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.
Combination of Real Charcoal + Propane, Efficient
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.
So rojaks don’t have to get you to do a few u-turns to get there
Here’s the address, and of course, a highly professional map for your navigational needs.
