So how do I review and publish to the world about my parents business of almost fifteen years? The whole idea behind Effort Chicago is that we try to write about honest and non-bias stories, reviews, interviews, etc. So I will try to review Yeowoosai as if it were any other bar in Chicago.
First off, it’s a Korean American restaurant and bar, the food is delicious, and my favorite meal is the popcorn chicken and the kimchi fried rice with cheese. That’s right, it’s fried rice with mozaralla cheese on top! Where else will you find that? The atmosphere has a slight taste of a club vibe, but nothing too extreme, it is afterall a restaurant so expect to be seated. The music is a mash up of Korean pop music with American hip hop, pop, electro, house, and even some alternative rock music. There are a total of seven television screens, two of them being about 120 inches, and one of them being a 42 inch plasma HDTV set. Unfortunately there isn’t HD programming, but the TV isn’t the primary focus of Yeowoosai.
The primary focus is the food and some of the drinks are the big stars here as well. The cocktail sojus are delicious and they come served in a pitcher. I’ve only had strawberry and watermelon flavors. When ever I bring my friends over, they usually describe it as, “Jolly Rancher in a liquid form with alcohol”. Price of beer is at $3.50 which is considered cheap, but the mixed drinks can be a bit expensive. Please understand that the food is meant to serve 2-4 people, so please don’t come alone.
So if you’re looking for a unique experience and something far different from the regular bars and restaurants, then I would suggest you to check out Yeowoosai. Don’t be afraid of the Korean writings and the culture, afterall we’re all very welcoming. If you come check out Yeowoosai, mention that I told you to check it out, I’ll let my parents know to give you a free drink on me!
