I craved Korean food one night and the hub and I found this restaurant on Yelp. Five minutes later, reservation made, we were already on our way to check out this newly discovered restaurant called Purple Yam. Let’s just say we were glad we found it and last night, as I uploaded these pictures to this post, I told my husband that we should make plan to go back soon because I want to try a few more items on their menu.
Here are a few pictures I have to share with you guys…
This is cua pao, pulled pork in steamed bun with some cilantro as garnish…delish!
This is Pa jun (Korean scallion & shrimp pancake), awesomeness!
Bibimbap with edamame, burdock, beansprouts, spinach (made with Philippine heirloom rice from the terraces). No meat anywhere but trust me, you won’t even miss it!
Buko pie (young coconut) with macapuno ice cream. This pie was the perfect ending! It kept us thinking about this place after we already got home, cozied up and was sipping hot tea by the fire.
Turned out, Purple Yam is not exactly a Korean restaurant, it’s Filipino but you’ll see that their menu has a variety of Asian fusion dishes. It was relatively small, cozy and decorated with simple but beautiful elements. So, the whole point of this post is for you to know about this place and if you’re in Brooklyn, you should check it out! That’s all :)
