Today Eater heads to Seoul — South Korea’s capital and gateway to the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang — to call out 12 of the buzziest newcomers to Korea’s exploding dining scene. Eater contributor and photographer Matty Kim has kindly offered up his picks of the hottest restaurants of the last year or so. “This marks the second year of Korea’s Michelin Guide, and it may be coincidental, but Korea’s restaurant scene has seen a lot of change over the past two years,” says Kim.
Seoul’s food traditions extend back centuries, from the hearty bowls of seolleongtang (beef bone soup) found in its cozy restaurants to the simple vegan fare of its Buddhist temples. But the dining scene is changing fast in the South Korean capital. Not only are chefs rediscovering — and reinventing — these old-school dishes, but they’re also creating a new modern Korean cuisine that combines traditional ingredients with Western cooking techniques.
Shake Shack is on a mission to conquer the world with crinkle fries, and today marked its entrance into yet another new market: South Korea. A massive crowd of people lined up in anticipation of the burger chain's Friday morning debut in Seoul's Gangnam district, and former Eater intern Matty Kim was on the ground to capture all the action.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
