The spacious, friendly Dae Jung Kum serves some of Dubai’s best Korean food. The high-ceilinged interior is cordoned off into sections with wood screens, giving the place a traditional feel with a modern slant, and the food is fresh and fabulous, incorporating relatively simple ingredients of Korean cooking. The barbecue dishes are the highlight, with huge slabs of meat carefully marinated and lovingly sliced by a friendly server. The pancakes are also wonderfully fluffy with crunchy green onion (make sure you try one with the restaurant’s signature sauce: a fantastic concoction of sweet and spicy). You’ll fare best if you steer clear of the fried stuff – the dim sum is a little too scorched – but don’t leave without sampling a glass of delicious chilled cinnamon tea.
