Yoree is fairly new in the Korean culinary scene, but it has already established itself as one of the go-to places for high-quality food, enjoyed in a classy setting. It’s perfect for celebrating special occasions because really–what’s a better celebration than one celebrated through excellent Korean fare? Get out of your comfort zone, and try their Nakji Bokkeum or octopus seasoned with gochujang.
Other extraordinary dishes that you have to try are the Kimchi Ssambap and Tongdak Gui Tteokgalbi. End your meal on a (really) positive note with Bingsu; it comes in three delectable flavors.

With worried and hesitant hearts (slash bellies), we reveal this hole-in-the-wall, culinary gem. Nestled in gritty and lively Poblacion—authentic Korean food with very reasonable prices lies in Min Sok. It’s definitely underrated, adding to its appeal as an obscure food spot. For first timers, their Samgyeopsal and Chadolbaki surely won’t disappoint.
