Dinner @ Your Woul Korean

February 9, 2016 in Korean by thywhaleliciousfay

And my search for Korean restaurants in the North doesn’t stop. Keke. After knowing about Your Woul, I have been back there at least three times now.

I would recommend coming here in a group of at least 3 cause the portion for most dishes are pretty big. Or at least for the dishes which interest me. Haha.

One wouldn’t need to make reservation. My friend and I managed to walk in during all 3 visits for dinner. But that may be cause there’s only 2 of us and we came on weekdays. So it’s easier to allocate us seats.

And from the menu (pages 1, 2, 3, 4), we ordered:-

1) Side dishes, Complimentary (above)

2) Janchi guksu, $13.90 (above) – Korean warm noodle soup. Served with egg, kimchi and seaweed, this was surprisingly not too bad. My friend and I liked the noodle. It had that homely feel. So what started off with me only wanting to try one (big) mouthful, soon became half the bowl worth. Haha.


3) Mae-un chicken, $38 (above) – Sweet & spicy chicken. This was so good! Although these were served coated with the sauce, the fried chicken maintained its crispy-ness throughout our hour-long dinner. Meat within was tender and juicy. But my friend and I concluded it was the sauce that was the highlight. I liked that we were also given plastic gloves so that we could eat with our hands without worrying about getting dirty. But of course, the portion was too much for 2. We could only finish two-thirds of it. My brother, who tried the remaining one-third at home the next night, said it was still good and yummy. A must try!

4) Dakgalbi, $39 (2-3 pax) (above) – Spicy stir-fried chicken. Mixed with rice cakes too, this was okie. And if one wants fried rice at additional $6, one would need to leave some sauce for the staff to cook the rice with. However, as I came with a friend, we were too full to try the fried rice. Would have loved to try it though.


5) Gamjatang, $42 (2-3 pax) (above) – Pork bone soup with potatoes. Wanting to try something different, we decided to order this. And this was good. The meat was flavorful and fork-tender!

  

6) BBQ (pork) (minimum order 2 pax) with options of:-

(A) BBQ samgyub sal, $22 (above) – Sliced U.S. prime pork belly.

(B) BBQ mok sal, $26 (above) – Sliced pork collar.

What I don’t like about Your Woul is that they don’t provide complimentary drinks. Most Korean restaurants would offer water or Korean tea. But we had to buy bottled water.

In addition, we were not given much vegetables for our BBQ meat . What’s BBQ if we are not given sufficient lettuce for wraps. We ended up paying $5 for a plate of vegetables. And the irony of it was that the paid plate of vegetables was more than what was initially served. Like much more. Hmm…

But if I am to choose from the limited Korean restaurants in the North, I would go to Your Woul. Although the interior is simple and straight forward, I preferred it’s more authentic feel. And I noticed they are frequently patronized by Koreans too. A testimonial to the food.
