Wendell and his staff are now making some of the best western food and cocktails in Seoul. His head bartender, Ike, works in collaboration with him. His fiance, Lois, runs the kitchen and does the actual cooking.
Every garnish, every little bit of seasoning, has been obsessed over and experimented with. Tangy chicken wings, savory meatloaf, and al dente cheesy lasagna testify to the care that has gone into the food.
Fine whiskeys and fancy cocktails that one might expect to see more in Apgujeong or Gangnam than the theater district are also stars of the show. Mix & Malt might technically be called a gastropub, but Wendell prefers “dining bar.”
