Uncle Jang Korean Restaurant @ Solaris Mont Kiara, KL
Went to Uncle Jang Korean Restaurant after an important mission accomplished, to give ourself a treat and reward. Why choose Uncle Jang? I heard this restaurant for quite some times, but no opportunity yet to give it a try. So we decided to join the happening crowd in Solaris!
The restaurant is located at the upstair of Maybank, which is a very unobvious place. The design of the restaurant is rather simple and not much decorated, perhaps the owner want to bring out the eating atmosphere at a Korean home.
But still, unobvious location+simple design=the restaurant is surprisingly crowded. I am so curious to find it out.
That is the area where customers can sit on the floor and enjoy their meal just like in Korean Drama. The big pan in the centre table is the focus of tonight! We got 7 peoples tonight, they don't allow us to use the cute table.
Before goes for the main course, they served us some side dishes and condiments. The kimchi is good, everyone of us love it! The lettuce, garlic and fermented beancurd sauce is for the main course (maybe you can eat it raw and alone just like that, but will it be weird?)
|Mushroom Sari RM8|
|Dak-Galbi (Hot Spicy) - RM22 (1 person)|
The portion above is for two person. They mixed all the ingredients in the big hot pan and stir-fried infront of us. So everyone of us have to wear a red apron provided by the restaurant! The mixed ingredients include cabbage, rice cake, potato and chicken chop. The hot spicy version of Dak-Galbi is extremely HOT! Advice: please get yourself a normal version if you are not so good to eat hot and spicy.
|Dak-Galbi (normal) - RM19 (1 person)|
This is the normal version, portion for three! Despite it is also chilies paste added, the spiciness is more acceptable compared to the super hot and spicy one. The manual for ordering is stated out in the menu.
Dak-Galbi order to eat (Step-by-by) :
1) Choose and Order hot spicy or nomal spicy on your taste.
2) Choice and Order your Additional dishes (sari)
3) At first, Enjoy the rice cake and then chicken with vegetables.
4) After finishing 2/3 of your meal order fried rice.
|Samgye-Tang (Chicken Soup with Ginseng) RM19|
The soup was flavorful. The soup had been cooked for hours and all the essence can be found in a bowl of soup. Nice! I found glutinous rice inside the chicken too, a portion of carbohydrate.
All in all, despite the not-so-strategic location and the simple decoration, the concept and idea is quite new in Malaysia. It is brought back by the Korean owner to Malaysia, a true and authentic style all way long from Korean.
