Bella Tortilla

315-8, Sangsu-dong, Mapo-gu Seoul Korea

070.8779.6675 / 010.7119.6675 Contact Person: Jong Min Kan

No oven, no gas flame grill, no tables inside, no wait staff–but plenty of taste.  Bella Tortilla is a one man show, run on the cusp of Hong Dae by Chef Jong Min Kan.  Like its namesake, the Tortilla Wraps, the interior is tight and tidy, with adventurous music ranging from Korean reggae, to Korean hardcore death rock to Spanish and Mexican-influenced salsa.

Try the grilled tortilla wrap with pepper chicken, packed with cheese, lettuce, tomato, jalapenos, home-made salsa and sour cream.   The menu also features wraps with chili con carne, black tiger prawns, grilled rump steak, “surf n turf” and two types of vegetarian offerings.  (Make sure you ask for veggies on the outside if you don’t like warm tomatoes and lettuce).

Prices range from 4,000 to 6,500 won, and Coronas are 5,000, making this the perfect pit stop for two before a night out in Hong Dae.  The set menu includes fries and a drink for an extra 500 won.

Directions:

Take subway Line 6 to Sangsu Station (상수역), and go out of Exit 1.  Walk straight around 200-250 meters, around 1 block and a half up the road.   Look for the round yellow sign and orange awning.
