Golden Swan Motel

3 years ago

I know, the name sounds awfully shady and suspicious, but don`t be fooled folks! This tiny establishment found off the beaten path is run by Koreans and is inundated with Korean golfers and Korean church-goers on weekends. While the restaurant is part of a somewhat shanty motel, the food is truly superb and seriously speaks for itself; it`s home style Korean food at its best. You can really tell the difference in how this food is prepared and seasoned when you compare it to other Korean restaurants in bigger cities. It tastes like food your grandmother would cook and just makes you feel good inside.

One word: EEL. Everyone must go there and try the grilled eel. It is absolutely divine. My recent lunch stop at Golden Swan Motel (which was a detour on the way back from a July 4th weekend road trip) came out to $64 including tax and tip, for two people. Yes it`s a bit pricey, but for that amount you get a bowl of purple rice, kimchi bean paste stew, a plethora of Korean side dishes that are seasoned very well, lettuce wraps and a platter of freshly grilled barbecue eel accompanied with sliced garlic and jalepenos. The eel is delicious--it`s different than eel from other restaurants in that it isn`t as `slimy` as other unagi and it isn`t dripping with overly sweet japanese BBQ sauce; the meat is simply undeterred for the most part and tastes how it should. The restaurant also offers other items, such as spicy seafood/fish stews.
