DUBUYO Smile Sep 29, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Korean | Restaurant | Seafood | Noodles


That’s the most common greeting that you would first come across whenever stepping into any Hanguk shiktang. Staying true to its heart and soul of Korean flair, DubuYo (previously known as Dubu Dubu) has currently just graced the new Quill City Mall in town with array of wholesome Korean recipes from delish Ramyeon, silky Sundubu Jigae to crowd’s favourite Dol Sot Bibimbap.




Unlike the conventional Korean restaurant, DubuYo is set up as a pork-free establishment, so all the food could be equally enjoyed by all walks of life as its meat produce are sought from a Halal supplier.

With an enticing menu revolving around urban food utopia of Korean cuisine with a fusion twist catch, as seen in some of the dishes which we shall review later. Dubu Dubu which essentially means tofu in Korean, aims to live up to the ideal destination for enthusiastic food lovers to taste harmony in a bowl, allowing them to experience distinct relishes of modern Korean food closer to home.The lunch sets offered here are very wallet-friendly too, starting from just MYR 11 nett! Guests could dine in anytime to enjoy scrumptious Korean fare within a cozy and brightly lit environment that is vibrantly immersed with its trademark of red and blue theme.

Assorted banchan of the day.

COLD SHIKYE (MYR 8) Traditional Korean Rice Punch

KIMCHI SOONDUBU JIGAE WITH SEAFOOD (MYR 20.75-ala carte/ MYR 23.10- set)

Each sundubu dishes is served with 3 banchan dishes of the day and a bowl of rice, with the option to have chicken or beef broth. Aptly touted as the epitome of a satisfying homey and soothing meal.


CHEESE SOONDUBU JIGAE SEAFOOD (MYR 20.75- ala carte/ MYR 23.10- set)

A rather tempting plate of light milky broth, these cheese-enriched stew seems to be much more palatably that somehow brings out more flavor from the seafood. Call it the cheeky yet appealing marriage of East and West rendition.


As for the Korean Gogi category, each set comes with 3 banchan dishes of the day, rice and soup. 

HONEY MUSTARD WINGS (MYR19.60- ala carte/ MYR 23.10- set)

Crunchy and crispy deliciousness glazed in sweet, tangy goodness


KOREAN SPICY WINGS (MYR19.60- ala carte/ MYR 23.10- set)

Dubu Dubu’s version of Korean Fried Chicken



Coming up next are some delish plates of Urban Favorites to whet your palate interestingly. Each set comes with 3 banchans of the day with a bowl of soup.


A Seoul favourite filed with delicious grilled meats infused with Dubu Dubu honey garlic sauce. One recommended dish for its uber juiciness and tender laces of meat, enhanced with the subtle sweetness of honey garlic, masshisoyo!


DOL SOT BIBIMBAP WITH CHICKEN (MYR 19.60-ala carte/ MYR 21.90- set)

Took to be the soul food for most people, one would never go wrong with this Korean staple food where a colourful assembly of assorted veggies and healthy toppings are beautifully arranged to fill up your tummy warmly. A choice of chicken or beef to go with.

However, I would be a happier jeune fille if I could have the egg cracked raw atop the assemblage, if not more runny for that silken nuance when mixed all together evenly in the hot stone pot that will eventually cooks up the egg.

SPICY SEAFOOD RAMYEON (MYR 19.60- ala carte/ MYR 21.90- set)

Springy ramen noodles cooked in a choice of chicken broth or beef broth.


SPICY TOPPOKKI (RICE CAKE) (MYR 17.30- ala carte/ MYR 18.45- set)

Strips of chewy Korean rice cake cooked in savory-spicy sauce to kill any hunger pangs in between, which is why this snack is a hit among Korean street food goers.

PAJEON (MYR 13.35- ala carte/ MYR 14.50- set)

This Korean Pancake definitely makes a good snack and sharing platter. Lightly pan-fried till crispy on the crust while remaining soft within. Thumbs up!



A healthier version of Asian-styled ‘crème brulee’, this inventive creation is dished up with velvet bean curd that is topped with fruity drizzles of Korean citron rinds, which adds sweet-sourness to this dessert alongside some brown sugar syrup.

