Daleville Seoul Food
For many, Daleville, Alabama is a drive by town that you bypass on your way to and from Dothan and Enterprise. But, if you have some time to turn off 84 and venture into town you will find several hidden food gems, several of which offer dishes that you won’t find anywhere else in this area. Korean House is one of them. I was first told about it by a couple Army pilots that had previously been stationed in Korea. They would go eat there frequently when they began missing the food of which they had become so accustomed. My initial thought was, “What’s the difference between Korean and the other Asian restaurants around here?” After going there I understood that is like comparing tomatoes to potatoes. Korean House has fresh, unique flavors, mixing sweet, sour, tangy, spicy, and a little something you can only describe as “Damn, that’s good”. I started my meal with yaki mandu, which is a fried meat-filled dumpling. The outside edges had a nice crunch and texture, and the center is soft and filled with spicy and savory meat. For the main course I had bul go gi, a beef dish consisting of mushrooms, onions and carrots served with fried rice and an egg roll. The taste was very light and fresh. Your meal also comes with an assortment of kimchi that is made in-house. My favorite was the cucumber kimchi, which was slightly different than your standard cabbage, but it still had the signature spicy and crisp fermentation. You don’t have to book a flight to Korea to get some amazing Seoul food. Just head to Daleville!
