Premium Food Boutique, Gourmet 494 A place with Grocerantconcept experiencing world’s food cultures

Gourmet 494 is a space for food, entertainment and communication, built on the concept of “grocerant” (grocery + restaurant) for the first time in Korea where groceries (food ingredients) and restaurants (food and beverages) come together in one place.

It is the best place to visit for gourmets who are looking to taste the best that Seoul has to offer. For the first time in Korea, Gourmet 494 introduced the smart finder system, a location-based service enabling visitors to receive the food they ordered brought to their tables. In an effort to actively strengthen its communication with customers, Gourmet 494 also offers the “buy big” service, by which large-sized products are brought straight to the counter, in addition to opening the “cut and bake” corner for the first time in Korea, where sweet potatoes and other vegetables are steamed on the spot to offer more convenience. Its professional concierge also offers consultations for gifts, delivery and catering services.


Gourmet 494 PB, products carefully selected by Galleria, represents the pride of Gourmet 494 which aims to provide only the best to its customers and pursues uncompromising quality as the most important value.
