korean food / seoul / A new premium Korean beef restaurant with refined flavors and rich juiciness – 2093

A masterpiece of grilled Korean beef created by combining the marbling of Korean beef embellished like a snowy landscape with charcoal. The refined texture and flavor of high-quality Korean beef gives a full sense of satisfaction that cannot be felt with other meats. In order to maximize the flavor of Korean beef, the aging method and the skill of the person grilling and grilling are also very important factors. Therefore, in the early days, they simply offered high-quality meat, and gradually each store began offering Korean beef that has gone through a unique aging process.

As a typical example, it is divided into dry aging, where meat is exposed to air and aged in a wet way in a place where ventilation is maintained, and wet aging, in which meat is aged in a vacuum package. Dry aging allows you to enjoy a unique cheesy flavor as moisture is removed, but the price is relatively expensive because the weight of the meat is reduced. Wet aging is also a good aging technique that can maximize the flavor through careful management according to the condition of the meat since its flavor changes depending on the temperature or aging period.

As the quality of meat has improved, experienced servers are often in charge of cooking, but omakase style restaurants with Korean beef as the main character began to become popular a few years ago. Mainly in a private space, you can enjoy various parts of Korean beef prepared by experienced chefs in the form of courses. I recommend that you experience at least once in your life the best flavors that come from the finest meat and delicate cooking.

“Tung Yi Woo RIPE” is located on the 9th floor of the KEB Hana Bank building near Samseong Station. The signature menu is “Korean beef omakase,” which presents a variety of dishes using various recipes, with a focus on Korean beef. Cooking begins by explaining the part of Korean beef used in today's omakase. Authentic dishes are prepared after feasting the taste with fresh appetizers such as sea bream ceviche, hanchi and sweet shrimp sashimi, red bean paste tartare, and tomato consomme. Starting with the main dishes of churi sal/smoked pork, grilled sirloin, hot noodles, sandwiches, and yakiniku, meals (gomguk soup, kamameshi), and dessert are served in that order. Among them, the “sirloin” part where sirloin that has been aged for 40 days is grilled and eaten with a rich black truffle is the most popular. Note that it is operated by 100% reservation.

“Hugh 135” is named after the most delicious steak at 135 degrees Fahrenheit. You can find beef that has been aged using dry aging techniques. “Chawanmushi,” a Japanese-style steamed egg custard served as an amuse bush before a meal, has a pudding-like texture that gently soothes an empty stomach. This place is characterized by applying yeast to the meat and using slightly different aging methods for each part to make the most of its natural flavor. All meats are cooked evenly on the outside and then go through a roasting process to boast rich juiciness and tender texture. Another popular menu item is the “yellowtail tartar,” which is made by mixing chewy yellowtail with quinoa and egg yolk and wrapped in a sour cucumber pickle in one bite. A variety of alcoholic beverages such as sake, traditional sake, and whiskey are also available.

It was an even more satisfying meal because they explained each part of the food in detail and even helped me how to eat it deliciously. If two people go to each course and order a single item, it's great to eat a hearty meal.

“Montan” is located near Exit 8 of the Samgak area. It was renovated from a 100-year-old Jeoksan house and reborn as a straw grill specialty store. The signature menu, “Premium Ribs,” is served by marinating the beef ribs, which are said to be the most delicious of the beef ribs, marinated in a sweet and spicy soy sauce sauce and then grilled. The delicate aroma of the ribs soaked throughout the ribs is exquisite after the primrose grilling process of burning straw over charcoal. The slightly frozen radish sprouts served as a side dish further enhance the umami of the ribs, and the cool temperature finishes the aftertaste. “Miso jjigae,” which boasts a savory yet aromatic soup with plenty of horseradish, is a favorite meal menu. It is often finished early due to lack of materials, so it is recommended that you check by phone before visiting.

▲Opening hours: 18:00 — 24:00 every day (closed after the last reserver's meal)

▲Price: Korean beef omakase 89,000 won

▲Review (I'm worried about hair loss): I was able to enjoy Korean beef omakase at a reasonable price compared to other places, so it was nice that it wasn't too burdensome. The 2nd floor is in the form of a bar, and it's cozy and clean. I ate it while listening to the explanation, and it seemed like something tastier, and the atmosphere was great, but the meat was great too!
