When it comes to Hanwoo, the first thing that might pop into many minds is Hongcheon Hanwoo, but Jangsu Hanwoo is also very famous. Jangsu Sky Beef is located in the downtown area of Insa-dong and uses top-quality Korean beef delivered directly from Jangsu.
Jangsu Korean cattle grow in a natural environment surrounded by cedar forests and roam through fields. They have a strict breeding and management system that ensures the highest conditions for the cattle.
Looking at the signatures of celebrities who have dined here makes you more curious about the taste of the beef!
Jangsu Sky Beef is different from ordinary barbeque restaurants. As soon as you enter the store, you will be treated by a specially decorated Jangsu beef display.
The temperature and preservation methods of the beef inside the special refrigerator are very particular so the best flavors are extracted from the beef.
There is also a cafe that gives off rural vibes where you can enjoy traditional tea and fresh juices unique to Jangsu, but it is currently closed due to the pandemic. Jangsu Sky Beef also has separate rooms available for groups of more than ten people, so groups can dine in private and without the worry of bothering other guests.
The seats are all spacious and comfortable and the tables are squeaky clean, unlike the typical barbecue restaurant that has greasy tables.
There are also a total of 9 rooms that can seat 4 to 8 people, suitable for family dinners or guests who want to dine in a quiet space.
What surprised me the most was the advanced technology the store had. The food is delivered by a robot, and as long as the settings are set correctly, they do not make mistakes!
Unique from other restaurants, the side dishes here are very different! Instead of ordinary kimchi, they have pickled tomatoes, peppers, lettuce, carrot apple porridge. I was a bit wary that the carrot apple porridge would not taste good, but it was sweet like pumpkin porridge. It felt healthy and nutritious.
Even the pancakes that are just a side dish aren't soggy but they are so crispy and delicious, you can't help but get another bite.
The seaweed soup is made with a rich beef broth and has pieces of tender beef in it. It was so delicious that the owner joked that people come here just for the seaweed soup.
Our group ordered the sirloin and filet, and the owner gave us a complimentary cut of ribeye cap, so we could compare more cuts of meat! The marbling of the fate is evenly distributed and almost looks like a flower pattern.
In order to cook the cuts of beef to bring out the best flavors, the temperature of the grill is controlled precisely.
Once you take a bite of a piece of sirloin, you can tell that the fat on the sirloin is distributed evenly, and with each bite, and a rich aroma of beef coats your tongue. The owner grills the beef with immaculate skill, just slightly searing the surface of the beef.
First, eat it on its own to get a feel of what the beef tastes like, and then dip it in mustard, sea salt, or Himalayan salt to add more flavor.
The tenderloin, otherwise known as fillet mignon, relatively has less fat and has more of a chew. It was perfectly grilled for 5-7 minutes on each side. An aromatic beefy flavor coats the inside of your mouth.
The freshly grilled beef has a shiny sheen of grease that makes it look even more appetizing.
The ribeye cap is located under the shoulder of the cow and is carefully removed from the ribeye. Because of its rarity and exquisite flavor, it is said to be the essence of beef.
The steak pieces are delectable whether it is eaten on its own or with other vegetables like chives or lettuce. If you like a clean beef flavor, just pinch some salt on your piece.
What's even better is that you get a serving of radish kimchi fried rice, or cold noodles if you order two or more orders of the beef.
Are you not satisfied after just two orders of beef? Order some bulgogi, a Korean traditional beef dish that contains thinly sliced beef, glass noodles, enoki mushrooms, carrots, and onions. This is a balanced and nutritious dish that both Koreans and foreigners order often.
Even the bulgogi here is made with the same high-quality beef.
