Once I get a new food spot to try on my list, I can’t get it out of my head. When some friends reached out to me to have a chill evening at home with some nice food, I knew it was time to give Iyagi a try. Iyagi is Korean for “Story”: so let me tell you all about it. Located just a few steps from Saint-Boniface Square, Iyagi is a small Korean kitchen where you can order as a takeaway some of the most popular (and delicious) dishes from traditional Korean cuisine. From side dishes like dumplings to main dishes (available in medium or large portions) like Bibimbap and Bulgogi, all dishes are served with freshly cooked vegetables, steamed rice, and homemade sauces.
I personally wanted to try the Bossam, sliced pork meat cooked with Korean miso and Belgian beer with rice and vegetables: it tasted like Korea and Belgium just had a baby and it was gorgeous! For true lovers of the Korean tradition, Iyagi makes its own kimchi. I got a kimchi Jon or kimchi pancakes, and it just felt like the icing on the cake. If not really willing to wait to get home, and just want to devour your choice ASAP, you can sit down at the bar l’Athénée (just a few meters away) and enjoy your food with a nice drink!
