The story goes that Gangnam’s Mercado is the Brazilian churrascaria that started the whole trend in Seoul, the place everyone else tries to emulate. It’s got Brazilian chefs in the kitchen preparing the meat, sauces, and salads, which are all very authentic. They have a great wine list of South American and Italian reds as well, so be sure to get something bold to go with the endless servings of rump steak, sirloin, garlic beef, pork belly, chicken hearts, and more.
