Ever had Korean food? If you are in the Emirates then you are going to have a good opportunity to try this cuisine as there are some really good Korean restaurants in UAE. Korean food is actually quite spicy, using seasonings like red pepper, soya sauce, garlic, ginger, mustard and vinegar wine. Rice is the backbone to every meal and is sometimes replaced with noodles. They are numerous shared dishes that accompany this main pat of the meal. Korean food is different in that all food is brought in at once and is shared. Seafood figures big in this cuisine since Korea is a peninsula.
The food is cooked in different ways mostly steamed, pan fried, stewed, fermented and even raw. Food is often preserved and in fact it’s a fine art and many side dishes are either pickled, fermented or salted. the most popular food Kimchi is a spicy cabbage with a sourish yet tangy crunch and is part of every meal.
Some Korean restaurants in UAE and elsewhere usually have a charcoal grill in the centre of the table where marinated meats are grilled in traditional restaurants. Nowadays the concept is used to keep the grilled meats hot as you eat them.Some of the best Korean restaurants in UAE
Hyu Korean is in Oud Metha and has a loyal clientele of Korean expats. While it does not set itself up as a fine dining place, this definitely is among the best Korean restaurants in UAE. The food here is traditional Korean. All the tables have a grill so be ready for Korean BBQ fare. On their menu is Kimchi Jjigae, a soup that is served with tofu for those who prefer vegetarian or seafood varieties are also available. The famous Korean food, Bibimbap is a mixed fried rice with veggies, garlic mushrooms, hot garlic sauce and egg.
Pyongyang Okryu gwan is a Korean restaurant in UAE that stands on its own. This is because it is the only North Korean restaurant and the waitresses are in full traditional Korean dress when they suddenly take a break to do a floor show.. On Friday nights they have a cabaret show. But apart from the oddity of it being a North Korean restaurant in UAE, what difference is there in the food? Well their cuisine is similar to the south but do try what is called Kim Jong un’s favourite food Koryo Royal Sinseollo. It is a seafood and mushroom hot pot and should be shared. Their cold noodle soups are also deliciously refreshing.
Sonamu at Asiana Hotel is a BBQ style restaurant and is one of the best Korean restaurant in UAE to visit for their grills.. They do serve other classic Korean food as well if grills are not your thing. This classy restaurant though is the best place to choose for their BBQ nights on Tuesdays and Saturdays where you can keep eating all that you can. The grills are right there on your table and you can have them cooked and eaten straight off the grill.
Sarang Bakery at JLT is not a Korean restaurant in UAE but we would still feature it here since this is something very different. Korean food is not really known for baked foods or desserts but this bakery tries to keep it authentic Korean while doing a modern twist. The cakes are good but it is the breads that are a reason to visit. They have some unique fillings that include read beans, green tea that are sweet and the savoury option is the sausage bread. Some of the other good restaurants to try are Sobahn on Sheikh Zayed Road for Korean and Japanese food. Kimchikin in Deira for Korean fast foods. The place is both quirky, cheap and tasty.
