In the less busy part of BGC, there's Yoree Korean BBQ Restaurant with all its delectable Korean food choices and more. Coupling grilled fare with a wine selection in perfect harmony with the meats, it’s a food haunt you’ll surely come back to.
Their wine nights menu is carefully prepared and curated by the restaurant’s head chef, Leo Barcenas. Brace yourself for the onslaught of delicious Yoree specialties.
Koreans always, always begin a meal with appetizers. Yoree goes all out with a feast of starters: Sweet Potato Porridge, a smooth delight with sweet potato, gluten rice, and fresh milk with add ons of jujube, dried shrimp, and spring onion; Gamja salad or the potato salad, served cold; Kimchi Ssambap (because what is Korean without kimchi) and; Ssam, serving as a colorful way of taking in your much needed veggies.

These appetizers are best eaten with Sauvignon Sauvignon, a dry white wine with fresh, fruity notes.
Make sure you still have room for more, as the following servings take on the spotlight of the night.
The insta-fave, Tongdak Gui Tteokgalbi, is basically roast chicken with all the savory Korean flavors merged in one tender, juicy, and lip-smacking plate. Get yourself cooking with platters of Kkotsal and Yangnyeom Galbi and enjoy every melt-in-your-mouth helping of these meats. Its perfect companion? A glass of Barefoot Merlot, a deeper-flavored wine with hints of mocha, cherries, and plums, or Barefoot Cabernet Sauvignon, dosed in berries and velvety vanilla goodness.

Cap off a wonderful night of good food and wine with fruit in—what else?—more wine! The Sukseong Wine Bae are glorious Korean pears that are soaked in red wine and served with whipped cream for more sweetness, and cinnamon for a kick.
Got any plans? If you still don't, well then, now we're sure you do.
