Bulgogi Brothers (Korean BBQ) @ Paradigm Mall, Malaysia

Bulgogi Brothers is now open in Malaysia..

Bulgogi Brothers is a Korean casual dining restaurant in Korea known for its signature traditional Korean dish, Bulgogi or "fire meat". The first Bulgogi Brothers restaurant opened in Gang-Nam, south of Seoul in 2006. Now, the restaurant has over 35 outlets in South Korea, including one in Canada and 3 in Phillipines. In April 2012, Bulgogi Brothers was awarded by the prestigious National Brands Award for Best Korean Restaurant.

Bulgogi Brothers is a regular haunt among Korean celebrities and is known for its authentic Korean cuisine prepared by renowned Executive Chef Changbu Jeong . Among Chef Jeong's signature dishes are Hobak Juk (pumpkin soup), Sogogi Naengchae (cold salad with barbeque beef), Seoulsik Bulgogi (beef Bulgogi dish with vegetables), various Korean desserts and Bulgogi's signature drinks - the Black Raspberry Ade and Plum Ade.

Now, Malaysians too can get a taste of Bulgogi Brothers as they are set to open their doors to the public at 6pm on 11th August 2012! Their first outlet is at Paradigm Mall in Kelana Jaya. There will be other outlets opening at Pavilion KL (29 August), e@Curve (Sept) and MidValley Megamall (Nov).

Located right next to TGI. Fridays

Contemporary decor

Bokbunjajoo (RM58.50) - sweet red wine made from Korean black raspberries

1.6 million tonnes of kimchi consumed every year in Korea (approx. weight of 5 Petronas Towers)..

We were invited to a sneak preview of its menu yesterday at Paradigm Mall. However, please note that we did not try all the dishes shown in this blogpost as there was not enough food to go around. I will only comment on the dishes that I have tried.

Complimentary oksusu cha (corn tea)

Complimentary ban chan 

Korean kimchi

Complimentary corn, sugar snap peas and sweet potato - I think the corn has been boiled in vinegar water.

Haemul Doenjang Jjigae (RM26.90) - slow cooked doenjang broth or soybean stew with shrimps, soft shell crab and vegetables - didn't try so no comment

It does look very good though

After photos, it was taken to the kitchen to cook and then served

Janchi guksu (RM17.90) - known as "party noodles" in Korean as it is usually eaten during special occasions such as wedding and birthdays, served with seafood broth and garnished with lots of vegetables - I liked this.

Bulgogi bibimbap (RM29.90) - combination of beef and vegetables, served on top of rice and special spicy sauce. The spicy sauce is served separately so you can decide how spicy you want it to be. This was very good, the portion I got had the crispy bits from the bottom of the bowl so it was nice and crunchy. Beef is very flavorful.

Never burp alone..

Bulgogi Brothers Special (RM81.90 for 400g, RM121.90 for 600g) - the beef used here is Australian beef. This platter is a combination of Unyang and Gwangyang-style bulgogi. The Unyang-sik bulgogi is a considered royal cuisine and made in heart-shape, said to be very popular with couples in Korea. The Gwangyang-sik bulgogi is thinly sliced seasoned beef served with leeks, sweet potatoes, mushrooms and onions. These will be grilled tableside by the server as each table is equipped with a customized induction cooker. I managed to try a little of both, and preferred the Gwangyang-sik bulgogi, however I guess if I was going on a date with Hubby, the heart-shaped one would be pretty sweet ;P

Sizzle, sizzle

Yukhoe (RM45.90) - julienned raw beef marinated in a mixture of chillies, served with fresh pears and cucumber - no comment cos didn't try :(

Seoulsik Bulgogi (RM52.90) - beef marinated in their special bulgogi sauce made with apple and pear, served with glass noodles, enoki mushrooms, leeks and onions - this was my favorite dish, very nicely marinated and also possibly cos it was still hot when served to us.

Haemul pajeon (RM27.90) - Korean style pancake with seafood and green onions - didn't try so no comment

Soji-to (RM14.90) - the popular Mojito is given a Korean twist, made with soju instead of rum - didn't try so no comment.

Makguli cocktail (RM27.90) - sweet and milky makguli (rice wine) mixed with strawberry or pineapple liqeur - didn't try so no comment.

Full menu can be viewed on my Facebook page here, as well as full set of photos.

Opening times: 11am to 11pm.


Location: Bulgogi Brothers, GB13 & 13A, Ground Floor, Paradigm Mall, 1, Jalan Kelana SS7/26A, Kelana Jaya, 47301 Petaling Jaya, Selangor.

  1. Nice photos of the food, price seems quite reasonable too.

    1. Yeah Korean food in general is quite expensive, happy to see this was reasonably priced.

  2. Girl you are fast! Sorry I missed this one. I love Korean BBQ.

  3. Oo.. love Korean... will pay visit when its open near my place...

    Janchi Guksu noodles... is this served hot or cold? I love cold Korean noodles.

    1. From the descriptions I read online, I think it's served hot. But it was cold when we ate it cos we were taking photos of it. Nevertheless, it was still yummy.

  4. unfortunate you didn't get to try more dishes but more reason to visit this place at a later date! most of them look really tempting and sound new to me. unhyang-sik bulgogi is cute! :)

    1. Ah yes, I'll most probably visit their outlet in Pavilion KL once it opens ;)

  5. 'potong stim' many dishes u din try...d organiser shud be bombarded...hehe =)

    I love the Bulgogi bibimbap and the Seoulsik Bulgogi...BBQ anytime lar...but the Haemul pajeon looks underwhelming...not enuff garing...hehe =)

    Would love to try the Soji-to and Makguli cocktail...hic :P

    1. Hehe what to do... never mind, I look forward to the opening of their Pavilion outlet, since it will be more convenient for me. Paradigm Mall is a bit far for me, took me more than 40 mins to get there.

      I'd like to try the bibimbap and seoulsik bulgogi again too... wanna share share?

  6. I want to try the one at pavilion! Can't wait for it to open!

  7. here's crossing our fingers that by this time next year, bulgogi brothers will be a household name among fans of korean food in KL! and maybe there'll be branches in KLCC, etc, by then too :D

    1. I think they're planning to open quite a few outlets around KL... I think they'll do well since Korean food in general is quite expensive and theirs seem reasonably priced and tastes authentic.

  8. Wow! Love Korean food especially bim bim bap. Got introduced to this by a Korea friend when I was studying in the US and have been hooked ever since. Even thought of attending a Korean cooking class! Mich

    1. Mich, you should try cooking Korean food at home. I've made japchae and kimchi jjigae as well as my own kimchi at home, it's not that difficult at all!

  9. Everything looks so yummy!!! Arrgghhh...drooling!
    Bokbunjajoo is quite nice and good =)

  10. I just wonder isn't halal or non halal? coz I like to giving a try the food too since I like korean food too X3

    1. I think their meat is from halal vendors, but they serve alcohol hence they have a pork-free status.

  11. Was waiting for the cheesy, I HEART Unyang-sik bulgogi from you. LOL :P

  12. may i know what else do they offer?

    once they didn. I haven't really owned the mouse long enough to test the battery life, but Logitech claims it can run for up to two years on a single pair of batteries, and several other reviews I've found online attest to that fact.
