Korean with a personal touch – Yourim Restaurant, Dallas
It's fair to say that I do get around – to a large number of Asian restaurants anyway. Friends of many cultures take me to a variety of establishments, but when certain chefs make a point to drag me somewhere multiple times… noteworthy.
Here at Yourim, located next to Mac Karaoke in the Korean enclave of Royal & 35, we find familiar dishes – made with integrity, detail… and love.
^ Jokbal – sliced pig's feet. Traditionally eaten wrapped in lettuce. Here with many delicious banchan.
^ Banchan detail.
^ Jokbal preparation. ^ and Pajeo with seafood – a pancake made from eggs, rice flour, and here – green leeks. Wonderful.
^ GopChang JunGol… Intestines of Ox, tripe, vegetables… amazing.
^ the previous week we did the YumSo JunGol – an excellent goat and vegetable soup.
Love this place. We go late, you can enjoy Soju until 2am, and food until 4am.
I have heard some discussion that the restaurant's name is "Youlim." When I asked at the restaurant they pointed to the menu. It's somewhere lost in translation.
Regardless, Find it at 2525 Royal Ln, #317, Dallas, 75229. And as Andrew comments below, yes they are off to Korea 'til late September! I might have told you guys that part – d'oh!
