korean food / seoul / 5 savory Korean beef sukiyaki restaurants that melt in your mouth – 2435

“Sukiyaki” is a hot pot dish made by simmering vegetables such as tofu, mushrooms, Chinese cabbage, and bok choy and thinly sliced beef in a broth made by adding ingredients such as sugar and mirin to soy sauce. I think sukiyaki comes from the word “sakanasuki (fish suki),” which is the Japanese word “suki (suki),” which means phlegm from agricultural tools, and grilled fish to eat during the Edo period. It looks similar to “shabu-shabu,” where meat and vegetables are lightly boiled in broth and dipped in sauce, but sukiyaki is characterized by the deep umami of the ingredients themselves being simmered with soy sauce. Sukiyaki is divided into two types: the Kanto style, where you put all the ingredients in a pot to a boil, and the Kansai style, where the sauce and ingredients are simmered on your own in a large iron pot, so you can choose according to your preferences. Recently, restaurants offering authentic sukiyaki using high quality Korean beef have been popping up one after another in Korea. A savory flavor that melts in your mouth! Here are 5 of the best Korean beef sukiyaki restaurants in Seoul.

“Kigen” was opened by Korean chef Lee Jun-suk, who used to be a brother, and Japanese chef Ino Fumiaki. They present Kansai style sukiyaki using premium grade Korean beef from 1++ BMS (Beef Marbling Standard) 9up. The signature menu, “Special Korean Beef Sukiyaki Single Item,” cooks ingredients using Nambu ironware griddle, which has a history of over 400 years. At first, you can enjoy the umami by dipping Korean beef simmered on your own with brown sugar and kaeshi sauce in a gokgol egg. Next, cover vegetables such as tofu, green onions, bok choy, mushrooms, and Chinese cabbage with meat and cook without moisture. You can experience a rich flavor by adding eggs mixed with plenty of truffles to the moist ripe ingredients due to the moisture that comes from vegetables.

“Negisukiyaki” is the fifth brand operated by Negi Company after Gapponegi, Negi Dining Lounge, Sushi Ryuko, and Modern Oden. There are both Guanseo-style food, which is eaten stewed in sauce without broth, and Kwan-dong-style, where tomatoes are added to the soup to make the most of the refreshing flavor, so it's a great place to choose and enjoy whatever suits your taste. The signature menu is “Negi Sukiyaki,” which uses 2++ extra fillets of Korean beef in a western style. Sprinkle sugar cane sugar over a pan greased with green onions and onions, then place the meat and ingredients. As the vegetables and meat are cooked, season the soy sauce thoroughly. The sweet and salty liver is soaked in meat and vegetables, and the eggs are eaten with green eggs from Jiri to make the most of their rich flavor.

Each ingredient is explained in detail, so it feels even more delicious when you know and eat it. Hehe, the menu for meals such as steakidon, which can only be eaten for lunch, is also very tasty, so I'll try Kanto food next time!

The sukiyaki specialty brand “Taka” was newly launched by “Gappo Aki,” which made a name for itself as a Japanese bar. They only sell dishes that capture the flavors of the season with seasonal ingredients without a single item, and course meals where you can enjoy sukiyaki together. The signature menu “SUKIYAKI LUNCH SET” is a hearty meal consisting of steamed clams with soy milk and egg custard that gently soothes the empty stomach, and consists of hanchi topped with green onion dressing, sashimi, pickled vegetables, grilled eggplant, shrimp, tempura, kamameshi, and sukiyaki. Sukiyaki uses ++1 Korean beef sirloin, which has an appropriate balance of fat and lean meat, so you can enjoy the texture that melts smoothly.

â–²Testimonial (A woman who is always hungry): The store is really clean because it's new. I went at lunchtime and ate it as a lunch course. The steamed egg custard came out cold according to the weather, and they were often served before sukiyaki, so it's fun to try everything. The broth underneath the main sukiyaki was really tasty, so I kept eating it, and the meat was so soft and tender.

“Kappo Makoto” is a high-end izakaya run by the famous izakaya “Makato” in Cheongdam-dong. You can find a variety of snack menus, from sashimi using the best tasting fish right now to sukiyaki, sea urchin dishes, and stewed kumtai. The signature menu is “Korean beef sukiyaki,” where you eat 1++ grade Korean beef sirloin grilled on the spot with various ingredients. Place fresh, reddish beef on an oil-coated pan and add a special soy sauce to add a deep flavor. When the sauce is simmering and the beef is moist, you can soak it in a poached egg and eat it. Beef, which boasts an addictive sweet and salty flavor, blends harmoniously with the luscious flavor of egg yolk.

There are a variety of vegetables, so eating a combination of this and that with meat is a real treat.

5. “Hon 528” at Sinsa Station, where your mouth is full of chewing

“Horn 528” was opened as a second brand by “GU STEAK”, a dry-aged steak specialty store. Each table and bar seat is equipped with induction, so it's a great place to enjoy a meal alone. Based on the experience of visiting numerous famous sukiyaki restaurants in Tokyo, Japan, I will recreate the local flavors. The signature menu “HON SUKIYAKI” starts with appetizers that enhance the taste buds, and offers sukiyaki, meal, and dessert in that order. Sukiyaki served in Kansai style is flavored with a special soy sauce made by boiling Korean beef two plus sirloin, kelp, soy sauce, and mirin. The sirloin is sliced thicker than that of regular sukiyaki, and has a rich, crunchy texture that fills the mouth.

Even though the meat was marbled a lot, I didn't feel it because I ate it with the sauce and vegetables, and it went really well with alcohol!
