The other day we attempted to go to Sushi Yaro again, but once again we failed. We tried to go for lunch and they closed at 2, and we arrived about 2:20. So, we decided to head to Halmouny, another place I had been wanting to try.
First, we were served some ice cold barley tea.
We were given about seven panchan dishes.
The dishes were alright. They offered the more common ones I'm used to seeing. I do wish they offered some more unique ones that aren't as commonly served.
I noticed some lunch specials posted on the board outside the restaurant. The Dduk bulgogi (beef bulgogi hot stew with clear noodles, rice cakes) was being offered for lunch for $8.99, so I chose to try it. It's normally $15.99 for dinner.
I've never actually ordered this dish before, so I don't have much to compare it to. I could taste the beef bulgogi in the soup and through most of the dish. I liked how they used the clear chewy noodles and the rice cakes.
BF wanted to try the grilled sirloin steak.
The steak was really dry. The tops were a bit burned. And there was absolutely no seasoning. It was dry and plain, almost tasting like beef jerky.
I wasn't too impressed with my first trip, but I do want to come back and try some more dishes after I do some research.
Sorry if the posts lately seem a bit short. A lot of things have been going on that have kept me super busy. Hopefully things will calm down next month.
