Joons Korean Cuisine
Our main goal to going to Joons was to get the DakGalBee that Jess and Joyce have been raving about. Basically DakGalBee which consists of stir-frying marinated diced chicken in a gochujang (chili pepper paste) based sauce, and sliced cabbage, sweet potato, scallions and onions together on a hot plate. You also had the option of adding rice cakes, noodles, cheese, rice and fried rice to the pan. You can also pick the level of spiciness you would like: non-spicy teriyaki sauce, Joons original spicy sauce or suicidal spicy sauce (an additional 50 cents).
We started off with the typical Korean appetizers that were just mediocre, I don't think we finished any of them because we were too consumed with the DakGalBee. Top left going clockwise: broccoli with chilli sauce, pickled radish, mashed potato salad? and kimchi.
At it's raw state, not so appetizing. We got an order of rice cakes, noodles, cheese and at the end we added rice. Also they cook the whole dish in front of you!
All done! Just look at all that cheese! The cheese tastes better than it sounds, seriously! The cheese is what made me fall in love with this dish the first time I had it a few years ago.
When you're almost or half way done the dish, you order a bowl of steamed rice and get them to fry it up for you so it soaks up all the sauce. So amazingly good, also another meal in itself.
I didn't get to try anything else from Joons cause we were all too stuffed but I will definitely make Jess and Joyce take me back for another round!
