A Wolfhound burger with an Alley Kat beer is one of the greatest joys in Seoul. The Wolfhound is an Irish pub that has one of the best burgers in Korea. And unlike other more popular establishments, it doesn't empty your bank account. Located in one of Itaewon's back streets, the Wolfhound is known as the less noisy alternative to Gecko's Terrace for those in the know. They've recently gone through renovations and revamped their menu. Still their classics are the best. The fish and chips have gotten praise as the best in town from the executive chef at the W Hotel (who happens to be Irish). The burger was named #1 by Seoul Eats. Their big breakfast is the closest you get in Korea to a full English. The deluxe version includes a coffee with a shot of Irish whisky. The Wolfhound is steadily becoming more popular, so it can sometimes reach Gecko's crowd status. The charm of the pub is on quiet Sunday afternoons and weeknights. It's a great place to catch up with old friends. Oh, and don't let the name and the visuals of the Toad in the Hole scare you off. It's worth a try.
UPDATE: Much time has passed since this review. The Wolfhound has gone through a few stages. It's become more of a meat market than a quiet place to hang out with friends. The interior has seen better days. They finally fixed the missing letter from their sign. Much better food has turned up in the area, but they still are known for good fish and chips, as well as one of the few (if only) places to get Yorkshire pudding.
