Yoogane

Yoogane, having its first outlet in Singapore at Bugis Junction since a year ago and with its second outlet in Westgate, Jurong East.They offers Chicken Galbi (dakgalbi) which has been very well received in their country of Origin. Quality of food is ensured as the restaurant only uses top and fresh ingredients, complemented by its sauces and seasonings.

I though the hype for Yoogane should have been stopped by now but it doesn't seem so even on a Weekday night. We waited for about half an hour before getting ourselves into the restaurant.

Please Queue
Seats will only be provided upon arriving of the whole party and not to let waiting time gone to waste, menus were given and orders will be taken before we entered into the restaurant.

Red Alert

While queuing, look at the menu

Service was prompt and as soon as we got in, we were well informed by service staff that free-flow of appetizer were available from their salad bar.

Environment
However, if you are thinking about the wide range of korean appetizers which you usually get from Korean restaurants, this's gonna disappoint you as selections are rather limited with Kimchi, cabbages, pickles and red/green pepper.

The service staff on duty also gave us a short orientation of where the utensils and serviettes were kept. To prevent our clothes from getting dirtied during the meal, their in-house red aprons were given.
Utensils & Serviettes

 Orange and Apple soda was recommended by the service staff. Packaging were in cans form and
Orange and Apple Soda - $3.90 Each
After settling down with the drinks and making ourselves comfortable, the huge pan of Chicken Bulgogi containing 2 person portion were served and placed on the gas stove. Each item on the pan was neatly place with carrot, mushroom, green, red, yellow pepper, scallions, rice cakes, enoki mushroom and marinated chicken in the middle.

Chicken Bulgogi - $43.80 for 2
The medley of fresh vegetables (spring onions, leeks, radish, cabbage) and the savoury marinated chicken was tasty. The service staff did a very good job by having every item on the pan thoroughly cooked and coated with sweetness. Forget that they might look quite oily, its real delicious.  

 



Cooked Chicken Bulgogi

Cooked product
Initially we thought that the additional fried rice will be fried together with the chicken Bulgogi but we were wrong. They were fried not directly after the Chicken Bulgogi was served but rather, when we gave them the "green light" to fry. Additional fried rice comes with seaweed, sesame seed and sauce.

Additional Fried Rice - $3.90

Portion of the Chicken Bulgogi was tucked to the side of the pan before the staff started frying the rice. The ingredients from the plate of rice was mixed and cooked to the desired color. Towards the end of the cooking, the rice was spread out and flatten to a thin layer.





End Product

As a first timer here, Yoogane left me a good impression not only its friendly and polite service but also the quality of their korean food. What's more, the smell of a "walking korean BBQ" has been well taken care of in its dining environment with good ventilation. However, since the hype for Yoogane has not been over, do bear in mind to be there early or you will have to queue up for quite a while.
