Mad For Garlic

1579 Wishlisted
Mad for Garlic is Korea’s first garlic-themed Italian restaurant. The unique concept made its debut in 2001 through Mad for Garlic’s first restaurant in Apgujeong-dong, an affluent entertainment and residential district in southern Seoul. With its unique and innovative menu with garlic-specialized Italian cuisine and an excellent selection of wines, Mad for Garlic soon became one of Korea's most popular restaurant chains. Rather than having a central kitchen system, at Mad for Garlic, the entire cooking process starts with raw materials in the kitchen of each branch to bring fresh food to the table. In 2013, Mad for Garlic was voted by Korea Times and Korea Herald as the Best Performing Italian Restaurant concept in Korea. Currently, there are 40 branches in Korea, two branches in Hong Kong and one in Singapore.

From the Burpple community

$25, Seafood pasta with a spicy kick! Seafood is decent, squid is soft and not chewy. Prawns are but small though. Finished the whole plate. Will reorder this dish.

This was our first experience at Mad for Garlic and we finally tried it using the Burpple Beyond 1-1 deal. $25 for this dish. Steak was abit chewy, otherwise pasta was great. We finished the whole plate. Suitable for kids as well (minus the steak).

Tasty - shrimps, diced pineapple and garlic went well with the sweet sauce and the crust was also thin and not crispy. Enjoyed the mix of crunchy garlic chips and softer roasted garlic chunks in the pizza.

Tripe Garlic Seafood pasta was really shiok, not too spicy despite having 2 chilli sign on the menu. It’s another interesting twist to pasta. Crab and Lobster was creamy, but not gelat.

Ordered two pastas: triple garlic seafood pasta and garlic carbonara

Triple garlic seafood pasta came first. This dish is so good. Suits korean palate really well. Its spicy and not oily at all. My friend and I cleared this dish so fast. Definitely recommend.

The garlic carbonara came later and maybe because we ate the dish that had strong taste, carbonara tasted a bit bland to us. It was not cheesy enough.

I come here often so I recommend other dishes like garlic snowing pizza and garlic sizzling rice. These are my favs.

The carbonara was alright, a bit expensive for the average taste. Very creamy though, so if you’re a fan of thick creamy carbonara, you might like this one!
