Last night a friend of mine and I met up for a Korean dinner. We’ve been to this restaurant before; for a Thanksgiving meal, in fact. Hai Woon Dai Korean Restaurant is tucked away near a random intersection in south Nashville and so far, my friend and I both agree it features big portions, many side dishes (included with your meal) and you’ll either leave very full, or with a “to go” box. The side dishes have a variety of food, from spicy broccoli to square-cut potatoes to seasoned tofu.
My dish was the Ramyeon noodles with dumplings. It’s just about the only thing they had close to a vegetarian/vegan meal, so that’s pretty much the only strike I’d have against it. My friend got JapChe Bab. The clear noodles on her plate were tough to gather up, and my meal was steaming hot for the first 15 minutes. Neither of those are a complaint by any means, because once we got it all figured out, it was delicious!
If you like Korean food or you’re feeling adventurous with your appetite, you should try this place. It’s on near the corner of Haywood Lane and Antioch Pike.
