Ms K had a craving for non-BBQ Korean cuisine, and Your Woul seemed to have pretty good reviews. Judging from the fact that it has been operating for quite a while at this location, we decided to give it a try!
The restaurant was opened by a Korean family and has a typical Korean local atmosphere surrounding it, with Korean aunties shouting in Korean and patrons chatting loudly with occasional drinking glass knocking. What we like most about Korean restaurants is definitely the small plates of appetizers that are served before and during the meal. Some restaurants offer free-flow of appetizers but in Your Woul, it’s just two rounds of 6 different titbits.
We read that the stew here was good so we ordered one stew alongside the usual suspects in Korean dining, like pancake, fish cakes and glass noodles. We were done with these when the idea of fried chicken suddenly floated in our brains and we (over-) ordered fried chicken to end the meal!
- Seafood Pancake ($14.90++): Everyone’s favourite dish! The pancake was filled with ingredients, and we liked the texture.
- Pork Ribs Potato Stew ($42++): The meat came off the huge bones easily, and it was tender yet firm.
- Stir-fried Vegetables with Glass Noodles ($15.90++): We thought that this was a tad too oily for our liking.
- Assorted Fish Cakes Soup ($18++): There were lots of fish cake of various shapes that hubby enjoyed very much, but they all tasted the same to me, haha!
- Fried Chicken (half portion original $22++, half portion sweet and spicy $24++): We were deciding between the 2, and the waitress suggested that we do a half-and-half. Three of us preferred the original, while Ms K liked the sweet and spicy one, which I found to be a tad too salty.
This was not a huge restaurant, and though it was relatively empty when we arrived just before 7pm, it was quickly filled with customers for the remaining night, but we seemed to stayed the longest, enjoying each other’s company (and gossips!).
