So we found out that hot chick blogger Hayanna (suanie said so) posted an entry on this korean BBQ place her mom recently opened. Being possessed by the hungry ghost soul, we went to check out Woo Ga Chon Korean BBQ restaurant at Ampang last weekend.

Half a dozen of us went there, rojaks, v0ices, fox, paul, horng, and myself. The place is not terribly easy to find, and thanks to rojak’s excellent lead, we had to make several u-turns en route. Kinda made us look abit funny. But lets get to the juice, the food.

The deal is like this, you choose the types of meat you want for BBQ, and there’ll be a host of other companion dishes that follows, and those are bottomless. In a way, it’s a buffet that you never need to stand up, good for lazy buggers like most of you here. I mean, when you have to go to a regular buffet line for the 5th time, you do get a bit annoyed.

Don’t tell me you’re not drooling, noob.

We ordered beef, marinated beef, and “uh hwa jou” pork. The pork is actually kinda bacon, but in thicker slices, and fresh, not marinated or smoked. The staff did the BBQing for us, they usually make it to about medium rare before cutting it into bite size. If you want yours well done, just leave it on the pit for a few more minutes, it’s that easy.

The owner (Hayanna’s mom) showed us the proper way of dining Korean BBQ, get a piece of meat, dip in the sauce/seasoning, put in the leave + vege, add garlic if you like, put another type of sauce, wrap, eat, pwnage! It was really mouth watering.

Look at those boys enjoying, too bad Hayanna wasn’t there

The side dishes were too numerous to name, there were fried tong fun with chicken and mushroom (paul practically drank that,) few types of fried vege, miso soup with coagulated pork blood (best,) pickles, kimchi (of course,) and more. They were very good, and as soon as we finish a plate, the staff would be trying to shove 2 new plates in. You just simply can’t keep track of how much you have eaten.

The bill came and it was RM160 for 6 of us, or slightly less than RM 27 per pax. For this type of food, boy, it was well worth it. Highly recommended! Dont’ let the deco fools you, the food is way, way better than the setting, which is somewhat simple and plain. But why do you want to pay more for interior designing of a restaurant anyway unless you want to impress some high maintenance chicks.

Discuss : KY eats – Woo Ga Chon Korean BBQ – Hayanna’s

  1. […] At the fresh food section, they were offering dumplings (5 for 8 bucks), and glass noodle. Since I was planning to ‘tarpao’ lunch anyway, I paid RM 9 for the glass noodle. Pretty pricey, but just to try once, what the heck.. I remember the glass noodle I had at the Ampang Korean BBQ was really good. […]

    […] It was almost one year ago when I went to any Korean BBQ in KL, the Woo Ga Chon at Ampang, own by fellow blogger Hayanna’s mom. I’ve been to the same restaurant several times when my tongue is itchy for some Korean BBQ. However, Ampang isn’t exactly nearby where I stay, so when I was informed that they have just opened a branch in Puchong, I was delighted. […]

    Actually I have went one of the Korean Restaurant at Ampang,if not mistaken is called Mu Jin Jang not Kepong Jinjang lah….. The place just opposite Ampang point and mosts of the ppl called Korean Village.The restaurant is own by Korean and Malaysian which surprise me one of the partner is a Malay guy,not big deal rightbut they served pork ler…The foods there can said quite nice which compare others Koreans restaurant in KL.The best part is sometimes they have served with mint leaves which you can add in some meat with the mint leaves.This mint leaves actually import from Korean.I think mosts of Korean restaurant are serving alot of beef but this Mu Jin Jang also serve pork too,one of the famous dish is pork leg,damn…… but nice woh.Which dissapointed me is they didin’t serve beef tougue,sad…If you all guys next time go to Korean restaurant,should give a try on the beef toungue……
