Yong Soo San Korean Restaurant (Closed!)

posted on August 5, 2006 at 11:45 am

RESTAURANT REVIEW:
Good Korean BBQ is one of my favorite things to eat. I have grown tired of Hae Woon Dae. The service and food have just been lacking in my recent visits there. Joel S. wrote in and suggested I try Yong Soo San on Buford Highway. I went with him and let him do the ordering. We started with some fried dumplings which were delicious. We ordered some beef and pork for the BBQ. They were both very good and the portions were immense. Good sides and great service. The place had recently been re-done and it was quite pleasant with the large windows surrounding out table. A huge improvement over HWD. Go check it out next time you are craving some BBQ.

    Tyler C., who joined Bliss and Joel S. for lunch, says, “It’s my favorite Korean bbq in ATL. A real treat!

    Be sure to check out the Korean baths downstairs before your next meal!”

    Bliss Help!

    I need a new recommendation for Korean BBQ!

    I kept calling Yong Soo San to no avail. My mouth was watering in hopes of a new place!

    Someone help!

    I feel your pain! I am in search of a new one. I am so bummed about YSS because I just found out about it thanks to Joel. It was really good. I am going to go see how hanwoori is holding up. Their pan chan are not great but the meat was good from what I remember. Also had a good spicy beef soup with rice balls.

    I thought that Hanwoori had closed down. Did it re-open? I have not had Korean BBQ at the “big cow” on Buford Highway (inside the perimeter at the old Mandarin House for old Atl Folks) but their bento boxes were good for lunch.

    I went to a recommendation of a Korean BBQ place in the back of Pinetree Plaza but they don’t serve chicken or seafood and my guest doesn’t eat beef or pork so we had to leave and went down to Korean Garden also in Pinetree Plaza for a nice dinner. They cooked the kal bee in the kitchen and we did not get to grill ourselves but the side dishes were very good.

    My father had his first Chinese restaurant in Pinetree Plaza in teh 70’s and Korean Garden use to be a diner and I would go own there as a child. I thought it was so cool as they had an open kitchen and I could watch them wash dishes. I later met the dishwasher as an adult at a party! What a small world!

    I called and they said they would be open in September? Maybe the closed for a renovation. I went to that place in Pinetree Plaza and was underwhelmed. The gas stoves just don’t give it the same flavor as charcoal. I also did not like how the server just hovered over you and did not let you cook. I do agree that the sides were pretty good. The sauteed romaine lettuce with chili pepper was a fave. The search continues…

    I went to a restaurant on Buford Highway next to 85, but cannot remember the name. But i do remember that the sign has a large pink pig on it I belive. It has great Korean BBQ though! If anyone remembers the name, I’d like to know.

    Do you know if Yong Soo San has reopened yet? And a number that actually works? Much appreciated if so (unless anyone knows the name of that restaurant with the pink pug on it-yummy!)
