In this travel video we’re in the mood for a quick lunch so we head out to try a new Korean style Asian Fusion lunch set nearby Audrey’s apartment in Yongin, Korea at J’s Table that specializes in California rolls and Vietnamese Pho.
We liked the trendy, artsy and modern type atmosphere and do it yourself self service where we grabbed our own complimentary Korean tea and cutlery.
The food itself was delicious and light – the perfect lunch. We had fun slurping the pho while adding extra hot sauce with a cute heart in the middle.
The assorted California rolls hit the spot and were our favorite of the two dishes.
The Korean owner, a middle aged man who had spent time in North America as a sushi chef, spoke excellent English and made us feel welcome.
Overall, we enjoyed the Korean meal and would love to come back again soon if we have time before we leave Korea in a few days.
For those interested in trying Korean fusion food, it’s not difficult to find these kinds of restaurants that often have a Korean twist on either Western or other types of Asian cuisine.
As a general tip while traveling and/or living in Korea: try different restaurants whenever you can.
In the last few weeks we got out of our comfort zone and routines and hit up a bunch of new eateries in Audrey’s neighborhood.
What we discovered is that we found places that we wish we had of tried many months ago.
The perfect time to go for lunch in Korea is around 11 to 11:30 before Korean office workers take lunch.
Sometimes, if you’re lucky, you’ll be the first person in the restaurant and service will be very quick.
We’re sad to be leaving Korea. We’ve loved trying traditional Korean foods and fusion types of restaurants. We’re certainly going to miss the cuisine, culture and people once we leave.
