Jade Dragon (Da Chang Jin) Korean Restaurant, Seremban

If you fancy something different, try this family-run Korean restaurant, Jade Dragon (Da Chang Jin) which serves very healthy and delicious food. We stumbled across this restaurant one morning after we had breakfast at Woon Peng.

After placing our order, we were served steam egg (complimentary) cooked in a stone pot and an assortment of side dishes (banchan). Banchan is the favorite part of my Korean meal; kimchi is served everytime whilst other side dishes may vary.

One of my favorite dishes here is the beef bulgogi (RM35). This is basically marinated beef pan fried with straw mushrooms, onions, glass noodles and spring onions. This dish is served with lettuce, raw garlic and green chillies and ssamjang (thick spicy paste) and you can wrap some beef in the lettuce. The last time we were here, the Korean lady boss told us that we could put some boiled rice in the wrap too. The beef is full of flavour - lovely!

There are 8 soup based dishes served here. Mum's favorite here is the kimchi jigae (RM15). It's a stew / soup made with kimchi, pork, tofu and glass noodles and served in a stone pot. One of the spicier dishes. Served with rice.
Bro's favorite is the dwenjang jigae (RM15), which is soup made with bean paste, tofu, la la (clams), and vegetable.

There are 5 seafood dishes; amongst them are Mae-un-tang (Korean Cod fish stew), Hae-Mul-Tang (Korean style seafood), and Nak-Ji Bo-Kum (stir fry octopus - RM25). I've only tried the latter octopus dish, which is served on a grill plate and cooked in a tomato based sauce. For me, this dish is just so-so, but my friends really like it.

I would also recommend the dolsot bibimbap (RM16); white rice served in a stone pot topped with zuchinni, straw mushrooms, doraji (bellflower root), spinach, soybean sprouts, gochujang (chilli pepper paste) and a raw egg. Mix them together and the raw egg will cook against the sides of the hot stone bowl. The best bit is the layer of rice touching the bottom of the pot which is golden brown and crispy.

You will be served complimentary water at the start of the meal. At the end of the meal, you will be served free dessert - watermelon and sik hye (rice/barley drink).
When you spend above RM50, you will receive a RM5 voucher which can be redeemed on a weekday.
The lady boss is very friendly, sometimes she even offers to babysit our baby whilst we eat! I really like the food here.
