How would you like if you have a Korean restaurant in a sea of Bak Kut Teh shops? Nice ain’t it? Myung-Ga Korean Restaurant is located at Taman Intan, the place where lots of BKT restaurants like Teluk Pulai (Claypot) Bak Kut Teh and Fong Keow (Pottery) Bak Kut Teh are situated. I was there a couple of weeks back for my birthday dinner.
There are 9 cheop of banchan. Nothing spectacular (hence no photo of banchan) except for one which is cockles with chilies… this is something I’ve not seen in Korean restaurant before.
Dwaeji galbi (marinated grilled pork ribs) 200g @ RM35.00. Yum!
I have a question here. Why don’t we get to grill the meat ourselves in Malaysia’s Korean restaurant? I did my own grilling when I was in Seoul and Jeju Island. I think it’s more enjoyable this way.
Haemul pajeon @ RM30.00. Delicious. The quality is as good as the one from Korean BBQ Seoul Garden Restaurant.
Kimchi jeongol @ RM60.00. Jeongol (전골) is a type of casseroles. The jeongol looks small right? Just camera trick. It’s actually a large pot about the size of a steamboat but not that deep. Its main different with jjigae is that jeongol is more elaborate and contain more than 1 ingredient. In this kimchi jeongol it contains kimchi (of course), pork, tofu, enoki and mandu (dumplings). The broth is spicy, sweet and sour at the same time. Now this is my kind of food!
We added plain noodle in the jeongol @ RM5.00 (tsk expensive!). Although I like adding noodle in jeongol, I would like to try with rice next time.
And while waiting for the noodle to cook, we had a good time watching the MV on TV which incidentally is in front of me. Icing on the cake is having Gangnam Style playing while I enjoy my birthday meal. Thanks Psy. Hehe How come they have MBC?
Seriously our order of 3 main dishes is too much for 4 person. We couldn’t finish the jeongol and hence tapau the remaining home. It taste so good the next day.
Service charge @ RM13.00. Plain water is free of charge. Total come to RM143.00.
Price on the menu is on the heavier side which really discourage me from giving it another go. Although our dining time were near closing period, I really do not appreciate the staff sitting next to us chit-chatting away like no tomorrow. It sorta spoil the mood a bit.
Would not hesitate to go again if I can find people to treat me. LOL