Fancy a hearty choice of toothsome and fuss-free Korean delights? Then head over to DubuYo to try out their fascinating harmonious Korean flavours using the freshest ingredients to enliven your taste buds tastefully for a gleeful dining experience.

Cheers for now and Carpe Diem! ❤ℒℴѵℯ❤

Folks of Klang Valley

would be grinning gleefully from ear to ear as Olive Garden has finally greeted us onshore by making Malaysia as

its first Asia embarkment since May 2015 at Mid Valley Megamall. Located at

First Floor, this Italian kitchen is an American casual dining restaurant chain

that specializes in Italian-American cuisine, with restaurants spanning over

800 establishments worldwide.



Famed for their modern-day

Italian dishes, Olive Garden prepare their traditional Italian specialties

deliciously, made with only the freshest ingredients, that are perfect for

sharing with your loved ones. All food prepared are alcohol-free, so the tasty

enjoyment could be equally enjoyed among our Muslim friends too.

An atmosphere of openness,

spontaneity and generosity are genially felt as exuded by its casual yet

stylish dining experience, accentuated by artistic wall paintings gracefully

depicting the everyday life of an Italian. Awww, now it makes me wanna fly

to the city of Rom right away (=

As the Italian has it,

let’s start off the yummy-licious session with some notable antipasto prepared

fresh from the kitchen of Olive Garden.



Appetizer platter perfect

for sharing, consists of lasagna fritta, calamari and shrimp scampi fritta

where both available in classic or spicy version.LASAGNA FRITTA

Parmesan-breaded lasagna,

fried and served over alfredo, topped with parmesan and homemade marinara



Lightly breaded and fried,

tossed with garlic and lemon butter sauce or a spicy hot pepperCALAMARI (CLASSIC OR SPICY)

Tender classic calamari

lightly breaded and fried. Or, enjoy the spicy recipe with hot pepper slices and

red pepper flakes. Served with chili and marinara sauce.

Alternatively, all these 3

antipasti are also available ala carte in two type of servings- solo or sharing

plate, should you have a specific preference towards a particular nosh.

Ah, don’t forget to dip

the complimentary freshly baked breadsticks into the freshly prepared marinara,

homemade alfredo or sundried tomato alfredo.

Also do remember to sample

the homey soup made from scratch every morning, or the salubrious

house salad, comes free flow with each entrée ordered. Isn’t that a steal? Of

course, you could also go for ala carte for those of you who are currently on


Mouthwatering zuppe e insalate!


Tossed with signature

Italian dressing


Chow down on a creamy soup

made with roasted chicken, traditional Italian dumplings and spinach.

A special mention to this

soup of the soul- conspicuously enticing with house recipe which comes

tantalizingly palatable but yet not overly creamy, as might be fooled by its

milky consistency. Double thumbs up!


(MYR 29.90)

Oven-baked smoked

mozzarella, provolone and parmesan cheese, served with Tuscan bread.

Coming up next to whet

your palate further is the inhouse freshly baked flatbread pizza, or more

traditionally known as Piadina.



A fluffy dough base

lusciously spreaded with chicken ham, roasted red peppers and parmesan on

homemade marinara with a blend of Italian cheeses. Essentially simplicity as

its best! No wonder it’s Patrick’s favorite item, ma ma mia!


Cucina Classica- 3

classics all on one plate!

Chicken parmigiana,

lasagna and fettucine alfredo.



chicken thigh, fried and topped with marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese. Each

bite is mouthful with tender and juicy chicken meat. Well marinated too, yum



Fettucine tossed with

parmesan, fresh cream and garlic. Each strings of pasta is done al dente,

amusingly ticklish to the taste bud.


Prepared freshly daily with

layers of pasta, parmesan, mozzarella, ricotta and special homemade meat sauce.

It appears to us that the

lasagna is tad different from what we used to see usually- slightly flatter and

toppled down. And then we were told by the helpful crew- Tony, that the lasagna

layers are freshly made hot from the stove, hence explained the softer texture

of it. True enough, “Food tastes best at its freshest”. I find myself liking

every spoon of the velvety homemade pasta together with the light chunky bites

of the minced meat, which I don’t often succumb much to it. What a delightful



Hand-folded lasagana

filled with spinach, bell pepper and Italian cheeses topped with a tomato-basil

sauce, grilled chicken and a creamy parmesan sauce.



