Yee Hwa (Herndon) Chowlunch next Week?

PollyG | Sep 8, 2004 12:38 PM

Hounds interested in a lunch at Yee Hwa, a fairly new Korean place in Herndon, next week (Tuesday, Wednesday, or Friday, noonish) should contact me at Please state your preferred day.

Yee Hwa is indeed related to the one downtown, but under separate management. We've eaten there 5 times now and the food is consistently good and authentic. It is high-end, meaning that the interior is clean, nicely decorated (except for the celophane covers on the white leather chairs), and you get about 8 banchan (the side dishes)and complementary persimmon/ginger tea at the end of the meal.

The food is on a par with Hee Been (prior to their remodeling) or Sorak Garden. The heat levels on the hottest dishes are about perfect: assertively hot, but not so much that you cannot taste the food.

Prices are in the usual range for high-end Korean, meaning that the damage, if we take the usual hound approach to stuffing ourselves silly by ordering too much, will be in the $20-35 range.

If you're more interested in a dinner, let me know. Dinner would be a chowpup friendly event.
