Something Korean + Japanese in Doha, Qatar - LITTLE YEE HWA RESTAURANT

Hey there little sister of Yee Hwa Restaurant!
I have been seeing constantly this restaurant across social media from Instagram to Facebook and it tickled my curiosity.  Why is this restaurant utterly famous among Filipinos? Maybe because the cuisine is Korean? In fact, Filipinos have been into the Korean craze (South Korea in exact) for quite some time now and this restaurant might be the quick fix to those cravings for Korean foods!.  Thanks to K-Pop and K-dramas as these have propelled us to get hooked on their interestingly sumptuous dishes!
This restaurant located along the food strip in Al Jazeera Street, Fereej Bin Mahmoud, Doha, Qatar is called LITTLE YEE HWA.  They added the word "little" since this restaurant is the sibling of the forerunning restaurant Yee Hwa Restaurant which is located in Al Nasr, Doha, Qatar.
This is a fusion restaurant.  An intermingling of Korean and Japanese cuisines, in general.  Though I have seen in their menu that they also have a dish from Taiwanese, Thai and Chinese cuisines.  
After a serious scrutiny on the menu, we decided to order the following, to be fair to both cuisines:  one Korean dish, one Japanese dish and one from their bestseller list.  Since it was a fusion restaurant, we obliged ourselves to sample on both cuisines. Plus, it has been a mandatory rule for us that whenever we dined at a new (not yet tested) eating establishment, always have a taste on one of the restaurant's cream of the crop or more commonly known as the bestseller.
The restaurant has 2-floor dining areas.  During this first visit, we were headed directly to the second floor since the ground floor eating area was reserved.  I was impressed that they have bigger dining areas upstairs and was more joyous to see that 90% of the customers were my kababayan (fellow countrymen).  And not forgetting to mention too that the staff was mostly Filipinos.  I am always delighted to be in a place surrounded with people of similar nationality as I am since it emits a feeling that you are home, yet in truth, we are all far, far, away from our homes.  Indeed, this is one happy place for the Filipinos, to chat, chill and chow on kimchi and other personal favorites.
What I love foremost with Korean cuisine is their culture of having side dishes in amplitude variety.  Unfortunately, my favorite Kimchi was unavailable that time. I was sort of disheartened since we intentionally opted for something Korean to satisfy my cravings for Kimchi and Bibimbap.  The wait staff was in comfort and assured to provide a generous amount of Kimchi when we visit again. Thank you! Looking forward to that!
Next that came in were the drinks.  We were determined to try their CLASSIC MOJITO.
The can of soda was part of the Bento Box set and that glass of ice was a special request of mine that the wait staff eagerly supplied.
MISO SOUP
Price: Complimentary

Taste Comment and Other Comments:
It has that typical taste of a miso soup.

This is the KOREAN portion of our order.

 BULGOGI BIBIMBAP
Price: 35.00 QAR

Taste Comment and Other Comments:
It contained a lesser amount of beef as compared to Tofu House's (across the street restaurant) Bibimbap.  However, Little Yee Hwa's recipe had an extra variety of vegetables making their version a more healthier one, in my opinion.  Plus, the serving size was quite abundant for my stomach, somehow can be shared for two when paired with other carbohydrate-rich dishes as well.  When homogeneously blended with the Bibimbap sauce, the taste of the mixture was spicy yet tolerable. Honestly, the hot sensation was more obvious than the specific tastes the sauce was trying to impart.

Abundance is the word.  Big cuts of salmon: crusty on the outside, subtly soft inside and tasty in and out. A bonus was the perfectly steamed Japanese rice!

The BESTSELLER pick went to the TAKOYAKI.  This dish is a well-known Japanese snack and the restaurant made their own rendition too. They named it: TAKOYAKI YEE HWA.
TAKOYAKI YEE HWA
Price: 27.00 QAR

Taste Comment and Other Comments:
There was a diced octopus inside, authentic Takoyaki indeed! This was a premium presentation with strip dried seaweeds and tobiko (flying fish roe) as toppings.  What I liked the least was the taste of the white cream, which was a bit too salty for my liking and the size of the balls were quite small than the ones I was used to eating back in the Philippines.

CLASSIC MOJITO
Price: 20.00 QAR

Taste Comment and Other Comments:
What was imprinted on my memory was the bitter aftertaste.  I suspected it was maybe because of the lime, since they used it instead of  lemons (but this statement though is to be further confirmed).
