Some people are skeptical about the quality of food when they hear “chain restaurant,” but upscale Korean restaurant Woo Lae Oak, also known as “The House of Return,” has proven these stereotypes wrong. The first Woo Lae Oak to open in the U.S was in Los Angeles, California (it’s now closed), but it soon expanded to Illinois, New York, and, just recently, in Virginia. The popularity of this restaurant has been on-going since it first opened. Each of the Woo Lae Oak restaurants have a sophisticated and chic décor, but it’s not overwhelming to the customer. People can come in for a fancy event, or for a casual dinner with friends.
