Nak Won is an excellent example of both matriarchal entrepreneurialism and culinary tradition. Chef Tae Ok Lee serves up Korean comfort food just as she has for decades. We especially liked Chef Lee’s haemul pajeon, a thick crepe filled with scallions and shrimp. Its crispy outside/creamy inside texture and nice but muted sea food notes grounded the heat of the accompanying chili paste sauce.
While MagoGuide liked Nak Won and will happily return to check out the many soups in the voluminous and picturesque menu, we do not understand the restaurant’s elevation above so many other VFM Korean eateries in Beaverton. Check out our restaurant review and find out why.
