Soohburae is located in Seoul's financial district, Yeouido. The restaurant is set up with private dining booths for diners to enjoy their meals without having to deal with noise from other tables. It's a great place for dates and gatherings with family, friends or coworkers. For dinner, Soohburae offers different kinds of beef for BBQ, as well as several set course menu choices. We had a party of 4 and we decided to order the Soohburae Saeng Galbi Course 숯부래 생갈비 코스. The course came with 2 meats, marinated and non-marinated beef short ribs, and 9 different dishes. All their dishes were plated nicely and some were decorated pretty flowers, which added an elegant touch. For each of the food that came out, we could tell that they used the freshest ingredients and that the chefs prepared them in the tastiest way.

Their menu was organized and very straightforward.

Everyone was served small bowls of jook, rice porridge, and dongchimi, radish water kimchi.

Beautiful assortment of seafood with yukhoe, Korean steak tartare, in the middle. The seafood was very fresh and the yukhoe was extremely delicious!

Salad with tomatoes drizzled with a light vinaigrette.

Thinly sliced potatoes with walnuts.

Crispy Korean pancakes. I loved how crispy the texture was.

Pan-fried shrimp coated in egg with minced vegetables.

Mixed green salad with thin slices of beef, tofu, walnuts, green, yellow and red peppers.

Saeng galbi, non-marinated beef short ribs 생갈비. Totally drool-worthy! The marbling on the beef made it very juicy an flavourful.

When the beef is partially cooked, the waitress comes to cut the beef into bite sized pieces.

Everyone received a bowl of miyeok guk 미역국 which is Korean seaweed soup with oysters. I've had a lot of miyeok guk in my life, but this was different! The miyeok (seaweed) was stringy and had a slimy texture. I'm not sure what kind of seaweed this was or what it's called, but all I know is that I loved it. The oysters enhanced the broth with delicious sea flavours.

Yangnyeom Galbi, marinated beef short ribs 양념갈비. The marinade was light and didn't overpower the flavours of the beef. Perfection!

Prawn platter with vegetable puree.

Mul Naengmyeon, Korean cold noodle soup 냉면. Each of us had the choice between mul naengmyeon and doenjang jjigae, soybean paste stew. I ordered the mul naengmyun and it was served with a boiled egg and slices of cucumber and radish, which was very refreshing and a nice way to end our meal.

We were very full and satisfied after eating all the dishes that came out. It was truly a great experience trying all the different foods that were a part of the set course. I would recommend this restaurant and their set course menu to those that want to dine with a group of friends and eat a variety of delicious dishes.
