Hubby and I went out on the town last night for a unforgettable dinner at the revolving restaurant, n-Grill, on top of Seoul Tower. We don’t get out much with two little ones so this was definitely squeal worthy!
The Seoul Tower is located on top of Namsan Mountain so it has a fantastic view of the city spanning from the mountains to the Han River.
Here’s a picture of the octopus. I’m not usually a fan of squishy food, but this was divine. Honest! Can you see the tentacles?
The chocolate raspberry cake was heavenly. Don’t you love how they smeared the chocolate with a pansy? A trick I’m going to have to remember.
Another neat piece of history lies on top of the tower, the Beacon Lighthouse. The tops of appointed mountains were made into beacons all along the coasts of Korea.
Each night, the beacon master would light the beacon with fire to let the next mountain peak know that all was safe along the coasts.
The beacons would work their way all the way to Seoul and then alert the king. If the fire blazed bright on Namsan Mountain, all would know that the land was safe.
