GraCena, the Filming Location of Chef Jeong-seon’s Restaurant Good Soup
The exterior of GraCena, located in Yeonnam-dong, may look familiar to the K-drama fans. That is because the restaurant has been featured in Temperature of Love as Jeong-seon’s own shop that he set up after his study abroad. GraCena’s menu is quite large, with the most popular item being the craft beer selection that pairs well with pizza. The chef-recommended dish is the Indian curry, which goes surprisingly well with wine. For a romantic date night, guests can enjoy beef steak and wine in a cozy atmosphere created by dim lights and tasteful decoration.
