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.
Korean Food @ Neighbourhood Food Court
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!!
