Sometime ago, I received an email from a reader, who suggested that I should try Restoran Kung Jung in PNB Darby Park since I like Korean food. I also received feedback from several blogger friends that the food there is good, hence Hubby and I went for lunch one day.
The menu was a mix of Japanese and Korean dishes. I was too lazy to pick a la carte dishes from the menu, and since I saw many people ordering the set lunch, I followed suit :P There were only 5 or 6 options for set lunch, each coming with unlimited refills of banchan and corn tea, a portion of grilled beef ribs (galbi), mains, fruits and Korean coffee / tea.
The beef ribs were not that great, unless you actually got a piece with some meat on them. This was Hubby's plate, he was luckier than me... I got mostly bone and gristle.
The banchan selection was pretty decent, from kimchi, anchovies, tofu, fish cake/ aubergine, mashed potato, beansprouts and spicy cucumber. We had refills of the kimchi, beansprouts and fishcake/aubergine.
Hubby's dolsot bibimbap set (RM32) was tasty. The sizzling claypot rice was good, laden with ingredients such as kimchi, spinach, beef (you can also opt for chicken), beansprouts and mushrooms with a raw egg. The gochujang (chilli pepper paste) is served separately, so you just add as much as you want. It is also served with a bowl of soup.
Very colorful - we like!
Mix well, let the raw egg cook against the sides of the hot stone bowl
It was a really hot afternoon, so I was drawn towards the naengmyeon (RM32), which is a cold noodle dish served in a large stainless steel bowl with iced tangy broth. It is topped with julienned cucumbers, Korean pear and half a boiled egg as well as a few slices of cold beef. The long and thin handmade noodles will be snipped tableside, for easier consumption. I have eaten this once in the Korean restaurant in Seremban but somehow I didn't enjoy it this time. It tasted a bit bland, I thought Hubby's dolsot bibimbap looked a lot more appealing.
Korean iced coffee
Or hot lemon tea
Verdict: The dolsot bibimbap was pretty good, however if overall price/ambiance/food was taken into consideration, I would have preferred to dine at Bulgogi Brothers.
Price: RM70 for 2 pax.
