Our owner, Bobby Yoon, started Yoon Haeundae Galbi in order to carry on his grandfather’s legacy and bring authentic Korean food from Haeundae, Busan, South Korea to New York City. The restaurant 해운대암소갈비집, which was established in 1964 and has been spanning for two generations, remains a local favorite in Busan.
All our short ribs are prepared through the Haeundae Cut, a special technique that was invented by Bobby’s grandfather to tenderize even the toughest of meats. This method is something unique to our restaurant, and really the core of what makes our meat different from other establishments.
Although our restaurant in NYC is a contemporary recreation of the restaurant in Busan, the traditional roots that Yoon Haeundae Galbi are built on remain intact. Our team has made a wholehearted effort to preserve these aspects in the midst of a city that modernizes by the second.
With that being said, we invite you to enjoy the YOON experience!
