One day, I was out with BFF Rachel to attend an event in Pavilion. Since both of us skipped breakfast and nibbled on snacks only at the event, we decided to head out for a hearty warm meal at Bulgogi Brothers Korean BBQ Restaurant, along with a few girls from the event as well for an early dinner.
I’ve heard a lot about Bulgogi Brothers for its Korean BBQ and scrumptious meals. Since most of us are Korean foodie, we didn’t hesitate and waited to be seated. After asking for their best signature and recommendations, we made our order. There were 5 of us, instead of ordering varieties of dishes or BBQ, we all ordered the same dishes =..=||| all 5 of us. Well, great minds think alike. Heh..
While waiting for our orders, we were given a complimentary starters of steamed sweet potato, sweet corn and edamame (green soybeans).
Drinks here are slightly pricey but I find it reasonable for a restaurant. Ranging from RM5.90 for soft drinks, fruit juice and Korean specialty drinks at RM7.90, coffee ranging in between RM7.90 to RM9.90 and RM14.90 for beer.
Korean Shik Hye & Watermelon Juice @ RM7.90 each
I am one who like to try out each eateries’ specialties, they won’t go wrong with dishes they are specialised, right? Hence, I ordered their Korean Specialty drink called Korean Shik Hye.
Korean Shik Hye is a Korean sweet (very sweet) drink made of rice. Just like barley, except they use rice instead.
If I’m not mistaken, this Shik Hye is a type of dessert normally served after meal with a slice of fruit (eg. watermelon). Well, based on past dining experience in Korean restaurants in the Little Korean Village in Ampang.
Korean side dishes: Kangkung, pickled papaya, mashed pumpkin in between the lotus and spinach
Before our mains arrived, the side dishes were served and I was pretty disappointed with them because there were only 5 of them =/ Probably because I’m used to dining in little Korean restaurants in Ampang whereby they serve at least 7 to 10 side dishes (I CAN’T HELP NOT TO COMPARE THE SERVICES WITH KOREAN RESTAURANTS IN AMPANG!)
The Kimchi is mildly spicy and sour. I’d say this is one of the good ones you get from a Korean restaurant. We had a few servings of the Kimchi. Just wished that our rice came earlier so we can mix the Kimchi into the rice and eat it as a dish on its on!
Kimchi Jjigae @ RM22.90
Here comes our Kimchi Jjigae which is a type of Korean stew made of spicy Kimchi paste, tofu, rice cakes and thinly sliced beef brisket. The soup tasted hot (as in spicy) and sour. I like the flavours and wish it was slightly more spicy.
Some of the girls didn’t like it spicy so they requested for less spicy. The less spicy stew is more diluted as we suspected that they add in hot water into the Kimchi Jjigae stew. The taste? Of course it’s less spicy and at the same time also less flavourful. I prefer mine HOT and SPICY!
Thinly sliced beef & rice cake
The sliced beef were very thin and everyone was wondering how they managed to slice it so thin! So, I joked and said that they first freeze the beef and used a peeler to slice the beef. Everyone believed me.
