YOOGANE: Korea's Famous Delicious Dak Galbi now in the Philippines

Good news, Korean Food Lover!!!  YOOGANE: Korea's Famous Delicious Dak Galbi is now in the Philippines. If you've visited South Korea before, most probably you've already tried the famous Yoogane's Marinated Chicken Galbi now being offered in the Philippines for only Php 210.00.
Dak Galbi is an authentic dish that can only be found in Korea, until August 13, 2012, when Yoogane (pronounced yoo-gah-ne) formally opened its door in the Philippines. Literally, dak means chicken and galbi means ribs in Korean. But chicken ribs are not used for cooking dak galbi. Dak galbi’s main ingredient is chicken drumsticks. Galbi also means stir-fried food. So, the meaning of dak galbi is stir-fried chicken.
Koreans stir-fry rice after cooking the dak galbi with the remaining sauce. This is a recommended option to get at Yoogane for just Php 70, you get to enjoy dak galbi fried rice!

Yoogane staff served dak galbi in a really huge pan that is like four times the size of your face. At your table, the serving staff mixed rice, sauce and ramyeon with the dak galbi in a pan and cooked the marinated Chicken Galbi right in front of your eyes. For just Php 80.00 you get an additional mozzarella cheese to neutralize the spiciness. If you don't like spicy food then by all means don't forget to add 2 or 3 cheese add-ons. For just an additional Php 70 pesos you get cylindrical rice cakes add-on. Mozzarella-stuffed rice cakes (dokboki) as an add-on will cost you Php 90 pesos. I tell you, the taste is unforgettable, it will haunt you in your dreams and you will be craving for more. I am actually salivating when I was typing my thoughts about Yoogane.

My friends warned me that I'll be needing a pitcher of water before I started eating. But much to my surprise, I did not taste any shocking spicy taste at all when I tried the Dak Galbi. For me, it was only moderately spicy, far from fiery spicy that my friends are telling me about. Don't get me wrong though, to some of my friends, the Dak Galbi is very spicy. Different people, different taste buds.  Just in case, you are not so fond about spicy food, then by all means, get ready with a pitcher of drink. So, I therefore conclude, that for a Bicolana lass like me Yoogane's Dak Galbi is very mild.:-) laughs. Yakang yaka! Aja!
I super love Yoogane's version of Japchae (pronounced as chapche) which will cost you Php 200.00. It is so delicious! A must try!  This Korean dish is made from sweet potato noodles called dangmyeon, 당면, stir fried in sesame oil with various  thinly sliced vegetables such as carrots, onion, spinach, and mushrooms, served with beef, and flavored with soy sauce, and sweetened with sugar. It is usually served garnished with sesame seeds and slivers of chili. This dish can be served either hot or cold.

Yoogane's brick walls are spray painted with attractive Korean cartooncharacters murals. The Brick walls are said to be imported from Korea.
Some drawings are framed.
Cutie cute cute~!
Yoogane's secret recipe sustain them since 1981. 
It is easy to cook this Korean dish, you just need some chicken drumsticks, garlic, onions and red pepper paste, you also have an option to add Tteok (rice cake), mozarella cheese for a certain amount but if you want to eat a really great dak galbi then, you should come and eat at Yoogane. I could not forget how delicious their Dak galbi and Japchae is.
Yoogane in Il Terrazzo (Tomas Morato) has an all-glass surrounding that gives the impression of a roomy interior. There is a copper-colored exhausts fans positioned above each table.
The restaurant was bright and clean.The staff are friendly but for a budget meal type of person, I find the prices to be a little bit on the high side because the food servings for the japchae for example, are so little. But I highly recommend the taste, because it is very very delicious. Two thumbs up for the taste. Maybe the management could make the serving bigger. Wooooot! If that is the case I think I will be there everyday, ha ha ha!

If you are celebrating a birthday or any special occasion you will never go wrong with Yoogane.
