What to Expect When You Visit Okin Pizza in Seoul
Seochon Village is often associated with renovated hanoks, traditional literature, and storefront signs in hangul, but local foodies know that it’s also home to one of the most popular pizza spots in Seoul: Okin Pizza (옥인피자). In the last 2 years, I’ve seen a lot of positive posts and reviews about this restaurant — it’s been featured in Mangoplate’s best listicles since 2016! — but it’s only this year that I got to visit. I went with 2 of my friends on the day before chuseok, so we didn’t have to wait to be seated. As expected, the restaurant is a small redesigned hanok, which I think tourists especially will appreciate!
As I walked inside Okin Pizza, I quickly noticed modern finishes that actually complemented the structure. The friendly staff then led us to the only dining space available, which is a small room with just one table for 4 (great for social distancing!). Since I booked Okin Pizza online, I skipped the menu and showed the voucher for the Sweet Pumpkin Cheese Pizza + Ade Set that I got.
In just around 5 minutes, the homemade Ricotta Cheese Salad and drinks (lemonade and grapefruit) came out. The salad was fresh, flavorful, and light to the taste, and it had plenty of Ricotta, which really made me happy since. Just as we were finishing up, the staff came with our large Sweet Pumpkin Cheese Pizza, which, for first impressions, looked appetizing and smelled great!
As I took photos of the main dish, I really could tell that this is, indeed, a gourmet pie. It’s a double-crust pizza, and you’ll immediately notice the oozing pumpkin filling. The crusts (top and bottom) were thin and flaky, and the sweet pumpkin and cheese filling was just the right balance of sweet and savory. All of us at the table were really satisfied!
