For Korean, SooWoo is so good


Everyone knows Japanese cuisine but rarely is Korean center of the plate. It should be.

Recently I was invited to visit the Japanese and Korean steakhouse SooWoo to sample some real Korean food. Bok, the owner, has created a niche in authentic Korean food. 

Authentic entrees burst with spicy and unique flavors. I have to say the most favorite sampling I had was the Kimchee Soup (pork and tofu with cabbage ) and the Haemool Pajun (seafood pancake, pictured above).

Small side servings, from 7 to 9 separate accoutrements, are typical of a Korean meal, besides the main entrees.

There are three locations in South Florida and Bok said he’s expanding to other locations. 

Not only do they have authentic Korean food but also Japanese hibachi as well as some fantastic sushi. I highly recommend it.
