For the galbi! Yum

It’s funny how I first knew about Yoogane. I was searching for another Korean restaurant (in the wrong building though. Ha) a few months back when I saw the snaking queue at Yoogane. And that piqued my curiosity.

Hoping that the hype would have quiet down a bit, my girlfriends and I headed over for dinner recently. We arrived on a weekend at 6.45pm to a long queue. But thankfully the queue was moving pretty fast. We were seated within 30 minutes. Of which we well spent the time by getting the menu early and ‘study’ what we wanted to order. Ha.

As it neared our turn (when we were 3rd in queue), the staff came up, took our order and passed us an order slip. It’s to note that for groups of 2 and more, minimum order for 2 portions is required.

And when we were first in the queue, another staff collected our order slip to set up our table with (complimentary) iced water, aprons and our (ordered) drinks before we were seated. Pretty organized, I got to say.

And from the menu (pages 12345678), we ordered:-

1) Chicken galbi with chukkumi octopus, $21.90 per pax – Chukkumi octopus with delectable chicken. As there were 3 of us, the minimum order of 2 portions applied and we ordered portion for 2 for the galbi. With options of additional topping like noodles, fried rice, various types of rice cakes and sweet potato, we went with additional (topping of) ramyeon noodles at $3.90 as my girlfriends were not too interested in the rice cakes. If not, I will recommend getting the topping choice of ‘combination fixing’ at $10.90 which has vegetable, mushroom, noodle and rice cake. And this was good. We felt pampered as the staff cooked the dish in front of us.

2) Marinated chicken bulgogi fried rice, $14.90 per pax – Fried rice with marinated bulgogi tender chicken strips. And we ordered a portion. Sandwiched between the rice was cheese, but what made the rice more fragrant (for me) was the seaweed. This also had optional topping of noodles or cheese although we did not go with any.

3) Marinated chicken stew, $16.90 – Signature chicken galbi in stew.

Due to the (silly) 3000 characters limit, continue to read my review on other dishes here: PART2

I say Yoogane is not too bad. Food and service were good. The side dishes which Korean restaurants always provide are free-flow and self service at a side-dish counter. With only 4 types, my girlfriends and I mainly had the kimchi.

And although the restaurant was running at full house, the system which Yoogane had set up among their team made sure things ran smoothly and every tables was taken care of.

I did not mind the 30 minutes queuing time as it gave us much time to figure what was the ‘toppings section’ about. But I don’t think I will queue if the waiting time is more than 30 minutes.

Good Korean Style Fried Rice

Passed by Yoogane one day and was tempted by the fragrance of their fried rice but queue was too long that day. Went back again yesterday and queue was short as we arrived before 6pm and managed to get our seats after 5 min. Ordered the chicken Galbi fried rice and a side order of ramyeon. Staff fried the chicken and rice in a huge flat plate at your table, you can't help but got really hungry while watching and waiting. Guess that is one good tactic. Food is good though menu is limited. Portion per pax is quite generous for people with normal appetite. I like the food but unlikely to eat here often due to lack of varieties in the menu. Service wise they are quite polite and pleasant, no problem at all.

For chicken galbi and fried rice

We didn't get to rub shoulders with the #YGFamily artists (but @insingbuddy did), so the next best thing was to indulge in #Koreanfood. Our choice: Yoogane. We got the chicken galbi ($16.90 for a portion, minimum two) and added in ramyeon noodles ($3.90) for good measures. Our hearts (or tummies) were sold to their special fried rice (beef and seafood, $15.90). Stuffed with mozzarella cheese, each mouthful was a savoury nod to the (exciting) K-culture.
