Ralph took us here on 15 Nov and boy, we did have a feast of authentic Korean food. I've been to a few Korean BBQ restaurants and this, by far, is the best!





#5 I think we ordered a lot - 6 entrees to share for our group of 4, but somehow we managed to finish it all.


#7 Chicken Jumuluk (RM28) | Daeji Galbi (RM28) – pork ribs

#8 Samgyupsal (RM28) – pork belly

#9 Our waiter was very attentive and nice. He changed our grill for us several times and came by often to unfurl the meat on our tabletop grill to cook. After the meat was cooked, he picked it up with tongs and cut it into pieces with scissors.


#11 The well-marinated meat was juicy and fatty, but it won't stop me from digging in.

#12 Dolsot Bibimbap (RM20) - a bed of fluffy white rice topped with vegetables, a fried egg on top, garnished with slices of seaweed and served in a piping hot stone bowl. I don't know if I'm more in love with bibimbap itself or the name, loll.

#13 Ojinguh Muchim (RM30) - seasoned dried squids with vegetables in a tangy spicy sauce and it was served cold. Of course, I only tried just one piece because I don't eat squid, and I wasn't tempted to eat more.

#14 Haemul Pajeon (RM38) - seafood-scallion fritter

#15 Our meal came with complimentary Doenjang Jjigae (soybean paste stew) which was lip smacking delicious.

#16 Our table was completely covered with a generous assortment of complimentary banchan (side dishes in Korean cuisine)! The most common banchan is the ubiquitous kimchi (fermented cabbage with chili pepper). I love tasty banchan; it's one of my favorite parts of a Korean meal.

And yes, banchan is supplied gratis and you can ask for seconds, even thirds, of your favorite banchan without getting charged extra.

#17 Mid-way through our meal, we received 4 complimentary large raw oysters with some chogochujang (vinegared red pepper paste).The raw oysters were fresh, slurp!

#18 Here's another reason why we love Bon Ga - the restaurant's Korean owner is a doll, I kid you not.

#19 Near the end of our dinner, he also gave us a bottle of Makgeolli (Korean rice wine) on the house!

#20 It's made from a mixture of wheat and rice, which gives it a milky, off-white color, and sweetness.

#21 "Gun bae!" (Cheers)

Korean BBQ is somewhat pricey in general, but this place will not put a dent in your wallet (subjective of course) and the bill only came out to RM189.20. We were well sated after the meal, left with full tummies and smiles on our faces (maybe from the Korean rice wine? loll).

By the way, our night did not end here; we then went to karaoke - a Korean karaoke joint! Stay tuned for the next post.

#22 "Now, everyone say KimCHEE for the camera!"
