|We finally found Yoogane in Myeongdong!|
|Making his way to the third floor!|
|While waiting for our food to be cooked.|
|The menu! (Click to enlarge)|
|Add-ons, plus other main dishes.|
|Steamed rice, seaweed, a small dollop of gochujang...|
|... stir-fried with small pieces of chicken meat and scallions.|
|Mix, mix, mix...|
|Ta-daaa! Marinated Chicken Bulgogi Fried Rice!|
Once the chicken bulgogi was cooked, the waitstaff took out the pan from the grill and came out a few minutes later with a new pan containing the ingredients for our dak galbi.
|Up next - dak galbi.|
|Shredded cabbage with mayo.|
Back at our table, there's a lot of action happening on the frying pan. Like the other dish that we ordered, the dak galbi was cooked right in front of us, with the waitstaff coming over to our table every three minutes or so to stir-fry the ingredients until they were cooked.
Halfway through the cooking came the best part - the cheese! Generous amounts of mozzarella cheese poured on the side pockets of the pan, melted until they became soft and stringy.
We dug in as soon as the waitstaff turned the stove off, and the cheese-coated dak galbi was so delectable - creamy, flavorful, with just the right spicy kick.
|Good food being cooked right before our very eyes.|

If you're visiting Korea, make it a point to enjoy a meal or two at Yoogane. With their numerous branches across the country, you'll be sure to find one in popular tourist areas such as Hongdae, Dongdaemun, Gangnam, and of course, Myeongdong. We're definitely coming back to Yoogane when we return in Spring, and now I'm starting to count the days until I get my chops on this spicy cheesy goodness once again!
