Yoree Korean Barbecue Dining: Authentic Korean Charcoal Grill (Forum South Global BGC)

Fort Bonifacio, Taguig, Metro Manila, Philippines

Revisiting Forum South Global after quite some time, I'm surprised that Seven on 7th Bistro Modern has been replaced by Yoree Korean Barbecue Dining.

I didn't know what to expect.  Judging from the outside, it seems high-end

As I went in, my assertions were correct.  It was a grand spacious Korean restaurant indeed.  Even Sariwon is no match in terms of size and seating capacity.

I love the interiors as even the floor has eccentric details.

It has a high-ceiling that keep the place well ventilated and cool even during full-capacity with each table a charcoal grill as we've experienced during our dinner.

After taking our orders, we were given a flat napkin which was later on poured with hot water to expand.

Al la Carte
hae mool pa jeon
Hae Mool Pa Jeon (200 php)
The Hae Mool Pa Jeon is pancake with clam meat, octopus, shrimp and green onion.  This is one of the best pa jeon I've tried!

seafood jap chae
Seafood Jap Chae (250 php)
The Seafood Jap Chae is sauteed vegetables with beef, carrots, shrimp, mushroom in sweet potato noodles.  This is another hit among us!  This is the most extravagant and satisfying jap chae I've had yet. 

gyeran jjim
Gyeran Jjim (130 php)
I've always loved steamed egg like the Japanese Chawan Mushi.  But, this is surprisingly the first time I've tried the Korean rendition.  The Gyeran Jjim which is a steamed egg on hot stone is very good because it's not jelly-like but more on the fluffly scrambled side.  And, yet it's not dried, rough but soft and runny.  I hope to encounter more of this in the future.

jeonju dolsot bibimbap
Jeonju Dolsot Bibimbab (380 php)
Jeonju Dolsot Bibimbab is a stone-ware bibimbap with egg, seaweed, vegetables: cucumber,  raddish, carrots and sprouts, cheese and  beef strips.  This is another top-notch dish by Yoree.

haemool soon tofu
Haemool Soon Tofu (380 php)
The Haemool Soon Tofu is soft tofu stew with seafood.  The default is served at medium spicy.  But, you can request to go less or even further.  I'm very impressed with this dish because you can taste the wild spicy kick together with the sweet seafood flavors hand in hand.  The tofu being soft, smooth and silky is another plus.

Charcoal Barbecue on the Table
gochujang samgyupsal
Gochujang Samgyupsal (150 g) (400 php)
After being impressed with the first few dishes we ordered, I found out that the charcoal barbecue at Yoree is the highlight of the dinner.  The Gochujang Samgyupsal which is sliced pork belly and garlic with red pepper sauce is one of the best (if not the best) samgyupsal I've encountered.  It was so good that I didn't feel any guilt... just purely pleasure in devouring over it.  It is cooked with garlic and served with additional kimchi.

yangnyum galbi
Yangnyum Galbi 280g (720 php)
The Yangnyum Galbi 280g is seasoned short rib marinated with sweet and savory sauce with vegetable, shrimp and squid.

yangnyum galbi
Yangnyum Galbi 280g (720 php)
The Yangnyum Galbi is expensive but definitely worth every peso.

Yangnyum Galbi 280g (720 php)
The server grilled it until ready and then cut it into strips before placing it on our plates.

wagyu kkot deugnsim
Wagyu Kkot Deugnsim 130g (820 php)
The Yangnyum Galbi 280g is wagyu ribeye steak with mushroom.  It's "wagyu" need I say more? 

pot bingsu
Pot Bing-Su (170 php)
The Pot Bing-Su is shaved ice with milk, adzuki and mango.  This is not as extravagant as others I've tried.   But, I loved this the most!  It's simply refreshing especially after a savory meal. 


Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Yoree Korean Barbecue Dining is one of the best authentic Korean Charcoal dining restaurants in the Metro.  And, it's unmatched in terms of elegance too.  I'd recommend dining here if you're looking for quality Korean barbecue with excellent ambiance and service to boot.  But, note that it does come with the price.