Maine lobster tail and

shrimp tossed with fettucine pasta in a lobster seafood cream sauce.

Crustacean fans would be

thrilled over this spectacular dish as they sink their teeth into the springy

lobster meat, allowing the sweet oceanic juices bursting liberally in their


Your mundane medallions no

longer lonely anymore with this inventive twist of pasta to it.



Grilled steak medallions

over fettucine alfredo tossed with grana cheese and fresh spinach. Finished off

with a balsamic drizzle and sundried tomatoes.

Alright, it’s high time to

call in the dolci- lovely dessert interpretation by our Italian folks.


3 FOR MYR 18 | 5 FOR MYR 29)

Inspired by pastry shops

across Italy- a selection of handcrafted Piccolli Dolci- “ Little dessert

treats”, layered with cake, mousse, pastry cream and berries.Choose from Lemon Mousse.......

Chocolate Mousse,Almond Tiramisu, Dark Chocolate Caramel Cream or Strawberry

& White Chocolate

Truly Italian artistry in

every layer!

Let's round up the epicurean affair with some unique blend of sweet tooth craving!


Espresso, Kahlua,

chocolate and Amaretto liquers blended with ice cream


(MYR 29.50)

Bailey’s Irish cream,

Kahlua, DiSaronno Amaretto and ice creamIn a nutshell, the repasts

are unimpeachably served up, staying true to their roots of making American’s

favourite Italian restaurant, and soon to be for Malaysian too. Highly

recommended for their slurp-worhty pasta dishes as well as their pollo and

pesce selections, not forgetting their carne specialties too.

Living up to modern

American Italian carte du jours, I foresee that it’s not gonna be too long

before I return for its other inviting dishes with my enthusiastic bon vivants

too. So are you ready to be onboard yet? Me, for one, are definitely looking

forward to it and eager for more sumptuous and quality delights of Olive Garden,

especially after previous gastronomic dining at its culinary paisano too, Michelangelo’s.

During one lazy weekend, we stumbled upon this new Korean restaurant when we are looking for Korean Wang BBQ as we were craving for the its homey Sundubu Jigae and would love to be back again.

No wonder how hard we try to locate back the same route that we used previously, we can’t find it and eventually, we realized that it has been taken over by another new owner of
this Jo's Family Korean Restaurant. Similarly operated by a Korean man in his late 30’s, this sajangnim could converse better in English, thus communication is made easier then, hehe.The interior has been slightly modified, while still retaining the bright hue of the environment. Apart from the usual Korean food and snacks, BBQ meat is also available for
meat lovers.


There was a promotion on going too where all dishes are priced at MYR 10 nett, except BBQ poultry. Then we think, why not give this new eatery a try then?

And so, we sat down and flipped through the menu (not too much choice but decent). Oh by the way, the kimchi is homemade by sajangnim. Be prepared for some sourish kick from his recipe smile Banchan(Korean side dishes) to go with the Korean staple, Sundubu Jigae.

Bean curb were bounteously served with silken texture, cooked together with clams, squid and egg in the mild spicy broth. I like my soup to be more spiced up with kimchi, and so I added in more for extra flavours.

Korean seafood pancake coming up next- Haemul Pajeon. 

Dished up with light crispiness on the crust. Adequately sapid and not too floury. Makes a hearty snack still.


Subsequently rounded up with a fusion plate of Tonkatsu.

The pork chop was thoroughly marinated and deep-fried till golden brown. It’s crispy on the outside with the tickling breadcrumbs while remaining juicy and tender in the inside. Served with salads as the side.


Tea is the best choice to clear up the well-fed tummy.

We had this soothingly aromatic Rose Tea instead of the usual Corn Tea as the latter has just run out of stock. Therefore, sajangname made us some chilled Rose tea to accompany our quick lunch. In fact, we love this more as it’s much more fragrant and palatable. Kamsahamnida.

For a price of MYR10 nett per dish currently, we couldn’t ask for more as the food served were good enough to make a wholesome meal, a much more wiser and better alternative than indulging in desserts all the time. Some break from the sugar rush may be?

Cheers for now and Carpe Diem! ❤ℒℴѵℯ❤
