"Wishes of Joy and Wellness To All Those Who Dine Here"...

Some of my co-works and I have started a new tradition of going out to lunch once a week and trying a new cuisine each week. This week we went to The Korea SY House in Kalamazoo.

I had never eaten Korean food before but I am always willing to try something new! Wikipedia.com was a great source to check out what I had to look forward too.

"Korean cuisine is largely based on rice, vegetables, and meats. Traditional Korean meals are noted for the number of side dishes (반찬; banchan) that accompany steam-cooked short-grain rice. Kimchi is almost always served at every meal. Commonly used ingredients include seame oil, doenjang, (fermented bean paste), soy sauce, salt, garlic, ginger, pepper flakes, gochujang (fermented red chili paste) and napa cabbage."

 

I checked out The Korea SY House  on Yelp.com and the reviews were as great as the food...

Anita L said... "I'm so happy this is here in Kalamazoo! The food quality is great, and everything I've had has been delicious. I highly recommend the dolsot bibimbap and soups (soondubu or jigae)".

Hilary G stated..."I love this place. The bibimbap is fantastic with the most fresh vegetables and chicken or beef that is well seasoned. The portions are very generous and the prices are reasonable. The service is excellent."

Karen G said..."I love this place. We had a small birthday party and they treated us great. The food was very good with nice portions. I had the spicy pork BBQ and loved it. Treat yourself. Try something compleatly different."

I dined on the Stone Bowl Bibimbap and it was incredible! The meal was piping hot, the vegetables were amazingly fresh and the flavors were super yummy! To top off a great experience, the staff was very friendly and accommodating to those who are new to the cuisine.

This is a must try kind of place, and we are lucky to have it right here in Kalamazoo!

You can find the The Korea SY House at 1844 South Westnedge Ave in Kalamazoo (49008) and their number is 269-382-6515. Check them out and I would love to hear what you think of the restaurant!
