Jang Won, a friendly new Korean BBQ in town

SHARE:

With Hyundai and Nissan factories employing thousands of expats, especially from Korea and Japan, restaurants catering to them are all over Chennai. While it is not that common in the Japanese restaurants, the Korean ones have an unwritten rule; bring a Korean or a Korean looking friend with you. If not, you will have to spend sometime explaining that you are aware that you won't get Dosa and Butter Chicken, ask why despite the empty seats they can't seat you and if luck runs your way, you may get a table.

Not at Jang Won. From the same team that runs Hokkaido comes a Korean counterpart. A compact restaurant with a grill on every table and two private dining spaces complete with karaoke where Indians without Koreans are also welcome!

But that is not what caught my eye.









As you can see from the pictures, the ingredients are the unbelievable. One look at the marbling on the tenderloin and your salivary glands are on overdrive. The fire is lit, the table is set and only time stands between your food and you.

To get over that agony, you can order yourself something that you don't have to cook yourself. Like the chicken or squid that has heaps and heaps of meat for about Rs. 750. And besides the quantity of chicken or squid, there is also a huge quantity of the masala that coats this. Ironically I was missing a dosa. Maybe someone did ask this at the other Korean restaurants and that led to the screening before entry! Oh, this dish is called the Yum Yum Chicken by the way.

So the meat cooks, some cuts cook really fast. Like the Ox Tongue. Some cuts of the tenderloin cook faster that the others, so you better watch out. You don't want to burn your expensive meat. Most of them are priced at about Rs. 1250 per plate. A pretty large plate. To put it in perspective, a 150 gram of similar tenderloin is priced at about  Rs. 22000 in Leela Delhi. Yes, 22k. The most expensive one here is 5k, but the ones at around the thousand bucks are pretty much up there.

The bibimbap was our last order. Ask for the one served in the stone bowl. It comes with the sauce and a soup, so you pour your sauce and mix it up to whip up a bowl of awesomeness assisted ably by the soup.

Only watermelon for dessert, so you better leave sometime and tummy space to head elsewhere before you call it a night.

Jang Won is in Kotturpuram.
