Also known as Stone Bowl House, this joint looks like your typical modern Korean restaurant –– floor-to-ceiling blonde wood and private cubbyhole dining areas. Woo Nam Jeong is different from most Korean spots, however. It offers a unique 12-course tasting menu, as well as the best dolsots (cast-iron pot dishes) in Atlanta. Fresh ingredients, such as mushrooms, eel, squid, and pork, are all seen in the variety of dolsots. Other popular bites include cylindrical rice cakes and dumplings in smooth broth and tender seafood pancakes. This restaurant needs to be your top priority the next time you have a hankering for Korean food.
The name "Yet Tuh" roughly translates as "the place where something used to be." Hang-ho Lee still relies on contacts in Korea to ship hard-to-find ingredients over, to make sure everything remains true to form. Lee's menu mashes up the unfamiliar alongside Korean staples, and shows that this is decidedly not your typical Korean barbecue or tofu house. Platters of simple grilled fish precede plates of mackerel boiled in spiced soy sauce; barley rice with vegetables and soybean paste follow an acorn jelly. There are elaborate stews and basic noodle soups, pancakes (pajeon), and roasted chicken hearts. Luckily, the staff, despite a bit of a language barrier, is happy to make suggestions.
