Incheon - Seven course Korean Tasting Menu on Columbia Pike in Annandale


Recommended Posts

A quick decision to visit Incheon a couple of weeks ago.  Impressions from the dinner.

Seven courses: Different takes on traditional Korean food. Some were quite good (Haemul) made with (Bai Top) sea snail.  Not traditional, but very tasty.

Most interesting course: NY Strip steak nicely rare and very tender with goguma puree.  Totally unexpected and almost mee-guk in presentation.  Came late in the dinner courses which was a shame because we couldn't finish it.

We left pondering;, "how long can you serve the same menu before running out of clientele?"  We asked the chef how often the menu would change but really didn't get a definite answer.

Venue is nicely done and the graphics projected on the walls was interesting but I'm not sure exactly why it was done.

Overall impression: Depending on how often the menu changes (or is modified to offer ala carte options in addition to the tasting menu) will receive another visit.

Thanks for sharing, the menu does look good. I would agree they will need to either change the menu regularly or offer other options. Interesting note: I was up in Rhode Island recently and had a nice order of snail salad from Twin's Pizza. It's made with sea snails aka whelk aka scungilli. (I.e., it's an italian or at least an italo-american dish up there) This Korean dish is the FIRST time I have seen anything close anywhere outside RI.

Sea snail is quite common (well, not every day but now and then) in Korean cuisine. If you'd like to pick some up, H-Mart has Bai Top on the shelf.
