Last weekend, we finally tried out this Korean place which a few bloggers have reviewed recently. I say finally as I've known about this place for the longest time since Splashie Boy used to work in Amcorp Mall but surprisingly he never took me to eat at this place whenever I ate lunch with him. I think it was because he wanted something quick and this place gets pretty packed during lunchtime. I've seen this place move around the third floor throughout the years: they originally started out with one lot, then expanded to two lots which weren't next to each other then they managed to get two lots together and now it seems they are back to one lot. It's kinda strange they cut down on their space as they were packed on Saturday night.
The menu features mainly sets - Korean, Japanese and Chinese are available. Prices are reasonable and below RM20 for a set. I ordered the Beef Bulgogi set (RM13.90+) which came with beef slices, onions and oyster mushrooms. They also served me spring onion kimchi, spring onion pancake, a small piece of tofu with a sauce made from chillies and soya sauce, an egg drop soup, white rice and watermelon for fruits. Everything is served to you on a tray with the rice being stored in the traditional Korean metal round box and metal chopsticks. The bulgogi beef slices are nice and tender. I like the sauce they cooked it in which is slightly sweet from the sugar and honey they use.
Splashie Boy had their Pibim Pap (Vegetables Mixed with Rice in Korean) with beef slices (RM12+) that came with the same appetizers minus the spring onion pancake. Not sure why they omitted the pancake. This version came with a fried egg, sunny side up on top and they had sprinkled the red pepper paste on top of it. This irked Splashie Boy a bit as he likes to have the sauce seperate so he can adjust the spiciness of the dish himself. They had added shredded vegetables like bean sprouts, carrots, cucumber and cabbage for this version.
Although this place offers great value meals in terms of their sets and I must admit their selection is the best Korean budget food I tasted so far, bear in mind their Korean food has been adjusted to suit the Malaysian tastes. This is evident as that night, only Malaysians were frequenting this place. Genuine Korean food tastes slightly different and if that is want you are hankering for, head towards the Korean Villages in Ampang and Desa Sri Hartamas for a taste of it instead.
