restaurant in the world to receive a Michelin three-star rating. The restaurant has distinguished itself with premium, Korean-grown ingredients procured from exclusive sources around the country. The menu at La Yeon refreshes every three months to reflect the changing seasons and produce, placing emphasis on freshness and provenance.

La Yeon’s three-star recognition is a testament to the team’s pursuit of culinary excellence. “It is an exceptional honour to be acknowledged by the Michelin Guide for a third consecutive year,” says Executive Chef Kim Sung Il.
