What A Meal in Yae Won Ipoh

Upon Fernie's request, the four of us marched into Yae Won Korean Restaurant here in Ipoh. It was the first time for the boys and I, but second time for her. See, how blessed kids are these days... the place I have never been but she has ....

we opted for the chairs.. I cannot sit on the floor and eat
my legs will be cramped in just matter of minutes

before the food arrived... all smiling away...

then came the glass noodles..korean style..

Fernie recommended this to us.. she said very nice

but to me and the boys... no comments!

first, must do some stirring up first...

this is nice.. quite sweet...

the BBQ set... with beef and stuff

the lady boss told us to eat like this..
wrapped up the meat, kimchi with the vege..

and chucked everything into the mouth...

nice or not.. we walloped all...

though we are not used to the food...

nevertheless... we tried to finish them all...
stomach full but my pocket empty...
this meal cost us RM159.00!!
anyway, never try, never know...
once is enough for me.. for us...


  1. Nothing more irritating then paying for a meal that you didn't really enjoy, even if it did fill the stomach.

  2. at least now you can say you have tried Korean food before LOL

  3. are they mostly sweet tasting only? if me i can't dine there lo... wiliam doesnt take beef :(

  4. Nice or not, also must give it a try. Still looking for a person who is willing to foot he bill for me. Preferably male.

  5. patty: we paid to experience new things.. new food..

    kathy: once bitten twice shy? :)

    merryn: no they are not sweet, they have beef and pork.. mixed...

    sjb: yes, that one is alright...

    mingna: who is the lucky man, i wonder...

  6. Hehehehe... I know what Fernie makan... she makan 'Bibimbap'... 'Korean mix rice'. LOL!

  7. everything looks delicious. I've eaten the glass noodles before, it's okay not bad. Claire I've added your link. can you please add mine too? thanks :-)

  8. I must say that most of this does not look appetizing at all! some looks pretty ickky! But they give you a lot!

  9. Never mind...I don't mind spending if it is for a special occasion...but not on normal days. Bankrupt.

  10. cleff: u know better! i have misplaced the bill.. otherwise i would hv know the names of the dishes!

    Sam: thanks, i do it this evening!

    ginny: yes, i think i m not used to it too... takes time i guess :)

    stp: ok, when u come ipoh, it is a special occasion, do let me know what u want to eat!! hahahaa..

  11. it's good to try once..nice food though..

  12. actually korean food is quite nice. too bad i dnt eat spicy foods so end up tried once only. :/

  13. RM 159,, plus beer or not? if got then i consider can go lah,if not i cannot lah,, just joking,

    never tried korean food before, i think i would prefer Japanese.

    take care now, i see those pictures, i realized one thing,, good food makes good family hahahah. a good mother makes better family, right?

  14. Hehehe... better than never tried once :)

    I'll contact you via e-mail...

  15. But 4 person ok lar. RM159. :D

    The food there looks delicious and the portions are huge.

  16. wenn: if used to it, then nice..

    carol: once is enough for me here..

    eugene: no beer, just the tiger jug..

    lina: yeah i got it!

    tekkaus: yes, we were very full actually.. :)

  17. I haven't try Korean food before.... none of my family members are adventurous for this cuisine. I think after they read your entry, they will agree with you on the food review part. And never stepped their foot in any Korean restaurant. Hahaha!

  18. Have not tried korean food before..I am not fancy of those Kimchi too.

  19. yvonne: i think most of us prefer japanese food to korean.. :)

    mery: maybe we havent tried the good ones yet... :)

  20. Yea not many people can get used to Korean food.. my friend went to Korea last time and he said 'Korean food sucks'! LOL!

  21. Oh I like the rice... called Bibimbap or something. Korean food is not too bad lah... not the best but acceptable to me. I find the method of cooking healthier :) And the variety of side dishes for you to nibble on... fun wat hehe :)

  22. I have never tried Korean food before, am eager to try but the price is a turn-off for me.

  23. Wow, what an expensive experience, but never mind if you can afford it!

  24. Claire, your dotter very leng loi..just like mommy;-0)

    I have never tried Korean food, must try it someday after seeing all the delicious foods from your post.

  25. sweetwitch: chinese food is still the best, right? we are biased.. hahaa..

    chloe: yeah, less oil i think..

    alice: expensive.. but can try if havent...maybe u like it...

    ipohgal: i m always curious about new food..

    sarah: then u should go and try them.. maybe u like it!

  26. I have been to Korean rest once too and i had something similiar like ur gal..but i m not a fan of Korean foods..LOL

  27. I like Korean food a lot. Next time go for their ginseng soup.

  28. How much is the bbq set? Probably you choose some expensive one? The last time I went to Korean food, we ordered 2 bbq set (1 pork and 1 beef, both not the expensive one), 2 vegetarian rice, cost us around RM110.

  29. at least u guys tried! hahahaa... hmmm, 4 of u, 150 ok rite?

  30. Yes, the rice in the stone is a must have items. I love that. I had once in Korea, taste really really good.

    RM160 for 4 person i think still ok, usually Korean dinner quite expensive.


Thank you, readers!
