"Whenever I talked to my friends about the food in Seoul Korea, they’d think that I flew to Korea when, in fact, I meant the nice cosy restaurant located in Taman Desa, KL. Operated by a couple of Koreans, this restaurant boasts of authentic and traditional Korean BBQ with a warm and rustic environment. Not only the owners, but the wait staff there were mostly Korean, giving us that out of the country feeling when we dined there.
Each table was well-equipped with a charcoal stove, complete with an adjustable smoke suction vent dangling from the ceiling. Since we were there during lunch, we had the choice of ordering from the Set Lunch menu as well, which was available daily including weekends. We ordered the Tuk Bokki set which came with ginger tea and dessert.
The Tuk Bokki (Korean rice cake) was spicy and savoury, with lots of vegetables in the mix. I would have preferred it more if the rice cakes were a little firmer and chewier, otherwise, the taste was pretty delicious.
The amount of side dishes (banchan) given was rather generous, with the usual suspects – kimchi, pancake, anchovies and seaweed, among others. But I was impressed that they also provided jelly fish as one of the sides! Also, when you order above a certain amount, you’d get a portion of steamed egg for free, just like we did.
The meal ended with a glass of ginger tea and a piece of sweet watermelon each as the dessert. Overall, we were pretty satisfied with the quality of the food as well as the reasonable price tag of each of them. I wouldn’t mind coming back again especially for the delicious BBQ pork!"
