Looking at the menu, I was relieved to find out that it was in English. We have been warned that some Koreans have poor command in English and it would be really hard to choose what we want to eat if we will have to rely on the photos on the menu. Since we were a big group, we had to occupy three tables. On my table sat fellow food bloggers Richard (and his family), Jane, Paul and our friend Grace.
We agreed to share our orders as the photo made it seems like the serving is quite big. We were a bit dumbfounded though when the server consistently insisted that we can't just get one of each and wanted us to get three orders per kind. It was only later on that we realized that the price on the menu is good for one and for our group of 6 we had to order a minimum of 3 each.
Well call it luck (see, I told you rain brings good luck!) that I found out that Yoogane just opened its first branch here in Manila! In fact, they opened TODAY! Expect that I will be heading there pretty soon! Can't wait to be reunited with my yummy Chicken Galbi!
For those heading to Seoul, Korea -- make sure to dine at Yoogane in Myeongdong! It's quite hard to point the exact address but it's right across Saboten and is near Uniqlo (close to the Myeongdong Subway Station). Better to print this entry out and point the photo above to any local who might be able to help you find the way. :)
Yoogane is located at 66-6, Chungmuro 2-ga, Jung-gu, Seoul, Korean. Click here for the store map.
Here in Manila, Yoogane is located at G/F Il Terrazzo Mall, 305 Tomas Morato Ave. Cor. Scout Mandrinan St. Brgy. South Triangle in Quezon City.
