We happened to pass by one day at Lecka-lecka on the way to watch movie and decided to try out this gelato kiosk.

 

 
After 8 (Mint & Chocolate) (left), Weekly Special (Chocolate Brownie) (right)
The weekly special of chocolate brownie has left us rather good impression with its spongy brownie texture in between the chocolate gelato. After 8 on the other hand refreshed our taste buds.

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.

 
Side Dishes

Side Dishes

 
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)

Kimchijigae (Kimchi Stew)

 
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)

Samgyupsal (Roast Pork Belly)

 
Samgyupsal (Roast Pork Belly) RM30 each
Minimum 2 portion to place the order. Such beautiful texture of the meat to feast the eyes.

Samgyupsal (Roast Pork Belly)

 
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.

Overall, the food was tasty with fast preparation time.
However, the service was poor.
Staffs struggling to understand us while we asked for the mango tango cake several times.

I have always liked vintage items but funny how Amcorp Mall, the one with flea market of collectibles and antiques had skipped my mind. Together with Jason, we explored this treasure land on a weekend and stopped by for lunch at Haeun Khon, a small restaurant on the third floor that deemed to serve one of the most affordable Korean food in town.

 

 

 
Kim Chi Jjikeh (Boiled Kim Chi Soup) 韩国泡菜汤 RM15.90
Isn’t kimchi a must whenever we go for Korean food? This came in generous portion of enoki mushrooms, tofu, glass noodle, chicken and napa cabbage.
To tell the truth, I only began to accept Kim Chi after the trip to Korea due to their perfect balance between spiciness, sourness and mild burning sensation. Unlike my other friends that commented on how this is the best Kimchi they had or how the flavor stood out from others, I couldn’t feel anything but the burning sensation on my throat that was so much stronger than the spiciness and sourness I could taste from this stew of fermented vegetables soup. I stopped after a few scoops and even Jason struggled to finish this off.

 
Side Dishes
of Kim Chi (Napa Cabbage), Dried Anchovies and Chilled Tofu with Diced Chilies
The side dishes are non-refillable which is against the norm of Korean restaurants. Still, the portion of main dish is big enough to ask for second helping of these side dishes.

 

 
SamGyeTang (Korean Ginseng Chicken) 参鸡汤 RM17.90 for half chicken
Another piping hot soup in stew: Ginseng, jujube (red date) and glutinous rice beneath the spring chicken. The chicken meat was tender enough to fall off the bone by its own and I must say for that instance, this tiny restaurant was filled with none other but fragrant of these herbs. It very much resembles Chinese herbal soup. I still miss the samgyetang I had back then of thick and creamy texture of chicken broth along with a small complimentary cup of insamju (ginseng wine). Yet, one can’t complain as that would easily cost double of what Haeun Khon offers.

In contrary with what others might think of the lack-of-smile service, I find them to be more or less friendly. Perhaps it was the after peak lunch hour of our visit. Haeun Khon is definitely one of the cheaper alternatives for Korean food but I doubt if it can be crowned the best.

Sumo Onigiri @Kuchai Lama OK Aug 12, 2013

Categories : Japanese | Restaurant

 
Established on last year, Sumo Onigiri has 2 branches at Damansara Utama and Kuchai Lama.
Last week, we dropped by its Kuchai Lama branch occupying only half of the shop unit.

 
There are 3 types of seating at Kuchai Lama branch; whether to face beautiful red leaves scene, chat with friends or just sit at the bar counter watching the preparation process.

Add another RM2 for a set meal including chawanmushi and miso soup.
Green tea was on separate order.
Miso Soup

Miso Soup

 
Miso soup of spring onion, seaweed and tofu
Mediocre, but enough to warm the stomach.
Chawanmushi was smooth in texture yet expect no ingredient but plain steamed egg.

 
Would be better if the background music just stick on Japanese song only in creating the ambience of Japan.
