What's On (Dubai) - - SEOUL I N THE CITY -

ED­I­TOR’S PICK! Owned by hus­band-and-wife duo An­nie Chung and Woo Young Kim, Hyu is a lit­tle gem. Or­der the dak­gang­jeong (Dhs50), or crispy pop­corn chicken cov­ered in sweet and spicy sauce. The bibim­bab (Dhs55), mixed rice with meat and veg­eta­bles, is the ul­ti­mate in Korean com­fort food, served with a big runny egg on top that is whisked through to cre­ate a sauce. Hyu’s ver­sion is one of the best we’ve tasted out­side of Seoul, served in a hot stone bowl. In true Korean style, ev­ery ta­ble is fit­ted with a grill for do-it-your­self bar­be­cue. Or­der the yangnyum­galbi (Dhs90), or mar­i­nated beef short rib, and in­hale the de­li­cious smoky fra­grance as it siz­zles away in front of you. To eat, wrap the meat in a let­tuce leaf, with a dab of spicy sauce and some gar­lic. Want your kimchi fix? Hyu’s kitchen pumps out about 50kg of the stuff a week. It’s served as a com­pli­men­tary side dish, but here’s a tip: some­times the restau­rant also sells it to cus­tomers to take home.
