Went to Purple Yam (Pilipino/Korean fusion) on a Thursday at 5:30, which is when they open. The place has a cool, easy ambiance with both booths and regular tables available. The bar is not visible but they do have a full bar. The service was very pleasant. The server knew all dishes and specials and recommended good wine and beer. We ordered Jap Chae with Beef ($15), which was delicious. Beef was tender, sweet potato (glass noodles) noodles and mushrooms were full of taste without overpowering the beef. You can share this dish. We also had Pa jun (shrimp fried pancake)($12), which was flavorsome and properly fried without it being drenched in oil; the half cut shrimp inside the pancake were excellent (dish is cut into 6-7 pieces – can share). Then we tasted the Beef tapa salad ($12), with greens and mango. The salad satisfied my husband’s love for leaves and desire for good slices of red meat. Daily dumplings ($8), which came in 6 fried pieces with sauce were also very good. For desert we had leche flan ($6), which I would not recommend if you LIKE leche, because leche taste was non-detectable. Flan was ok; and a Buko pie ($7), which was very good and delicate (also good for sharing); I would recommend coffee or espresso with that.
