La Belle Maijon (라벨메종), located across the street from Tonkatsu Club, is a cozy Italian restaurant with a warm, wooden, rustic interior. The menu is a simple assortment of pastas, pork cutlets, fried rice dishes, and steak. Although the options are similar to Tonkatsu Club across the street, we prefer the quieter and calmer atmosphere of La Belle Maijon.
The presentation of all the dishes at La Belle Maijon is quite sleek. Most dishes come out nicely arranged, centered on simple white platters. The meals include cream soup, a small side salad, and Korean style dessert (a choice of coffee, tea, or juice). It’s a nice place for a relaxed meal with a small group of 2-4 people, but there is enough space along the side wall to hold larger groups as well. There is also outdoor seating on the deck.
Our favorite dish was the Cheese Pork Cutlet. What set this apart from the average cheese pork cutlet is that the cheese was on top rather than inside the breading. We also enjoyed the meatballs in the Tomato Meatball Spaghetti, the Steak, and the Kimchi Fried Rice.
Directions: From LG Best Shop, cross the street toward the elementary school. Head towards Hi-Mart one block. The restaurant will be on your right, just past the bike shop and across the street from the Tonkatsu Club.
