Title: Korean food
Post by: KoPP on July 09, 2011, 07:58:55 AM
I was talking to a friend, and we were talking about the amount of restaurants lately offering Korean menus. Is it that there are more restaurants, or is Korean cooking more in the public eye right now?

It's both, I think. The places on Buford Highway have been there for a long time, but now the suburbs have discovered how great this stuff is. Until a couple of years ago there were no Korean spots in Duluth, and now the place is lousy with them.

There's also the foodie trend of always looking for the next big thing. Once upon a time sushi was exotic. Then it had its day as the hot new item everyone had to try. Now it's part of the restaurant landscape, something you opt for on Saturday instead of Italian.

I have to disagree about Duluth and the appearance of Korean. Super H was in Duluth by 2004, with all the attendant Korean restaurants surrounding it. I have too many days commuting past that spot not to recall. So a Korean presence was in Duluth for longer than two years.

Further, Cho-Wan Buffet predates my blog, along with a few BBQ joints on Satellite Blvd.

Some of the older Korean activity was hidden in past years by "Japanese-Korean" restaurants - hybrid cuisine where you could get sushi and also Korean BBQ, if you asked.

But the recent growth -- yes, it's in the last few years that ethnic eating (Viet, Chinese, and Korean) in Duluth exploded in number, not only in Duluth but also Suwanee.

The recent trend these days, east of 85, is the growth of IndoPak and Latin ("authentic" Mexican, Peruvian, Dominican, perhaps Columbian) along Indian Trail and Pleasant Hill.

FnS.

Any recommendations for Korean BBQ for tonight near Buford Highway? Hae Woon Dae used to be our go-to but haven't been in ages and the Yelp reviews are a bit negative...

Hae Woon Dae was just barely ok. Servers kind of aloof, portions small, not many banchan. Would try somewhere else next time.

Darn, it has been our favorite in years past.

our first Korean BBQ was a place on BH just north of 285. can't remember the name but it was right next to the "adult" theater. I seem to remember it was pretty good.
we've since moved on to Honey Pig......

Yep, pretty sure that is Hae Wood Dae, though I was not actively looking for the "adult" entertainment.
