Jal Dae Ji @Korean Village, Ampang
Today I had the craziest attempt by taking my sister's mom to a Korean Restaurant. As far as I understand from my sister that her mom only likes dining places that have rice in their menu. So I thought Korean Cuisine should be something she would be worth to consider and try. Honestly, this plan has been always in my mind for a long time ago but I just never dare to make the move...not until today. Hehehe...
|This is the their stone oven for preparing the marinated meats.|
|The suction system is at the side of the grill plate. Really a bad suction system. Once you enter the restaurant, after 5 minutes you smell the BBQ. Not really an advice for you to come here for a dinner which you have an activity later.|
|Yang Gui @RM50.00++|
|Yang Gui is a Lamb Chop. Right now is in process.|
|It is all ready!|
Overall: 2/5 - As you can see the bones are more than the meat already cost RM50.00++, pretty expensive! Taste is so-so only where other Korean Restaurant I blogged so far has easily outclassed this.
|Mok Dung Sim @RM18.00++|
|Mok Dung Sim is a pork loin which is one of their signature dish for pork meat category.|
|After cut into smaller pieces, seems like not a lot left. Haha...|
Overall: 3/5 - It taste good but not special enough for you to leave a memory about it. As for the price, you have to agree that this is one of the cheapest.
|Dwae Ji Gal Bi @RM20.00++|
|Dwae Ji Gal Bi is known as pork ribs.|
|Usually we will be expecting lots of bones for pork ribs but there is only one bone in this pork ribs given.|
Overall: 3/5 - It taste the same like the Pork Loin even though it is one of their signature dish under the pork category.
|Dak Gal Bi @RM25.00++|
|Dak Gal Bi is a marinated chicken. Only one type of chicken dish under their menu.|
Overall: 3/5 - Their marinated sauce not special enough to beat the one I had at Restoran Han Woo Ri Garden which is located at Korean Village as well.
My sister's mom had her shocked of her life when she noticed that I brought her to a Korean Restaurant. She is very reluctant to accept food from other countries except Chinese food. You can say she is a very traditional minded lady. So in the end, she only ate a piece of each of the meat even though they taste quite good and she had a quarter bowl of the fragrance rice which is cost at RM5.00 per bowl.
It is all about her mindset that block her from trying food from other country. If I take away the food from this Korean Restaurant for her to eat, I believe she will eat normally like other food that she loves to eat. Anyhow, I feel bad that I somehow spoiled her dinner.
