I read about Haeun Khon restaurant on wAntAn productions a little while back and thought it’d be a place worth trying out. Despite staying relatively close to Amcorp Mall, I have only been to that place a couple times, one of which was for watching Ju On, they have the best cinemas for that sort of movie (atmosphere wise), but that’s another story for another day.

simple deco, nice illustrated menu

The restaurant is rather smallish and has a simplistic no-frill decoration of some korean flags, out-of-date posters, and some fake plan cherry plants to give you an impression that they tried to care about creating an atmosphere, but not quite entirely impressive. Then again, it is in line with the whole old school look of Amcorp Mall, and I really do care alot more about the food rather than the deco, which is why I was there anyway.

We ordered the recommended beef bulgogi set and the Samkyeh Tang (gingseng chicken soup) set for dinner. The sets came with four sides, including kimchi, tofu, some marinated mango, and some vege. The beef bulgogi came with rice and soup, too.

Samkyeh Tang and beef bulgogi

Both the meals were very good, the beef was marinated to perfection and not over cooked, leaving it tender and full of juicy flavor. The half a small-size chicken in samkyeh tang was very soft and the soap taste strongly of Korean ginseng. I devoured the half a ginseng completely, too (didn’t seem to help my stimana on the Hantu Bola futsal yet, however).

The side dishes were very good too, I am usually not a kimchi person, but the kimchi served was not too overly sour or spicy, I finished it, and throughly enjoyed. The dinner only cost RM 34.44 with the two set dinners and drinks. Bulgogi was RM 13.90 and Samkyeh Tang RM 14.90. There’s a 5% government tax, as usual, but to my delight, no 10% service charge.

leave no prisoner!

Amcorp Mall is pretty accessible, located next to the Taman Jaya lake, you can get there either via the LRT or well, you could drive. The parking is RM 2 per entry after 6pm on weekday, pretty reasonable. Give it a try, I myself will definately go there again.

Discuss : KY eats – Haeun Khon Korean Restaurant at Amcorp Mall

  1. Love the food there!
    (I think it’s very decently priced)

    It gets so super packed during lunch hours though…. sometimes have to wait very long for a table/cannot get a table.

  2. Glad you liked it. Is the SamGehTang all bitter like Ginseng usually is?

  3. wyejon,

    somehow not as bitter as the usual Chinese Ginseng soup, a little smoother but tasted very good nonetheless

  4. damn, u eat and eat yet u dont put on weight……..diu….time for COMBANTRIN to rid urself of all the worms….chuckle!

  5. Bah.. not really like korean food… 😛

  6. i’ve been a fan of this place since they were in the building in front of mandarin oriental. they had very few customers then (i was one of the rare regulars) but am glad they found a better place in amcorp. try their spicy fried squid and also battered fried veg.

  7. Kelvin,

    Thanks for the tips!

  8. I like your blog! So much information on where to eat. A must for any foodie… 😉

  9. Really nice food there but have to wait like really long during lunch. Love the little corner inside the shop where you can sit on the floor and makan. 🙂

  10. I always lepak there during my varsity years (UM)…my gang and I used to order Korean Fried Rice,cos it is the cheapest i think…Tried before the ginseng chicken soup, it was nice and delicious…

  11. […] Now, there are 2 ways you can have Korean food, the cheap way (like at Mu Gong He, Haeun Khon) or you can have a feast with the Korean specialty, the BBQ. Fresh meat don’t come cheap, but sometimes the urge on my taste buds overcome my financial brain cells. Like this particular meal. […]
