Recently, my colleagues and I decided to explore the renewed dining area on the underground floor of Hyundai Department Store Apgujeong Branch. With great excitement, we visited Chef 정호영’s 샤브 카덴, a renowned restaurant known for its delectable shabu-shabu and sukiyaki menus. This was a day filled with anticipation for delightful flavors and memorable moments.
The Shabu-Shabu and Sukiyaki Delights:
As we perused the menu, we were intrigued by the array of choices. The main offerings were shabu-shabu and sukiyaki, with options to select either pork or beef, and even the choice between US beef and premium Korean beef, known as 한우 (hanu). The price of the dishes varied depending on the meat selection and cuts. The menu was clear, allowing us to make our choices with ease.
A Flavorful Decision:
With great anticipation, we decided to indulge in the shabu-shabu and sukiyaki experiences. Of course, there was no question about the meat selection – we opted for the finest 한우 (hanu), specifically 한우 1등급 채끝 (hanu 1st-grade tenderloin). With the decision made, we eagerly awaited the unique combination of flavors and textures that awaited us.
The Feast Begins:
Our order arrived, and we were thrilled to see the beautifully arranged platter of fresh vegetables and tender 한우 (hanu) slices. Each set consisted of a harmonious blend of vegetables and meat, perfect for a satisfying meal. The shabu-shabu pot, designed for one person, was more than enough for our group, so we chose to boil just one pot.
A Culinary Experience to Remember:
As we immersed the thin slices of 한우 (hanu) into the boiling broth, the delightful aroma filled the air, making our mouths water in anticipation. The tender beef cooked in the savory broth, soaking up all the flavors, created a heavenly sensation with every bite. The sukiyaki, with its sweet and savory broth, further elevated the dining experience, leaving us in awe of Chef 정호영’s culinary expertise.
Our visit to Chef 정호영’s 샤브 카덴 at Hyundai Department Store Apgujeong Branch was a delightful culinary adventure filled with premium 한우 (hanu) and an array of flavors that lingered in our memories long after the meal. The impeccable dishes and impeccable service made our experience truly unforgettable. For anyone seeking a memorable dining experience in Seoul, Chef 정호영’s 샤브 카덴 is undoubtedly a must-visit destination for a sumptuous shabu-shabu and sukiyaki feast.
