For whatever reason, it has taken me this long to write about Kangsane Korean Restaurant in Ampang despite having been there numerous times since more than a year ago. In fact, this is the Korean restaurant I most frequent in recent times, and there is a reason for it: simply the best Galbi (marinated beef ribs) anywhere!

nice ambiance, illustrated menu

Kangsane Korean Restaurant is situated right in the middle of Little Korea at Ampang, that interesting commercial square where you can find dozens of Korean restaurants, grocery stores, and even optical shops. This place is to Korean like Brickfields is to Indian. Parking is usually not an issue here.

Just like most other Korean BBQ restaurants, Kangsane serves various BBQ meat, stews, bulgogi, and of course, all these comes with plenty of Banchan (side dishes) that is the signature of Korean food. The must-order dish here would be the Galbi, I just couldn’t get enough of the succulent and perfectly flavored beef ribs.

I suggest that you always give them a call to make sure that the supply of Galbi is ample before heading there. We had to go for pork galbi on the last visit as the beef version ran out of stock, while it was still very good, the beef ribs is simply irreplaceable.

The other commendable dish is the samgyeopsal (pork belly), do start with this dish first if you also order galbi as the pork carries a more subtle taste that might be overpowered by the beef if you reverse the order.

Of course, a good Korean restaurant must also serve good banchan (side dishes), and the good thing about Kangsane is that they always have different banchan every time we go there. From anchovies to tofu, kimchi to some funny looking vegetables, they are always very delicious and accompanies the main dish very well. I also absolutely love their kimchi jjigae (kimchi soup)

Price wise, this place is pretty much in par with similar Korean restaurants. Some BBQ meat dishes, stews, and maybe some dumplings will usually cost around RM 40-50 per person for a table of 4-5. Very worth it though.

  16. hi there, i love your blog. really appreciate reviews on japanese food as I’m a very big fan of japanese cuisine.

    anyway, if you are ever in penang, there’s this one korean bbq buffet restaurant called SEOUL GARDEN situated in gurney plaza persiaran gurney. OMG, it’s really cheap for a variety of beef, chicken,seafood. a buffet lunch on a weekend would only cost you a mere rm25, rm20 on weekdays.

  17. hawa,
    Thanks! 😀

    OoO interesting. Usually I only indulge in hawker food when I’m back in Penang though.

  18. […] I love to have my grilled meat at Korean places, but since time is of the essence (Mell was waiting and it was the day before […]

  19. yeap it's me

    홍험탕 (Hong Hum Tang) would be my recommendation. It’s a clear but peppery hot mussels soup …with lotsa lotsa mussels for only RM25. Value !
