Weekend Food Trip at: Yoree Korean Dining

One of my favorite Korean restaurant is located quite far from where I live, well, not exactly far, but considering traffic situation, it takes minimum 1.5 hours to get there!  So when Mr. AMW and I had the chance to "date" on a weeknight with Kyle, I took the opportunity to take them to Yoree Korean Dining.  Because I've dined in this restaurant so many times, all thanks to AGC for celebrating 3 years of Christmas parties in this particular restaurant so I can proudly say, I've tried almost 90% of their menu and all of the dishes received 2 thumbs up from me!  And I'm a picky Korean dish eater guys!  So that is POSITIVE enough!

Just like any Korean Restaurant, you will be greeted with appetizers as you wait for your order.  The congee is TDF (To die for!).

Gyeran Mari
Rolled omelette stuffed with melted cheddar cheese topped with bonito flakes.

Mr. AMW is a fan of anything made with "eggs".  Since this is quite new to me as well, we've decided to give this a try and it was a lovely surprise!  The bonito flakes add up to the unique taste of cheddar cheese.  I didn't know they would work well together, but with this dish, it was proven to be a successful partnership :)

Haemul Pajeon 
Traditional Korean pancake made with rice wheat flour 
with octopus, clams, shrimp and green onions.

Another appetizer worth trying out!  I like how each bite you get a nice taste of all the seafood mentioned in this dish!  I like how this is filling enough!

Now Korean restaurant dining won't be complete without barbecue!

Premium pork belly served with pan-fried fermented Kimchi.

I seldom order Samgyeopsal in other Korean restaurants because I find them to be bland for my liking.  Not with this particular one from Yoree, all their meat are well-marinated and I particular like the right amount of pork fat in this particular dish!  

With the help of their servers, the meat are cooked so perfectly (a bit crispy on the outside but still juicy on the inside).

Woo Samgyeop
Sliced USDA choice beef belly, 
brushed with sweet soy sauce and topped with spring onions.

Sliced so thinly and perfectly, this gets cooked pretty quickly so you have to be ready with your fresh lettuce wraps and enjoy each flavorful bite!

Dak Galbi
Fresh boneless chicken thigh in Yoree's special marinade.

Now for a "chicken breast" eater, I understand why Yoree particularly used the Thigh part for this dish!  It is extremely tender, very flavorful and the Yoree special marinade is indeed special I find this to be my favorite among all the meat dishes (mind you, I like them all, so picking just one is hard!)

Same as all the meat, the server will help "Barbecue" the meat dishes for you so you'll expect perfection!

Guys, as I was typing this post, I don't know how we can eat this much!  We OVER ordered and it was one of the best family dates we have!

And for someone not into alcoholic drinks, I can't help but create the "overall Korean dining experience" by ordering  a bottle of Jinro Chamisul Fresh (Php248.00) but decided to turn it into a cocktail on the latter part because it tastes better that way!  #lol (Php578.00)

And who said seeing Soju would make it the last photo for this particular food trip?  Nah, I can't help but ordered my ultimate favorite YOREE dish that I can't seem to find elsewhere! 

Gwanja Gui
Grilled US scallops seared in butter served with enoki and button mushroom 
infused with truffle oil

NO ONE must skip ordering this dish whenever you visit Yoree.  Do yourself a favor and order yourself a cup of rice and mix everything together!

I tell you, this dish is SINFULLY good!  So good I don't mind going back to the restaurant ALONE, order this with plain rice and eat this ALONE!

This restaurant gets packed even on weekdays, I highly recommend to call for reservations!  The servers are extremely knowledgeable with the menu and are super helpful!  I can't wait to go back for more food-trip with the family!

Have you tried Yoree?
Which other Korean restaurants around the Metro would you like me to visit?

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!


  1. Ugh! I love Korean food and I am a sucker for their pancakes. I love Korean Fishcake too. My fave place is Aladdin in Bf Paranaque. They have a buffet starting at 399 I think and that includes unlimited meat on the grill. The banchan side dishes in the pic look yummy.

  2. This post really pushed me over the edge that I ended up having a Korean food trip as well. You should try Aladdin.
