To be frank, I'm not a fan of Korean food, at least not in Malaysia, tried a few times but it just doesn't click. Authentic Korean cuisine back at their country during my visit last year was not bad though, especially their Kimchi, taste so much better compared to here. But still, how can my denial on that certain country of food influence my boyfriend's judgement? Hence, we have decided to give it a trial, whether it gains a yes or no in Jason's opinion.

But still, how can my denial on that certain country of food influence my boyfriend's judgement? Hence, we have decided to give it a trial, whether it gains a yes or no in Jason's opinion. Side Dishes of Kimchi Cabbage, Kimchi Cucumber, Bean Sprouts and Pumpkin Pancake.
I would push the Kimchi Cabbage aside in some Korean restaurants because of its overly pungent flavor but not in Won Korean Dining. This was definitely not my best Kimchi, but for someone who didn't like Kimchi to get her plate refilled, I think they did a pretty good job. Kimchijigae (Kimchi Stew) RM22
Love might not be the word, but a simple yes and nod will do. Again, it was balanced with spiciness and natural taste of the ingredients. Salted olive oil, spicy bean paste, raw garlic and green chili. Samgyupsal (Roast Pork Belly) RM30 each
Minimum 2 portion to place the order. Such beautiful texture of the meat to feast the eyes. Aromatic with crisp texture, succulent yet not that oily at the same time.
In Korean restaurant, whenever one orders grilled meat, the attentive staffs would always drop by, check on the meat, overturn it and even cut it into smaller pieces for easier consumption. Though this might be a point of good services, but it is not in my opinion. I wouldn't want anyone to interrupt us during conversation then we have got this very awkward moment of staring into each other or simply looking at the action of the staff. That.Silent.Moment.
With green lettuce as base, we've added in julienne veges then mix and match the sauces before putting the delicious pork belly meat on top. We have also tried another way of eating by simply dipping it into salted olive oil.
Overall, it was a good Korean dining experience for both Jason and me. Nothing much to complain about.
