at Yehyangjeong (Garden 5 – Techno Building)
-Munjeong, Songpa, Seoul, Republic of Korea-
with the Family
Yehyangjeong (예향정) is a Korean restaurant chain. Currently 50 locations across the country, including 1 in Garden 5. Specializes in traditional meat dishes, such as bulgogi, along with stews, such as kimchi jjigae.
After spending the afternoon exploring the outlet shops in Techno Building, we decided to grab dinner before going home – Yehyangjeong seemed as good as any.
The food was solid hit and wide miss. The bulgogi was sweet and saucy, just how the kids like it, ideal for mixing into a bowl of hot steaming rice. The kimchi jjigae was plain weird, with odd flavors that I couldn’t place, as if made with foreign spices and seasonings. The steamed rice was fine, though not categorically different, as per the hype. Anyway, we left satisfied.
