Good Korean BBQ in Zurich?

Does anyone know a good Korean BBQ restaurant in Zurich? Akaraka has some good reviews on Google - has anyone been there and would care to share their opinion?
Thanks!

Not really. Not unless you're desperate. I've resorted to making my own.

Re: Good Korean BBQ in Zurich?

I actually quite like Akaraka and Yumihana is definitely pretty good as well. I think both are operated by Korean owners.
But if you are Korean, don't expect it to be really good as in the Korean standard. But if you're desperate for some taste and can't really make it myself like me... they are great

Well if I want Korean food (and I do) I prefer the closest things to the real stuff, and not my version of Korean food.

안녕하세요
Annyeonghaseyo

I'm not Korean, but I'm like practically raised Korean. I'm like the boy raised by wolves, except by Koreans. So I know good Korean food. I'm a K-Town boy, and our Korean members know what that means.

I make Kalbi, Bulgogi, Chapchae, Chimchee-chigea, Mandoo, etc. The best Korean market I've found is Yumihana, yet pricey. There is a new Korean market in Waldshut-Tiengen run by a great lady with great products.

안녕
Annyong

I wouldn't put my hopes up if I were you. I've been to Yumihana once and will not return for seconds.

Thanks for the warning, but I'll go there just for satisfying my curiosity. Plus it's been ages since I've had a decent Korean BBQ.

Of course, I'm the same way. Also, it might be, that I've caught them on an off day or something. I'm eager to hear your feedback though.

I was at Yumihana on a hot summer day, and so they were serving naengmyeon as a special. All these people, Swiss I suppose were ordering it. And then they all returned it and said it is too tough and undercooked. The pissed off cook boiled it until it almost fell apart.

Just goes to show you they don't get it yet, so restaurants here have to drastically tone it down. It's sad. I gave up and just binge when I'm in L.A.

I heard of a good one in Heidelberg catering to the GIs.

Re: Good Korean BBQ in Zurich?

Hey y'all, you can put me and wifey down on the 'Yumihana is great' side of the tally. If that's where you stand, then I've got bad news: there is no Yumihana anymore. We tried to go a few days ago and there's a big hole where they used to be. A sign on the front says that there lease ran out and they didn't renew. It doesn't say that they moved either. I guess this just happened, but from how completely stripped down the location looks from through the window, they jumped right in and started tearing things to hell, probably to make room for something insanely posh, and not just merely too expensive like Yumihana was.

I spoke to one of staff at the Yumi Hana supermarket - she said they are looking for a new location, ideally near the supermarket, though nothing definite yet - so they might be back!
