Weekend Food Tripping at: Yoogane

One of the many unforgettable restaurants I've tried in Korea is called Yoogane!  It was random walking when we suddenly saw the familiar restaurant sign which I get to know about base on my research prior to Seoul Trip!

The experience was wonderful!  And after a nice dinner at Il Terrazzo for my dad's birthday, Keith and I were both excited to see Yoogane sign!  Fast forward to a couple of weeks, we've decided to give this restaurant a visit together with my family (this time, for my brother's birthday)!  The restaurant has "Soft Opening" written at the front door but that didn't stop us from giving this restaurant a try!

Free appetizers

Yoogane's Marinated Chicken Galbi
Php210.00 (approx $4.90)

Their bestselling Chicken Galbi is a bit different in taste as the ones we had in Korea.  Nevertheless, the taste is as good!  Spicy Chicken strips mixed with various vegetables.  Bear in mind that the marinate are fixed, you can't request for levels of spiciness! 

 Char-grilled Chicken Galbi
Php220.00 (approx $5.10)
The look is almost the same as Yoogane's Marinated Chicken Galbi but this one is a bit more flavorful and has more spice!  The chicken are very tender.

Marinated Chicken Galbi and Assorted Seafood
Php240.00 (approx $5.60)
To be honest, all 3 dishes ordered can be mixed all together as the sauce all tastes the same!  Since we just wanted to check out if there's any difference amongst the dishes, we've decided to have them separated.  But overall, I'm not complaining, the meat are all cut in think slices which permits the marinade to penetrate into the meat making each bite bursting with flavors and spices.

Grilled Pork Belly Strips
Php180.00 (approx $4.18)
I'm not a fan of anything with fats visible to the naked eyes but this one is a winner!  The Grilled Pork Belly Strips was mistakenly put on our table but it was a wonderful  mistake as we ended up ordering another!

This would even be more perfect if wrapped on fresh lettuce!  Yummy!

Beef Bulgogi
Php220.00 (approx $5.12)
Because my poor dad can't handle any spicy food, we ordered separate dish for him that's "fire-tongue" safe!  The Beef Bulgogi is a cooked marinated meat using a grill. 
Thin slices of beef were marinated to enhance its flavor also making the beef tender on each bite!  Overall, the dish is worth ordering!

Free Yakult to save your burning tongue at the end of the meal!

Overall, I can't complain about the service as "Soft Opening" sign was written at the doorway, but I would love it more if service will be quicker in the future as we have to wait for at least 15 minutes for each dish to arrive, which in turn, made our rice cold!  The ambiance is really good and perfect for group of friends and family!  I hope the restaurant could accommodate more than 4 individuals on each table as most tables are good for 4!

The restaurant accepts cash and credit card.  Service fee is included in the bill.
