Not to be confused with Jeon Mi Do in Hospital Playlist and Thirty-Nine, this is Mido Korean BBQ in SS2, Petaling Jaya, Malaysia.
In Petaling Jaya and in SS2, we are not short of Korean BBQs. Before After (a) Meal, go to Mido – a few doors back.
Getting to Mido Korean BBQ
Mido is directly opposite McDonald’s in SS2. Mido is easy to spot with it’s traditional Korean-looking front.
If you’re driving, parking is easy at the right timing. Find parking along Jalan SS2/64 and anywhere else in the commercial square of SS2.
Mido Korean BBQ
The interior has a traditional Korean house and restaurant feel. You’re not out of place, as there is a robot (on wheels) going around delivering your orders.
The seating arrangements are comfortable for 1 to 4 pax per table. If you’re eating in a big group, you’ve to split the group to 2 or more tables.
At the time of writing this, Mido had a few promotions running. Birthday babies get 1 free pajeon (Korean pancake).
We went on a Thursday and so happened it was ladies’ night. If there’s 1 lady in the group, you get 10% off from the bill. Then, if there’s 2 ladies in the group, you get 20% off from the bill. Then, if there’s 3 ladies in the group, you get 30% off from the bill. Finally, if there’s 4 ladies, you get 40% from the bill.
The promotion applied to a la carte dishes. We pounced on the beef, pork, and other dishes. You could either have the meat cooked for you or you can cook yourself at your own pace. We had the meats cooked for us.
We ate AUS Grade 5 Ribeye, Pork Belly, Pork Collar, Skirt Meat, Steam Egg, Corn Butter, Seafood Pancake, Kimchi Military Casserole, Mini Kimchi Soup, and Mido Rice Balls.
This the season for kdramas – Uncontrollably Fond, Doctors Crush, Another Oh Hae Young, and W. With all the craze about the hot actors and beautiful actresses, awesome attractions (Jeju Island), and kdrama love stories; let’s not forget Kfood. Fancy feeling close to Korea? Here are some Korean eateries to check out in Petaling Jaya.
Dae Jang Gum
Dae Jang Gum is a Korean BBQ Restaurant. It is presently located in Seksyen 14, Petaling Jaya. Previously, when we went there for lunch, the restaurant was at SS4D, Kelana Jaya.
One Sunday afternoon, after church, my friends and I went for lunch at SS4D. Albeit being a Korean BBQ Restaurant, we were intrigued by its set lunch menu FOR RM14 & RM17. We ordered their pattaya fried rice set, bulgogi set, and dak dulgogi set.
At the sound of RM17, it sounds somewhat hefty and pricey on hindsight. However, they were definitely worthwhile, because of their quality and quantity. Quality was Korean standard. Quantity was due to their humongously many side dishes. On top of that, rice and soup were also provided.
We left with a Korean tastebud, a satisfied stomach, and a lighter wallet.
Fancy some Korean food for dinner? There’s a Korean Food stall in the East Wing of the Neighbourhood Food Court in Kota Damansara. Going by its name, it only and literally served Korean food. It focuses mainly on ala carte dishes. It’s Kimchi Jigae and Pork Bulgogi were delicious, satisfying, and fulfilling. The Kimchi Jigae was spicily cold. There were a lot of pork in the Pork Bulgogi.
Moim Modern Korean Cuisine
Want to eat your Korean food in a little bit more comfort? Then, head on over to Moim Modern Korean Cuisine in Atria Shopping Centre. There’s air-con and more comfy chairs. Of the 3 Restaurants listed in this post, THIS Korean restaurant is #1 in terms of originality. “Originality” here is by way of the amount of variety of dishes listed on the menu. There were a variety of Korean food which I’ve not seen or heard before… This is what makes this particular restaurant the most unique.
All in all, despite it being commonly termed as Korean food, I only consider it “true” Korean food when it has met this ONLY criteria. The chef has to be a Korean. This adds more flavour, meaning, and attachment to the Korean food. Therefore, this brings me closer to Korea. Annyeong!!
