Hg2 : The Hedonist


All new Shilla is Baku’s first and only Korean restaurant. Located in a large, purpose built sandstone pagoda, the original plan was for an exclusively Korean menu. However, as Bakuvian tastes are not always so adventurous, it was decided to include some Thai and Japanese dishes too, to guide the diner in. All the food is good and innovative – the sandwich maki from thernsushi list being a case in point – but it is in the Korean food that the Thai chef, who cut his teeth at a Korean place in Bangkok, really excels. The kimchi are intensely spicy, sweet, savoury and sour; the pajeon pancake, meltingly tasty; while, come the main course, it is hard to look past the Korean barbecue – choice cuts of meat and veg to griddle at your table under a steelrnextractor hood, that marries perfectly with the restaurant’s clean-lined design.
