Yin & Yang


To find authentic korean cuisine in this part of the world...is like looking for "a needle in the sea".
Guess what? I found this fabulous place "Seoul Garden Restaurant" just next to Zabeel Building. How could i have missed it?




The owner is a petite korean lady. Last week, I tried the famous ginseng chicken soup (Samgyetang)...absolutely the real McCoy! Enuff said. And the side dishes (they will replenish at no extra charges) were simply delicious!
Samgyetang is traditionally served in the summer for its supposed nutrients, which replaces those that are easily lost through excessive sweating and physical exertion during the hot summers in Korea.
I managed to leave my mark again in one of the magazines...can u spot it? lol
San Nakji will go gaga over this dish...lol

There is a Korean restaurant just 25 m from where I live. After your description I guess I will have to try the Samgyetang. (I guess it's on the menu.)

By the way, it IS Hitler you saw on my blog today.

The small dishes in the center are just how it was at Corea Won, where our martial arts school had black belt dinner in February. Some of the little side dishes were very tasty, especially some potatos with a sweet sauce.

HOOOOO ! I'm learning so many words when I'm reading you :
"Petite", "gaga", are they not French words ?
Hahahah !
And this sentence "a needle in the sea"
We say : "chercher une aiguille dans une botte de foin"
Botte de foin = bundle
Needle = aiguille

Where is SN ?
He is in WEEK END
and when he will arrive, it will be no more food on the table, because that looks so appetizing, we'll eat all the dishes !
(Even the spoons and the books)

PS : I saw your avatar
I ever thought you ware a black feline !!!

Ah, Samgyetang. I love it! Koreans have a saying, Iyeolchiyeol which means "on a hot day, hot food" and it's perfect! I am really turned off by bones though... So Samgyetang is not the best for me!

I am really into korean food but had a very bad experience in Abu dhabi where i ate at this korean restaurant which is not halal! And the thing is, none in the menu indicated that their food contains pork, infact, it was only written as beef. Can u give me more description of the korean restaurant that u mentioned and is it halal? I am from Abu Dhabi and not very familiar with dubai. Thanks so much.

sorry about your bad experience..there are quite a number of korean restaurants in Dubai..u can also try the one at The Ascot Hotel (Bur Dubai). To be on the safe side..always order beef and chicken items..i personally do not take pork, less beef, mutton and chicken..have a pleasant meal :)
