-Seongsu, Seongdong, Seoul, Republic of Korea-
Dochi is an Italian restaurant chain. Currently 6 branches in Seoul. Specializes in Napoli-style pizza.
The pizza was good. The crust was chewy and tasty, further enhanced by the oven char. The sauce was fine. The cheese was a bit clunky; as I was later passing by the pizza station, I noticed a container filled with what looked like preshredded mozzarella from a bag. A decent effort overall.
Due to a large group having a party on the second floor, the service was absurdly slow. I had to wait over 5 minutes just to be seated, even though only 1 table on the ground floor was occupied. As I could see the pizza station from my table, I estimate that one pizza took nearly 10 minutes to make. In all, 5 minutes waiting to be seated + 30 minutes for 3 prior orders that went out ahead of mine + 10 minutes to make mine, a simple cheese pie = 45 minutes before I got a bite. I didn’t mind, because I had a book and didn’t have anything waiting for me back at the office, but still.
